I liked Martin Mystere and am playing Dead Reefs at the moment.
I think Tunguska is a fine game, but I am also one of those
who disliked Druuna (still have it somewhere), tired)
if I do or do not finish a game is not a reason for me to
consider it a good or bad one. Mostly it's me not
being patient enough. But I do have a dislike for games
with a lot of reading or conversation in it.

I also liked Barrow Hill a lot, although I agree more
could have been done with the mysterious surroundings and the petrol station was to dominant a location.

So many Differences ---

I disliked Martin Mystere for mostly tehnical reasons - I felt that the post production was sloppy.

I absolutely hated "The Scrolls" --Versailles II
and I'd rther get a root canal than finish Pathologic
Loved Dead Reefs and Barrow Hill is still one of my favorites.

The Case of the Silver Earring comes out top for me. Not for the dreaded time sequences etc, or for the dodgy coding that made Holmes walk with the gate of a mechanical robot with a couple of screws missing, and the continuity bloopers at least gave me a laugh but it was the stupefying boredom of the game that pushed it to the top of my list.
Did I finish it? No; I simply couldn’t afford the loss of that amount of adrenalin.

I'm with you all the way on that one, Carousal. Once I had three seemingly identical samples of 'black powder' in my inventory, and couldn't tell them apart, that was enough to tell me the 'designers' couldn't design their way out of a paper bag. Gave up about an hour after the start.

And people have to ask what's *wrong* with adventure game 'design' nowadays?! Hmph. Don't get me started. It's all eye candy and little else... except from the occasional team that actually *understands how to design puzzles*, like Telltale Games.

I know I am going to get a lynching for this one - but I am half way through Nancy Drew - White Wolf of Icicle Creek & as entertaining as it is in parts I truly think it is a bad game! What annoys me more than anything that this is a popular series selling on the back of a huge fan base. mad

I agree with whoever mentioned Penumbra Overture earlier in this thread. That game was incredibly boring for me; I was so disappointed.

But I know that one's not really a conventional adventure game. As for the more conventional ones, I'm not sure there's any a actually hate or dislike. The closest might be Black Mirror. And that's more just a case of being diappointed once I finally played it (earlier this year). So many people rave about it, it winds up being on lots of peoples Best Of lists here on this board even, but I just don't get it. Makes me feel like I'm missing something since so many people like it, but I thought it was pretty dull -- too much running around, weird inventory puzzles, so-so voice acting, etc. The story itself & some of the visuals was the only thing that saved it for me.

Hi, this was a truly great idea. Kudos to all of you. I have learned a few games to stay away from, some that I have been trying to get. It was interesting to read comments pro and con on a lot of games, and some I agreed with and some not. In the eye of the beholder I guess. But I have enjoyed this post as no other. I have a couple of hightly touted games, Morpheus, Drowned God and The Black Dahlia for example that I wouldn't call the "worst" but I wouldn't care to replay them or any sequel for that matter. I tend to agree with the poster who liked cartoon figure games. I just finished Runaway 2 and it was a hoot. Can't wait for the obivious Runaway 3. Duckman is another that I found enjoyable. My worst, definately Space Quest IV. Way to little time to complete some tasks. Closely behind, both of the new style Nancy Drew games and any game that has you going back and forth, back and forth for no reason but to occupy time. Cheers and HNY, Sky!!

I think I see the clue,
but is it one, or is it two?
I'll just move this one here,
dang the answer isn't clear!
Oh geeez now what do I do?
