Okay, we have a current thread about the easiest adventure game you have played, so here is a thread about the worst adventure games you have ever played. evil
On top of this, some of these mazes are timed sequences, and are *dark*...

Piece of cake -

Chateau D'or for oh, so many reasons

A Fork in the Tale for the same oh, so many reasons

The Scroll - that game just goes without saying

Nine - the first time I actually wanted to reach through the screen and throttle a game character evil

Hey, everyone is entitled to his/her opinion.. That would not be a game I would choose for this thread, but it is your choice, and therefore valid.. By it's nature, this is a very subjective thread... <img border="0" alt="bravo" title="" src="graemlins/bravo.gif " />

I second the vote for "A Fork in the Tale" and "9". But Turkey is much too nice a title for them. How about rat??? Blood sucking leech??? Bloated cockroach??? Would you like to know how I really feel about those games? laugh

I agree with Rusty- The Longest Journey gets a vote from me. Too much talking!
Schizm- very pretty but too hard!

Rusty & Sassafras, I'm with you. It would have to be The Longest Journey. Way too much talking. I read a book during most of the conversations.

Hey Nickie, lol

For me...Had to be ND's Haunted Carousel, I can't even bring myself to give it to my nieces and nephews.
It literally is the smell in this room that only a dog or cat can appreciate. One would bury it and the other would cover it with litter <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

The Scroll was bad too.

I liked Nine, though I couldn't finish it the second time I played because of a bug.

I don't think TLJ would qualify, whatever one's personal opinion of it is, because so many people DID like it. A "golden turkey" thread isn't quite the same as a "games you hate" thread, is it? If it is, never mind what I just said.

I have to without a doubt say "Rhem". ONLY game I never finished, but coming in a close second is Watchmaker or Midnight Nowhere. But I can't say for sure yet because I'm still struggling through them. I'm utterly bored with them.

or as I named it after many a frustrating hours... Forgotten Worlds and it should be lol

The potential was there, many of the funnies were drowned out by the background music. The humour was very twisted!!

Sorry to disagree with a few here TLJ is one of my all time favorite games because of the conversations and character interactions and fantastic plot. As for what I consider to be the worst I've played it has to be Myst and Exile (didn't go near Riven, ROTS and Mysterious Journey). Can't stand games that are all puzzles on top of puzzles on top of puzzles and no real story or character interaction. My all time worst vote though would probably go to Forever Worlds!!!! By the way, am currently playing Midnight Nowhere and finding it to be alot of fun and really good game in general. Hang in there BrownEyedTigre the end will blow your mind!! A totally different kind of surprise!!! (I'm actually still playing it, some idiot tipped off the end to me, could have killed him. But it is something I've always wanted to do/be in an adv game and I'm playing the game from that perspective and loving it.

Enjoy,
Bill

My vote goes to:

Thorgal's Quest - mad What a disappointment.

City of Lost Children - duh Had an arcade sequence that was a game stopper for me.


You laugh because I'm different
I laugh because you're all the same

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Okay, I don't even consider "Forever Worlds" a game... A big, fat joke, perhaps (One that was played on everyone who was tricked into purchasing it.. what an abomination).... thumbsup

"A Quiet Week-end in Capri"- it was pretty to look at for about the first three hours, then it just became B-O-O-O-O-Ring. (Apologies to all of you who liked it - a lot of the previously mentioned hated games are on my favorites list.)

Forever Worlds, I can't get it to sell or trade, okay what if I put it on one of my table feet to level the table, that it is good for...

Another one, I am not to fond with is A Quiet Weekend in Capri, like SuMac said, pretty to look at for a while, then it gets to you...tired of all that walking and getting lost..not my kind of game...
