NPC-less Exploration
by Dannii - 20 votes for 12 games, last vote on December 17, 2017; created on September 2, 2012

"Supposedly one of IFs strengths is for exploring places with few other people, often abandoned places, but I can't think of many works which have zero NPCs and consist of a lot of exploration. Usually there's at least one NPC, or the..."

Oh, You BEAST: Games where you're an animal!
by Ghalev - 39 votes for 24 games, last vote on December 11, 2018; created on August 6, 2009

"I know of a small handful of games where you play a beast, and I want to know of more. (By beast I mean a cat, a dog, a chicken, an orangutan, that kind of thing ... not looking for mythical monsters and not looking for part-timers, so..."

Once More, With Feelies
by Ghalev - 33 votes for 22 games, last vote on November 17, 2017; created on May 22, 2009

One-room conversation games
by Sorrel - 31 votes for 9 games, last vote on May 21, 2017; created on September 2, 2009

"I'm looking for a one-room game where the main focus is the conversation with an NPC. The kind of game where the NPC feels so realistic that you actually begin to feel an emotional connection of sorts. Something to the effect of Galatea."

Outstanding individual puzzles
by Jeremy Freese - 47 votes for 23 games, last vote on December 8, 2018; created on June 6, 2009

"I'm interested in examples of excellent individual puzzles in IF. In other words: not 'Spider and Web' so much as 'getting out of the chair' in 'Spider and Web' "
