Moment of silence and the lost crown are great games to play! My personal fav is the lost crown as it's set 10 miles away from me!

Thanks again for all your thoughts and well-wishes! I am pretty well set up now for next week and am anxious to start exploring. Hopefully it will divert my attention and keep my eyes off the wall clock. I can't believe how fast a day can go by under normal circumstances but how slowly it passes when you're just lying there and awake most of the time. I'm sure that going on these new adventures will help immensely.

I did take a look at one of the Carol Reed demos but must admit I'm not particularly fond of the photorealistic style. I like the fact that many of these games can take you away from the real world and put you into the surrealistic and highly imaginative worlds some of the authors have created. Maybe that's why I liked Myst so much and have searched for anything similar ever since. But, as they seem to be fairly highly regarded I should probably try one sometime. There are a lot of them to pick from!

And gruffy, that's so neat that you live near the town used for 'The Lost Crown'! I did take a quick look at 'The Making Of' and it looks like a cool place. I'll probably read through it in more detail before I start the game (I did print out the map already though). Surely you have been there and done some exploring!

Well, all for now. With any luck the days ahead may be more like small vacations to far-away lands with many interesting people to meet and mysteries to solve!

Venus suggestions are the same as mine, except Runaway and Perry Rhodan which I never played.

Culpa Innata and The Lost Crown. Very close behind would be Cognition, The Moment of Silence, Overclocked

I would add Sinking Island, Nostradamus and Secret of Da Vinci.

You might also wish to consider the Agatha Christie series, at least And then there were none.

My top recommendations are Culpa Innata and Moment of Silence.

Have fun in hospital!

Note: Overclocked would be rather appropriate, it takes place in a hospital filled with patients who ended up there after playing too many video games wink

CNO, Myst is such a wonderful you might consider replaying it while in Hospital. I've replayed it a few time. It's like an old friend I never get tired of it. I wish you well and will be thinking of you.
Take Care.

CNO, You have a wonderful list of games to play. My best wishes and thoughts are with you during this time.
Brick walls do not a prison make, nor iron bars a cage. Give no thought of tomorrow, today was tomorrow and tomorrow will be today.

waveHello CNO
I havn't played many of those on your list,but would highly reccommend Immortals of Terra(nice Sci Fi adventure setting) and Nibiru(sort of Myst-like)
Some not on list that Ive enjoyed:Keepsake,Dreamfall,The Drawn series, and Dream Chronicle series(beautiful, colorful, imaginary worlds)
Highly recommend GOG to download many, many older games that have been remastered(?) to play on
WINXP or WIN7. Also you can read reviews about each game-very helpful. They have great sales too.

I too admire your bravery and effort to encourage others( including me) to look after health issues sooner. I hope your procedures and recovery are successful and that you find lots of great adventures in gameland during your hospital stay.Thoughts and prayers are with you. Keep us posted. smile
People do not remember how much you know,only how you make them feel
finished Gray Matter, playing Alice Madness returns and Deponia
