Hello Kat and Tigger and all-

So great to be here, such a shame about TAC, I have asked them why, but so far they are mum about it. It is so nice and friendly here and I look forward to many happy evenings.

Thanks

Margo wave

Dear Kat-

I can never seem to get into my Nancy Drew game, I have had it a year and never go further and keep putting it on and taking it off. Is there something I am missing, like being more patient//

Thanks

Margo

Hi Margo... I mean, Maggie57! wave

I'd like to add my own personal...

--- ---

to you!

Now, which Nancy Drew game are you playing? And after you tell me, we probably should move our discussion over to the Hints forum here... wink

RPGs do have fighting, but some of them are like a whole bunch of adventure games put together. Years ago I had no idea that some of the games I played were of a different genre, just thought they were adventure games with fighting. rolleyes A consistent favorite over on the RPG forum is Divine Divinity, that quite a few "adventure only" folks have played and enjoyed. Lots of help there too for it, should anyone want to give it a try. devil
Nickie, you make a persuasive argument! wink

I'll keep Divine Divinity in mind, the next time I'm shopping for games to pile up on my dusty, 'unplayed' shelf... smile

Isn't it interesting that games with FIGHTING in them are more popular (in general) than games with peaceful, lovely environments in them...? think

Hey Katsmom and all the other refugees from TAC, isn't this a nice place and nobody picks on you, I love it. Only problem is there is so much going on that I don't get anything done. This thread is tempting me into the RPG games, Raj is now raving on them. A plus is I have my grandkids about, in case I have no clue as to what to do. Next step is to get a scared OMG console, the excuse is that the kids will use when they come and they don't have to drag theirs over. Plus I really really want to play Van Helsing, even if it sucks, does it suck?

Hi again, Tigger. Here I am, up all night again (where I am, anyway).

While the daughter's away, the mom will play (hehehe)

I've played all the Nancy Drew games. Trouble is, I don't REMEMBER much about them today. The kids in the TAC forum kept telling me to play them AGAIN... but I insisted there were all these NEW games I needed to play first.

So when I try to help with ND games, I generally have to consult a walkthrough.

Yes, it is interesting. Does it in some ways factor in dealing with everyday stress - either doing a zen thing and being calmed by having a peaceful environment, or releasing the pent up road rage by blasting away at baddies?

Speaking of bad memory (or were we?)... I forgot I'd asked that question, nickie!

--- --- You're right. I guess we all DO have a 'dark side' that needs a safe outlet...

Divine Divinity, you suggested? wink

Is this actually true? Isn't The Sims the best-selling PC game of all time? And Myst must rank well toward the top.

It would be interesting to see a chart showing the ten best-selling PC games of all time.

Hi everyone!!!
Just wanted to let everyone know I'm still around. Good to see some familiar characters here. Terrible thing about TAC. Helping people thru stuck points in their games is part of the enjoyment in adventure gaming for me. I already miss it.

Becky, you can kill people in the Sims too.... just get em to go for a swim and remove the ladders, make em cook when they have no skill points, get a guineapig....

Katsmom, I have all the ND's but only started playing them recently so I can remember most bits... especially the timed sequences!!!

welcome to Gb mbari!!
