I suppose it would be any game I didn't finish, cause I don't have enough time to finish games that suck, when there are better ones waiting to be played! These include Crystal Key, Beyond Atlantis, Dracula Resurrection, Riven (OK I finished that one - didn't suck, just too hard), King's Quest 8 for all the running around and fighting. I think KQ8 tops them all, because it followed 7 great classic games.

Just terrible.

Shivers 2 was also the first game I played where I met a dead end because of a game bug - a video wouldn't trigger the appearance of an item that was necessary to progress in the game.

Definitely The Omega Stone. Especially since I played ROTS right before and enjoyed it so much. Was so excited to be able to continue with a sequel. As soon as I started playing it was like someone knocked all the joy out of me. frown

A much as I like point and click first person games, my vote has to go to Omega Stone. This was one game that did not measure up to the hype it created. Please do not misunderstand me, it was not a bad game but it was not nearly as good as they sad it would be. TROS was such a good game, in spite of the fact that some say the graphics were grainy. I think that we were lead to expect too much from Omega Stone. The story was chopped up and branched into unfinished sidelines. The wanderings underground were depressing and the fact that we had to traverse the hedge maze several timed did not endear the game to me. The end was abrupt and than we were treated to the ramblings of an unsympathetic character to top it all.

Riddle of the Sphinx- I couldn't wait to play it, but found that it didn't match up to the games i've played so far. There were some long, dark, tedious passages to get thru and all the rooms were sort of alike- ROTS couln't even begin to measure up to the game I'm playing now-Thief the Dark Project, where each level has an entirely original environment-or say, Zork nemisis.

There are so many excellent older games out there, It should be difficult to find a loser if one shops carefully enough.

I completely agree with Ramona. Mystery of the Druids was the most disappointing game I have ever played. I was very excited when I purchased it and rushed home to install it immediately. I ended up wanting to get it over with even more than I had originally wanted to play it. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

Myst III: Exile is my second place winner. I liked the other Myst games, but Exile just didn't seem to fit. duh

Many would disagree, but I would say Faust was my biggest disappointment.

Simon 3D.
After the charm of the first two games it was a big disappointment,was very buggy and had way too many 'action bits'.In fact if it hadn't been for the members here I'd never have finished it.Even the ending good as it was wasn't good enough for me to keep the game and I traded it away.

Still have Simon 1 and 2 to enjoy though. laugh

Incog.

I'am afraid to say this but for me it was syberia. After all the hype and the long wait I just found something lacking in it, I just didn't find what most of you raved about even though I wanted to very much. I did like it but was disappointed somehow, hope 2 is more to my liking.

Well, if you liked it at all, it can't have been a total bummer.
Maybe a halfways bummer. laugh
