Intelligent Systems - Fire Emblem
I love that game!  Even though it doesn't seem to like to reward my unorthodox techniques (pitting melee fighters against spell casters etc).

It can actually work, if you are lucky enough. All due to the Resonating Neural Grenade's whim, like always.

I mean, I don't get recognition for the unorthodox play, though I get nice stars for "survival".  Hahahahaha...

I thought 7 days made no sense and it had that god damn towel rack puzzle (why THAT when you have a perfectly good knife in the dining hall). Honestly notes is the best of the set.

Given the absence of topic for the welcome (maybe I just have not found it) - will welcome all, as I am new to your community =)

On the topic - the game that still take my breath away - classic first Starcraft, Jagged Alliance 2, and of course Doom Rogue Like =) (because the original Doom has become boring)

Well true, a lot of adventure games have slipups like that--but the thing I like so much about Chzo Mythos is mainly the deepgoing story and genious atmosphere.
Indeed 5days and 7days had plot holes here and there and things that don't really make sense; luckily these have been cleverly patched in notes and 6days. :)

Other than DoomRL, I am very slowly working my way through a list of semi-recent popular Interactive Fiction games. Some are really good, but I invariably end up spoiling half the puzzles to see the ends of the stories and try out the next one.

Tsk.
You must hate me, I've never even played the original Doom.

Owww.  How could you not play the original Doom?  You should at least try it, since it is such an influential game.

You can even run it under the more modern source ports like prboom or vavoom to get more bells and whistles that make it less like that old 90s game and something like a low-end modern FPS.  =D
