2. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, GameCube (Wii).

"What have they done?" cried Nintendo fans when the first screenshots of the first GameCube Zelda adventure were released. The cel-shaded visuals were far from the more mature look many hardcore fans wanted, but over time The Wind Waker has proven to be one of the best games in the series, and much better than the more mature Twilight Princess. GameCube games work on the Wii, so all you need is a GameCube controller or a Wii Classic Controller and you're off.

1. Shadow of the Colossus, PS2

Perhaps a controversial choice for No.1, but for our money there's no better adventure game available. Although not an adventure in the same vein as a Zelda, Shadow of the Colossus' sense of exploration and scale is unmatched. Travelling on horseback from colossus to colossus is a stunning experience in itself, but the fights against what must be the biggest enemies ever to grace a video game are often beyond belief. Shadow of the Colossus is our pick of the currently available adventure games and it's simply one of the finest games ever made.

Whoever made this list obviously has no idea what an adventure game is.

You're kidding me. A lot of the games on here aren't even adventure games.

No Grim Fandango? No Monkey Island games? No Blade Runner?

What is WRONG with you guys?
