I know this must be hard to even think about bad adventure games, but cmon there must be something like that. I haven't played Simon 3D but after all rewiews and stuff i have been reading about it, i say
it's the worst. mad

This kind of question crops up from time to time, and begs the further question, if you mean what was disliked or what was put together in a jumble. I really enjoyed Simon 3D, and it was well crafted. Worst for me is no contest - I'll name Fork in the Tale every time. laugh

I am sure I played Simon 3D but the ole memory slips a bit now and then, I think I liked it. For a LOT of us here on GB the "worst game" was Forever Worlds, didn't seem to make much sense and many of us played it all the way thru then said "HUH?" think laugh woozy -

For me, it would have to be Conspiracies, no contest. Grainy FMV... awful garish & blocky graphics... incomprehensible "puzzles"... ouch, it was almost painful to play the dratted game. So I didn't; I uninstalled it. It's now gathering dust in a corner. An almighty pox on it! lol

I Loved all the Simon games, and I found Simon 3D to be as enjoyable and hilarious (more so) as the others...OK!...there is one annoying, impossible (in my case) timed sequence, and some arcade puzzles in it...but I will always be grateful to Simon 3D...for helping me to find my way to Gameboomers!!!...Rock on, Simon! happydance bravo

Can't wait for Simon 4. bravo

I haven't played Forever Worlds...so I may have escaped the 'worst' adventure game. lol

I think I nominated Conspiracies last time this subject came up - I think Rushes has said it all! - but I had forgotton about Forever Worlds -for me that is No 1! Followed by in no particular order: Conspiracies (but I might finish that one day to find out the ending!), Adventures of the Chateau D'Or and more recently The Forgotton which was obviously intended to have some sequels - it was quite enjoyable but very badly put together! and very annoying to play!

But CBSection The Watchmaker won awards! - I don't know who decided this but I enjoyed the game - I thought the story was reasonable - but swapping inventory items when your 'miles' apart just isn't logical (that did happen didn't it? - it was a long time ago I played!) - also the voice acting as I remember was awful - especially the wife! I do remember starting this game and thinking whoever made this hasn't quite got the hang of making adventure games - but I did like it in the end but didn't think it was worthy of any awards!

Forever Worlds. I never felt so ripped off with a purchase before.

The Forgotten. Another rip off, one hour game for $20 that never amounted to anything.

Tac should issue out a free game coupons for anyone who provides proof of purchase for those two games.

Forever Worlds. Ugh. That game really turned me off. Our luck someone will come out with a sequel.... Generally I am pretty tolerant of games but this one came to near impossible to like.

Forever Worlds was a train wreck. I just bought another game on eBay that has one of the worst reputations ever: The Scroll. lol And I blame my purchase on Syd. wink Will The Scroll be worse than Forever Worlds? I guess I'll find out. laugh

Hi, everyone!

If we're talking about the game we hated the most, I can't decide between "Conspiracies" and "Missing", so I'll declare it a tie lol !

I agree with everything Rushes said about "Conspiracies" (I also uninstalled it halfway through), and "Missing" was nothing more than a series of annoying arcade puzzles with a few videos thrown in for good measure. I was really looking forward to playing both of them, and ended up being extremely disappointed.

Oh yes! How could I have forgotten about Missing? I was never able to play that one for too long once it was apparent that the game was pretty much a series of arcade games. frown

Never did play Conspiracies. Looks like that's a good thing too! lol
