Long time since I did it so have just started the first Black Mirror (the old and original) and am thoroughly enjoying, all over again, the stilted conversations and the erratic way Samuel walks from place to place wink

They just don't make 'em like that any more lol

What are you playing?

I really enjoyed the first Black Mirror. I wish I could erase my memory to play it like the first time!

I loved the stilted conversations and the way that Samuel walked! grin I replayed the game this past year, and enjoyed it even more than I did the first time around. In fact, I'd be ready to play it again this month. happydance

A couple of months ago Ross Scott (of Ross's Game Dungeon) posted a video review of the first Black Mirror.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvkcRSLfGHU

It was fun to see what he thought of it.
Probably best if you've played the game before.

The original Black Mirror is a fantastic game, pretty high up there on my favorites list. I still consider it the best of the series. The voice acting isn't great, it's true, but that's part of the game's personality, just like Nigel's odd way of speaking is part of The Lost Crown's. lol I'm also coming up on a replay of Black Mirror in a few games and am looking forward to it. Glad you're enjoying it all over again, Mad. thumbsup

Jenny, thanks for the link. I added it to my watch later list. smile

Arrgh - So I thought I would also replay Black Mirror - Put the CD in and installed it, but that dumb Star Trac (is that the right name?) security system won't allow it to proceed. I paid for that game; dammit I should be able to play it.

It is Starforce, Tally Ho. Either google for a Black Mirror NO CD fix or buy the game as a digital download from Steam or GOG. That will circumvent your problem. I have used the first method for my Black Mirror CD in the past, and it works. I have since purchased the game from GOG so that I don't have to mess with the copy protection problem.

Yes, Mad, I am very tempted to start the game again. grin

I've played the original Black Mirror at least three times, and recently replayed the "trilogy". The original is by far the best imo. The voiceacting, especially the choice of voice actor for Samuel, is not its strongest point, but I consider this game to be a minor classic in the genre. Don't care much for the other two games in the trilogy, but at least they are better than the "reworked" Black Mirror game from last year...

More on the StarForce story -

I went to the StarForce website, and found a utility that will diagnose problems.

Here's the message I got.
"Unfortunately, this application uses very old protection version 3.03.027.035 and will not run under Windows 10 x64.
You should contact your product customer support service and ask them to make a patch, which will either update protection system version or remove protection at all.
Unfortunately, StarForce company can't build such a patch since we neither have legal authority to produce any patches nor original application files required for that.

Please, accept our apologies for the inconveniences."

So again, although I paid good money for a game when it came out, if I want to replay if, I must buy it again. That really goes against the grain.

________________

BTW, there is a Netflix show called Black Mirror.
CAUTION! If you are at all queasy, or sensitive to language or violence or all-out sex, don't watch it. It's really bizarre. It has been compared to Twilight Zone, but no. Not. Nothing like Twilight Zone. The only similarity is that each episode is a stand-alone story.

__________

Anyway, enough blathering. I probably won't be re-playing Black Mirror. Those of you who do, enjoy. It's a really good adventure. wave2

Tally Ho, if memory serves, I have seen Black Mirror selling on GOG for less than $4 during a sale, and it will almost assuredly happen again. Not too bad a price to pay, even if you already have the CD.

I'm replaying the game now too.

Speaking of right-clicking, I just discovered something that I don't remember from previous plays. On the Save Game screen there are 24 save game slots, but you can only see 8 of them at any one time. If you click the up or down arrows it will scroll up or down one slot at a time, but if you right-click the arrows, it will scroll up or down a whole page (8 slots) at a time. Every time you open the Save Game screen, it always starts at the first 8 slots, so if you're using save games near the bottom of the 24 slots, this cane save a lot of clicks.

I don't know why I didn't re-read the game booklet. Then I would have known about the right clicking.

Uncle Reg - only 24 save slots??? I've already used 6 I think and I'm still at the beginning of the game.

I forgot to mention that this right-click feature also works on the Load Game screen.

