Rules: I do not necessarily need to play “to completion” although I will give every game a strong effort. I am allowed to use hints and walkthroughs as necessary, but only after significant personal attempt.

(*) Defining an “adventure game” is somewhat fuzzy. I am using lists from multiple websites and using my own judgment.

(**) I might start mixing in modern games, but I will be keeping alive a chronological sequence.
