My grandson asked what was the very first adventure game I ever played - after a lot of thought and looking through my bookcase of games I "think" it was The Dig that got me hooked and I,ve never looked back. I then wondered which game was the hook for others. think

The Dig also was my first game then it was The Longest Journey which really gave the bug for adventure games for me and has been non since.

For me it was King's Quest I. I recall playing all of the next games and remarking how great the sounds and graphics improve!!!

The very first adventure game I Played and that got me started just a bit over a year ago, was" Nancy Drew Message in a Haunted Mansion". Then I acquired her entire series and played most. I started to spread my wings a bit, then played "Return to Mysterious Island " which I loved , then I became addicted.rotfl
I absolutely hate keyboard games and no matter how good the game sounds, will always PASS on them. I love the simple point and click games and there was a lot to choose from , especially some of the oldies. Then, onto some of the darkside.
Sorry for getting a bit long winded. rotfl

Kings Quest was a wonderful series. What ever happened to Roberta Williams? What a visionary that lady was. Making all those great games when computors were seen as a male business.

blush Many years ago my wife, against my wishes, bought an HP computer. At that time I was fairly sure that these devices were tools of the devil. (I may may still be correct there!) At any rate, MYST was bundled on the computer along with a bunch of other programs. After hundreds of games, dozens of reviews, and thousands (Sigh) of dollars, I'm still playing games and still love MYST and all of its clones.

Much like Haze, many years ago, it must have been 15-14 yrs ago, a friend of mine loaned me a game that had just been released, called "Myst"..she insisted I play it (I had a top of the line IBM clone at the time - I think it only had an 860mb hard drive which was considered huge), and I was hooked! Been playing adventure games on a regular basis ever since!!!!

My sister gave me her copy of Myst (when it first came out), since she couldn't get into it. I loved it then, I love it now, and have played tons of games since then!

Well, I was trying to get my sister to play console games with me, and she was trying to get me to play PC games with her.

We played Amerzone together and I loved it. Then Black Mirror, and then Dark Fall. That's all it took. She stopped playing and I decided I had to play enough for both of us wink puppy

I also started with Myst and was hooked on adventure games. It still is one of my favorite games.