Originally Posted By: oldbroad

I went back and read the manual (which is supplied as a PDF file in the GOG version), and while it amply covers the use of right-clicking during gameplay and in the inventory, there was no mention of using it in the Save Game and Load Game screens.

The game is divided into chapters (I think I remember that there were 6 chapters in all), so that once you advance to a new chapter, you can safely overwrite the saves for the previous chapter(s). That would effectively give you 24 saves for each chapter. I'm on Chapter 4 now, and the 24 slots have been adequate for me.

I'm no stranger to overwriting saves. I just didn't realize there were only 24 though.

I'm playing the GOG version but looked at the manual that came with my old disc. I never think to look for manuals with the downloads for some reason.

I'm off work tomorrow so, hopefully, progress will be made!

I just discovered another place where right-click works. It's on the scroll arrows at the left or right of the inventory bar. If you right-click the left arrow it will move the inventory items so that the first inventory item is on the left side of the bar, and right-clicking the right arrow will move the items so that the last item is on the right side of the bar.

I'm replaying this game now as well. Thorsgoats and I love to quote these lines - "I think I will go now." "I'll return to my work." Samuel and Bates say these lines so many times, they seem to take up half of the game. lol

Really fantastic game, of course. I haven't gotten to the slider puzzle yet, but as I know the trick to solving it, I've never needed a saved game for it. devil I do, however, keep saved games for two of the very long waits after a couple of characters tell Samuel to come back later. I remember the second one taking about 40-45 minutes, with nothing to do in the meantime but run around to all the areas several times and re-read some of the family history just to pass the time. crazy

I've just gotten to the part where (very mild spoilers for the entire trilogy)
Click to reveal..
Samuel visits Murray in the pawn shop. Murray is a very different character here than he is in Black Mirrors 2 and 3.
grin

The original is still definitely my favorite, though I loved the sequels as well. I'm still avoiding the newest game, as I'm hoping a patch to fix the controls will be released at some point. If not, I'll power through it one of these days. smile

Hi fellow Boomers,
i'm also re-playing BM1, but this time it's the GOG version, even though I still have my old Boxed version. Purchasing the game from GOG cost me $9.99.I had missed the $4.99 sale, but no big deal. Got past the "Torn Photo"
puzzle by using the savegame. I understand that some other puzzles are more difficult than the torn photo. Haven't gotten to these yet, and I'm hoping there will be more savegames available for the game. Crossing my fingers! lol

Having completed and very much enjoyed BM1, I've now started BM2 smile

A much slower moving beginning to this one and the setting is nowhere near as atmospheric but I expect it will fire up soon yes

Got to !! It IS a Blck Mirror after all !! lol

Mad, I think the original game was the most atmospheric by far, which is a big part of why it's my favorite of the trilogy. The sequels are still pretty fantastic as well, however. smile

Mostly I am Mad - except when I had to wander around doing nothing but enjoy the rain while I waited for a key to be made and then for my photos to be developed. Not as long for the photos thankfully since that was almost immediately after the key. smile

I know game 2 started out more slowly and some people didn't like it, but I seem to remember that I did.

However, that "waiting for time to pass" in the first I originally found confusing. Thought I'd missed some vital clue or something (for ages) that would move me on !! shocked

Got to love those older ideas, eh ?? lol

There are two especially bad waits in the original - one with Richard and one later with the priest. That second one took about 40-45 minutes for me. crazy Now, I keep saved games for both of those waits, so I don't have to worry about them again. grin

I suppose they thought the waits would add "realism," but I think there are much better ways to accomplish this. Plus, I think this is one of those instances where the player would want things to be less realistic. lol

Hi Boomers.
I just found a copy of BM2 on my games shelf. Installed it and it's running perfectly on my WIN 10 PC (no serial number needed).
will start it after I finish BM1, and I WILL refer to Louis Koot's amazing walkthrough. HAPPY GAMING!

Oh, it's a definite "doozie" of a slider alright eek

After a zillion tries the first time I played the game, I finally solved it.

