Funny thing: I don’t consider myself a gamer. Of course I play games, but they don’t take a lot of time away from me. And I don’t play those modern AAA titles like The Witcher you know.
I do like adventure games, so here is the short list of the best adventure games in my opinion. I don’t pretend on ultimate truth, it’s just the games I like which influented me.
The games aren’t sort by their hotness; it’s just a random ordered list.
1. Tomb Raider II
This is the best Tomb Raider chapter with good puzzles. I played this game on Sony Playstation a long time ago and sometime I replay it on PC.
You’re a lawyer of the owner of a safe factory. He is died and you have to find his will which is inside his mansion. It sounds easy but he had a bad sense of humor and placed it on the end of the line of puzzle of safes he ever produced.
Masterpiece made by Checz studio Amanita Design. The pathetic story about a small robot in the big machine city. If you like adventure games and you’ve never played this, oh then you don’t like adventure games.
The mind-blowing puzzle game based on some tricks of view angles.
5. Monument Valley.
Maybe the best puzzle game ever. These guys took the Escher’s ideas and fullfilled they as a game.
6. Year Walk
This is very special game about an ancient Scandinavian ceremony, when a man go to the forest and stay here for some days to have a talk with fairies. Creepy and narrative.
The misterious escape series by Mateusz Skutnik. These are the small flash games, 10 parts in main series.
8. Valiant Hears
The story about The World War I by Ubisoft. Maybe this is more interactive story than a game but it’s excellent anyway.
Everybody knows that game. No comments.
The masterpiece from creators of Limbo. The game with very advanced narrative which asks more than answers. Very funny to read these tons of fanat theories about what is going on in the game.
11. The Wolf Among Us
The interactive comics about the city of magical beeings, Fables. Usually I consider this genre boring but this one is very good.
12. Samorost 3
Strange places, cute characters, a kind of Little Prince’s mood. By Amanita Design.
13. Lumino City
This is the game totally made of paper and captured on a camera.
14. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
You control two brother at the same time. They cooperate and help each other. I consider it the on of the best adventure games of the 2015.
15. The Room
The game series full of mechanisms and hiding places. And of course it has a misterious story.
