I'm 35 & was strictly adventure until this past year. I, too, was one of the Boomers enchanted by Divine Divinity & now I can't get enough of RPG's. I generally play one RPG & one adventure at the same time, so if combat gets too hairy I can relax & twitch my brain instead of my fingers. RPG's last sooooo much longer so I usually go through 3 adventures in the course of one RPG.

I don't usually like shooters or action/adventures unless there's a god mode. But I have been enjoying Beyond Good & Evil, which is a very odd, but fun, game. Loved Outcast. Can't seem to get the hang of surviving in NOLF, but I've got death down pat! wink I don't play anything that requires jumping. I'm a total klutz & spaz out every time.

laugh Love, Jen laugh

I'm 39 and LOVE adventure games. To be honest, i'm just learning what the other games are (Thanks, Ana!) but they do sound exciting!!!

I'll be 74 this month, and the only non-adventure game that I care for is Diablo/Hellfire. My son got me started on that even before I discovered adventure games, and I still enjoy popping in the CD and play one of the characters I've created. But I don't play on-line (got tired of those foul mouthed little twerps propositioning me lol ) and I didn't really care for Diablo 2, because of the saving system...

Hi Sandy
Yes come try DD, we'd love it and you'd be a riot--I can just imagine all the trouble you could get into--and AND there are BIG hairy spiders and some pinchy bugs too. Oh and bees and wasps. Yicks I didn't realize when I started to tease you, that there were ALL your scary bugs in the game. They are a tiny part of it though.

I'm 51 and when I joined Gameboomers (not long ago) I was a strict adventure game player and then came the fall...and now I keep a very open mind about all kinds of games. (Now my favorite game would be Real Myst with Loot! whistle )

Hi Sandy.........DD is totally addictive and Ana should be ashamed of herself for getting someone else hooked on it.
I'll admit it, it's totally immersive and I'm loving it. I reek at it but it's fun. I'm warning you though, save your games and save often! Also, set a timer so that you will leave the game in a reasonable period of time to take care of other matters..........like child care, meal preparation. bill paying, just the little things that must be done. It looks like it could take a looooong time to play this one.
Oh, warning....don't let your child be in the room while you're playing if he's squeamish.
Ana strikes again!

So you are passing the blame to Nipomo, Doreen and L4L?

Hi dithika and welcome to the forums welcome

dithika writes , quote: "I am female and just turned 30. I used to play computer games as a kid but stopped for years. It was Myst that got me back into playing games and now I play adventure games the most."

I'm glad to see younger people like yourself playing adventure games and you can always count on other members of Gameboomers to help if you get stuck or need tech-support with a game. wave

To jen in chgo : I've seen alot of posts about Divine Divinity and have decided I'm gonna have to get it thumbsup I played Baulders Gate a while back and had a lot of fun with it. DD looks like a similar type game , but with more depth .

I thought Beyond Good and Evil was a wonderful game . The last boss fight is pretty hard , but very rewarding when you beat him . happydance

I didn't really get into BG&E. I found it too bizare and there was no real intro as to who you were and what your supose to do at the begining. Tho i kept playing for abit longer i just gave up. This is on the xbox i tryed it on as i recommended it to my bro as i thought it would be a sorta adventure game but in 3d and a bit of action but its mainly action/platform sorta game. Big let down from what i thought it would be like.

DD looks ok but theres nothing thats gona beat Kotor i think for a RPG.

Hey Skeeter wave

My problem with "Knights of the Old Republic" is the turn-based combat. I'd rather do my own fighting .

I had the same problem at the beginning of BGAE . They should have laid out the objectives more clearly. But after a while I got the hang of it . smile