And, needless to say, kept that save safe for evermore lol

Well, I looked at MaG's walkthrough to see if I could get some guidance and saw that I had the signs in the wrong places. They were in the right order (thanks to Google) but instead of going around the border I had them going across the rows. So, while trying to rectify that, I got it solved. Yay!!

I'm getting close to the end of The Black Mirror 2 now.

Haven't been as enthralled as I was with The Black Mirror (original).

But fully intend to have a re-play of The Black Mirror 3 next yes smile

EDIT :

Started No 3 now !!!! bravo

As I remember, Black Mirror 3 felt more similar in atmosphere to Black Mirror 1 than part 2 did. Still nowhere near the same level, of course, but I liked it more than the second game. I did wish the villain in part 2 would have made an appearance in the third game, however, as this person was one of the more interesting characters in the series. smile

I was able to spend more time per session doing my replay of BM2 than I could with BM1 and I eventually found there were some parts I remembered more, too yes

But I doubt it will be the same with BM3 as I don't remember as much of that at all.
Apart from, as venus, says, having a vague feeling it was a better game than BM2 !!
So I expect it will definitely take me longer grin

I found progress to be slow most of the way through BM2, Marian. But I did enjoy the game. Just not as much as I did BM1.
However, BM3 is cranking up to be much more to my liking grin

I nearly opted for a "rest" between games too, oldbroad, but that old Lure of Adventure sucked me in !! laugh

I liked the first one best -- the only one made by Future Games.

Of the 2nd two Black Mirror games (both made by Cranberry Productions), I liked the 3rd one a lot better. The 2nd one seemed to take half the game to get started. Despite that Lovecraft-type stories often take place in New England, I thought the depiction of New England in Black Mirror 2 was very bland and ordinary, and half the game is over before you get out of New England and get to the Black Mirror Castle environment. Even then, the atmosphere wasn't as good as in the first Black Mirror, and I think that is mainly due to the better background sound and music in the first Black Mirror.

As far as games go, the 2nd two games were more stable, and didn't have situations like getting eaten by the wolf because you'd used too many bullets earlier.

Oh, I do still like the first one myself Jenny100. It is an excellent example of how a good Adventure game could play out at that time yes

I found The story in Black Mirror 2 to be soooo slow to develop and, as you say, the game was nowhere near as atmospheric early on as it could have been whistle

But the more "modern" build up and execution of the story - as done in The Black Mirror 3 - is very much to my taste grin

I think the three together, though, do still make a darn good trilogy thumbsup

I appreciate that Cranberry made Black Mirror 2 and 3 as real adventure games. I just liked the first one better, and a lot of that was because of the sound design. I can appreciate that some people might like Black Mirror 2 or 3 better. I don't remember being eaten by a wolf in Black Mirror 2 or 3.

Cranberry also made Gray Matter, Mata Hari, and Lost Chronicles of Zerzura. I don't remember many people commenting on Lost Chronicles of Zerzura when it came out. I thought it was sort of like one of the Kheops games (like Secrets of Da Vinci or Nostradamus) only in 3rd person.

I wasn't that keen on either Gray Matter, Mata Hari, OR Lost Chronicles of Zerzura myself when they were released - although I think I might still have two of them.

So who knows ?? I might replay those two some day laugh

Interesting. I loved Gray Matter and consider it one of the better games I've played. I thought it was developed by Wizarbox, however. duh

Lost Chronicles of Zerzura was fun, but not nearly as good as the Black Mirror games. Mata Hari was frustrating for me. It had way too many mini games, and while the in between parts were okay, they weren't interesting enough to endure the numerous, annoying mini games a second time.

Actually I think you're right.
I was reading from a list at Mobygames
http://www.mobygames.com/company/deck-13-hamburg-gmbh

The other adventure games in that list do say Cranberry on the individual game pages, but Gray Matter does not, so I'm not sure why it's listed there.

I had a similar problem with the "magic" puzzles in Gray Matter. They were pretty much the same puzzle over and over, and I didn't like it the first time. The story was good though.

Although I wasn't too enamoured of the three games, I didn't totally dislike them.
But I did think Gray Matter was rather repetitious rolleyes

Thanks for the link, Jenny. That's strange that it would be listed with the Cranberry games on Moby Games.

