Please list point and click adventure games as they are the ones I love to play. Or possibly games like Gabriel knight 3 or broken sword 3 types.

I loved the longest journey and would like similar games with huge storys and good longativity and style. I prefere adventure games with lots of people to talk to as i like that bit in adventure games (voice acted people).

Games I have played before and probably still have are:

TLJ
Tex Murphy - Overseer and UAKM
In Cold Blood
Drunna MG - bought for a pound at a pound shop lol
Discworld Noir
All of the monkey island games
SW KOTOR
Sacred
Gabriel Knight 3
Riddle of Master Lu
Baulders gate 1 and 2 (prefere xbox version and the co-op myself)
Simon 1 2 and 3
Indiana Jones FOA and emporers tomb
The Dig - played recently and loved it
Space Quest 4
Leisure Suit Larry games
King Quest 1 and 3 (i think)
Police Quest 1 2 and remake of 1 (prefere original 1 not vga one).
Morrowing - elder scrolls (bit boring i thought and fps trouble in hubs)
Broken Sword 2, also had 1 but couldn't play cos of compatability problems or somit)
Most startrek Adventure games and space sims.
Both CSI 1 and 2. (not bad but too easy)


So any games you think i should try can u please list them smile

Runaway and Black Mirror come to mind. I also loved Egyptian Prophesy.

Ah, i played the 2nd one and it looked nice but didnt know what to do at the start and the sound wouldn't play at all, maybe with me discovering dosbox and such it might play the sound.

I have XP pro btw.

You might like the recently released game "Moment of Silence", set in an Orwelian future.

I 2nd the recomendation for Runaway, and if you can find a copy and don't mind keyboard controls, Grim Fandango is a great game.

I have Grim Fandango, its one of the best adventure games you can get and it was a shame we didn't see any sequals.

Grim Fandango is outstanding. Wonderful atmosphere and the most amusing sidekick I can recall in an adventure game, and the same good puzzle-sense as the Monkey Island games.

Aside from that, if you can find the old stuff, the Legend of Kyrandia is an interestind series, particularly the second one (The Hand of Fate).

Edit: Oh, just saw Zork: Grand Inquisitor on my shelf. Good times there too.

Hi Skeeter and

welcome

to GameBoomers!

Here are some great point and click adventures:

The Myst Series
Dark Fall & Dark Fall 2
Aura Fate of the Ages
Alida
Rhem (very puzzle heavy)
The Cameron Files 1 & 2
Beyond Atlantis (also called Atlantis 2)
Amerzone

Also, a really good quite old game, if you can find it, is Dragonsphere. It's about the same era as the Kyrandia games.

Have fun!

WW

Thanks for the welcome WW smile

I did once play Legend of Kyrandia on the amiga as a friend lent me it for a bit, was ok but a bit weird with the crystals or gems or whatever u collected and all that.

Brother got Myst Masterpiece Edition but its first person and not very interesting I thought. I like 3rd person view ones, like Simon T Sorcerer or TLJ types.

You might like Uru, then. It's kind of a spin-off from Myst and you don't need to have played them to play it. And it can be either 1st person or third, but actually works better in third. I didn't think I'd like it because I trend to like 1st person games more, but I'm playng it now and enjoying the heck out of it.

Hi Skeeter and welcome to Gameboomers! Sounds like you enjoy the same sort of adventures that I do, with lots of conversation and story. I would second Louis' idea of Moment of Silence. Great story, third person, lots of conversation.
Some others I don't see on your list:
Syberia
the first two Discworlds
The Crystal Skull
Arthur's Knights
And since you do play RPGs, Have you played Divine Divinity? It's a great one!
For an action/adventure, there's Beyond Good and Evil and Zanzarah. laugh
Oh, and the Egytian Prophecy isn't Egypt II.

Thanks for the welcome back Nickie. smile

Dont mention Beyond Good and Evil, i recommended it to my brother and he bought it and i feel really bad now as he didnt like it, he likes adventure games too, and i must admit its weird game and definately not really a adventure game and its more like a action/platform game.

I am currently bidding for syberia collection (1 and 2) on ebay so hope to get that. Mainly for brother as his birthday is same as mine (hope for kotor 2 off him hehe) and besides i dont have a dvd drive and the syberia 2 pack is a dvd version.

Oh and I also have QFG4 Shadow of Darkness (aint played it really) and The Ward. The Ward is weird it wasnt too bad when u get to meet ppl in it but the begining is hard and confusing, only got through a bit of it cos of a walkthrough. (i will die in hell for that lol "walkthrough"...

I liked the demo on psx of discworld 2 and really wanted to get it but these days its expensive as its rare on pc.

Is URU like TLJ?

Well, not really. It sounds like you like a lot of character interaction and URU is similar to the rest of the Myst games in that there isn't anyone else--just you. So maybe you wouldn't like it (or any of my recommendations, really, as I tend to like puzzle-y things more than character-y things).

Yes i like the character interaction, not really in myst with it just you and no one else plus the puzzles were weird. Not into hardcore puzzle games either.

So would i like dark fall as i have been reading some reviews and i must admit i have it on my wanted list on trades topic in traders post forum. As the gfx looked cool. But if its just you in a old house or somit alone and just puzzles to solve i dont think i will like it, can anyone tell me if its like that or not.

I like games with a whole world or universe to explore and lots of people to interact with. More realistic gfx like TLJ or syberia types i like the better but not an absolute requirement.

Don't forget Still Life, coming out next month. I downloaded the demo, and can't wait until I get it.

Yeah had a look at the info at adventure company site, looks interesting, is it 3rd person view and u think there will be many npc's to talk to and lots of inventory stuff to do. smile

When is it coming out anyone know? And any upcoming releases i should look out for apart from the obvious Dreamfall: The Longest Journey 2 smile

I don't think you would like Dark Fall, then. it is just you in a house alone with puzzles to solve and spooky things to experience. If that kind of thing is an absolute no go for you, Dark Fall and its brother won't be your cup of tea at all.

But some I left off my list because they were too character heavy for me (among other things) are:

Journey to the Center of the Earth
Mystery of the Druids
The Watchmaker
Jack the Ripper

Can't remember if anyone else has mentioned those or not.

Read a review of Jack the ripper (latest 2004 game) and looks and sounds good. Always love being a detecive like in tex murphy smile

By the way theres alot of hype on Neverwinter nights game, and i did like dungeon seige but a friend said to me NWN is much better. How exactly is much better and can someone give their experience and views (especially if you have played both) smile

Hi Skeeter wave

Have you played The Feeble Files? If not, I think you might like it, it is very like the Simon the Sorcerer games, am not sure but I think its by the same company. laugh

Try Longest Journey. And I too can recommend Syberia 1 & 2. I nearly cried at the end of Syberia 2 as the graphics were so beautiful
