Well, action9026... seems like you've opened yourself up for some of our suggestions. Here are mine:

I had fun in 'Sweden'... playing as Carol Reed, solving mysteries in "Hope Springs Eternal", "Remedy", & "Time Stand Still". The cartoon-y type games are lots of fun, too. "Tony Tough" comes to mind. Just had to chime in! wave

Action, you know what would dramatically increase your gaming choices? Consider purchasing a console of some kind. XBox 360, PS2 or 3, PSP, Gameboy DS, whatever. There's a huge amount of creativity going on in the console world right now.

Example: Kameo on the 360. This is an incredibly beautiful game set in a high fantasy environment. You play a young fairy girl who's trying to save her world from evil orcs. The cool gimmick of the game is that you learn to transform into ten different creatures, each of which has its own set of physical skills. So while the game is filled with combat (really fun combat) it's also tactical because you're constantly having to ask yourself: who do I turn into now? What will get me past this obstacle.

Then there's Okami for the PS2, one of the most beautiful games I've ever seen.

And let's not forget Resident Evil 4, now available on virtually all platforms. I don't even LIKE Resident Evil, but they completely reinvented the franchise with this game, and it's simply brilliant.

Well, one thing I can say for myself. I prefer point & click games. I absolutly HATE keyboard controls. When I'm looking for a game, I try to findout all I can about the controls, first, then the ratings. I like puzzles , but hate RPG's. I like being a detective, but hate inventory based puzzles.I think the game I did like the most this year playing even though I am going back on what I just said, is Return to Mysterious Island. It had a lot of inventory based games, but, they were tolerable and easy to do. The game had a great story, was fun, great graphics. I hate games termed as adventure games when they should be classed as action/adventure because I hate things you need to shoot, only because they are usually and I mean usually KEYBOARD CONTROL, which as stated earlier I HATE. I thought OH! everyone is buying or looking for Destination Treasure Island. Well, in I jumped both feet. Played part of it, Hated it, sold it.Now, I loved Dracula Resurrection & Dracula The Last Sanctuary.
Hence I have played a few more of the older games this year simply for that fact. POINT & CLICK like the good old days.

yes MAD " LIKE THE PAINTING PUZZLE> " LOL

I must admit that the title of this thread shocks me. I would never really argue with anyone here, but according to my list of "Games I must have" and to my credit card statements, there are lots of new game out there that I need. I'm slowly, but joyously, going broke just acquiring new ones.

Ellimay, I think we may be twins. I look for exactly what you do!

Ray... I do have the Xbox 360, and I really wished I would have done my research beforehand. There are really no games I want. I liked Viva Pinata for a while, and I bought Kameo, but it was to RPG-y for me. I have 'Indigo Prophecy' and I've only played it for about an hour. I think I shoulda got the Wii.

Ok that sounds weird. Wii.. get it?... ok I'm going to bed.

The only games I have actually played all the way thru lately are Secrets of Atlantis and Davinci. I got bored with Ankh, Al Emmo, Tunguska, and even a replay of Siberia! I have realized that my problem is that I don't like third-person games nearly as much as first-person!

I agree with you Haze. Even in games I find I don't particularly like, I am never bored and want to see what is around that next corner, just like real life. But that's just me, nothing against anyone that doesn't feel the same way.

I am enjoying the puzzle game Magicama. It isn't an adventure game-it is a series of puzzles but it is a nice break from the adventure games I have been playing. You can solve a few puzzles, then come back later and pick up right where you left off.

HI Action9026

I do love RPS's that is if they are point and click. But I must agree with you, I am not interested at all in sports games. I bough the Myst, Riven and and games like it and I was stuck. I have Divine Divinity in a case, started to play it again and I just get stuck everytime, so it is back in a case. Give me a good RPG or Adventure and I am happy. I also like ghost games, keeps me on my toes.

Have a Happy 4th of July everyone.

Maggie :USA: wave
