Best Flash Adventure games

“Modern adventure games?” you question with a look of incredulity on your face. “Since when is there such thing as an adventure game anymore? I thought they died over a decade ago!?” Adventure games may not sit on the pedestal they once did but there has been something of a resurrection, maybe even a renaissance, in modern adventure, and the genre has seen many new directions and experimental formats. The AGS engine has allowed many novices to try their own hand at making the classic retro-styled point-and-click adventure. Indie developers have tried all sorts of out-of-the-box ideas for the genre. Online Flash portals have brought a measure of attention to the point-and-click Flash adventure. And even big console developers have occasionally made some adventure games by integrating “action-oriented” forms of gameplay to make it more appealing to action fans. In this list we will focus on modern adventure games which are mostly commercial and/or indie. These are the adventure games that will go down in history as the best in the genre.

The Walking Dead

The fact that so many gamers- not just aventure fans!- are saying The Walking Dead is their best game of the year so far for 2012 is really a big deal. Even if you don’t like the TV show you’ll STILL love The Walking Dead as a game. It’s that good. Once you start playing the game, many of the characters will actually start mattering to you. The storyline is complex and full of plot-twists. There is real character development. The dialogue is excellent. And there are some great scares waiting for you. Telltale Games have been making adventure games for a while now, but they’ve finally created their legacy!

I'm going to SF this weekend

Good thing I happened to see this. If I see someone dressed up like a zombie now, I won't completely panic!
Part zombie smackdown, part disaster prep, and part puzzle solving, Zombie Survival is only the latest event from Go Game, a SF-based company behind some of the city’s biggest flash mobs and team adventure games. “This game has been a personal pipe dream for a long long time,” says organizer Jenny Gottstein. “The idea is to empower communities to take control of their safety…through play!”
Like all of Go Game’s adventures, Zombie Survival Challenge is a team event

Indigo Prophecy, continued

Now this is where it becomes even more interesting.. after you leave, you switch characters and play as the detectives a short time later. This might cause you to ask.. why would i want to catch myself? Well.. keep in mind, the goal isn't really to get away from the detectives, or conversely, to catch the main character.. it's to uncover the underlying plot... using information gather by both sources. But, if the detectives find the main character before figuring it out, they'll pin it on him using the evidence gathered, and the game will be over.
There were a few other aspects of the game that really caught my eye as well
