There are many.  Do you have a particular one that you enjoy?

King's Quest VI is the best ever, in my opinion.

Maniac Mansion

Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade

Anything by Lucasarts is great. I'm a big fan of The Dig and Full Throttle  and the Monkey Island series but they're all excellent. I would also recommend the Sierra series like Kings Quest and Space Quest and if you're feeling a little randy, Leisure Suit Larry :D

Yes very good, very atmospheric. It probably is. You liked it more than monkey island? Would love to see that game done today, I wish they would just at least give it a nod. Easily more immersive than most games done today, and i'm not quite sure why that is. Maybe the writing.

2 of my personal favorites are Discworld and Blazing Dragons.  They are both more comedy style adventures but they are both a lot of fun and funny.

Looking forward to that new King's Quest announced at PSX.  I'm really digging the Blackwell series at the moment.  I'm halfway through the 3rd title in the series of 5.

I have a soft spot for Loom. I actually played through the Turbografx-CD version many years ago and it was great. It may be a touch short, but challenging and totally beatable without a walkthrough.

I have not played many adventure games, but I do enjoy the Macventure series.  I have played Deja Vu, Deja Vu II, and Shadowgate and enjoyed all of them.  Still have not played Uninvited though.

I definitely loved the Space Quest series!  (...for those who may not know, there's now a collection of all 6 games on one DVD-ROM for the PC...)

I'd also like to recommend Brain Dead 13, which I played on the PS2.

Broken Sword is one of my favorites, and the original has been ported many times (and remade a few times as well).  Definitely worth a try if you haven't done so yet.

Day of the Tentacle is my top favorite. It's insanely funny. And if you use the computer in one of the rooms, you can play the original Maniac Mansion too. :)

Of the "serious" ones, I'd say King's Quest VI takes my top pick. It's got a great sense of mystery and adventure. You're very tense a lot of the time too, since almost anything can kill you.

You should definitely check out The Neverhood if you like claymation, personally it's my favourite point and click adventure game.
