I love adventure games, but being the retro guy that I am, most of the adventure games I have played and love are from the 90's or are sequels to some of those games (for example Broken Sword 4).

I'm not sure why I haven't invested so much interest in more modern adventure games. I guess initially because the golden era seemed to have died, and then eventually because for a few years I didn't have much money to put aside from games.

I've decided that I want to catch up with the adventure game scene and give some of the newer games a try, but I don't really know where to start, so I am here for your advice.

I want to know, of games released in the past decade, what's good. Not just what you enjoyed, but what you REALLY enjoyed; what you would consider to be a modern classic and completely timeless game.

Feed me!

Timeless is much to ask for, but from the last decade I was most impressed by these games (others weren't though, so that doesn't say much):
Aura (2004)
Black mirror (2004)
Dark fall, the journal (2002)
the Filmmaker (2010)
Overclocked (2007)
Scratches (2006)
Sherlock Holmes the awakened (2006)(or nemesis 2007)
a Vampyre story (2008)

Now I notice most have a dark/horror theme. I wouldn't say that is specifically my preference, hmm...

Hi Joee,
This is strictly my own personal reaction, mind you, however I recently finished playing Lost Horizon and in my book it rates with the classics. I enjoyed playing it as much as those early games with George Stobbart, Gabriel Knight, Guybrush Threepwood, and I have now added Fenton Paddock to that list. As the lead character in the game, he has his own charm and humor and cool. I really liked him and hope he will show up in another game or two or ...
