I think the reason why we do not like certain games are for many reasons. For me, Even though I thought the Myst games were beautiful, I just had too much trouble trying to get around in them, I don't know if that is real dislike or me. I have played part of Forever Worlds and the part I have played I like, but it is only such a small part. I can't quite figure out what makes a game in total that I love, except Postmortem, Syberia and Syberia 2, all the Dungeon Siege, The Black Mirror are those I really love. So I do not know the difference between those and Myst, I just know for myself it is too difficult and I gave up.

You don't know how many times I had that game in my hands - I'm glad I always put it back now smile

I hope it is not good old conspiracy you are talking about here...also known as KGB. Espionage, adventure, gathering clues, conspiracy theories left and right...what more could you ask for? I remember a friend of mine and me used to sit up late and play it when we were 12 or so...and you had to have a block of paper next to you, noting appointments, names and phone numbers.

Info about the game I am talking about...

I think it's important that we keep in mind when we say 'worst adventure game' that we differentiate between those we disliked or couldn't get into and those that are badly designed, glitchy, pointless games.

Whether or not you like games like Myst, (I'm not a fan of them myself) I think we do have to agree that they were well designed with beautiful graphics and a decent story. Definitely not in the same class as Forever Worlds or Conspiracies or the Stroll. smile

Oh, come on. Jazz & Faust was slow, some of the puzzles were irritating and the story didn't follow our earth morality, but the graphics were lovely and the 2-POV concept was quite interesting. I liked it fine.

Worst game ever is a big call. I am not sure I have played it yet.
Harvester would be way up the top of such a list. And The Scroll/Daughter of Serpents certainly was awful.

I think I'll still give it a play (after all, I did play and finish Myst *groan*)

I didn't "love" Jazz and Faust, but I did enjoy parts of it.
It was nowhere near the worst I've played.
Too bad the sea captain's voice acting was so bad.

Like I said, I'm weird anyway! lol Yes, it was too bad about the captain's voice acting. I was able to overlook it though.

I enjoyed Jazz & Faust in spite of the voice acting also, so count me as one of the weird ones. lol It was fun getting to play the game over from the other person's perspective.

I think that the worst adventure ever is Outcast 2.

I was dying to have it and then they cancelled it. frown

This also applies to other games I so much wanted to play and then they came with this "you will never lay your hands on it"

But now seriously, it's really sad what one sometimes finds as a "worst adventure ever" by gamers. Maybe some one room game with graphics made in painbrush (pun intended), illogical puzzles full of bugs and missing hotspots would have been, but many games mentioned are in fact pieces of love and hard work. So maybe the thread could have been called "The worst adventure I played" or "The adventure I never get into". Although I am not friend of this kind of political corectness, sometimes I find it very unfair to put such a harsh mean label to average or even decent games. frown

For me the game I that I would not play ever again was the Isle of Capri. I found it to be boring and without a real story. It was more of a travel log showing pictures of someone's trip to Capri. It was not at all what I expected. duh

Crystal Key 1 comes to mind. I am sure there are others that I thought were worse, but luckily my brain has blotted out the memory of them. I never played Forever Worlds, but from what I have heard, it is the worst ever: impossible to install and stupid to play.
I was not enchanted with A Quiet Weekend in Capri. The pics were beautiful, but there was just too much territory to cover. I never finished it, even with a walkthrough.
