The Great Steam Roundup – Episode 7

Ya, another random assortment. It started out with me wanting to tackle all adventure games, but sadly I don’t really have that many left. And no, this isn’t some calling to arms for making adventure games (though I totally wouldn’t complain if it ended up forcing more out as a result), but I at least wanted to give you guys more of an idea of what’s available on steam.

E.V.O. – The Search For Eden

General Overview

In typical Enix fashion, the world absolutely cannot evolve and continue onward without divine intervention a la player. This time around, though, you get to play as an ever-evolving organism upon which you get to control its evolution. Could this quirky, awkward, semi-edutainment title actually be something halfway interesting or is it all the way boring?

Adventure Game of the Year – 1993

There are 21 games. This is a huge year for adventure games and if you already know about most of these, you’ll see why this was a ridiculous hard choice to make for top 3.

Adventure Game of the Year – 1992

There were 17 games this year. While certain titles were obvious runner ups for me, it took some time to decide #3. Sure, I already pretty much had in mind what I wanted for the top 2, but the 3rd was especially elusive for a time. This was an…interesting…year for adventure games. You’ll start to see more and more “pervert” titles on this list. I mean, sure, I liked games like Leisure Suit Larry, but some of these are just ridiculous.

Adventure Game of the Year – 1990

This time around I will changing things up a bit. I will only be doing a top 3 for each year and I’m hoping that will suffice as some years have barely any adventure titles released. I’m also trying to be as accurate as possible, which is proving to be difficult considering most of these are labeled either incorrectly or in poor chronological order on Wiki. In fact, let me know if something’s out of place or missing on these as I’ve been updating their “official” list with THEIR OWN INFORMATION…so yeah.

The first adventure game I ever played was Maniac Mansion with my favorite series still probably being Monkey Island. Once again, I will attempt, to the best of my ability, to produce when each game came out in America and on what systems. I’m also hoping I can have youtube vids embeded in the pics for each title as well as the box art. There were 13 titles this year, so let’s get started.

RPG of the Year – 1993

This year will be easy. Why? Because the only tough part about it is not highlighting certain games I know are great, but not the best. I went into this one expecting it to be as tricky as the last two years, then realized I knew exactly which 5 should be at the top within 30 seconds. There are 25 games, but you only need to remember these…

RPG of the Year – 1992

This time around I noticed there are more console titles and the SNES especially is getting a good start. Unfortunately, most of those titles don’t belong on a top 5 list. Sure, games like Mystic Quest and Soul Blazer are fun, but out of all the rest? Ha, no. Not too surprisingly, there are a lot of great PC RPGs this time around, making it pretty hard to call it in some cases. There are 22 titles this time, so let’s hop into it!
