The only ones I've played are the Chzo Mythos and Art Of Theft. Chzo Mythos was good and sort of a homage to Lovecraft, and Art Of Theft was very, very good for a freeware game. Yahtzee's writing is generally good, even if his earlier stuff (5 Days, 7 Days) has so much explaining things that have already been explained, and even in his later stuff he's still really talkative.

If you're going to try them out, you play the Chzo Mythos in this order:

5 Days A Stranger
7 Days A Skeptic
Trilby's Notes
6 Days A Sacrifice

From all the games I played, best to worst, here's how I'd rate them-

Art of Theft
Trilby's Notes
6 Days A Sacrifice
5 Days A Stranger
7 Days A Skeptic

If you're too lazy to play all of those, here's a Let's Play of the Chzo Mythos: http://lparchive.org/LetsPlay/Chzo/index.html

I liked most of them better than the author did, except for 7 Days A Skeptic. That one sucked. I'd still suggest playing it just to get everything, though.

Now go play Art Of Theft.

EDIT: I think the downloads on that site became invalid, here's another place to get them: http://www.freegamesblog.org/trilby-the-art-of-theft/

I've played Art Of Theft, but it wasn't really much, I've promised myself to play the adventure games but didn't do it yet, and if you tell me that they're worse than AoT...well guess they can wait.

AoT feels too much like a puzzle game, and when the story picked up I started to lose interest. It had it's moment thou, the early stages where the best, and having your hideout was cool, but quite useless.

I really liked it, maybe because it was free >.>

The adventure games had an interesting story, but some of the puzzles were unnecessary and convoluted. If you like adventure games (I'm iffy on them), Trilby's Notes was the best game Yahtzee made. I really loved the last puzzle in that game. Probably one of the best puzzles I've seen in an adventure game, and it was very creative.
