Almost forgot about Winslow, however Winslow I believe was simply putting on an act to hide his true personality, in Samuel's case I believe It actually WAS his personality.

so far (and I'm only in ch1) Samuel from BM is arrogant and autocratic... nothing like a true aristocrat.... Oh and the worker you are referring to had only been with them for a year.... (if you mean the gardener!!)

Oh I forgot about how annoying that desk clerk was in Starship Titanic! and the bellbot, and the bomb computer, but the parrot NOBODY could ever forget!

They were deliberately annoying though, that was part of the humor & charm. I'm not sure that counts...

unless blowing them up deliberately would give you great enjoyment.

oh wait....

Oh oh, I thought of one! Kate Walker's fiance (from Syberia, of course)! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" /> I can't even remember the jerk's name, what was it? And geez, what a big baby. Kate's "friend" wasn't so great either, sleeping with the fiance, or did they just kiss, or did they not really say, I forget, but it was definitely something...sheesh.

Other than that, I usually love most of the characters in my games. laugh

And as for Samuel Gordon (mind, I'm only in the second chapter), I did notice his arrogance and got a little surprised and angry at his yelling at Henry and Morris, but I was thinking they're just trying to set us up for realizing he has some anger problems or something (associated with his headaches, I dunno), since he did ask himself at one point why he had yelled at Morris. Just my thought, but I haven't finished the game. laugh

Absolutely a TIE, imho, between Henry Stauf (7th Guest) and Fluffy Fluffy Bun Bun (Toonstruck). BOTH of those characters actually kept me from finishing the games. I would just get way too annoyed each time I either heard their voices or their sarcastic and biting comments. ICK!

Kristi (sp?), Kate's fiance was Dan, and yeah, I though he was a jerk too. I was thinking, "what a WHINER!"..Also, Zack from The Longest Journey was an idiot. He thought he was all that...PAH!

Oh thanx, Tsavorite! Dan, that's right...yeah, he was pretty annoying. Kate's much better off without him. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

Winslow in Black Dailia was smug and annoying, but we do get to see him get his later, but YES! Kate's fiance Dan! I yelled at the screen more than once "Would you please throw that d*** cellphone down a hole somewhere!" He obviously gets free long distance

AGREED! For one, I got tired of going around with a flashlight, but the precipitating annoyance was that, after trying for quite a while, I still hadn't solved that Knights problem on the truncated chess board. That plus the fact that I had quite enough of Stauf in 7th GUEST caused me to put it aside. Who knows, if I get desperate I might take it up again, but I'm going to have to get pretty desperate. laugh

That suggests an idea. Adventure games don't have the same expansions as do RPGs (I can only think of realMyst with its Rime Age.)

How about Adventure expansions where you can choose the game character of your choice and have them dunked in a vat of baked beans, or sent to a Trappist monastery, or given rocket powered roller skates as a reward for finishing the game? There's not enough imagination around nowadays.

Mir Yannick, the Grand Inquisitor"Iam the boss of you!" got so sick of hearing that I could have screamed. (probably has to do with my dislike of authority figures) rolleyes
I also liked Arthur in Journeyman 2&3. He added great humor to the game IMO. thumbsup
This isn't an AG, but Winston, the butler in Tombraider 2 that pops up sometimes just about drove me crazy with his rattling glasses and tray. I shut him in the bathroom in Nightmare in Vegas. laugh

ooMiFoo,
I didn't hate Stauf, except when I was lost in the maze the first time. Feeling looooooooonly? Once would have been enough, but not every time I came to a dead end. eek

Having finished The Black Mirror I have to go even more strongly with Samuel Gordon. Could elaborate my reasons but would amount to spoilers. All of you who who completed the game know where I'm coming from. I think dispicable could be added to just obnoxious. Fantastic ending !!! You agree
