Just re-played all the Dana Knightstone games - one after the other - then did a re-play of the wonderful (Frogwares) Hound of the Baskervilles (for the umpteen time) - and have now started a mammoth re-play of all the "Myths of the World" games grin

Great fun all round !! dance

Have fun you two! I am trying to replay some of my regular adventure games but don't know if I'll ever get around to replaying the casuals. Too many still not played the first time yet. The only ones I did replay were the first 3 Ravenhearst games so I could remember the story to replay the 4th and 5th. I just started the 5th one last night.

I started doing that about a month ago, but quit after playing the Red Riding Hood Sisters, which I didn't care for. I may go back to the Dark Parables series later. Right now I'm going through what's installed on my computer and am playing the Echoes of the Past and Dreampath games.

Oh, I keep acquiring more also Mad yes but there are so many casual games available that I just don't know about replaying them. I sometimes feel I shouldn't be replaying the adventure games either but I sort of feel I might some day be able to play all of those even while replaying some since there aren't as many released (that I'm interested in) as there are casuals.

After I discovered I could download Big Fish games directly to an external drive, I started downloading only the games I favoured to it.
[By playing one of a series and then downloading all the rest in that series.]

At the moment I still have several at Big Fish in my Purchase History that are un-played (therefore un-tested) but one day I WILL have a collection of "tested only" Casuals on my dedicated external drive that I KNOW I will enjoy re-playing grin

[Plus, as I have a head like a sieve, leaving a sufficient interval between re-plays is enough to make me forget most of a game so a re-play can be like starting a new game for me lol]

I already have lots of Adventures and RPGs that I already re-play - but it's more difficult to "test" un-played ones because the games are so much longer - and I have to find the time to do it !!

However, nearly all my Adventures and RPGs are on disks (either retail or burned myself from sites like GOG) so at least they are safe and are just sitting and waiting happydance

This must be quite a dry spell. Pressing a Windows 7 laptop into service again, I've played Grim Tales: The Bride for the first time and am replaying Mystery Trackers: The Void and MCF: Dire Grove, Sacred Grove. Otherworlds may be next.

I must be an oddball, in that I begin to play a game as soon as I download it. I don't tend to "Buy for later."

As for Replay, yeah, I have to wait about a year to replay a game, so I can forget its details, but do enjoy replaying a good game. This is one reason I maintain a database of casuals I've played, noting which ones stink or were only "so-so" or were so engaging that I would want to replay them. Sometimes, it is because they are more like an Adventure than an HO game, and sometimes it is because they run longer than usual or have better (peskier) mini-games.

I have replayed Brink of Consciousness, Dana Nightstone, Dark Parables: The Little Mermaid, Depths of Betrayal, Enigma Agency: Case of Shadows, Eternal Journey: New Atlantis (I recommend this one highly!), F.A.C.E.S., Forbidden Secrets: Alien Town (another one I recommend without reservation), House of 1000 Doors (all of them), Lost Lands: Dark Overlord, Nearwood, Nevertales: Beauty Within, Reflections: Equilibrium, Shiver: Vanishing Hitchhiker, and Timeless: The Lost Castle. I do have maybe a dozen others tagged for Replay.

EDIT: Forgot about Amaranthine: Winter Neverending.

Many thanks. I don't recall ever trying F.A.C.E.S. so I think I'll do so today.

Edited to add: I downloaded the trial and discovered I already own the game. I like Vogat so I'm going to replay in spite of stereotypical medical grunge.
