"I am look for the hardest IF games ever."

Games where the PC is an antihero
by Sorrel - 40 votes for 20 games, last vote on April 4, 2018; created on December 23, 2009

"I'm looking for games where the PC is the villain/antihero of the story and the traditional plotlines of "good beats evil" aren't followed. "

Holiday games
by Sorrel - 7 votes for 3 games, last vote on August 13, 2016; created on December 16, 2009

"I'm looking for some IF games to get me into the holiday spirit. "

Games with an abrupt and unexpected ending twist
by dutchmule - 70 votes for 25 games, last vote on May 19, 2018; created on December 13, 2009

"I'm looking for games which, as in a lot of short stories, feature a sudden and unexpected revelation/twist at the very end of the game, that possibly changes your interpretation of what the game was really all about. (but please be..."

Useless, pointless Z machine games!
by NosesAreAlive - 1 vote, last vote on January 2, 2010; created on December 12, 2009

"The titles says it all!"

No map necessary
by Divide - 61 votes for 40 games, last vote on December 8, 2016; created on December 1, 2009

"Pieces which can be fully enjoyed without drawing map, ideally without taking any notes whatsoever. Ones which you could play on a bus, on a break, laying on bed, etc. with nothing but a portable player. Games for which you don't need..."

Games That Reward Sticking With Them
by Ghalev - 19 votes for 10 games, last vote on March 2, 2017; created on November 24, 2009

"Here's a dangerously subjective poll. I can be a bit impatient with text adventures on most days, sadly, and if a game doesn't grab me, shake me, French-kiss me and hump my leg in the first 2,000 words (those long intros count toward the..."

Sandbox games
by JonathanCR - 8 votes for 7 games, last vote on February 15, 2016; created on November 23, 2009

"There are two competing philosophies in game design (in games in general, not just text games). One is the story: tell a story in which the player is the protagonist. Games of this kind have strong plotting but they can often seem to..."

Games to Remember
by Newbot - 5 votes for 5 games, last vote on July 1, 2018; created on November 15, 2009

"These are games you put down in awe after completing them -- it would seem wrong to play them again immediately. Yet long afterwards, something brings them back to mind, and you want to play them once again."

Birds in IF
by Wendymoon - 68 votes for 43 games, last vote on June 24, 2019; created on November 8, 2009

"What games can you think of with birds in them? What's the bird? Is it important to the game?"

Great quotes
by aaronius - 11 votes for 7 games, last vote on October 28, 2014; created on November 5, 2009

"Post your favorite sentences/excerpts from games in the comment field. Especially lovely if they are from deeper in the game than the opening text, although all are welcome."

Games with Impossible-to-film moments
by aaronius - 17 votes for 13 games, last vote on December 8, 2018; created on November 5, 2009

"I'm looking for games that demonstrate the power of text-based games. Games with sentences that would make developers of 3D games weep, like "The army of ten million robots marched over the liquid landscape," or "She concealed her anger..."

Games with Chases
by Jeremy Freese - 20 votes for 13 games, last vote on May 1, 2017; created on October 25, 2009

"The chase scene, a staple of Scooby Doo and action movies, but how often has it been done in IF?"

Games with "logical" puzzles
by Victor Gijsbers - 49 votes for 23 games, last vote on June 8, 2018; created on October 6, 2009

"Some puzzles--like chess problems or sudokus--can be difficult even though you know all the rules. I'm looking for IF games with this kind of puzzle: you can get to know the rules by simple exploration, and then you still have to solve..."

Fate vs Free Will Games
by loocas - 20 votes for 15 games, last vote on June 12, 2018; created on October 2, 2009

"I imagine that the interactive nature of IF would allow themes of fate and free will to be used powerfully. Perhaps the PC is given a glimpse of his or her future and the player tries to avoid it. Are there games in which this is done?..."

Games with high replay value
by Wendymoon - 29 votes for 19 games, last vote on June 10, 2018; created on October 2, 2009

"What games do you find yourself returning to again and again? Maybe to get every last lousy point, to do some amusing things, to try for different endings or just for the enjoyment of replaying?"

ZCode games with non-standard status lines
by Dannii - 12 votes for 10 games, last vote on July 7, 2019; created on September 6, 2009

"I'm interested in finding ZCode (primarily those written in Inform, though Infocom games could be ok too) which have a non-standard status line. Whether it's with colours, maps, arrows, or more! With such a list I can investigate what..."

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."

A fine bit of homebrew
by JonathanCR - 6 votes for 4 games, last vote on October 1, 2009; created on August 9, 2009

"Most games here are written with Inform, TADS, or other custom IF-writing languages. Some, however, are written in more standard and less specialised languages, such as C++, Java, or even BASIC. These "homebrew parsers" usually lack 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..."
