see ? everyone's taste is different ! and so are the puzzles we like - runaway was a good one for off the wall stuff ,yet i played it almost non - stop. tlj was a chore for me to finish - maybe it depends on where our "heads" are when we are playing a game ?? agree about patience for sure !

Hey, don't get me wrong. I loved TLJ! I just felt that the theatre section was a bit silly, that's all.

That is why call them Adventure Games they want you to have challenges to complete puzzles, and make you think what can I do next to get this to level of the game. I have played some time sequences puzzles that would drive any sane person up the wall and had a couple puzzles that I have played for days before I got it. Then think of all the stupid things I tried to get it right. And when it works it is such a pleasure. It they where too easy your game time would be short. Besides I think writers love to challenge players to see what they can do to make us really go crazy.

I'm playing one of those frustrating games now, Scratches. Absolutely nothing that should work to solve the puzzles seems to. I like the puzzles that you have to do a million things to solve them better than the puzzles where you don't even get a clue as to what to do next. I guess it's one of the reasons I like third person games. Wamdering around the same place endlessly in silence is not for me.

I always felt like a solution would come to me in TLJ or in Runaway for that matter, but this game reminds me of the myst games only with a smaller territory to cover. I could use a game mate on this one. lol

I just love playing pc games. Even the frustrating ones have redeeming qualities because they are a challange and they are a new experience.
The object of any game for me is the pleasure and fun of taking me into a fanatsy or magical or spooky environment that challanges my mind and spirit! I do it to have fun and be entertained! wave smile smile wave

You observe what you do to get one number to change, to get two numbers to change, etc. Where wasn't it logical?
Remember, this was my first game and each time you pulled one chain and let go the numbers shifted by one so I expected the second chain to finish accessing the correct numbers the same way. When you pulled the second chain they did the same thing and it was impossible to get the proper set of numbers to come up; you had to pull and hold the second chain till the right numbers appeared. That might have seemed logical to some but it didn't to me at the time. laugh

This is a fun discussion, but it's getting specific about the solution to puzzles in some games, so I've added a "Possible Spoiler" warning to the title of the thread. smile

It seems to me that the "Complaint about adventure games" is actually the advantage of them. If you're looking for lightweight fun there are games like The Cameron Files available. If you have masochistic tendencies (As do most gamers at times) there are plenty of really difficult games to play. They can be happy, sad, realistic, or fantasy. I've often felt that the ability to find a game which matches your mood or intention is the reason adults play them.

Why do I get the feeling that honesty is being mislaid here? Like I have lots of patience, but sometimes it just runs out. I admit it! That's when a walkthrough can be a lifesaver. Some puzzles are hard to do even following a walkthrough. There was one puzzle that worked like Rubic's Cube (I think it was in NiBiRu) and following the walkthrough was really hard work. I did manage it in the end, but I surely could have done without it. The game itself was not the greatest, but it was okay and I was able to finish it, always a plus!
