favorite text adventures/interactive fiction

The Hobbit had a great parser for its time, and the Lord of the Rings was good in letting you stray from the path of the book to explore the world. (The only way you could feel that you were in Middle Earth, pre-Peter Jackson ) I also liked the Time and Magik trilogy: Lords of Time, Red Moon, and the Price of Magik. These were interesting games and, despite all having very different ''feels'' to them, actually worked well together as part of the greater story. And in more recent times, one game I played (and liked) on the PC was Jacaranda Jim, which was somewhat surreal.

Hitchhiker''s Guide to the Galaxy was a cool game. I''m proud to say I got out of the first room with no spoilers =p
Unfortunately I forgot to pick up mail or something and the house kept getting demolished so I gave up. I should try again sometime but all text adventures really annoy me. I''m not very patient =p

allgoodnames:

There is a large community playing and writing Interactive Fiction. For best results, go to

http://www.gnelson.demon.co.uk/inform.html

and use the Inform language. This way you can play your
text adventures on virtually everything with a CPU
and a display.

There should also be links to other IF community sites..

Where can I find these games?

I played them on my Amstrad CPC, back in the late 80s. If you really want them, try abandonware or emulator sites. But I can''t post addresses for you on here as most abandonware and emulators tread on dubious legal ground and thus should not be associated with GameDev