The story in Gray Matter is what hooked me, it's true, although I thought the standard inventory puzzles were fine. I enjoyed the Daedalus side story and the puzzles that went along with it quite a bit. I do agree with you regarding the magic puzzles. I thought the idea was intriguing, but the execution could have been much better. The magic tricks were just basically following instructions from a list, which wasn't very exciting or much fun.

However, I'd take the tedious magic trick repetition over the frustration of the Mata Hari dancing quick time events and stealth train mini games any day. lol

O.K. A change in the verdict on the order of BM's coming up, I suspect wink

I am well on the way to finishing BM3 now and if the final chapter is as enticing as those that have gone before, this third game will definitely take over 1st place in the trilogy - for me
I have SO thoroughly enjoyed this final "episode" smile

I'm considering Woodruff and the Schnibble for my next replay. Unless I get totally tempted by Lighthouse The Dark Being, of course, which is a lurking possibility !! hamster

Truthfully, I want to wait longer because it's getting to be too much at one time which ends up taking enjoyment away from it, but still, I don't really want to wait too long. I am anxious to get through with Black Mirror and move on to some other replays and new plays.

I started a casual game that doesn't appear to be too long so will probably start game 3 later today. I'm glad you enjoyed it Mad. the only thing I remember about it at the moment, is the shades, which I did not like.

Hi.

Sorry !! I used the wrong "tense" in my last post, oldbroad.
I should have said "I certainly DO like it" as I'm still playing it - and am just about to start the final chapter whistle

[I'm being delayed though because at the moment I'm producing "year end" accounts for a charity school where I act as Voluntary Treasurer and I'll have to forego a fair amount of gaming time until they are finished shocked ]

A big advantage to BM3 over BM2 (for me) is that the story progresses much faster and I find that a lot more satisfactory thumbsup

Good Luck for when you get to BM3, anyway grin

I have little doubt I, too, will need help, oldbroad. So MaG's walkthrough might be getting a good thumbing through - metaphorically speaking laugh

Phew !!
Utilising bits of MaG's walkthrough, as and when I became desperate, I have spent hours today making my way through the shades and have finally got as far as being outside the door of the exit room - only to find myself BADLY STUCK at this eleventh hour !! rolleyes

[ Can't get the light to be turned on in the final room so I can enter it cry]

Absolutely NOT able to try any more today - but hopefully, in my next break from accounts, I might solve the problem whistle

I couldn't make sense of ANY walk through, oldbroad. Not even MaG's blush

So in the end I just had to keep experimenting (dying more times than I'm willing to acknowledge !!) until ONE of my experiments actually succeeded lol

Despite the horrible "shades" area I'm still expecting I will change my order of preference of "The Black Mirror" games to 3 first, 1 second and 2 third - because that order definitely reflects the enjoyment pecking order - for me yes

Well, the first is still my favorite for sure, but glad you enjoyed the third game so much this time, Mad. They're all great games. smile Congratulations on getting past the shades portion after it gave you such trouble. thumbsup

I'm replaying Moebius now and am really enjoying it. I really don't understand the harsh criticisms, as I think this is a terrific game. I'm enjoying even more this time around. Sure, Malachi moves oddly, but that's a very minor issue for me. lol It's a shame there probably won't be a sequel.

Finished The Black Mirror 3 !! thumbsup

[And it wasn't as difficult an ending to fathom as I'd expected - which was a bonus.]
I thoroughly enjoyed this game and will certainly re-play it yet again at some time yay

I'm thinking I might attempt my Win7 version of Amber Journey's Beyond next as I didn't do very well with it when I first played the original version years ago blush

Hope you enjoy Moebius when you get to it as well, Mad. I played some more today, and I'm still enjoying it very much. I think it's moving up on my "list of favorites." woot

Glad you enjoyed Black Mirror 3 all the way through. Did you keep a saved game after the shades section for your next replay? grin Enjoy Amber Journey's Beyond if you play it. smile

Congrats on finishing the game Mad and glad you had fun. I can't wait to finish as I am getting rather sick and tired of wandering around not knowing what to do. Keep falling asleep at my computer. I should not have played all 3 games in a row.

