I know folks have asked about lists of top 10 games, etc...but the Nancy Drew games have quite a following. So which of them is your favorite and why? think

I've enjoyed a number of them...including this last one, Crystal Skull, but I think I will always hold a fondness for "Message in a Haunted Mansion" because it was the very first Nancy Drew game I played...and it was just sleuthing...plain and simple. thumbsup

How about the rest of the Boomer clan?

Probably my favorite is Ghost Dogs, because I liked finding the speakeasy in the basement and uncovering the history of it.
I also liked Blackmoor Manor because I liked exploring the mansion and finding the secret passages.
And I liked Secret of the Old Clock because it took place in the past, around the time Nancy Drew books first came out. It could have been done better. I don't think they put as much effort into it as they have with some of the other games. But I had fun with it and I enjoyed the amusing references to children's literature.

My favorite's definitely Curse of Blackmoor Manor. Loved the puzzles. Thought it had fairly challenging puzzles, but they could still be reasoned out with the clues given, and they fit in well with the story.

Liked the story and atmosphere too. Probably the only Nancy Drew game I found genuinely spooky, even made me jump once or twice.

I also like Creature of Kapu Cave a lot (though I feel like I'm one of the only people who does). It has more replayability value then any other ND game, plus I'm crazy about doing the shell necklaces. For some reason I can seriously spend forever just wandering around looking for the shells to make necklaces. lol Can't explain it.

I'm at work so don't remember the exact name of my favorite game. It's the one with the parrot that you have to feed crackers too in order to get information. The one where the woman stays behind the curtain supposedly cause she could be turning into a werewolf.

That's Blackmoor. My favorite too. The puzzles, the atmosphere, the story - I thought it was put together really well.

My favorite is Message in a Haunted Mansion. It was chore free as far as I remember, the characters were engaging and the puzzles were good too. Second would be the one with the old theater that was going to be teared down, but the name of it escapes me at the moment.

I couldn't get through Ghost Dogs - doing mazes is my MAJOR weak spot.

My fave ND game is Curse of Blackmoor Manor - I just love the mansion and all the puzzles! This was such a great game for me - I haven't found any other ND game that comes close.

Hmmm...I think I'll load it up and start playing it again!! happydance
