    Default 09/11 Top-10 Text Based Games

    You have entered a dark and musty room. There is a strong odor coming from a chest of drawers. Across the room is an antique desk where a somewhat outdated PC is mysteriously turned on showing a list of Top-12 Text Based Games behind a dimply lit, dusty monitor.

    What do you want to do?

    Before you insult a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you insult him, you'll be a mile away, and have his shoes.

    Emerald Isle? Good to see L9 represented.....
    But, I'd plump for Snowball, Return and Worm (Silicon Dreams trilogy)

    I agree. Planetfall should have made the list (behind Zork of course)

    Probably my favorite company was Level 9 and my favorite game was Return to Eden on the C64.
    Also - shouldn't the "Denis..." title be "Denis Through the DRINKING Glass" not "Looking Glass"?? Or are there 2 games with similar titles?

    You have entered a dark and musty room. There is a strong odor coming from a chest of drawers. You open one drawer and there it is... STETSON! :-)
