Graphic Adventures: Some interactive walkthroughs

Here is my humble tribute to a gaming genre that is still my favorite (with difference).

Richard Moss wrote an excellent history of the genre but, in a nutshell, it started with the Colossal Cave text adventure, Ken and Roberta Williams added graphics with Mistery House (1980) and animation with King's Quest (1984). When typing sentences was replaced with clicking over verbs, action icons (walk, take, use...) or objects in the screen, the genre started to be called "point-and-click adventures". Cornerstones in that change were Deja Vu (1985) and Maniac Mansion (1987). In the 1980s the genre was king, but from the 1990s the Graphic Adventures gradually dissapeared from the shelves. Companies like Pendulo Studios and Revolution Software, fans of the genre and non profit groups continued producing excellent Adventures, keeping the genre alive.

These are the games I've played or would like to play. It includes the major milestones in the history of the genre. Download DosBox for playing some of the old games in modern systems.
