Hi Susan. To you, and others who were surprised by my voting Dark Fall a 'Turkey' and a 'Chicken' ---

I LOVED the game. Did I forget to mention that? lol

I'll buy every game that Jonathan Boakes creates.

THAT'S why I voted for it. It was too good a game, IMO, to have those photos in it; and too delightfully CREEPY a game, IMO, to leave me standing in front of the Dark Fall's rainbow-colored puzzle that I repeatedly messed up... ALIVE.
Well...your mind obviously works in a really, really different way than mine! I just can't even wrap my mind around the concept of "this game was too good not to kill me!" duh

Skippy,
You are too funny but absolutely right! I kept trying to get into those 3 doors in that small hallway, thinking there had to be more to see. I also wrote down the symbols, hoping they would be a clue later in the game. No such luck.

Jenny100,
I agree with you about Rhem not qualifying as a turkey. It was not a game for folks who don't like mechanical puzzles, but it was well crafted and challenging. I enjoyed it very much.

Sorry for the late reply Nickie. It was a couple of nights worth of playing before I reached the first cutscene. The game is tough in that every screen has dozens of items you can look at and try to pick up, so it's easy to miss something. I know I kept my notes while playing, so if you do decide to start it and get stuck, I should be able to give you a clue or two. smile

Thanks Lakerz, but I couldn't even get it to install on this computer! lol When I drag my old one out, I'll give it a try again, and know I would appreciate the tips!

I remember that thread, and the response to queries about the sites going down or disappearing was (as I recall) "You won't have to worry about it"...

Sorry, But given TAC's overall track record (which has just gotten worse and worse.. now standing at abysmal), I don't believe a word they say at this point... Just look at their latest debacle.

warmbear, I don't know if it makes any difference to you, but just so you know : the online site for In Memoriam (which Dreamcatcher released as Missing) doesn't have anything to do with Dreamcatcher or Adventure Games. Its SKL Network backed by Ubisoft.

That's interesting, but no it does not change my original sentiment about any game that is not self-contained. I still play games that are 10 years old (and even older)... That clearly will not be possible with games(?) such as "Missing".

As I recall, Ubisoft and EA both tend to shut down online games after about 3 years.

I never played turkeys til the end but I would not judge a game until I see the ending.

rotfl Skippy! I've felt that way about many games. I *STLL* want to see the rest of Tay. Sad, eh?

I also avoid games that depend on websites to run. For one thing, I usually like my computer to be disconnected from the net when playing adventure or puzzle games.

Maybe you could save the necessary pages to your hard drive? I guess it depends on how that part is laid out. duh

I agree with that and, using that as a criterion, I haven't played a "real turkey" - yet. lol But, two games that I intensely disliked, for different reasons, are The Longest Journey and The Omega Stone.

I don't play a huge number of games, adventure games can be quite hard to get. That's why I hate to buy one that I can't be bothered to finish. CSI was one of these. I kept wondering where the actual game was. At all times you are taken by the hand and told what to do. I know it can be frustrating when you seem to be stuck in a game forever and you've clicked on everything and tried to combine the most ridiculous items but then you get to that moment when you just grin from ear to ear. And that's what we want from our games.

I liked The Omega Stone... when I wasn't booted out by the infamous "Photo Album Corruption Glitch"...

My vote for the number one worst game of all time has to be "Stupid Invaders"! I don't get offended very easily, but that piece of trash was rather insulting!

I have to say the worst I've played was Crystal Key, twice. First time was after initial purchase, and I stopped playing when it got so confusing what had to be done.

Second time, and I finished it this time, I just had read something about the game and decided to try again. Had to use a WT most of the time because there wasn't any way to know what had to be done when or with what.
