I'm starting this thread just to give my personal thanks to The Adventure Company. Even though they really have the adventure part of the industry cornered, and they basically control it, they really have put out some great adventure games that show what true adventure games are like. Ever since Grim Fandango, I've wanted more and more adventures...so thank you for keeping the genre alive even when it shouldn't be dying!
Great games to get from them:
A Moment of Silence (this game is absolutely amazing...at least I thought so)
