  1. Hey guys! I'm looking for an old point and click PC game i used to play when i was 9 years old, so around 2007-2009 maybe even 2010. It was about a man and he was looking for his wife. The genres are Puzzle, point and click, adventure, mystery and hidden object. The graphics were really nice and realistic not cartoony. One of the things i remember about it is at the start you're locked in a room and you have to find items to help you get out, i'm pretty sure you like start a fire or something and that helps you get out, sorry its been about 10 years so my memory is bad lol. I've been searching the internet for days and went through hundreds probably even thousands of games and i still have no luck. Sadly i don't remember any character names or publisher names. Let me know if you know a game like the one i described! Thanks and sorry for long comment. 🙂

  2. i have been looking for this game in which we are a bartender…
    that's pretty much all i know…
    although, i might add that in the game we have to collect clues by talking to our customers… get them drunk or something

  3. Nancy Drew should be number 1. Blackmoor Manor and Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake were some of the best games I’ve ever played in my life

  4. Who suggest me fireboy and watergirl on hudgames??? Now I can’t get rid of it because it's so lit!!! I've spent hours on it and my mom started yelling at me!!!

  5. People saying that DanganRonpa/Phoenix Wright don’t count because the main characters aren’t real detectives, and yet Shenmue and Professor Layton both made the list.

  6. I'm searching for a point and click investigative/detective game (mid-late 90s).
    The story was taking place in a big metropolitan city during the 80s. It was night. Jazz music in the background game.
    I remember a scene in a building, where you have to go upstairs in an elevator.
    The elevator didn't work so you had to take out it's fuse, bridge the fuse with a bubblegum paper, and put the fuse back in.
    Anybody knows that game?
