The worst game made would have to be hands down & forever, Forever Worlds. What a ripoff!

And I LOVED Conspiracies! Go figure! Had me laughing at some of the antics in it, especially the bra bomb and climbing the fallen light pole then falling off and through the pavement below, quite a view of the sky/stars from under the tarmac! It is a keeper for me and one I will play again, looking forward to the sequel....."to each his own" laugh
Love, Betty Lou :kiss:

Wow, I never knew it won awards. I guess my opinion is different than most. think

What bothered me most was - as you stated - the voice acting. It was the only game I had to ever quit playing because it was so awful.

Maybe I should give it a second shot. smile

I thought Watchmaker was a good game too. The voice acting left something to be desired but wasn't worse than some other games I've played. It has an interesting story and great graphics. I think you should give it another shot, CB. smile

For me, it was "Missing", and the title is just how I felt about it.

It was missing everything that I enjoy in adventure games. LOU sleep

Am I the only one that hated "Black Dahlia"? It never seemed to work right & the puzzles were beyond my attention span. I still have it if anyone wants it.

Man , I can't remember the name of that thing , but I hated it . Maybe someone can help me out here .

Your character is a student ( MIT I think ) and he has to rescue this girl from these mafia guys and she leads him on a quest for some artifact having to do with her father who was murdered by the mafia in the opening scene . There was this puzzle that involved turning lipsticks into bullets and....that's where I had to bail..... think

I'm going to go out on a limb here with Blown Away. It was supposedly based on a movie of the same name. Anyway, the game promised to be challenging with puzzles that changed. I barely got through the first few scenes.

It's packed away in a box up in the attic somewhere. . . . .

Robert -- I think you are referring to Runaway. lol It does take awhile to get used to the game's wacky charm.

A Quiet Weekend in Capri was the worst game for me. It was boring with very little plot. More like a travel log of pictures. sleep

It is so great to get such a variety of tastes on GameBoomers. Viva le differance! Or, however you spell in French.
Intersting because I really liked Simon, The Watchmaker, and LOVED Capri. thumbsup

I would have to chose Conspiracies because I lasted just 10 or 15 minutes (two tries) into this game and shelved it.

There is another game which I can't remember the name of. Had something to do with the word Night in the title. Was extremely short, didn't seem to be going anywhere and was supposed to be a forerunner to another game. Don't think a whole lot of people played it but remember reading bad comments about it on GameBoomers.

I wasn't Nightlong was it? I played it twice and don't remember a lot about it but it must have been interesting enough to hold my attention, it is on my keeper shelf in the closet......
Love, Betty Lou
