Mine would have to be The Omega Stone. I just disliked it so much that it was like a chore for me to play it but, I was determined to finish it. I think it took me a month and a half. duh

We just finished Case of the Rose Tattoo, and it took us weeks. Not that we didn't like the game, but there is SO MUCH dialogue, reading and detail in it that we had to take it in little 2-4 hour chunks. Any longer and we started getting bored. By comparison, I think we spent about a week on TLJ, the next longest amount of time we've spent on a game.

Outcast and NOLF. I know they are not adventure games. Well Outcast to me is an adventure/action hybrid.

For adventure games - Black Dahlia and Pandora Directive the first time.

Riven. First game, didn't have a strategy book and didn't know about boards like this yet. wink It took me a little over 6 weeks.

Of the games I played straight through and didn't quit playing in the middle for some reason, Case of the Rose Tattoo took the longest. It was just a big game, with lots of places to visit and lots of things to go back and check once you had new information.

Three games that got delayed for a while when I was partway through them and which I went back to later and finished are Outcast, Schizm, and the first Tomb Raider game.

'Discworld' . . . . Still struggling . . . . I won't cheat 'cos it ruins a game for me. It's been months though ! 'Discworld 2' was easier. I'm sure. Hopefully, it'll be worth it in the end, but intermittent gameplay isn't my favourite way to play games. Second slowest . . . . 'Riven' ! Had to use a walkthru' there though. Still a fantastic game experience for me, even with a couple of cheats !

I'd have to say "Simon 3D", even with occasional peeking at the walkthrough, this one took me forever, it's such a long game!

Well we havent finished Omega Stone yet, so that may be the winner. Mostly because we like it enough to *really* solve it (thanks for help in the hint forum, folks) & not just use a wt.

Schizm took awhile once we got back to it, even with a hint or 3.

Like catsmom, mine too was Sanitarium. I got VERY stuck at a maze-like stone structure that you walk through (up and down stairs and dodging electrical currents that come up through the stones under your feet). I eventually got SO frustrated with this lone puzzle that I set the game aside for MONTHS before returning to complete it. However, it remains one of my top ten favorite games to this day. When I returned to finish it, I found the same puzzle quit simple and finished the game that same day. It's a fantastic game!
PLAYING ON PC: World of Warcraft...nothing else...there is no need for ANY other game when you have THIS one to play!! LOL

Black Dahlia took me 116 hours over 24 straight days. And that included 9 trips to universal hints to solve some of the most difficult puzzles. Loved that game, definitely a classic.
