There are so many p'n'c that have slipped into the mists of time , from early attempts at icon-driven adventures like Zzzz through innovative - largely forgotten - Sierra titles on the 16 bit and PC machines like Willy Beamish and Heart Of China (not to mention the more well known 'Quest' and Larry series) , the simply sublime Delphine with Cruise For A Corpse ,Future Wars and Operation Stealth . There are also plenty that used FMV like Tex Murphy , Under A Killing Moon and the brilliantly funny Toonstruck , and of course all of the fabulous Lucasarts tites. And that's just for starters!

I'd love to see a return of "Top 25" anyways and this seems like a very good idea. Although a "Top 25 non-Lucas Arts PnC" would probably be a better idea as there'd be 8-12 Lucas Arts games in it otherwise.

I think the genre is making a bit of a comeback, making the timing great for a feature.

There's this thread: http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtop ... =2&t=15521

But it's not a top list.

I'm all in for it!

I'll do my own top cause I haven't played that many:

1: Gabriel Knight 2- The Beast Within
2: Gabriel Knight 1
3: Space Quest 6
4: Phantasmagoria
5: Leisure Suit Larry 6: Shape Up or Slip Out!
6: Scratches

Ooh, this'd make for a wonderful read!

Especially if they included the over-looked ones such as Toonstruck and Hand of Fate.

I'd be all for an education in this area! Playing Monkey Island and (as of tonight) Beneath The Steel Sky on my iPod Touch and would love to see what else there is out there!

Yes please, a top 25 would be great. I love these games and been playing them for over 20 years. I'm still not very good at them though!
