Prompted by my last post - I have so far got to nominate Conspiracies - I like the idea of the interactive video and the story seems to be good but it is confusing and it is too vague and too vast and there is a lack of a thread. I have played a lot of games!

What would you consider your worst adventure game and why?

Lighthouse. I was soooooo bad at it. Therefore, it must have been the game's fault.

Obviously, you have never had the displeasure of Forever Worlds. Up until this game came out, I would buy any adventure game that was released. This practice ended with Forever Worlds. I refuse to buy a game without reading several reviews, or playing a demo, ever again.

I've gotta agree with Chrissie and Becky. "Conspiracies" and "Lighthouse" were two of the worst games I've ever played, and I didn't finish either one of them. However, the award for the absolute hands-down winner goes to "Missing Since January", if it's even considered an adventure game!! It not, "Conspiracies" and "Lighthouse" share the title.

For me there are several, but now don't yell, it is the Myst Series, just awfull for me, but then I also did not like Riven. I think those types of games are great for those who can get arounds in them, I have Myst 3 and 4 here, unplayed except for a couple of minutes, and I always feel I was given a road map with no where to go.

I second chrissie's nomination of Conspiracies - remember putting the bra around the lightpost? Enough said.

I must agree with MrLipid that Forever Worlds wins hands down. A game has to pretty bad for another gamer to give it to you and pay the postage to mail to you just to get it out of their house.

Forever Worlds, without a doubt.

Missing and/or Forever Worlds, not my cup of tea. I have yet to finish either one.

I never got Forever Worlds, so I vote for In Memoriam/Missing.

No-one here has ever heard of Cold Case Files? That was so bad it couldn't even be called a game... and I spent a full 40 euro's on it. Finished it in less than an hour (and only because I couldn't believe I had already solved a case and kept on searching for more clues and talking to the same people over and over again).

Forever Worlds is a good runner-up though.


I'll be back, one day, when I feel like it.

Evidently not a lot of people ever played Koala Lumpur. There was a game stopper (for me) arcade sequence in the game that I never could get a save game for and the solutions were of no help. I checked a few boards and there were a lot of people in my boat.

Anyway, that game tops my list of worst.
I also could not get into or finish Mysterious Journey so it is also right up there at the top of my worst list as well.

Forever Worlds was the only adventure game in my life that I didn't finish.
I always try to finish a game (or a book) even if I don't like it, just hoping that will get better at some point.
With Forever Worlds I just couldn't carry on, was ugly, boring, pointless! sleep

I am now so glad that my copy of Conspiracies would never install properly so I never did get to play it - hooray! smile

Martin Mystere was absolutely awful. Bad voice acting,voice changed to text only,in mid sentence, for no good reason. Nice locations and reasonable story but voice acting even worse than Watchmaker just set my teeth on edge through the whole game.

While I agree that Conspiracies & FW were both reallllly baaaad games. My vote goes to The Quivering. Yuck! What a horrible save system. Made me feel too guilty to save. lol

(You had to kill a cute little monster every time in order to save! cry )

An honorable mention to Of Light And Darkness for the most boring, yet panicky game. One giant timed sequence of repetitive orb filing.

What about THE SCROLL!!!! scared

laugh Love, Jen laugh

Hey Jen -- being bored while in a panic must have been a unique experience. Can you still remember the feeling? laugh

Wow--everybody's so down on Conspiracies.... laugh I really had fun with that game. And CBSection, how could you hate The Watchmaker? I really enjoyed that one too!!

Never did get around to playing Forever Worlds...

My vote for the worst game is probably Cold Case Files. It was such an awful game that I totally forgot about it until Pollo Diablo mentioned it. lol The second runner up for worst game in my book would be Legacy Dark Shadows. That game just was pretty bad.

Well, thanks to GBs I have avoided many of the front runners here. The one game I never finished due to utter boredom was Traitor's Gate (tho' I've had Voyage loaded up and partially played for almost a month now and haven't gone back to it since the first session... looks like we have a runner up!)

Dawn, what happened to your Spike avatar??