Let us know what you decide to play next.

Is this in BM3 that you are falling asleep at your computer, oldbroad ??

I could understand that might have happened in BM2 but rather surprised to hear it's happening for you if it's in BM3 shocked

Not what you want at ALL sad

[ And yes, I'll come back and tell you what I decide to re-play next wink ]

Great that you'll always have that saved game, Mad. thumbsup Whenever I make it through a difficult action sequence, I always keep at least 3 saved games. lol I kept some after the spider sequence in Still Life and sneaking past the man and dog in Sherlock Holmes and the Secret of the Silver Earring. grin I definitely kept some after all three annoying arcade sequences in Next Life! It was a very fun game otherwise, but those sequences were terrible. crazy lol

Enjoy your next replay, whatever you choose!

Yes Mad, in BM3. Wandering around for a long period of time not knowing what to do gets boring, but also it has to do with the music and background sounds lulling me to sleep.

I've opted to play The Birdwatcher and re-play Amber Journeys Beyond.

[The latter tweaked for modern machines.]

So I should definitely be enjoying myself for quite some time dance

Mad, I finally finished the game. I had to use the walkthrough a few times near the end. I tried for 3 hours to get the shade/labyrinth puzzle myself but then spent 1 hour on it using the walkthrough. I needed it for the hieroglyphics/canister puzzle also. I enlarged the photo of the skeleton but then ended up skipping the puzzle as I just could not get it. I very strongly dislike skipping puzzles! The story got too confusing for me at the end with shades and souls and soul shades etc. I did not understand it any better this time than I did the first time I played it.

That said, I really did enjoy replaying the games though even though that doesn't sound like I did. yes

I think I will try to find something lighter to play now, like Machinarium maybe.

Congratulations on making it through the series, oldbroad. thumbsup

Mad, how are your two games going?

Right now, I'm replaying The Moment of Silence, which is such a fantastic game. praise A lot of the themes in it seem more relevant now than they did when it came out in 2004, which makes me appreciate it even more than I did in my original play-through. It is strange to see so many CDs laying around when the game is supposed to take place in 2044, though. lol

So glad to hear you did enjoy re-playing the series, despite everything !! thumbsup

venus ..

I'm thoroughly enjoying myself - yet again smile

Really like The Birdwatcher. But then I have liked ALL Mikael's games yes

Unfortunately, I've not got very far with Amber Journeys Beyond yet, though, due to lack of playing time at the moment. But it IS nice visiting that house again eek

I finished The Birdwatcher last night (loved it) and then decided to install Black Dahlia .... All seven disks of it, plus a patch from a floppy disk shocked

So between that and Amber Journeys Beyond, I reckon I'll be keeping myself entertained for a few MONTHS now, considering how much time I can allow per playing session lol

I started replaying The Wolf Among us today. Fantastic Telltale game, highly recommended for those who don't mind occasional QTE's. As long as you can type and have decent reflexes, they aren't too difficult. I don't like/tend to be bad at action sequences, and I'm okay with Telltale's controls. smile It's definitely a story focused, choice based game, so those who are primarily puzzle gamers will most likely not enjoy it.

However, if you like a good story and want to catch up before the sequel that will probably begin late this year, I recommend giving this one a go. smile

Hi fellow Boomers,
I just bought BM3 from Steam, on sale for $2.49. Installed and looking fantastic. As I said earlier in this thread, I'm waiting for a sale on this game, so I finally have it now. YAY!

I've never played it using anything other than Win95 or Win98, oldbroad, and Win98 is what I have it running on at the moment. And (with the patch installed) it is working perfectly.

[I'm extremely doubtful of it working on any later O.S. though - and Jenny100 would probably be the one best to explain "why".]

