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 [/qb]
A true baager won't even sell their bad games. I probably have every game that belongs in the Hall of Shame. lol

I'd feel guilty about taking money for Forever Worlds.

Well, I suppose you could make a coaster with it, or a "sun catcher"... Or perhaps use it for leveler for a table with a short leg.... wink

I've been using it as a tester for dodgy old CD drives, which I suspect might "eat" the CD.

I have a feeling that one day ~ hopefully far distant ~ I am just going to have to have a copy of Forever Worlds to find out if its really as bad as people say... thumbsup

Last time we mentioned least favorite games I nominated "Labyrinth of Time" (nothing but an endless series of mazes connected by puzzles) and "Mystery of the Nautilus" because of all the timed stuff, strange clues, sudden deaths and especially the game-stopping robot.

Those are still my least favorite games but on reflection even those aren't total turkeys. I did enjoy them at times. Graphics were nice, music was pleasant, there were some puzzles I got a kick out of solving etc

Only one I've played this last year that I might add is "Bad Mojo." They really werent kidding, were they? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" /> But it was fun at first to find yourself playing an insect

In fact, I enjoyed every game mentioned on this thread (that I've played) to varying degrees. Of course, there are quite a few mentioned that I havent played. Chateau D'or definitely just moved down a few notches on my to-play pile lol

Its a rare game that brings nobody any joy. I thought that honor was reserved for Dun duh da! The Scroll scared (Is Forever Worlds really a contender for the Dungeon of Shame?)

I found "Midnight Nowhere", "Saalambo, "Conspiracies" and "A Quiet Weekend in Capri" to be a big bore.

I loved TLJ and those like it.

Really great seeing the diversity of opinions on this thread. For instance I'm currently playing Midnight Nowhere and Conspiracies and find both to have totally engrossing draw you in storylines. I also really liked TLJ and it's in my top 10 never get rid of pile for numerous replays, although from what I'm seeing Midnight Nowhere might fall in that category also (unfortunately someone tipped off the end to me and it's something I've always wanted to do/be in a game). Knowing what's really going on and playing the game from that perspective is wild!! Still would have preferred to not have been tipped off and then replayed knowing what was really going on. I totally agree with Forever (Forgotten) Worlds sharing the honor with The Scroll (couldn't even get that one to install) as one of the biggest turkeys of all time and a definite candidate for The Dungeon of Shame. As I stated before reading the diversity of opinions is one of the things I find most interesting on this site as well as the great people on it. thumbsup

Happy Gaming all,
Bill

Hi Susan. To you, and others who were surprised by my voting Dark Fall a 'Turkey' and a 'Chicken' ---

I LOVED the game. Did I forget to mention that? lol

I'll buy every game that Jonathan Boakes creates.

THAT'S why I voted for it. It was too good a game, IMO, to have those photos in it; and too delightfully CREEPY a game, IMO, to leave me standing in front of the Dark Fall's rainbow-colored puzzle that I repeatedly messed up... ALIVE.

I agree with you. I hesitate to buy Missing worrying about closing webpages. Sometimes I spend 5 ~ 6 years on playing a game. I dislike being pressed with lack of time. What if some part of the game vanish while I am playing it?

Oh, I know. The criminal would not wait for so long without any acting. laugh

Can anybody spell WARD! as in "The Ward"?

And I second (or third?) the vote for Chateau D'or!

I did ask the question re Missing's websites to the guy from TAC on a previous thread and he said the websites would be there forever....

I've avoided Chateau D'Or and The Scroll thanks to the 8,000 step DeBaaging program. It was inpatient care but I escaped & bought both The Quivering & the worst of the worst....Of Light and Darkness, before I was recaptured.

Repetitive timed sequence nightmares in OLAD that gave my brain carpal tunnel syndrome, not to mention feeling like a dog. Fetch that glowing orb! Good dog, now again and again and again and....ARGH!!! Plus the game stopping bug toward the end.

That disgusting save system in Quivering...<shudders> Absolutely hated to save. First game I ever quit. Started myself a trend. Too many games, too little time. I'd rather play a screensaver.

laugh Love, Jen laugh

I would have to say "Chateau d'Or". I laboriously searched the net, stores, thrift shops, yard sales etc. for this one. After travelling to several cities I finally found it and it had been marked down from $35 to $20. Woohoo! After finishing it the same day I started it, I sat and stared at the monitor for quite some time, waiting for the next chapter to begin, only to realize the game was over. More time passed.... but nothing happened. Finally my family had to pull me away from the computer, my hand still clutched to my mouse, waiting for more. As I feverishly slept the next few nights, I cried out "but it's such a big building, there must be more rooms in it!"..... mad
