Hello fellow Gameboomers from an old (but frequently absent) friend.
I'm not on this forum nearly as often as I used to be some years ago, but it's still where I turn for adventure game advice! I finished Grey Matter a few months ago, and I'm now almost done with Lost Horizon. I liked both games, though each is a different style. I think I may like Lost Horizon a bit better, though i can't put my finger on why. Maybe it's because you don't have to keep going back to the same locations over and over, but each section is like a separate chapter in a different location. I also like the feature that reviews where you are and what your goals are, since I sometimes go weeks without playing and forget where I left off.
So, I'm looking for something else to play, and I prefer story based games with strong characters. I noticed Shadows of the Vatican. Any thoughts on that one. (I see part 2 is about to be released, but if I play , I'd start with part 1). I also see I've missed Broken Sword 4, and now Broken Sword 5 is out. (I've seen mixed reviews on 4, but like that 5 has gone back to the old animation).
I used to prefer the boxed versions of the games, but lately I've been getting the download version and have been enjoying that. (takes up no shelf space!) I suppose it's also cheaper for developers, and helps keep the adventure game genre alive.
