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.

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)

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)

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