Did your favorites make the cut?

There was a time when everybody was looking at adventure games to introduce crazy technical innovations, explore unconventional stories, or just give us a strong argument against our dismissive parents who considered all games juvenile and insubstantial. Since the golden years of the graphic adventures, we’ve seen certain trends come and go, other genres spliced into the genre’s DNA, and adventure games evolving into a variety of experiences that sometimes have little in common with their early predecessors.

Richard Cobbett, a longtime fan of adventure games and their close offspring, has recently compiled a comprehensive list of 29+ titles that all fans of the genre should check out. Newcomers and veterans are treated to an introduction to the history of adventure games, some advice on how to get started, and a list of the standouts, broken down into sub-categories for convenience: The Classics, Story-driven, Puzzles & Exploration.

Take your pick: there are all-around legends like The Secret of Monkey Island or Beneath a Steel Sky, masterpieces of storytelling like Grim Fandango or The Walking Dead, brain wreckers like Myst or Zork: Grand Inquisitor, and deliberately paced experiences like Gone Home.

Plenty of developers continue to be fascinated by the narrative possibilities of adventure games, even if they don’t feel like adhering to their original formula. These 29 games (and the additional honorable mentions) are both celebrated classics and the product of experimentation with innovative ideas and are all more than worth your time.

So, how many of these have you already played and what others would you add to IGN’s list, fellow adventurers?

The Witcher series, Pillars, of Eternity, Dex, and more.

There’s a big Role-Playing Week ahead of us, everyone. The public beta for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is approaching fast, and we decided to kick things off a little early with a big Role-Playing Sale that will get you in the mood for some sword-clashing and fireball-slinging.

Start by immersing yourselves in the sprawling Witcher universe, with up to -85% on all games in the series, including The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt GOTY, the game which first introduced us to the wonderful addiction that is GWENT.

Next, take a trip to Grimrock for some hardcore dungeon-crawling, and then find yourself a vantage point with a sweet isometric view: it’s time to dive into Obsidian’s modern classics. Both Pillars of Eternity and Tyranny offer an immersive experience not to be missed by veterans of the legendary Infinity engine games while introducing us to completely new and equally compelling fantasy worlds.

But that’s not everything: keep an eye out for hidden gems that shouldn’t go unnoticed, plus new additions arriving this Wednesday.

The Role-Playing Sale will last until May 28, 1 PM UTC.

Conquer space four times over, annihilate your opponents with mechanical armies!

Traditionally, adventure games are ideal for anyone who enjoys cerebral challenges mixed with deliberately paced storytelling. Phase II of our Weekly Sale remains fundamentally cerebral while adding a little bit of urgency to the mix, with two highly acclaimed 4X and RTS series that should keep the grey cells busy and the adrenaline flowing.

Still hailed as the gold standard for space 4X games, the Master of Orion series recently returned in a fully modernized version powered by high production values and a deep love for the timeless originals.

Total Annihilation boldly overhauled the resource gathering mechanics of the RTS genre, and whether it chronicles massive battles between mechanical or mythical monsters, it remains endlessly enjoyable and undeniably addictive.

That’s not all, though, Hybrid Wars and Massive Assault also got added to the list. Better act fast – there are just a few days left to grab what you want from the entire selection!

Did you miss Monday’s launch of our Weekly Sale? Check it out – it has plenty of retro-styled adventures and a stylish new JRPG.

The Weekly Sale will last until May 22, 4:00 PM UTC.
