Traitor's Gate: Loved the game, but I bought a new system, and just never got around to reinstalling so I didn't finish. I guess maybe I didn't love it all that much.

Beyond Atlantis 2: Tech problem

The Longest Journey: Tech problem, but probably would have given up anyway. Waaaay too much talking.

Riven: Bored to tears.

Qin: Number One on my list of all time boring games. I think I played all of 30 minutes before deciding this wasn't my cup of tea.

1, the Legend of Lotus Spring - lousy interface
2, Oddyssey, In Search of Ulysses - too hard to move around
3, the crystal key - yuck!
4, as of yesterday - Rhem - too many pipes - I don't want to be a plumber! also, very dingy scenery, and buildings that are like mazes

Forgot to add - American McGee's Alice - shudder!

Ah! I forgot about Rhem. First time I played, and got dumped to 640x480, I said this isn't going to work. Wish I was among the lucky few who traded, rather than paid for it as I did.

This game, unlike Qin, didn't last 30 minutes. It didn't last 30 seconds.

Maupiti Island (must be the 102th. time I mention this game). I _did_ eventually finish it but it took me like... er... five years or so. Probably the game I most gave up on and resumed.

I did give up on a few more but this one remains my all-time record!

Fork in the Tale. So awful I don't even want to favor it with words.

Okay......That games that I hated the most were:

-----Nine
-----Gabriel Knight Series -Could never figure out what to do next in any of the games without a hint or a walkthrough. So, I just gave up.
-----Riddle of The Sphinx
-----Alfred Hitchcock: The Final Cut <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

I gave up on The Time Machine. That was a major stinker. I also played Odyssey for about an hour and gave up on that as well. A few games I have just not gotten around to finish, like Omega Stone, Nautilus. I plan to, though.

Just thought of some more pet baddies...

Urban Runner - I get exhausted every time I even think of this game

Night Trap - blech
Panic In the Park - I detest anything arcade
MadDog McCree - see above reason.
DogDays - liked the game ok - but an arcade machine in a laundry room stopped me cold.

The Time Machine. Couldn't get my character to climb onto a crate for some reason, and finally gave up because I wasn't enjoying the game anyway.

Arthurs Quest: Horrible, horrible game.

Schizm - games should be fun. That one gave me a headache. And one more, I think it was Time Machine? slapforehead It had a lot of keyboard controls, I prefer mouse driven.
