Forever Worlds! Never before or since did I have to jump through such hoops to get a game to play. I only was able to finish it it because Mr. Lipid provided me with not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 saved games. I couldn't get rid of the game fast enough.

I'm trying to figure out how I was lucky enough to avoid the infamous "Forever Worlds" if it was worse than "Conspiracies" and "Missing Since January" smile !

One other game I'd like to nominate for the list is "The Omega Stone". Hated it!

I agree with ShadowinmyRoom and Maggie, I just don't see the appeal of the myst series, riven etc.

Forever Worlds has a close competitor for worst game ever: Titanic-Dare to Discover (not to be confused with Titanic-Adventure Out Of Time). You see it on Ebay now & then. It could be described as a Myst clone created circa 1998 somewhere in Europe on a budget of what must have been around $20 or so. It really has nothing to with the Titanic and the closest you come to the Titanic itself is the picture on the jewel box. The graphics are putrid, the music nauseating and there are so few individual screen shots/pictures that if you are 100 yards from a building, one click will put you inside it. That results in you're being able to move nice and quick from where you are to where you weren't, it's just that you happened to pass by everywhere you wanted to be in the process!

(One tiny request: Since the thread is entitled 'Worst Adventures' as opposed to 'My Least Favorite Adventures', I hope people will keep that in mind eg. Myst may be your least favorite AG, but that doesn't make it the 'worst' AG!) smile

Good point, Sir Dave. The Myst games are some of my favorites too.

I've been playing Cold Case Files and actually found it rather relaxing. Every so often there's something to be said for not thinking deeply while playing a game. Or thinking at all, for that matter. whistle

Thanks Andy - I wondered what you might eventually do with that!!
I completely forgot about Forever Worlds - I have just got to agree with everyone on that!!

I've just got In Memoriam/Missing - so thanks for the warning!

Hi guys,

Forever Worlds for me also I had a lot of problems playing it even with the good help given by MrLipid, when I bought my new putor it was the first game I installed and play it for few minutes before I decided it wasn't worth the time and efforts, it's back in the box where it will stay. Thorgal come in second for me a lot of technical problems with it.

Cold Case Files was just horrible in my opinion. $20 for 20 mins of gameplay isn't worth it. I guess that would have to be the worst for me.

9 last resort....Didn't play Forever World.bad reviews.I really didn't play any of the games that were listed [other then Lighthouse] which i loved.
I am more picky then i use to be when buying games.
I think thats why i don't get the bad ones to much anymore.

Hi, chrissie!

You may enjoy "Missing", but I thought it was a complete waste of time.

What made me so angry was that the premise was wonderful and I really looked forward to getting my hands on it. I envisioned an adventure game where I would solve puzzles, talk to characters, collect inventory items and examine various locations to obtain leads in the kidnapping case while receiving Emails from the kidnapper to give the game a more realistic touch.

What I ended up with was a serious of frustrating arcade puzzles with a few videos thrown in for good measure, and Emails that ended up to be more annoying than helpful. There is NO way I could ever have finished without the walkthru here at GAMEBOOMERS and, even with that, I still had problems with some of the puzzles.

Some games live up to their hype. IMHO, "Missing" isn't one of them.

I agree with MAGGIE57 that the Myst games are among the worst games,but the all time worst game in my 16 years of playing adventure games would have to be Daugthers of Serpents which came out in 1992 and put out by a company called Millenium

The only reason it's not on more peoples' lists is that so few have been able to get it to play at all.

Perhaps you missed Sir Dave's and Becky's posts earlier. Next to last post on the second page.

Daughter of Serpents is actually the same game as The Scroll. They reissued Daughter of Serpents on CD and changed the name to The Scroll (I assume so people wouldn't know it was the same awful game)

Yes, it was a VERY unique experience...one that I'm happy is unique. lol I know you & several others of the Quest Gang enjoyed it. Perhaps I would have not hated it so if I'd played it with you. I suffered through it alone, because I'm stubborn & obviously a glutton for punishment, only to encounter a game stopping bug right at the end. Serves me right. lol

Daughter of the Serpents AND The Scroll....doesn't Syd own & love them both? whistle

There are two on my list, Forever World and Wanted. The first one made no sense at all. The second one was just plain stupid.

There seems to be growing consensus about Forever Worlds' place as maybe the worst adventure game ever. One thing to be said about it however, is that it knocked off Jazz & Faust as the previous holder of that title!

I absolutely agree that Conspiracies was the most poorly designed games to ever come out on the market.

I still shudder when I think about that one.

Cold Case Files was the worst I ever played with Missing a close second. Actually, there's a whole bunch of really boring and forgettable games from dreamcatcher like Forever Worlds, Thorgal's Quest, Egypt...the list goes on. Also I never enjoyed the Myst series and Myst clones but I wouldn't call them the worst.
Finally, I nominate Alfred Hitchcock's The Final Cut for most wasted potential and ruined franchise.

I think the reason why we do not like certain games are for many reasons. For me, Even though I thought the Myst games were beautiful, I just had too much trouble trying to get around in them, I don't know if that is real dislike or me. I have played part of Forever Worlds and the part I have played I like, but it is only such a small part. I can't quite figure out what makes a game in total that I love, except Postmortem, Syberia and Syberia 2, all the Dungeon Siege, The Black Mirror are those I really love. So I do not know the difference between those and Myst, I just know for myself it is too difficult and I gave up.

I hope it is not good old conspiracy you are talking about here...also known as KGB. Espionage, adventure, gathering clues, conspiracy theories left and right...what more could you ask for? I remember a friend of mine and me used to sit up late and play it when we were 12 or so...and you had to have a block of paper next to you, noting appointments, names and phone numbers.

Info about the game I am talking about...

I think it's important that we keep in mind when we say 'worst adventure game' that we differentiate between those we disliked or couldn't get into and those that are badly designed, glitchy, pointless games.

Whether or not you like games like Myst, (I'm not a fan of them myself) I think we do have to agree that they were well designed with beautiful graphics and a decent story. Definitely not in the same class as Forever Worlds or Conspiracies or the Stroll. smile

Oh, come on. Jazz & Faust was slow, some of the puzzles were irritating and the story didn't follow our earth morality, but the graphics were lovely and the 2-POV concept was quite interesting. I liked it fine.