I keep hoping GOG might have a go at it for us. That would be SO good yes

There are some VERY difficult parts in this game eek

I am currently replaying the first FMV Tex Murphy game Under A Killing Moon. I first played it way back in 1994 on my first computer. As there were no walkthroughs in those days, in fact I wasn't on the Internet at that time, it was the first game I managed to get all the way through owing to the neat hints system incorporated into the game.

Anyway, as it has been some years since I last played UAKM, it's a wonderful walk down memory lane as it is still a good yarn and enjoyable to play despite the pixelated graphics.

I still have the original game on CDs, but am playing the GOG version on my Windows 7 computer.

I've just got to my least favourite part of the game - the GRS offices with the security robot. Took me forever to get through it the first time way back when, but I eventually emerged shaken but triumphant.

As it was the first Tex game I ever played it is close to my heart, but I love Pandora Directive the most.

That's my least favourite part too, Winx eek

But the rest of the game is SO good that I always persevere - despite ending up a drained wreck woozy

I have played Edna and Harvey the Breakout twice in the past week. My grandkids came over and started playing it too and had so much fun with it. Right now I am re-playing discworld noir. I love that game. A good game to play while I am waiting for my prime rib roast to cook. Happy Easter!

Hi Mad,

I have read that you did not possess
Edna and Harvey, would you like to have
mine? I never played the game, cause

Hi Mad, wave2

I have yust sent the package.
It is nice of you that you offer to
pay for the postage.

Normally I would be inclined to refuse, yes
but as my finances have seen better days, smirk
I would appreciate it if you could pay half.

That would amount to 6 euro's.

I will send you a PM with my paypal.
Hope the game arrives savely and you will
like it!

Have a nice gaming day, Robert wave

P:S: Thanks, oldbroad for the friendly words! blush

Hello Mad,

That was incredibly quick! yes
Am glad the game arrived savely.

I have bought "Layers of Fear" again
on GOG,(it was on sale) cause my
Steam one didn't install anymore.
I never finished this one
cause of the "Layers" of Doors that were
a game spoiler! slapforehead

Since yesterday I have made good progress
(many a door hás been openend ... joy2)

P.S: I am a clumsy package wrapper,
and tape often ends up on my fingers,
instead of on the package. ... laugh

Have a good day,Rob wave2

I'm thinking replays of Scratches and The Arrangement coming up next. Scratches will actually be The Director's Cut which I did not play before but I still consider this a replay.

Hopefully, they will both work with no problems.

Have fun with King's Quest, Mad! woot Do you play the originals or the remakes when you replay? Even though the fan remakes are great, I always have to play the originals when playing through the full series, as I consider those the versions that "actually happened." grin King's Quest VI is still the best, I think. thumbsup

I’ve never played The Arrangement, oldbroad, but I've played both the original Scratches and the Director’s Cut.
I hope you enjoy whichever games you decide to go with grin

I vary my plays of King’s Quest games, venus.
Sometimes I use the original disks in Win98SE and sometimes I use the GOG tweaked versions in WinXP or Win7.
[ Without physically checking, however, I’m not sure what fan versions I actually have !! smile ]

Mad, it sounds as though you play the original versions then, regardless of whether you use your disks or the GOG copies. thumbsup This is the "correct" way to play the series, I think. grin

There are also these installers that allow you to run your original games on more modern computers - http://www.sierrahelp.com/Patches-Updates/NewSierraInstallers.html#KQ. I use these for my Roberta Williams Collection, and they allow the games to run perfectly for me on both Windows 7 and Windows 10. Just another option in case you ever want to use it. smile

My last two games played are "Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders" and "Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Father 20th Anniversary Edition". Liked both games offering more traditional gameplay. The first one had gamepad support but the latter not, so lots of mouse clicking lately.

AC was more like a casual game and little too much guided tour like, you simply could not go wrong. I prefer Sherlock Holmes games over it.

Never played original GK, started gaming as late as 2006. The remake offered decent graphics and somewhat challenge gamewise. Had to take a peek at walkthrough three times. For the mimic and policeman, coded message on the wall at the graveyard and drumming message near the end. The last one was actually too easy to even try, he he. Expected something more complicated.

I guess it's now time for an action oriented game, thinking of Resident Evil IV...

