I didn;t even realize this was an old ressurected thread smile

Hmmm I see what you mean now. I think GK2 is an excellent example, because even though my son played much of this - there were nuamces about the story line that he would not have gotten due to his age. Like the sexual tension and conflicted way Von Gower felt towards Gabriel. This was a strong hint as to future actions on Von Gowers part.

I really agree with this.

I'm wracking my brains to think of other things, but I can't just now. All I can think of is books... but I feel the need to say--maybe as a way of clarifying the topic with parallel circumstances?--that I was an extremely advanced reader as a kid, and though I read books by, say, Irving Stone and Mary Renault and all from 2nd grade on,and enjoyed them, re-reading them as an adult I realise that there was a lot going on there I didn't pick up on, because a child just doesn't have the life experience to appreciate the nuances etc. I think that's what Jenny's talking about.

Good thread!

I would not think Amerzone is a adult game.
There is no blood or gore,just a neat airplane,
and some cool looking animals. duh

Look at what you're calling "adult" - blood and gore?

What we are talking about is games that will have more meaning for gamers that have a little more life experience. In Amerzone,

think of the characters - the old man in the lighthouse,who used to be a scientist, the priest, the dictator... They used to be friends, but it all fell apart somehow and their lives took very different paths. Their dreams of "improving" Amerzone brought it to ruin. How did that happen? Their original motivations weren't so bad, were they?

What about Amber: Journeys Beyond?? I don't think anybody has mentioned that game in this post, yet. If I remember correctly, that had some complex subjects in it. wave wave

I think you're right about that.
I've added it.
