    Maybe it's uncool to like it, but I thought Myst was a very good game, and it was certainly a point and click.

    There's quite a few I left off too.

    Grim Fandango!
    It's an adventure game.. I wouldn't really call it a point and click. Do you even have a cursor in that game?

    Then what is it you're going for? King's Quest II-IV (and I, unless you're talking about the remake) used a parser, and only on some platforms was there a cursor for movement only. The same goes for Quest for Glory I (and II, I think), as well as The Colonel's Bequest.

    No interest in the Space Quest or Police Quest series? What about Leisure Suit Larry?

    If you're looking for a list to jog your memory, take a look at http://scummvm.org/compatibility/.

    You beat me to those. Loved those games.
    The only other I can think of at the moment would be Silverload.

    The more mainstream ones in line with the ones above...

    - The Longest Journey (original not Dreamfall)
    - Codename: Iceman
    - Rex Nebular
    - Les Manley series
    - Altered Destiny

    Could go on forever with others...

    Just for fun look for Riana Rouge.

    Someone mentioned Tex Murphy but not sure if the meant the whole series or what.

    Mean Streets
    Martian Memorandum

    I think the rest of the series is more adventure based rather than point and click, but I never played them so I can't say for sure.

    Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes. I just mentioned this in another thread, I managed to play through about half of it before it crashed but I liked what I played. As already mentioned, add The Neverhood.

    Why is Lure of the Temptress listed? That sucked.

    Whoops. You're right, but I've got the VGA remakes of 1-3 and I wasn't even thinking about the older official ones. Quest for glory one had a VGA remake by Sierra and an unofficial but licenced remake of the second one. But Colonels Bequest shouldn't be there

    Al Lowe and Josh Mandel wrote the text. That should tell you it's worth your time.

    The CD version seems to have LESS text than the floppy version though. Most of the jokes were cut out.

    If you're going to include first-person mouse-driven adventures, don't forget the Myst series and The Manhole. There's also those later games by The Adventure Company, like The Crystal Key, but I don't remember them being particularly good.

    Also, Torin's Passage, Shannara...

    There's a series called Dare to Dream, but I could never find very much info on it. Epic Games had the first volume released as shareware, and I had the second one on floppy, but I never found the third one. They might still have it at Epic Classics, but I know they wanted like $30 for it.

    D - I'm not sure how well it has aged, but it was one of my first PC games and will always have a special place in my heart. I think it was love it or hate it when it was originally released, but I just remember being completely fascinated by it.

    I enjoyed Hell: A Cyberpunk Thriller, on the 3DO, even though it's full of bugs and glitches.
