Adventure without a doubt.

Almost all of the most memorable characters, stories and humour, come from adventure games.

Aah - to only feel again what I felt after completing the likes of Broken Sword, Grim Fandango, Zork Grand Inquisitor, The Longest Journey and Gabriel Knight. When I completed these games, it felt like someone had just died for me - I was empty inside.

No other games touch me like adventures.

I wanted to cry after completing The Longest Journey - I couldn't believe it was the end.

Adventures are my escape from life's misery.

Oh where are the adventures now ....
Thought I was the only one *sigh*

I'm both surprised and pleased to see how the majority of the votes are for adventure. Makes me depressed when I read or hear about adventure being a "dying genre" . I like to think it's a phase and one day ppl will realise how amazing it is to really use your little grey cells to explore fantastic stories[/b][/quote]

I tried the same poll here, but adventure games doesn't seem to be as popular there as it is here. Probably because most of us here are nostalgics

I've been buying up CD-versions of all my favorite adventure games I used to play when I was younger +some that I missed. So far I've gotten:

Kyrandia 1, 2 & 3
Broken Sword 1, 2 & 3
Gabriel Knight 1, 2 & 3
Simon the Sorcerer 1, 2 & 3D
Discworld 1, 2 & Noir
Myst 1, 2 & 3
Syberia 1 & 2
Star Trek - 25th Anniversary
Star Trek - Judgement Rites
Longest Journey
Grim Fandango
The Dig
Day of the Tentacle
Sam and Max
The Feeble Files
The Quivering

I'm still looking for Runaway, Monkey 1, 2 & 3, Bioforge and Neverhood. I'll wait until after summer with those though.

It was Abandonia that made me realize how much fun I used to have with these kinds of games. Thanks Abandonia.

All in all I've spent ?200 (including shipping costs), which isn't that much considering what I've gotten ;-)
The reason I've had to collect them all again was that I was dumb enough to sell them once... :ranting:
