All this damage down south is just sickening.
All of your belonging gone.
This got me thinking [It happens sometimes] i
know we have our favorites and collector games,but
what are your keepers.
What if you could not replace any game you lost.
You only had room for five games packing to leave[no you can't leave
any of the kids instead] ,what would you pick?
Remember you can't replace any games later.
Mine would be
1.Riven
2.Syberia
3.Syberia#2
4.URU
5.Sanitarium
6.Amerazone

I know i listed six.I decided to leave the cat!!!! wink

In such circumstances I'd go for the Epic classic games. Long. One 40 hour games equals two 20 hour games.

Tex Murphy, Under a Killing Moon
Tex Murphy, Pandora Directive
Gabriel Knight 2
Gabriel Knight 3
The Longest Journey

Huhm, except maybe Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. Then again, I really enjoyed the light hearted humor of The Secret of Monkey Island.

I still have all the games I ever bought, except a few on 5.25" discs that I trashed and wished I hadn't now. I'd leave them all behind to save my cats or any other life, reality always trumps fantasy.

WHAT scared only 5.

Okay but in no particular order :
Syberia
Syberia 2
Still Life
Grim Fandango
Black Mirror

But all could change as currently playing Nibiru and just loving it, if the same level enjoyment lasts till the end then which one will have to give way. Oh decisions decisions, to early in the morning for such life changing decsions rotfl

I don't save any games. I trade them in. I don't like clutter and need the room and the money!

Tough to narrow down to 5, but I would have to go with:
1. Obsidian (I'm sure that no matter how many times I play this I would still have to puzzle my way through it)
2. Riven (Just for being able to roam around in)
3. Schizm (I love the graphics and the math puzzles in this one)
4. Myst V (I've only just started but am already loving it)
5. Zork Grand Inquisitor ((You have to have some humor in your life)

My games always become keepers. I hate to part with any. Choosing only 5 is next to impossible! I think I would have to choose according to which are the hardest to replace (old, rare) games.
Probably Obsidian, Black Dahlia, Reah, Zorks, Sanitarium, Gabriel Knights, Tex Murphys, Longest Journey. I would also have to grab some of my newer favorites also - Dark Falls, Syberias & Still Life. Then again, there are the computers! would need to grab both of them and at least one monitor. lol See, I told you it was impossible. :)j

Of course during a hurricane, the games would never be able to come with me unless I started packin days in advance. I would need all my strength to gather my cats, food, water and other necessities before worrying about games. Carrying the two little fatsos is just about more than I can handle and they would be my first priority.
I've never had to evacuate luckily, just rode them out, but if I did, i would spend so much time decidig that I'd probably just grab the first bunch I found. smile

so we can take 5 adventures and other games too?? Hope so, I couldn't leave my Sims collection behind, or Pandoras Box (good of Microsoft to name a game after one of our mods wink )!!

Adventures would have to be (based on my replay rate) -

Day of the tentacle
Syberia
Faust
Remedy (for quiet reflective moments)
Riven (cause I have never managed to finish it as puter has always been rebuilt in the middle of playing!!)


A bounce a day keeps the doctor away!!
Playing Sims2, Sherlock, Phantom of Venice
Reading Storm Breaking

I think I would grab five that I haven't played yet or I haven't finished yet and really, really want to finish.

Hmmmm. Let's see...

RHEM 2
Psychonauts
VOYAGE
Syberia 2
Aura

I suppose it would be crazy, as the winds howled, to transfer a few saved games onto disk so I wouldn't have to start all of them again completely from scratch?

Very interesting choices so far ... to them I will add :

1.) StarCraft
2.) Myst
3.) Baldurs Gate II : Shadows of Amn
4.) Neverwinters Night
5.) Diablo II

I've *invested* ( notice I did not use the word wasted razz ) many many hours into each of the above and could easily do so again ... and again ... and again ....

It's funny you would say that, ron.etti, because just recently I went through that for real - hurricane Rita was bearing down on us, and I knew I had limited space to put stuff in the truck. I grabbed around ten, taking them out of the boxes. The first five I grabbed were:
Touche, Discworld, GK2, Divine Divinity and Zanzarah. What I called a real twisty list! lol
