There are some games I think everyone should play--as I play through them, I'll add the best games here.

1. Photopia
by Adam Cadre
(1998)
Average member rating: (415 ratings)

gettera says:

This isn't really a game as much as it is a literary short story. One of the best uses of interactive fiction to tell a story I've ever come across.

2. Galatea
by Emily Short
(2000)
Average member rating: (230 ratings)

gettera says:

Absolutely fabulous, Emily Short's dialogue-based game was the first IF I was exposed to, and as a result I hold every game to impossibly high expectations.

3. Zork, by Tim Anderson, Marc Blank, Bruce Daniels, and Dave Lebling (1979)
Average member rating: (25 ratings)
gettera says:

There are dozens of iterations of Zork, but this one is my favorite. Any version of Zork is a must-play, just for historical reasons, but it's fun to explore this massive world.

4. Spider and Web, by Andrew Plotkin (1998)
Average member rating: (207 ratings)
gettera says:

This one is an excellent puzzler, and I have one crucial piece of advice: save often, especially near the end.
