No offense, Porthos, I'm sure that there others out there who liked him, as well. I just always felt that he was interrupting my thoughts.

Arthur has a very interesting effect on Journeyman 3. The first time I played the game, I thought ARthur was a hints mechanism or something and turned him off. The game played very seriously to me. Which at the time - I really enjoyed.

A few years later - I replayed the game and forgot to "turn off" Arthur's comments. What a difference in the game atmosphere! With Arthur it plays very funny, has a campy atmosphere and is just a totally different experience. Some very funny lines as you get deeper into it. I recommend trying it both ways. You'll get two games for the price of one. smile

I too think Arthur is the funniest character in a game. And besides being cute and funny, he really gives a lot of interesting historical information, esp. in JP 2. thumbsup

I don't know about who the most annoying character is though, I'll have to think about it more. laugh

I didnt like Arthur at first because his voice didnt run well for me so I turned him off when I first played and enjoyed Journeyman sans sidekick. Back then I'd have agreed with you, Lady Kestrel.

After we got a better setup, his presence was more pleasing because his comments didn't make my game just about freeze anymore and he sounded warm instead of just weird. Then I could finally concentrate on what he was saying & enjoy the jokes. Laura is right, Arthur's presence or absence changes the feel of the game (esp J3) tremendously. (Course Laura generally *is* right heh)

Hmmmmmmm... I may have to replay J3! I didn't care for him in one of the first two so I just played without him in J3. If he's cracking jokes, then that I don't want to miss! <G>

Okkkkkkkkkkkkkk... I know! Worst character was that stupid gorilla in Full Moon!!! I turned that one 'off', too, after a while.... only I didn't pick the gorilla! I picked ? ......something else. hahaha Ahhhhhhhh, YES, I remember it well! hehehe

Well, it's debatable whether it really qualifies as an adventure game, but

Hey! Listen!!!

that little winged annoyance who keeps chiming in

Hey! Listen!!!

every three seconds is Navi, your fairy/guide in

Hey! Listen!!!

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Talk about

Hey! Listen!!!

annoying.... <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/cry.gif" />

Don't want to start a riot but there was a certain oversized hamster sidekick in Grim Fandango who prompted me to turn down the sound whenever his annoyanceship was within earshot. Killed an otherwise splendid game dead for me.
