Reading the replies to that TLJ thread, well, it just made me wonder...what games did you absolutely HAVE to give up on? Like, uninstalling was actually a joy?
Like for example Schizm! Ptttthhh!!!!

Schizm would be #1 on my list for sure!
Martian Gothic-Unification would probably be second

The only game I had to give up on was Amazon Queen . My reconfiguration caused me to be unable to play it at all so I uninstalled it and gave up.

I gave up on Broken Sword 2 - I got to the art gallery, and for some reason could not get past there - the walkthroughs were no help, they just said, do "this" and you're done - I was like, yehhh, but I can't seem to do "that".

Anyway - anyone else experience this? I never really looked into it - maybe there's a cure.

1. The Longest Journey
2. Tex Murphy Overseer - Very poorly designed controls, terrible graphics.
3. The Final Cut - Poor game all around.

Had pleasure in uninstalling these.

We gave up on The Final Cut. It had nothing to do with difficulty... we just hated it and it was virtually unplayable because the interface sucked and the game made zero sense.

Chateau D'or - I played it almost to the end and just couldn't take it anymore.

Nine - the piano end puzzle - same reason.

Tale of Orpheo's Curse, one of my favorite games. The MAC version played brilliantly, but my MAC is broken. Sooo got it for the PC and have tried 20 times doing this and that to get it to run and no such luck. frown

Can't get Lost In Time to run, Ark of Time, Amazon Queen or the sound in Simon 1.

okay, here's a big bid to win the boohissboo award...I gave up on Gabriel Knight 3...no tech problems, but I swear if I had to listen to Tim Curry (Gabe) one more second I was gonna go postal!!! I like Tim Curry in general but sheesh! It was just waaaay to irritating!
I also gave up on Atlantis the Lost Tale on account of that save system, you know, the one they did NOT give you? Pttthhhh!!!

The save system for Atlantis: The Lost tales was the inspiration for "Again With the Black Dahlia." hehehehehehe

Beyond Atlantis. Between getting extremely dizzy from moving around, <img border="0" alt="woozy" title="" src="graemlins/woozy.gif" /> and trying to imitate that scungy Birdman.... mad I said the heck with this and traded the game. laugh Way too frustrating for me!

My game was Lightfall. No one wanted to like this game more than me. It's really too hard, and too long, for me, but, given my trusty walkthrough for when I got stuck, I was willing to give it a go. I started it, got engrossed in the story, and then I was off, wending my way through the puzzles, and trying to figure out how I could get that little baby back. It certainly gave the character something to do - as far as I remember, the character wasn't doing much of anything, when the mystery intervened.

The problem was that I started to have trouble with the interface, and then I waited too long to finish the game. I just didn't like how the game looked, anymore. I can like how older games look, even though they are older, if something in "the look" appeals to me. That ceased to happen, with Lighthouse. I also found moving through the game to be awkward (and how hard can "point and click" be!) - it ended up being more and more difficult to get where I wanted to go. I don't know what it was, maybe I needed to reinstall the game. But, I didn't do that, I just stopped.
