(For non-UK members.......BBC Radio 4 has a programme called Desert Island Discs in which a well-known person is invited to select 10 records they would like to have with them were they trapped on a desert island for a long but indefinite period. They are also allowed 2 books - The Bible and the complete works of Shakespeare).
Here's the scenario - you are trapped on a desert island. You have a computer (with an array of solar panels to power it) but no
internet connection. You have a restore disc for your operating system and a DVD full of necessary patches, along with an archive of the Gameboomers walkthroughs and helpful postings. Which 10 games would you want to have with you? They don't all have to be Adventure Games, but - lacking an internet connection - they cannot be online games. And which 2 books, if any?
The Broken Sword Series (all 4)
Lego Star Wars (the silliest game ever devised)
Frozen Bubble (not an Adventure Game but great fun and totally addictive - check it out here
Books would have to be Roger Penrose's "The Road to Reality" (I might even finish it!) and Gilbert Sinoue's "Avicenne ou la route d'ispahan" (my all-time favourite read.
How about you?
A Bright, Blessed and very,very,Happy New Year to one and all
