Reasoning aside. I want to know people's favorite. I mean, saying "best" could mean, commercially best and if that's your answer, fine. But best could just be a personal favorite for whatever reason.

Thought about this and it’s a several game tie. I can’t pick just one just like I tell all five of my kids their my favorite.

A Mind Forever Voyaging. It has exactly what I'm looking for in science fiction, but then again, it's not what I expected from a text adventure when it comes to gameplay. It was a weird experience going through the game (a fuzzy mix of confusion and excitement,) and thus it sticks out from the rest.

I suspect it being my favourite is based on the memories it invokes rather than it actually being "the best" Infocom game. Although this is probably true for any game I played in the early 90s (which is when I discovered computer games.)

for me, was hollywood hijinx, but I have a penchant for "exploring the eccentric mansion" type of IF because, believe it or not, I actually live in a large, admittely eccentric mansion.

Rant: show
thank to the Divine, I learned IF programming back in the 8b era, because the usual IF language basic exercise "map your house" is not a basic exercise for me..

I think it's harder to pick 1 favorite infocom game than it is to eat just one Lay's Potato Chip. Favorites are Trinity, A Mind Forever Voyaging and Beyond Zork. But then you have the classics like Planetfall and Enchanter at 4 and 5. So many good games to choose from, aaarg! :D
