Top 100 final

Top 100 All-Time Adventure Games

Whew!  A hundred games.  And we bet some of your favourites didn’t even make the list.  Ours too! 

The plan is to revisit the Top 100 each year, adding new games, removing older ones, and shuffling the existing order as necessary.  It shouldn’t change too much year to year – these games are on it now for a reason! – but we’ll do our best to keep the list current from now on.  Think we missed an unheralded gem?  Let us know!  But this Adventure Gamers’ Top 100 All-Time Adventures list for 2011. 

Need a refresher?  Here’s the condensed Top 100 games list in all its glory.
