I visit GOG once or twice a week & go to their wish list. I've clicked on just about all of those old games as well as quite a few other people have in the hopes that GOG would take pity on us LOL. Maybe if we all go there & click on our favorite old games they just might start making a few more adventure games.

I notice Obsidian on the list in the first post. I remember playing it for months all those years ago. And the office level with the glass partition walls was graphically impressive at that time. The way light reflected through the several glass panels.

Months sounds right DJ4! I recollect it being rather difficult.

I always take months for RPG's and can still take months for some Adventures.
[As is how it went when I played my first one lol]

Turning over every pebble - to be on the safe side - does take time !! wink

Its a good plan Mad. I get held up for ages in Riven the first time I played because I didn't close a door and see what was behind it.

Whilst still very new to computer gaming, I played The Secret of Monkey Island - and spent 3 weeks trying to win the "spitting competition" !! redface

My Daughter knew what I should do, but wouldn't tell me the answer. She wanted me to get the knack of PC gaming. And so she just kept telling me to "watch the graphics".

But at that time, I didn't realise that even the slightest change in the background graphics could be "meaningful".

Oh my goodness !! Those were the days, eh ?? lol

Surely you mean Monkey Island 2?

Sad to say, I would never have solved that particular puzzle on my own.

I assume you disinherited her though think
I remember the spitting game but not the details. My bete noir as far as these sorts of puzzles go was that #@$# goat puzzle in Broken Sword.hardwall

Yes. Of course I do, CaptainD. Sorry about that shocked

I must have been distracted when I gave the wrong title - seeing as Monkey Island 2 just happens to be my favourite of the Monkey Island games !! yes

There are many that consider it to be the greatest AG of all time... I'm one of those who wasn't quite as fond of it, but I remember (with a considerable amount of pain) that spitting competition!
