With so many adventure games this year, I think it's time Giant Bomb added a "Best Adventure Game" category to their GoTY awards.
A new Double Fine Adventure game, a Jane Jensen adventure game, and Broken Sword 5 coming next year?!
Also, out of the ones above, I've played Walking Dead, Botanicula, and Resonance and all three have been great.
Haven't tried any Daedalic games because of the fear of bad voice acting, but heard they're designed well.
From what I've played I prefer Botanicula (because I really like Amanita games), but I think that the best one is Walking Dead. Even if all the episodes didn't came out yet, just by its first episode (I still haven't played the second episode; I'll prefer to wait and play when all of them come out), I think this series has good quality writing, voice-acting and animations. It's also a different take on Adventure games.
On one hand, What is an adventure game any more. If you're suggesting they create a category for point and click games with puzzle mechanics then I agree.
Adventure games focus on puzzle solving within a narrative framework, generally with few or no action elements.
So far my favourite would be Stacking, if that counts as being this year :o Walking Dead is also pretty good so far...
