Hi all,

It's freezing here in the UK at the moment (well, freezing for me), so I got to thinking "where, in a game, would I like to be right now...."

Imagine a virtual Travel Agency, where the hugely talented staff (with a little magical assistance) could whisk us off to adventure game locations....

Where would you go?

I personally would love to be in Timelapse's Egypt setting. No tourists. No traffic. Just me and that built-in camera.... bliss..... I'd try and catch that black cat too..... <img border="0" alt="woozy" title="" src="graemlins/woozy.gif" />

Emily, I class the Sims as an adventure in its own way.. we just don't know what is around thr corner, Grim reaper, sadistic Guinea pig.. so I guess it should qualify!!

In true adventure terms, I would like to be in Legend of the asassin & the prophet.. in the camp outside the houris well. Sand, water, great scenery!!

For comfort, mmm must be the castle in GK 2 thumbsup

Hugs

Shame, I haven't played the Sims. I presume each players beach would be different....

Tigger, how come Yorkshire hasn't made it's adventure debut? Or has it?

Now night has fallen, I've ditched Egypt, and would happily visit McGinty's Bar (Black Dahlia) for a quick beer.... before setting out for a look around New Orleans (Forgotten or GK1)....
...all the Voodoo you can eat for $5 anyone?

Mac, Shivers 1, great idea! If only that museum really existed. We'd all book a flight right now. What's your favourite room? Me = mythology room, or the stairway up from the space room... (lovely music).

Since the long ago movies of Frankenstein to Abbott and Costello I've always been intrigued by hidden passageways and rooms and mazes.

You can forget anything on the beach. Florida's beaches have pretty much gone the way of Condo's and Hotels. Sure miss the days when you could park on the beach and roam the boardwalk and penney arcades and roller coasters. laugh Of course, if we're doing it in fiction-land I guess all is possible. thumbsup

I'm already in New Orleans, Jonathan! If you come by I'll buy you a Blackened Voodoo Beer! (yes, there is such a thing!)

I think I'd like to be wisked off to the parallel world in Longest Journey! (as long as I can get back!)

Louis, be afraid, I might take you up on that Blackened Voodoo Beer.... (you're quite right, I don't believe it exists for a second, which gives me all the more reason to come and see if it's real) <img border="0" alt="pacify" title="" src="graemlins/pacify.gif" />

Hmm, if we had more time (and cash) we could plan a whole adventure game cruise..... a floating convention of AdGam fans....

Oh Tigger, I would love to be transported back to the castle in GK2! And I'd love to be in New Orleans, in a game or otherwise. Hey, Dark Fall, come to think of it, I wouldn't mind Yorkshire either. But maybe Cornwall would be a bit warmer?

Well, my destination would have to involve a reversal in time.....I would love to visit the Los Angeles of the 1940's as depicted in NOIR. I moved to L.A. in 1960 and lived there until 1984 when I moved up here to Washington State. By then though, the magic had largely turned into urban sprawl, traffic and smog. I would have loved to see L.A. in its magic days. The scenes in NOIR have always fascinated me. smile

Ooooooh, I couldn't resist this topic. I would LOVE to be in the house in the Dungeon Master's lair, in Zork Grand Inquisitor, surrounded by those sunflowers and snapdragons. That scene is one of my most cherished scenes in all of adventure gaming. It's a place I always wished I could actually live in. Ah, to dream...

In the tree house of Channelwood - the one that is decorated with taste (forget which brother it was, but wouldn't want either of them there).
