Gold Rush! box cover

Gold Rush! screenshot
One of Sierra's best but least-known games, Gold Rush! is exceptional not only for its real-world puzzles and intriguing plot, but also because it's one of the first adventure games that are truly replayable: as a brash young New Yorker setting out to find your lost brother, choose your path to fame and fortune in California from 3 very different branches, each with its own obstacles and dangers. Without a doubt, this is one of my favorite adventure games of all time. Two thumbs up!
