Hi Boomers...

I have played many adventure games though out years as I am sure you all have....

I would be interested to know.. What One game only stayed in your mind.

There are so many Good games we all played, but just one actually made me all crazy, and couldn't wait to see what happened next...

It was... Sanitarium.

I was sitting here thinking how I wish there was a Sanitarium 2.. hearts

Thanks, for your post...

Oh, tough question! Most memorable adventure game? I guess I'd have to choose from the Myst series, probably Uru Complete Chronicles.

After playing Uru, I bought the book, The Myst Reader by Rand & Robyn Miller with David Wingrove, and I made laminated bookmarks from Myst screenshots. I also visited the D'Ni community game online a few times and am still thinking of going back ...

For me, it's a tie between Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within and The Lost Crown. Please don't make me choose between the two. shame grin

Well, if I had to pick only one, it would be The Longest Journey. It combines a science fiction world and a fantasy world and does so believably, has my favorite lead character in any game, excellent supporting cast and is just very rich and detailed in all aspects. I'm playing it again in anticipation of Dreamfall Chapters, and it is blowing me away all over again.

However, I can't let this go without listing my other favorites - Culpa Innata, the entire GK series, Grim Fandango, Dreamfall, The Lost Crown, Gray Matter and most recently, The Walking Dead. Okay, I guess that's cheating just a little bit. grin I tend to favor strong story or "novel like" games. yes

So difficult to choose! But I'm with Venus, it has to be The Longest Journey. Such a rich atmosphere, deeply crafted story, terrific voice acting, great puzzles that never got in the way of the flow of the game. I really felt like I was a part of the story. And it had the most infamous puzzle of any game!

There isn't any one game.
When I first started playing, every game I played stayed in my mind, starting with Myst and stomping around Channelwood.
Then Shivers with its weirdly intense colors and strangely eerie music.
Byzantine with its real life Mosque and cistern and computer generated views of how they looked in the past.
Drowned God with its sad story and creepy oppressiveness.
Obsidian with its Magritte-like gameworld -- the workers with computer monitors for heads, the room where you had to walk up and down the walls and ceiling, the wave puzzle, the spider puzzle...
Ripper with its weird puzzles inside a computer and an over-the-top performance by Christopher Walken.
The rat catcher in Atlantis -- a strange respite from being killed or captured by guards every time you turned around.
Atlantis 2 with the Irish horse, the blue guy in the sky, and the dragon swimming around the aquarium.
9: The Last Resort with its weirdly colorful gameworld, featuring Aerosmith members as giant twin worms and Cher a-moanin'-and-a-groanin' every time you saved your game.
Armed and Delirious with it's giant toilet, marching rocks, and flying washing machine.
That strangely atypical moment in Ark of Time where
Click to reveal..
your character stops being a jerk for once as he reads about the sad fates of the members of Atlantis who'd been travelling abroad when it blew, and were stranded in primitive cultures.

Liryl the lonely guardian in Lighthouse.
Learning about the wharks in Riven.
The enormous living ships in Schizm.
The fairytale-like night garden of Brada Coe in Schizm 2.
The music in the lighthouse, the sound of the ancient computer booting up, and the strange animals in Amerzone.
Following the vines and their glowing seed pods in Edanna in Myst III: Exile.
The story in Moment of Silence, and how it makes you wonder about how easy it is to manipulate and erase digital versions of things in real life.

And two of the best were Morpheus and Faust: 7 Games of the Soul, which spawned some great discussion posts about hidden meanings, ***one*** of which is archived. Unfortunately the Morpheus thread was lost.

I've enjoyed a lot of games but there is only one that has ever made me tear up when it was at an end, only one that I wanted to go on and on and on. But when you reach your destination on the No. 9, your troubles and your game are over.

Just as well. No one can ever make a sequel that inevitably wouldn't measure up.

It's more like a series of games that I favor equally for their unique stlye, story and atmosphere. The Myst games, Syberia games and the Tomb Raider games! All different but all fun to play.

I'm with you, Darlene.
Sanitarium was such a unique game...there's really not another quite like it. It told a story... a nightmarish tale with surreal characters. So, it gets my vote.

Cheating by throwing in The Neverhood as another stand out one of a kind game.

It is hard for me to choose. Sorry I can't pick just one.

Most of Sherlock Holmes games
Dracula Origin
Most of Secret Files games
Black Mirror games
Syberia games
Memento Mori
Most Agatha Christie games
Most of Art of Murder games
Most of Chronicles of Mystery games
Still Life games
NiBiRu

They are all special in there own way. I played many other games that I enjoyed, but those ones stick out in my mind the most.

that is a hard one. I have so many that have stayed with me and I have loved. But, I guess if I had to pick JUST ONE, it would have to be gabriel knight 2. I still love that game, and now I probably like GK1 even more, but, that is the game I couldn't get out of my head while I was playing it, and I still enjoy playing it today. but, as I say, that is a hard one to answer.

