Recommend a few good text adventure games!

Lately I’ve had the urge to play text adventure games, but I’m not sure what to play. I’ve been googling, but I’m overwhelmed by the variety of games available and can’t seem to find a useful review site.

So… what should I play? —Recommend a few good text adventure games! (MetaFilter)

I missed this thread when it appeared… Thanks, Matt, for pointing it out to me.

Many of the games I’d recommend were on this list. I’d add 9:05, Christminster, and Jigsaw, too.
