I love the Nancy Drew games - in fact am saving the latest two as a treat for Christmas as I usually spend it alone.
Well, as you probably realise, I am relatively new to playing computer games but I find N.D.a very nice way to relax. OK, they are not as difficult as Black Mirror but do have some very good puzzles and near the end of each one has to be very quick or get killed. Think I have died more often in N.D. games than any other!
The graphics are good, the plots make sense, and each new game is more of a challenge than the last.
Having said all that, as I have passed my three score year and.......(well, that's best kept to myself), possibly I need to relax at times. But then again, I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of games such as Black Mirror etc, and the wonderful graphics of Syberia.
Don't know if this helps but don't let the gender put you off. In Black Mirror (nearly finished) I have been playing the part of a male.
I like the Christmas look of Gameboomers, don't you. It is all much more easy to read.
I'll send a letter to Santa perhaps he will leave a Nancy Drew in your stocking this year - oh dear, I doubt if you wear stockings. Only joking!
And when the one Great Scorer comes to write against your name, He marks not that you won or lost, but how you played the game
