You know you have played too many adventure games when...You sit at your computer, with a cold cup of coffee, trying to figure out "which" Adventure games Lasanidine was talking about!! :-) Glynn

-When you go to the store and automatically start searching for that hard to find item you've been looking for in your current game.

I have done this more than once and had to remind myself, "Oh yeah, that was in the game and this is real life."

What a great thread this is.... lol

I can relate to that APL. wink I heard some music on TV the other day and I still can't remember what game it's from. I think maybe the 2nd floor of Shivers. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" />

Good idea OZ. Maybe when it scrolls off the page we could move it to the archives. <img border="0" alt="[winky]" title="" src="graemlins/winky.gif" />

...when you look up something in the world atlas and the words "Amazon" and "Siberia" look wrong to you.

When you read the word "game," you assume it's for computers (not console or board or card).

When you read a game title that's unfamiliar, you immediately google for reviews - hoping it's an adventure that you've (somehow) missed.

You know you've been playing too much when you find yourself clicking on the remote control to make characters in a movie move faster, talk to other characters or to escape boring cut scenes.

You know you've been playing adventure games to long when:

You talk to EVERYONE you meet and continue to talk to them until they start to repeat themselves. laugh

You know you're playing too amny av. games when you fing yourself looking on the ground carfully where ever you go lookng for things that may be usefull later on, even a gum wrapper or dog tag and hearing a voice in your head saying (I don't think that will be useful or necessary).

All the gaming best to all!!!,
Bill

...you cringe when opening doors, fearful that something is there, or you won't be able to just walk through.

...you expect something to open every time the clerk scarns an item you're buying.

- When you look through the real estate ads for a small white house with a mailbox in front that you can see when facing E.

- When you are afraid your wife will walk in and and catch you at the computer looking at . . . a Nancy Drew adventure!

Well, RIVEN and a few other games made it almost automatic for me to close and look back whenever I open and go through a door. laugh laugh laugh

When you look at the dust and disarray of your home and think
1. "oooo, atmosphere!"
2. "oooo, I need to explore this! Something might be under there!"
When you start cleaning out a closet and think of it as an adventure
When you find something in that closet that reminds you of something in another room so you go see if it works....and don't finish your closet!
