8# Prune - 2015

Review91Score

The Colonel's Bequest is a character-driven graphic adventure game by Sierra On-Line. The Colonel's Bequest is one of the few Sierra On-Line adventure games to focus more on the characters than puzzles. Regardless of the importance of these elements, it is possible to finish the game without solving any puzzles, discovering many important details about the characters, or even identifying the murderer. The game's unusual title can be accredited to Sierra's long-standing tradition of including "Quest" in the title of nearly every graphical adventure they published.

18# The Last Guardian - 2017

Review82Score

The game has been shown to involve a young boy who befriends a giant bird, dog and cat hybrid creature, Trico, and the two work together to evade guards that are after them both. The game requires the player, controlling the boy, to manipulate Trico like a real animal, such as luring it with food, as to use the creature as a means to climb and reach high platforms or other remote places. This sets the core of the game on puzzle-based action, as in between the various puzzles the player will encounter, enemies will be encountered, potentially impeding progress. It is the player's role to survive in such an occurrence, much like in Ico.
