Evidently not a lot of people ever played Koala Lumpur. There was a game stopper (for me) arcade sequence in the game that I never could get a save game for and the solutions were of no help. I checked a few boards and there were a lot of people in my boat.

Anyway, that game tops my list of worst.
I also could not get into or finish Mysterious Journey so it is also right up there at the top of my worst list as well.

Forever Worlds was the only adventure game in my life that I didn't finish.
I always try to finish a game (or a book) even if I don't like it, just hoping that will get better at some point.
With Forever Worlds I just couldn't carry on, was ugly, boring, pointless! sleep

I am now so glad that my copy of Conspiracies would never install properly so I never did get to play it - hooray! smile

Martin Mystere was absolutely awful. Bad voice acting,voice changed to text only,in mid sentence, for no good reason. Nice locations and reasonable story but voice acting even worse than Watchmaker just set my teeth on edge through the whole game.

Conspiracies..hands down! Forever Worlds was bad, but it was entertaining at parts.

While I agree that Conspiracies & FW were both reallllly baaaad games. My vote goes to The Quivering. Yuck! What a horrible save system. Made me feel too guilty to save. lol

(You had to kill a cute little monster every time in order to save! cry )

An honorable mention to Of Light And Darkness for the most boring, yet panicky game. One giant timed sequence of repetitive orb filing.

What about THE SCROLL!!!! scared

laugh Love, Jen laugh

Hey Jen -- being bored while in a panic must have been a unique experience. Can you still remember the feeling? laugh

Wow--everybody's so down on Conspiracies.... laugh I really had fun with that game. And CBSection, how could you hate The Watchmaker? I really enjoyed that one too!!

Never did get around to playing Forever Worlds...

My vote for the worst game is probably Cold Case Files. It was such an awful game that I totally forgot about it until Pollo Diablo mentioned it. lol The second runner up for worst game in my book would be Legacy Dark Shadows. That game just was pretty bad.

Well, thanks to GBs I have avoided many of the front runners here. The one game I never finished due to utter boredom was Traitor's Gate (tho' I've had Voyage loaded up and partially played for almost a month now and haven't gone back to it since the first session... looks like we have a runner up!)

Dawn, what happened to your Spike avatar??

Forever Worlds! Never before or since did I have to jump through such hoops to get a game to play. I only was able to finish it it because Mr. Lipid provided me with not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 saved games. I couldn't get rid of the game fast enough.

I'm trying to figure out how I was lucky enough to avoid the infamous "Forever Worlds" if it was worse than "Conspiracies" and "Missing Since January" smile !

One other game I'd like to nominate for the list is "The Omega Stone". Hated it!

I agree with ShadowinmyRoom and Maggie, I just don't see the appeal of the myst series, riven etc.

Forever Worlds has a close competitor for worst game ever: Titanic-Dare to Discover (not to be confused with Titanic-Adventure Out Of Time). You see it on Ebay now & then. It could be described as a Myst clone created circa 1998 somewhere in Europe on a budget of what must have been around $20 or so. It really has nothing to with the Titanic and the closest you come to the Titanic itself is the picture on the jewel box. The graphics are putrid, the music nauseating and there are so few individual screen shots/pictures that if you are 100 yards from a building, one click will put you inside it. That results in you're being able to move nice and quick from where you are to where you weren't, it's just that you happened to pass by everywhere you wanted to be in the process!

(One tiny request: Since the thread is entitled 'Worst Adventures' as opposed to 'My Least Favorite Adventures', I hope people will keep that in mind eg. Myst may be your least favorite AG, but that doesn't make it the 'worst' AG!) smile

Hey WW wave

I put Spikey away for awhile. I had to give Horatio Caine his turn, since CSI Miami is back on now. laugh There's just something about that guy, and I don't know what it is, cos it ain't his looks!!! lol
