Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Mummy2002-??2013-02One of the worst adventure games I have ever played. Boring. Awful. Illogical.  
Sherlock Holmes: Secret of the Silver Earring2004-092012-08Ending whodunnit was unbearably contrived and boring.  
Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened2006-112013-03A really gripping adventure. Holmes and Cthulhu mythos. Some puzzles are illogical but the story and ambiance is spectacular. We played the 2008 remaster. Very dark.  
Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis (versus Arsene Lupin)2007-112013-05LOTS of fun. Played 2010 remaster, which doesn't have creepy Watson. Gay curator: Dum de dum. Queen Victoria kissed Arsene. Most puzzles fair; some bizarre. We screwed Watson after he thought poorly of us. Watson, she doesn't look like your usual client...unless you were the client!  
Sherlock Holmes Versus Jack the Ripper2009-052013-06The most whodunnit adventure I ever played: you really do solve the mystery yourself. Very historically accurate. Watson threw up a long time. Female soft flabby bits. Chassids. Lots of prostitutes. Flowers!  
The Testament of Sherlock Holmes2012-092013-06What shall we do HOLMES?!? As awesome as previous game, but prettier and better voice acting.  
Sherlock Holmes and the Persian Carpet2008-052018-06Hidden object game in disguise.

Grisly Manor2011-032012-05Not on Wikipedia or Mobygames. Extremely short (2 hours) but very enjoyable. Nice puzzles.  
The Sanctuary2012-052013-01Not on Wikipedia or Mobygames. Extremely short (3 hours) but very enjoyable. Nice puzzles. Guessed on release date.

Back to the Future 1:It's About Time2010-122012-06

Takes place after the events of the movie. Narrative is complex for a Tell Tale game. Great voice acting (I just checked and the reason why the voice acting is so great is because the main voice actors were Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd). Puzzles were really, and the hinting system is second to none - when the game detects that you're stuck, one of the NPCs will start giving you increasingly pointed hints disguised as conversation/commentary.

Back to the Future 5: OUTATIME2011-072012-06  
The Walking Dead: Season 12012-042012-09Ground breaking adventure game gameplay. Loved it: A+. Very sad ending. Clementine was crying, Lee was crying, I was crying, Evelyn was crying... we were all crying. Needed a hug afterwards.  
The Walking Dead: Season 22012-042015-05  
Dark Fall: Lost Souls2009-122012-07Good mood and atmosphere. Some illogical puzzles and pixel hunting.  
Deponia2012-082013-02They call him Rufus... Nice cartoon graphics. Rufus is very much an anti-hero. Enjoyable. Nice interface, doable puzzles.  
Chaos on Deponia2012-112013-05
