I gave up on Riddle of the Sphinx too. I think Shivers was the only first person game that I really enjoyed.

Syd, I think Fork in the Tale was the inspiration of somebody's flashback nightmare laugh I rue every day I looked so hard to find it. And glad to see the other comments on The Quivering, because I thought I was just missing something! Bleaaach!And Nine - one of my very first trades on gameTZ; I couldn't run fast enough to the post office to trade that puppy.

Nickie, I remember seeing it for $9.99 and thinking, for ten bucks how bad can it be? I found out - it can be really, really, bad lol

As for 9, I'm going to have to be on some serious medication before I try that one again laugh

Sometimes it's for something they don't mention - or for something they say is bothersome, but don't really explain HOW bothersome. More often it's that they just don't care that much for that genre of game.
