1. Curses!
by Graham Nelson
(1993)
Average member rating: (97 ratings)

MathBrush says:

My favorite game, and the game that got me interested in IF.

2. Worlds Apart
by Suzanne Britton
(1999)
Average member rating: (73 ratings)

MathBrush says:

The only parser game that I've played that compares to reading a bestselling sci-fi book.

3. Spellbreaker
by Dave Lebling
(1985)
Average member rating: (42 ratings)

MathBrush says:

My favorite Infocom game, a giant magic-fueled puzzle game.

4. To Hell in a Hamper
by J. J. Guest
(2003)
Average member rating: (78 ratings)

MathBrush says:

For my sense of humor, this is the funniest game I have played.

5. Babel
by Ian Finley
(1997)
Average member rating: (117 ratings)

MathBrush says:

A great sci-fi mystery. You wake up on a cold metal floor in a hallway wearing a hospital gown with no memory of what happened before. Helped to popularize amnesia genre (which I like).

6. Endless, Nameless
by Adam Cadre
(2012)
Average member rating: (36 ratings)

MathBrush says:

Cadre's largest game. Great text effects and numerous endings.

7. Hadean Lands
by Andrew Plotkin
(2014)
Average member rating: (30 ratings)

MathBrush says:

I couldn't put this down when I first played it. Engrossing, giant alchemy game.

8. Creatures Such As We
by Lynnea Glasser
(2014)
Average member rating: (58 ratings)

MathBrush says:

Excellent Choicescript game discussing the nature of art in the context of video games.

9. Adventure
by William Crowther and Donald Woods
(1976)
Average member rating: (78 ratings)

MathBrush says:

The first, and still one of the best. It is surprisingly modern, especially in the ending, and especially compared to other 70's games.

10. Theatre, by Brendon Wyber (1995)
Average member rating: (68 ratings)
MathBrush says:

There are several games I considered for the 10th spot, including Anchorhead, Stone Harbor, or Rogue of the Multiverse. But Theatre was a game that really intrigued me, so I'll put it on the list.