Great question and a tough one. I've played dozens of great games, and while I tell people that The Lost Crown is my favorite game...

...the one that stays in my mind after all these years is the first game I ever played and still love to revisit occasionally and that is Riven.

Funnily enough traveller, I had got hooked on 'Sega Mega' games before that & a few PS1 games that were entertaining but um...brainless! I ended up with BS1 in a charity compilation after that, tried it & thought that there was too much talking & 'dismissed it'! I didn't have anything else to play a few months later so loaded it up & persisted with it to discover such a wonderful story & game. I've since then just wanted more of the same - it took me 2 years to find BS2 on PS1 - way before I had access to a PC from 2000 onwards & was so unaware of the many games available for PC at the time.
BS1 was the game that was responsible for me becoming a complete BAAGer! lol

"BS1 was the game that was responsible for me becoming a complete BAAGer! lol"


chrissie, I had never played much of anything but the original Kwazi's Quest Mahjong (which was pretty good, btw, except for those dumb poems), when I ran across a demo for Grim Fandango on CNet. Fifty megabytes and it took me an entire day to download it on dialup. Those were NOT the good old days. grin

Fantastic story, great characters, wonderful voice acting, beautiful graphics, music that's perfectly suited to the game...any more superlatives I can stick in there? I had to have the game and got one of the last copies Lucas Arts sold, I think. Fifteen bucks in a jewel case, then the game disappeared from their site.

See, Lucas Arts? See what happens when you ignore Grim? You get swallowed by Disney! Ha!

Gil,
I remember seeing a text adventure way back in the 70's but never played it myself. My first was one of the early King's Quest games which really set the standard for the time. I have fond and frustrating memories of those games. I chose Syberia earlier and still choose it but the King's Quest/Space Quest games are memorable in their own way to me.

Hmmmm, well for the nostalgic "favorite one" then I have to list the game that started me down the adventure trail which was King's Quest.

However, if I'm being honest my overall favorite, if I absolutely have to pick one (as has been written here often) would have to be The Longest Journey.

Thanks, Looney. One of my favorite things about games is how you can explore exotic virtual worlds. Also I tend to remember scenes from the games I played fairly early on better than those I played more recently. For example there was one game I played a couple of years ago where all I remember is the scene where you're tied up in a chair and you have to scoot your chair around in the right order. That was not one of my favorites.

Hi, fellow Boomers,
There are so many great games I've played throughout the years. It's so hard to pick just ONE. I've loved practically every game mentioned in this thread Each time I replay one of them, it becomes my "favorite". I also played and loved all of the "Leisure Suit Larry" games. I laughed as Larry always tried to "get the girls", but was never able to. It was SO much fun. I almost felt sorry for poor Larry. HAPPY GAMING!

Hi, sanford

Is it safe to say your favorite is Leisure Suit Larry? Sounds like it was a fun game for you...

Hi Dar,
I wouldn't say it was my favorite, but it had not been mentioned in this thread, so I thought I would just put it out here to find out if any other of our Boomers had an opinion of it-----and YES, I did find it funny to watch and play the "shenanigans" of poor little Larry who could never manage to "get the girl", and he tried SO hard to do that.

Sandy, my first game was Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards. I loved all the Larry games, and all of the other Sierra games. They got me started in gaming. wave

Hi Connie, It seems like you and I have had the same kind of gaming experiences. My first game was also a Sierra game. It was also an LSL game. Then I moved on to The Myst series and to the Gabriel Knight games, etc. I'm presently re-playing the DRACULA games I own.

As Jenny100 said, there are so many memorable moments in the great games we've played. If I had to choose only one, it would be Riven, perhaps because I've spent so many hours in that game world and have gone back to visit numerous times.

Dark Fall - The Journal.

But you're right. There's a special place in my heart for the first game I ever played - ND Treasure in the Royal Tower.

This is like the movie "The Highlander"...."There can be only 1"

Well OK. It's between April & Crow & Kate & Oscar but since you're forcing me to choose...

One game... ONE game?!?

Well... I guess the one that I spent the longest playing (partly because it had mazes which actually I hate in adventure games, and partly because this was in the days before the internet and online hints / walkthroughs), and that therefore sticks in my head very prominently, is the wonderful (apart from the mazes) Zak McKraken and the Alien Mindbenders.

At least the mazes weren't as horrible as the catacombs in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, which were so bad that the original game packaging included a map, and it was still confusing!!
