Diversity in IF
by The Xenographer - 22 votes for 13 games, last vote on February 15, 2016; created on July 15, 2012

"Most English-language IF that's set in something resembling the real world seems to deal with vaguely WASP-y types in the US, the UK, Australia, or Canada. What are some works that explore different settings from these and/or characters..."

Lost Treasures of the IF Comp
by Molly - 15 votes for 12 games, last vote on June 9, 2015; created on June 21, 2012

"It seems that for every Comp game that's still talked about today (e.g., Slouching Towards Bedlam, Shade, Photopia, etc.), there's ten or so that have been almost completely forgotten; some of them even placed in the top ten or higher...."

Comfort Food IF
by Molly - 22 votes for 16 games, last vote on December 15, 2015; created on June 11, 2012

"Lately I've been chasing away the blues by playing through my IF backlog. This made me wonder, what IF do you play as a pick-me-up? Maybe it's something that calms and soothes you, maybe it's really funny, or maybe it just distracts you..."

The Modern Zorkalikes
by Ghalev - 17 votes for 9 games, last vote on November 30, 2014; created on June 2, 2012

"My desire is straightforward, but proving difficult to satisfy. I want games that are like the Zork games might have been, given a more contemporary set of design ideals. It seems to be an abandoned playing field in some ways, as if the..."

"Camp" Games
by Pinstripe - 15 votes for 12 games, last vote on January 17, 2017; created on April 15, 2012

"Games which have, or might be considered to have, a camp aesthetic or sense of humor. "Camp is a certain mode of aestheticism. It is one way of seeing the world as an aesthetic phenomenon. That way, the way of Camp, is not in terms of..."

Absolute worst IF
by NOM3RCY - 7 votes for 6 games, last vote on January 14, 2013; created on April 11, 2012

"There's a surprising lack of a "worst IF" poll. I felt that I had to make it. We've all played the classics, the Colossal Caves, the Zorks, the Anchorheads, the Slouching Towards Bedlams. What are the games that you should never play?"

A poll for games which aren't normally on polls.
by Pinstripe - 30 votes for 17 games, last vote on July 8, 2015; created on April 10, 2012

"There are some games which are ubiquitous. A poll for funny, happy games? Lost Pig will be there. A poll for beautiful, dramatic games? Photopia always makes it. Conversational games? Galatea. Artsy games? Pretty much anything by Zarf...."

Your very first game.
by DustyCypress - 60 votes for 33 games, last vote on February 22, 2017; created on March 28, 2012

"Do you still remember when you played your very first IF? How did you get drawn (and perhaps addicted) to IF and have been playing still? What was the title that started it all for you? I started with a collection called "The Adventure..."

PC's personality integrated with the story
by JasonMel - 61 votes for 33 games, last vote on June 29, 2016; created on March 27, 2012

"I would like to be able to recommend to someone many examples of interactive fiction in which the player character is far from a cipher or an everyman or everywoman, but is instead a character with a definite personality within a game..."

Deep fictional worlds
by Kenji Yamada - 20 votes for 9 games, last vote on December 24, 2014; created on March 25, 2012

"I'd like to play more games set in fictional worlds with deeply-imagined cultures and history. Implementation depth would also be a plus."

Sex in non-adult IF
by Ferret From Hell - 25 votes for 18 games, last vote on June 3, 2016; created on March 20, 2012

"It struck me the other day that sex is one thing that actually seems to feature rarely in IF. What games are there, other than out and out AIF, that give prominence to sex or sex scenes? The only ones that immediately spring to mind are..."

Great Escapes
by JonathanCR - 26 votes for 10 games, last vote on January 4, 2015; created on February 21, 2012

"Everyone knows that "escape the room" games and puzzles are an IF cliché. But which are the best examples of this classic genre?"

Games part of an unfinished series
by Jonathan Blask - 20 votes for 18 games, last vote on March 9, 2015; created on January 15, 2012

"I think it is both funny and interesting when games bill themselves as "Part # in the [blank] series" (and other games are never written). It is fun to speculate what directions those future games may have gone. This poll is a memorial..."

More than it appears to be...
by dacharya64 - 71 votes for 30 games, last vote on January 6, 2017; created on January 14, 2012

"I'm looking for games that aren't exactly what they seem. Perhaps they come across as simple or romantic or anything really, the point is that things take a turn for the worse (or perhaps the better) and everything begins to change...."

Apocalypse How
by katz - 12 votes for 7 games, last vote on December 7, 2014; created on January 2, 2012

"Post-apocalyptic games: equal parts cliche and fun. Authors are free to dispense with pesky NPCs, complicated modern technology, and implementing working everyday items. Players can have no inhibitions about acting like murderous..."

Speed IFs that are awesome
by trojo - 35 votes for 19 games, last vote on May 31, 2016; created on December 27, 2011

"Expectations for Speed-IFs are generally low, but sometimes games written as Speed-IFs are in fact awesome-- not just "awesome for a Speed IF" but truly worthwhile. List some favorites here."

Games with good magic system
by RedHatter - 36 votes for 13 games, last vote on January 5, 2017; created on December 7, 2011

"I'm looking for some games with a good magic system. Doesn't have to be at brilliant as Savoir-Faire but consistency would be nice."

Christianity in IF
by Bainespal - 42 votes for 22 games, last vote on January 18, 2017; created on November 17, 2011

"Sam Kabo Ashwell's statement in his recent review of Cana According to Micah that "the best works dealing prominently with Christian themes are written by non-Christians" made me curious. Perhaps a list of games with serious Christian..."

forgotten gems
by Marius Müller - 35 votes for 20 games, last vote on March 5, 2017; created on October 25, 2011

"I'm looking for games that don't show up in the IF histories or recommended lists, for what reason whatsover. Old games that maybe weren't boundary-pushing or noteworthy, but still give you a fun play experience. If you ever thought..."

No Mazes, please!
by AndyC - 30 votes for 17 games, last vote on July 26, 2013; created on October 10, 2011

"I am a returning player to IF (which I loved 30 years ago) having recently discovered the fantastic Frotz for the iPad. Looking at some of the old games again has really blown me away. I don't enjoy drawing maps but I love reading good..."
