The Longest Journey is arguably the greatest PC adventure game ever freaking created. It's on Steam and Good Old Games. Also April Ryan might be the best female protagonist of all time. The story and the gorgeous art style still hold up. You should totally check it out. I'll wait.
The sequel Dreamfall was released, but fans were left with arguably the most infuriating cliffhanger ending in gaming history. I was almost convinced that Funcom would go under thanks to the ill-advised MMO The Secret World before I finally got the chance to finish the story. It's being developed by an independent studio from Funcom, which means the game might actually come out and not be doomed as vaporware.
This is seriously a treat and might even surpass The Walking Dead for critical acclaim and new feats of storytelling. I'm frankly stoked that we're going to return to Stark and Arcadia once again.