I'm down to the very last remnants of a re-play of Black Dahlia and am about to start a re-play of one of the King's Quests games.

And last year, I re-played both the games you mention, TJL !!

I really ought to be starting one of the many "never yet played" in my collection but I keep getting side tracked by lovely oldies laugh

So have you decided which game in the King's Quest series you will replay first, Mad?

This puts me in the mood for replaying some of them myself. yes

I'm playing The Pillars of the Earth, by Daedalic. It's an excellent narrative game with a strong story line and characters. thumbsup It certainly isn't a challenging game by any means, but the story is fantastic, and I've apparently made choices that deviate from the events of the novel. grin In fact, I've become so invested in the story and characters, that it may end up topping Memoria as my favorite Daedalic game. I'm still working on Book 3, and I plan on playing some more over the weekend. thumbsup

TJL, do you think you will play the Gabriel Knight sequels, now that you've played the original? grin They are both fantastic as well, and I think the second game is the best in the series. Gabriel Knight is my second favorite game series after The Longest Journey/Dreamfall series. smile

Many of you are replaying games (over and over again). Personally I've played some 200 game titles since 2006 and not replayed any single one, ever. For some time I remember everything too well to find it worth but of course I can't use that excuse after years. But there are 'millions' of other games just waiting to be played so why bother? What's your driving force for replaying?

venus, I really don't know yet. Both sequels are currently on sale on GOG, 3.19€ piece and their stories sound interesting. GK2 in FMV looks decent but GK3 in 3D quite awful. Currently I think I'll skip GK3 and wait for a possible(?) remake some day. But I think I'll give GK2 a chance to convince me. I've played couple of older FMV games before and found them 'playable' in terms of graphics. So why not. But right now I need some action and take another sort of game to play...

I was the same way for a long time but a few years ago I just had a craving to start revisiting some games I had already played. Some of them I find I like a little better because I understand them better now (or am a little more seasoned as a player or something) but some aren't holding up as well in the replay. What I've found about remembering the games, is that I remember stuff in them, but some of what I think I remember is just in my imagination.

I'm currently playing Scratches: The Director's Cut (played only the original prior but not seeing any difference in this game). After this I think I am going to play The Vulture (first time play).

oldbroad .... The difference between the two versions is explained here HERE

TJL .... the reason why I bother re-playing is because a lot of the old games are high quality and can stand their ground against many a more modern offering yes

That was pretty fast Mad. I'm still working on Scratches. I didn't play Saturday because I was starting to get that frustrated feeling and needed a break. I did advance some on Sunday and stopped before I got stuck again so I would have a new area to start in on Wednesday but then for some reason I never did play on Wednesday. If all goes well though, I will finish the game this weekend.

Oh, KQ5 is not a long game for me, oldbroad.
Mainly because having played it so many times even I, with MY sieve like memory, can remember the order of things.
KQ6 will take me longer. Although I'm very familiar with it, too, it is a more complicated affair and I won't remember the intricate details quite so well.

Scratches is a totally different cup of tea !! yes

Just finished 3 indies in a row: Minims (charming), Tiny Echo (intriguing) and lastly,
Eartworms (nice drawing style, sadly I managed only to get a neutral ending). Al quite good games, not too hard.
Started FoxTail, because it resembles my beloved Kyrandia (I) so much, but sadly it is for me at least a bit tedious and repetitive.

For me, the games that I keep coming back to, are the ones that feels like a second home. Or an escape maybe. It doesn't matter to me that I have to do things that I have done before. Morrowind and Oblivion are games that I play over and over. Now, it's true that they are not exactly the same each time, but I play them for the atmosphere. I love starting the game, and just walk around and listen to the music for example.

And this is also true with all Carol Reed games. I got obsessed with them long before I knew Mikael, and started my own game.
Yes, I know most things by heart, but it's not about the puzzles. It's about just being there. Even though it's photographs, and not a 3D environment, you still feel like you are there. And that really spoke to me.

It might be the nice feeling of familiarity also. It's safe. I like safe. smile
