Hi all,
I just wondered how many and what games you have that you are stalled on via a real tough puzzle or timed parts.

Still on my computer and stalled, Alantis Evolution, Missing, ND Secret of old Clock (out but will put back in again) just have to see the ending.

Playing Echo, Deleware St John II, and Aura in between time of going back and trying again.

Kudos to you for being able to do so many different games at once! Two are my limit, I think, and even that is pushing it! If I'm stuck on a puzzle I just keep trying and trying, because I'll lose interest if I leave it for another game.

I stopped playing Divided--I was enjoying it, but came upon a math based problem--not base 10--and was playing several other games at the same time and did not want to spend the time working it out.

One day perhaps I will go to it--when I am feeling math proficient laugh

I have so many 'stalled' games that I can probably win the prize for the biggest procrastinator. lol

Let's see: Silver Earring, Beyond Atlantis 2, Riddle MasterLu, UAKM, Escape from Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, Riven, Last Half Darkness, Sentinel, Safecracker, Temujin, Discworld 1, Titanic - all started but not finished.

Then there's the installed but not yet played: Reah, Chateau D'or. Just had to have a peak.

Currently playing Divine Divinity demo, Treasure Hunt Demo, MasterLu, Frankenstein and visit Magnetic, Xiama and Peter's Puzzles, Sims 2 - all the time for a break. Shadow of Destiny is also waiting to be replayed differently.

Aren't I terrible?! lol

Schizm on the bridge puzzle, but I plan on trying that again since I saw the help on that one..... Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban - flying the Hippogryff. Other than that, just major disappointment that I was not able to get The Sacred Amulet to run beyond the opening sequence despite all efforts - it looked good too.

I don't have any stalled games on my puter'...I only play one game at a time, or I lose my concentration and immersion in the game...the only exception is when two game install together from one DVD. lol

Hey Melanie,
Good to hear from you. I don't feel so bad I'm at least in good company. I didn't even mention Myst Uru. I have to be able to go to another game or book as stress is not allowed. Sooner or later I hope to get through. I have about four books going at the same time also. Histories, and such; and of course fun and games type. Schizm, took me about four months to get though and Schizm 2 (even with the walkthrough) another six months.

bravo That is the best example of why variety is such a wonderful thing! thumbsup

Dudemom, I was able to do 1/2 the bridge puzzle in Schizm, and DH did the other 1/2---

For math puzzles I don't have any answer except that sometimes solutions occur to you when you are stuck in traffic or at two in the morning, but I did notice first with American Macgee's Alice that the timed problems seem to get easier as you work at it. I don't know whether it is just because you are more familiar with the key strokes or what but, for the most part, if you keep at it they seem to fall into place eventually. On the other hand sliders which don't work should be eliminated. By force if necessry.

Long time back got 'stalled' with Nancy Drew Stay Tuned For Danger because of the timed sequence at the very end....then Nancy Drew (another game about same year) again a timed sequence.....have gone back and played those 2 again since I have 2-5 years under my belt playing these games and conquered them both and love them now.
(MYST) Uru-Path Of The Shell gave me Excedrin headache fits but went back and replayed it about 3 times to get past the "jump into the hologram" and am so addicted to it just have to pull it out and replay it now and again.
Stuck on and quit, sold/traded/gave away=Titanic An Adventure Out Of Time, Traitors Gate I. Stuck on The Key and would just delete it except I paid for it and might want to try it again, it is a download game not on CD. (Don't burn your bridges behind you?)
Others I cannot recall the names of that I might have been STUCK but finally finished them....I find that with more gaming experience and a several years under my belt that I get more stubborn about certain puzzles - like mazes and sliders, and can conquer them if I just don't give up once and for all.....what a great feeling when I do succeed! laugh
Love, Betty Lou

Hi Charlotte! It's great to hear from you too. I'm also glad I'm not the only one. lol It seems we're in good company with quite a few others. Pib you sound like you might be as bad as me. smile I also have 3 books going right now. Variety is the spice of life, they say.

Nightowl, you have so much to look forward to! smile You'll have so many great games waiting for you when you're ready. Lucky you! I also have a stack of unplayed at all games waiting. I can't wait to get to some of them but have to finish most of these first. wave
