I have not played most of the games in the Infocom catalog. I’ve started Zork I a few times and made some progress. The only game I recall playing to completion is Wishbringer.
I just found this thread from a Google groups archive of
rec.games.int-fiction where Greg McElhatton lists:
Witness (ok, it wasn’t, but it should have been;
Infocom even admitted it.)
Stationfall (???) (Maybe Advanced)
Border Zone (???)
Nord and Bert
A Mind Forever Voyaging
I think that’s accurate.
As a relatively inexperienced player who jumped from playing a handful of games to an exploration of authoring, I want to increase my overall play count and experience with games considered canon. I wonder how experienced players who have finished most (if not all) of the catalog would introduce the games to a novice. Would you suggest a “play by order of difficulty” strategy?
