Legend of Kyrandia, The box cover

Legend of Kyrandia, The screenshot
Arguably amongst the best adventure games series ever, the Kyrandia games tell stories set in the fantasy land of Kyrandia, told from three different perspectives: Brandon (a hero chosen to save the land), Zanthia (a Royal Mystic searching for the Anchor Stone to save Kyrandia from disappearing), and Malcolm (the evil jester from the first two games out to get his revenge). Each game is better than the last, despite the annoying random elements in some puzzles which can only be solved through tenacious trial-and-error. Great games nonetheless, with a gentle sense of humor, Westwood's acclaimed graphics and user-friendly interface, and great music.
