Just a variation on some of the threads I've seen lately...

I'm not talking about mainstream game sites not liking the games. (Gamespot's and IGN's opinion doesn't count here.) I'm talking about games that seem to be disliked by most fellow adventure gamers.

Nor am I talking about games that a handful of gamers hated (every game has someone somewhere that doesn't like it), or games you didn't think were all that bad.

I want the ones you really got a kick out of playing (even if it was only to laugh at inappropriate times).

My entries in the "Games I enjoyed that most people hated" are

Mystery of the Druids
Conspiracies

...and I'm sure I'll think of a few more.

I'll have to add my name to those who enjoyed Conspiracies in fact I'm still wondering what the status on the sequel is.

Hmmm, time to google again.

Another one who enjoyed Conspiracies, and who's also wondering what's up with the sequel.

I also enjoyed Watchmaker, which a lot of people seemed to not like.

I also love both Arthur's Knights (Very much) and "The Moment of Silence". Keepsake? There are people that did not like Keepsake? I loved Keepsake. A Q.weekend in Capri was a favorite of mine that others hated,

I'd need some sort of list of "most hated games" before I could respond to this; I know what reviewers have hated, and my favorite game among that group is Temujin. But players? I don't know.

Perhaps someone should start a thread on that subject. I won't start a new thread, though. I'm not worthy.

Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek
Black Dahlia (which I still have yet to finish)
Dead Reefs (who could resist a Johnny Depp look a like?)
A Quiet Weekend in Capri(Are you kidding me? I ran down to the local Walmart at 2 am just to find some fresh Mozzazella to make an Insalata Caprese while playing the game!)

The current "worst games" thread is a place to start. See what shows up a lot in there.

Those asking about Conspiracies II -- there are postings by the development team at the Adventure Europe Developers Conference 2007 here.

Ray -- you are worthy. Do you believe me? grin There's a way to prove it.

"Temujin" would get my vote for this.

Some of the games people are listing ("Black Dahlia" is an example) I would have said were generally highly rated. No one has admitted to liking something like "Adventure at the Chateau D'Or" say. Knowing which games most other Adventure gamers hated is not easy. Easier from something like the Twisty List to guess which ones most loved.

Simon the sorcerer 3d. Loved it, was wacky fun and not that hard cos of the action bits, the gfx were humerously low poly which was really low poly which was contradicting the other 3d games where they all were competing for most polys and looks where simon 3d took the oposite. I duno if its true but i like to think that the makers made it look [blip] on purpose.

Graphics aside, the game was fun, the story was interesting, the characters were fun to interact with. The ending was the cleverest ending in any game ever to complete the game.

I wouldn't say that Moment of Silence is a hated game, I've read many supportive posts regarding it quite recently. At any rate, it's one of my favourites. smile

I also had a great time with Carte Blanche, a game which made me laugh a whole lot. Not many fans here at GameBoomers, though, alas, alack. razz to you all!

A good way to at least get an indication if a lot of people liked (or didn't like) a game is to take a look at the GameBoomers' List of favorite games. This list was voted on and compiled in June 2007, so it doesn't reflect games that were released after that.

If a game appears high on the list -- like The Moment of Silence, which came in at #20 -- it's a safe bet that it isn't a game that most people hated. grin If the game is barely mentioned, there's a greater chance that people didn't like it -- though it also might be a game that is so new that hardly anyone played it, or it may be a game that is so obscure that hardly anyone can find it.

I think I will have to nominate Forever Worlds! The first time I started playing it I thought it was one of the worst games ever, but I couldn't finish it because my PC at the time didn't have anough memory. As soon as I got a new one I replayed it as I just had to find out where it went in the end! It was interesting enough to pursue although I have never quite fathomed it out! For me the game comes across as being quite well constructed, the puzzles aren't bad but just seems to function on a different plane of thought to most of us i.e. loopyland! lol

I liked those too, though they were a lot better on story than on gameplay. I remember Bradwen had an awful problem with doors.

I was always surprised that more people didn't like Starship Titanic, still my favorite game of all time. The Adams/Python humor with bots gone wrong, insane parrot, and touchy bomb still make me grin after several replays. To some, it was torture. To me, it was a hoot and a half! (Methinks it's time for another replay.)
