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.
I did not even like the premise it is built on....
I do not want to buy any game that is not self contained.. What happens when the developer decides not to host the webpages that are part of the content anymore? The game becaomes worthless.. The publisher tries to herald it as some sort of wonderful new direction for adventure games.. yeah, sure..

What great responses, people! <img border="0" alt="bravo" title="" src="graemlins/bravo.gif " />

After reading them, I have moved some games to the bottom of my "to buy" list i.e. Chateau D'Or, which seems to be pretty universally disliked.. eek


Many others games appear to have split decisions, and that is not really surprising.. This is subjective, and as some people want more story and less puzzles, and others want less story and more puzzles, I can see why some people would love (for example) TLJ, and others would hate it..

In any case, this is really interesting reading everyone....... smile

Contribution to mega-turkeys list(since this is neutral ground):

Beyond Atlantis II (Atlantis 3)-gorgeous graphics, but completely nonsensical in its number of bizarre puzzles and utter lack of plot. The dreadful ending had me staring at the screen, baffled, slack-jawed and glaze-eyed.

Amerzone-sorry, but to me just plain lame and somewhat childish. If it had been marketed strictly as a game for the young, I'd have no beef with it.

Thanks to this forum, for many years I've been able to avoid purchasing any number of lousy games. I'm forever grateful!

I'd like to add In Memorium to my list. The concept was interesting but when I got into it it was just plain blah!!!!

Tigger, I'm not sure what the Trick or Treat movie was about, but I don't think the game is based on any movie license. The game is about a guy who just got a job at a retirement home, and they are planning a big Halloween party. Things are not what they seem to be though at the home. The ironic thing is the game was fairly vanilla until the first cutscene when a lot was revealed that made you want to continue...then crash. That sucks.

lakerz, in the same spirit as banging one's head against the wall because it feels so good when you quit, I think I'll load up Trick or Treat, if the problem cutscene is not too far into the game. Is it?

Good luck, nickie. lakerz sent me a saved game and I tried to get past the crash on 3 different systems/OS to no avail.

I'd adding my voice to the Chateau D'Or group. It was very short, and I absolutely HATED having to "study" in order to pass a quiz and progress in the game.
And I am eternally grateful for ANY adventure game in which I CANNOT die, and thoroughly enjoyed Dark Fall!

Thanks Scout! I doubt very much that I'll have different results, but I was just curious, and the game has been sitting here on the shelf forever.

Regarding "....Weekend in Capri"..... JA ought to be shot for giving it such a high rating.. Very misleading and disappointing.. The game is far too flawed to get an A+ rating... scared

I really do not know what game Quandary reviewed, but it could not have been AQWIC... "Think Myst but in a real location"...? Umm, no......

AQWIC and FW are the first 2 adventure games I would actually consider selling... (I am a real horder when it comes to adventure games)..... laugh
