    Gaming Top Fives

    Post by genkicoll on Sat Jun 03, 2017 1:05 pm

    "What are your five favorite games?"  How many times have we been asked that question?

    I am simply incapable of listing only five games, as I love so many games, and it really depends on my mood at the time.  So, instead of just your five favorites, I'd like to ask...

    WHAT ARE YOUR FIVE FAVORITE GAMES PER GENRE? 
    Here are some genres (please feel free to add your own and/or combine!):

    ADVENTURE-LITE (CASUAL)

    POINT-AND-CLICK ADVENTURES

    ACTION-ADVENTURES

    PUZZLE-ADVENTURE

    INTERACTIVE HIDDEN OBJECT

    STRAIGHT HOG

    MATCH-3

    JIGSAW

    PUZZLE (LOGIC)

    STRATEGY

    SIM/TYCOON

    BUILD-A-TRIBE

    3D PLATFORMER

    SIDE-SCROLLING PLATFORMER

    TEXT or MOSTLY TEXT-BASED

    Fill in the rest later?!? OH! I've hardly even heard of most of these groups! Embarrassed

    I like Dragon Cave, online adoption game. Midnight Castle, online HO game. Both free. 

    And HOPAs (Hidden Object Puzzle Adventures)

    My Top 5 of these would be:

    The entire series of:

    Edgar Allan Poe's Dark Tales
    Hidden Expedition
    Grim Tales
    Mystery Case Files
    Midnight Mystery

    One-offs:
    I'll get back to you when I can narrow it down to less than 100.  Elk grin

    I also occasionally play Heartwild Solitaire, Fishdom 3 (Match 3), Rainbow Mosaics and Patchworkz (specialized jigsaw) and Adelantado (building)

    The entire series on these, or just the ones that are interactive?  Even I don't like the earliest MCF games ;D

    Actually, I didn't mind them, for what they were. (MCF). And nah, only really love Hidden Expedition since the EIPIX takeover. Though the Island one was good.
