I will start off by saying that 2010 was a poor year for adventure games with few released games. Out of the few released there were even fewer of any quality (IMO). So its not surprising that my Top 5 is mostly Independent games as they seem to be only ones that give me an all around enjoyable play of late.

#1. Black Mirror 2
#2. DarkStar
#3. Rhem 4
#4. Slip Space
#5. The Filmmaker

Very few adventures released this and even fewer released in NA. I only played two new games this year and both of them were from Independent Developers. Both were enjoyable and I enjoyed them very.

1. Incident at ROANOKE

2. Puzzle Bots

1. The Journey Down: Over The Edge
2. Technobabylon – Part I
3. Nelson Tethers: Puzzle Agent (could be considered more of a puzzle game than adventure)
4. Puzzle Bots
5. I was a Vegas Showgirl

And so far that's it.

Hopefully, during Christmas I'll have time to play through Darkstar and Gray Matter.

Oh, and in the separate category of remakes:

1. Ben Jordan: Paranormal Investigator - Case 2 Deluxe
2. Secret of Monkey Island 2 SE

Hmm, here's my list:

# 1 - Lost Horizon
# 2 - Lost Horizon (I played it a second time!)
# 3 - Puzzle Bots
# 4 - The Whispered World

End of my list as these are the only adventure games I played to a finish this year. So, it's my thinking that Lost Horizon should get 2 votes from me, considering the few games I played. The game certainly deserves them.

Igor thanks for reminding me that Ben Jordan Paranormal Investigator had been remade.

I've only played Incident at Roanoke and The Filmmaker. I enjoyed both, but I doubt I will like any 2010 release better than The Filmmaker. That game was everything I hoped for and more.

Got Whispered World on the shelf though and the year is not over yet.

Of course they are . Here's a review of TJD for example.

Out of the 5 only Nelson Tethers could be considered not a pure adventure game. Still it was reviewed on most adventure games sites.

GreyFuss yes Puzzle Bots is an adventure game. I enjoyed it very much. A bit on the short side. Someone who doesn't like 3rd person, cartoony graphics or mushy stuff in thier gameplay probably wouldn't enjoy it as much.

mindysue I see that you played Whispered World and HandsFree you have it on your to play list. I would be interested in your thoughts about the game. The screenshots from the game look fantastic.

About Puzzle Bots: It is an adventure game by Wadjet Eye Games, home of The Blackwell Series. So far there are 3: The Blackwell Legacy, Blackwell Unbound, and The Blackwell Convergence, great games. There is a fourth game in the works that might be ready in time for Christmas, too soon to say for sure.

So my "nice try" didn't work, too bad.

The Whispered World was an interesting game but I found it hard to play as I needed the walkthrough for most of it. Part of my problem was that many of the scenes were too dark for my eyes so I got lost a lot and rather than make a wrong move I followed the walkthrough. I found the ending to be very poignant. I can't say why as it would be a spoiler for those who haven't played it yet, although their reaction might not be the same. This is a third person game.

definitely lost horizon. That was the best fun I have had in a long time. I replayed it several times, each time enjoying it more. Should be game of the year.

Hmmm, I don't believe I've seen the Top 10 games for 2009 - anyone know where I can find such a list?

The reason I'm asking this is cuz now that the pre-Christmas crunch is here, I'm playing "catch-up" by acquiring these games from top 10 lists of 2009 and 2010 which I missed getting as I spent most of 2009 saving up for my macbook pro and paying off a family vacation where Mom had paid my way.

Alien we did not do a Top Five new adventure games played last year. We did do a list of all the adventure games that we played in 2009. That thread can be found Here. We will start another games played list in 2010 after Christmas so start getting that list put together.

1. Runaway: A Twist of Fate. Nice to see this series finally come to an end. (or did it?)
2. Black Mirror 2
3. The Whispered World. (I might have put this one at #2 but BM2 was a much easier game) Evil or Very Mad
4. Dark Flight. Call it what you like, but there's something about this series that really keeps my attention.
5. AofM Cards of Destiny. I would have given this one a lot more thought had I known at the time that it was to be the last of the series.

Well in 2010 I played:

Symbiocom,
Oakhaven Plantation,
Liath,
Quiero Morir,
Cosmos Quest 1,
Theatre 1,
Theatre 2,
Theatre 3,
Theatre 4,

The reason I didn't play very many games (and finish them) was b/c in between I was doing screenshot captures of my DVD movies, doing comic books, and surfing all my gaming and computer-related internet sites (and posting).

Not sure that any of those games were released in 2010 let alone all being adventures.

I thought you were playing any year's release, GF. And just to let you know, all these games I played in 2010 were all adventures.

Alien if you would read the first post it is the top five 2010 Releases that you have played. Teatro a free game is the only game that you listed that was released in 2010. The only information I can find on Quiero Morir ( I Want to Die) is an action game. Symbiocon and Liath were released in 1998, Intrigue at Oakhaven Plantation and Cosmos Quest 1 were released in 2006.

If Teatro was released in 2010 and is adventure that you feel deserving of the Top 5 Adventure Game of 2010 then of course it will be added to the list. Very Happy

Strange that this game is listed as "action" - I recall playing it very clearly, and it's rather short, you walk around collecting stuff to put in inventory, talk to people, go here, go there, but there is absolutely no fighting of any kind in this game. It's a very easy game to win (provided you use a w/t, which I did).
