I think it was Calssoon. I remember emailing or messaging Chrille - he told me it was just a small game he did  in a rush, 2 or 7 days, I think - I was awed! I thought, this guy is an amazing genius to make an adventure game in a week or less - but that also tempted me enormously to give AGS a try...

The Kings quest remakes. Cant remember If I played I or II first. I only found it because I couldn't play the originals anymore on my newer computer and was looking for a way to play them on Google. Then I found the remakes site in the search and they had a link to AGS on their site and here I am ;D

Hmm, from the amount of 5DAS references on this thread I'd say that Yahtzee deserves credit for publicising AGS to the masses.

Mine was either Larry Vales 2 (definitely the first I finished) or Rob Blanc 2. I've been a lurker for quite a while...

Heh, just remembering that I was around to see Yahtzee 'quit' making games. Twice. Before he actually made his best ones.

The first AGS game I played was 7 Days a Skeptic, I absolutely loved it and it rekindled my love for adventure games.

Kings Quest 4, when I was about 4 or 5. Then my parents loved it, and bough the whole KQ back catalogue and Space Quest and Police Quest! I was in heaven!

Kings Quest 4 isn't an AGS game. 

Here are some AGS games for you to try, and then you can edit your post accordingly! :)

Also, please don't quote posts directly above you; it's unnecessary.

Sorry, I misread the topic, I thought it was Adventure Game in general

... 5 Days a Stranger...

Hey, that's the first one I played too! :D I really loved it too. Then I played 7 Days a Skeptic, and then I found 1213 and really liked that one too, despite being a platformer. It was really clever I think.

Cirque de Zale, for me. It was on a magazine cover DVD. Then after that I played the King's Quest Remakes (also on a magazine cover DVD), and the Maniac Mansion one (which I Googled, because I was in need of some LucasArts to balance out my Sierra). And then I also played Enclosure.

Before that, I had played some free SCUMM VM games (Beneath A Steel Sky, Flight Of The Amazon Queen, various demos), and a copy of the original, EGA Police Quest I found on a stiffy disk lying around the house. Oh, and Lure Of The Temptress, which I never played much, due to it being rubbish.

Around this time a year ago I was referred to 5 Days A Stranger by a friend's review, and that's what really got me into playing AGS games. 5DAS branched out into the rest of Chzo Mythos, and then into the rest of Yahtzee's games, and then into Ben Jordan, and then, and then, and then.

I now have well over a hundred adventure games on my computer. Yay!
--

At the time I played it, Cirque De Zale really amazed me, or rather, its credits amazed me. I was astounded that one person could be so multitalented as to make pretty much the entire game by herself.

I was a bit annoyed by the length of the game, though, having been spoilt by epics like Beneath A Steel Sky and Flight Of The Amazon Queen.

Overall, though, I think Cirque De Zale has made me try to hone as many skills as I can. I program, I design, I write, I make sound effects, I pixel graphics (not terribly well, but I'm getting there), and should really start trying to make music.

Cirque De Zale also showed me that adventure games don't have to be 15 hours long in order to be enjoyable. =D

The first AGS game I played was 'The Trials of Odysseus Kent.' It's such a fun game. That and 'I Spy' and 'Vengeance of the Chicken.' I love RON games.
I finally beat Space Quest 6!!

I believe that five days a stranger took my innocence as well.  It was painful at first, but then it started to feel really really good.

My very first game was Alien Time Zone. When I found AGS website I decided to download some really short game to see what it looks like. So I selected "short games", scroll down a little looking for something really small in size and somehow its screenshot caught my eye :)
Next was 5 Days a Stranger, I think.
So, while the second game proved how cool these "homemade" games could be, first one made me believe I could do one too  ;D

The first one i played was Art of Theft, Since i am one of the biggest newbies here probably. Both in terms of AGS and adventure games in general.

Then i moved on the the other yahtzee offerings (my favourite probably being 1213.. which is weird)

The Shivah was the first AGS game I played, which was awesome.  The one that got me interested in AGS as a game making tool was Time Gentlemen Please!

I actually did! It has an interesting concept and cute alien animations ;)
I was dissapointed it was too short though.
