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.
I acted my age once. It was boring.

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!!
