43. I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream (Computer)


I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream is a twisted vision. Humanity, in their depravity, created a supercomputer named AM in which to wage war. The machine became conscious, and destroyed all humans on Earth. All except five. AM, a hateful and evil being, tortures these five people for 109 years. Finally, these four men and one woman have the chance to redeem themselves and their species by proving that humans can change. I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream plays like a standard adventure game, with lots of pointing and clicking, but the story supplied by Harlan Ellison is truly rare brilliance.
