Hi smile

In my book, "9" is certainly a turkey that shouldn't gobble any more.... wave

Someone, around these parts, once said they turned the box upside down so they could pretend it was a different game laugh

I liked 9 a lot, with the exception of the final puzzle and the fact the game window was small.

My vote goes to Trick or Treat. I know I'm not supposed to pick a game because of bugs, but this game is impossible to get to the end of due to a bug that occurs right after the first big cutscene. I haven't met anybody who's managed to get past it and it's been tested on every type of computer from a 386 run DOS 5.0 to a new PC running WinXP. Gobble gobble.

I haven't played Forever Worlds (nor am I likely ever to), but it sounds like it deserves the award as well.

I'd forgotten about Forever Worlds. That one certainly trumps them all as far as turkeyhood goes.

I don't agree about RHEM at all though. It was a puzzle-oriented game that had wonderfully logical mechanical puzzles. Not for everyone but certainly no turkey.

I don't know if I would call them "turkeys" but these are games that I couldn't get myself to finish, either due to being majorly difficult to progress for me, had me totally confused, or just boring to me...

Traitor's Gate
Safecracker
Temujin
The Quivering
Feeble Files
Twinsen's Odyssey

popcorneater -- you hated the Nancy Drew game The Haunted Carousel? scared

So you keep saving your game, because experienced adventure gamers KNOW they can get killed off any second; and they're ready to load that saved game - right? But nothing happens to you! The game moves forward, and the sounds get scarier; and nothing happens to you. rolleyes

Finally, your in the 'endgame' sequence -- staring right into the "Darkness" itself... and what pops up? A lovely, multi-colored and NON-scary puzzle. You make a mistake... and nothing bad happens to you. You just try again. Then another pretty puzzle to solve... and nothing happens. You're at the end, and thousands of lost souls are crying out to you for help. You feel the pressure on you, to NOT MESS UP. But you DO mess up. Do you get EATEN? NO! Do you die? NO! Do you get (at least) yelled at by the scary "Darkness"? No!!!

It just stares at you from its fountain of souls, and waits patiently for you to get those lyrics right. You don't die, because you CAN'T die. And you realize you've been CONNED.

BTW, this is for the AMERICAN release.

--- --- Give Dark Fall a 'Turkey' AND a 'Chicken' award, IMHO...

In these sorts of threads I used to say Temujin, but now I have a new winner, Traitors Gate 2.
Gadzooks, did this game have issues.

I have to go along with Nine also. It is still sitting on my shelf where it will probably stay just because it seems sinful to toss games.
Gee, maybe it will become a classic some day as the worst game ever and be worth some money. wink

Actually, I really liked that you couldn't die in Dark Fall. I like games where you can't die. To me experiencing the fear, suspense and anticipation does not necessarily imply that you have to be able to die in the game. In fact, I feel a sense of accomplishment that I fought evil and lived whether dying was possible or not. There's enough chances to die in the real world--why put it in my game??

but anyway, turkeys.

The two games i've never been able to finish are Thorgal's Quest and Traitor's Gate. The first was just annoying and had too many stupid action elements that I didn't want to deal with; boy was that a waste of money. The latter was just non-sensical and boring and contrived. I mean, I'm sure in the real world a super secret agent would be sent out on a mission with a lock-pick that only works on one specific 16th century kind of lock. Yuck. Words cannot express my revulsion for that one.

The two that I actually finished but thought were dreadful: Mystery of the Druids and The Omega Stone. Both had real potential that they just didn't live up to. All that back and forthing in TOS about drove me mad, too.

Missing/In Memoriam.

Mostly because the lack of a gameworld annoyed me no end. I probably would have quit (I rarely bother finishing a game I don't like) if I wasn't playing it for review. Exploring a cool gameworld is far and above the main reason I play adventure games. Missing/In Memoriam was the equivalent of being tied to my chair and forced to fill out tax forms all day.
