Oh dear Marian you're further gone than I thought evil And cheesy pretty much describes it. Maybe we need to have a Gothos-a-thon laugh

Syd, I had no idea you had that charmer in your collection - I should have known! lol I think it is some developer's nightmare that he put on CD - completely incomprehensible. And hey, I have one of the other Gothos, but I think it is hiding somewhere with Silver (I'd forgotten about those two).

Are we allowed to giggle a little when Marian plays The Scroll? evil

Oh nooooooo! slapforehead I don't have that! Do you happen to have Lords of Tantrazz? I would like to play it someday, but I don't think anyone has ever successfully completed it.

Edit : I first put Lords of Flatbush, got it mixed up with the movie. Don't want to send you on a wild goose chase, Syd! laugh

Rowan, I'm playing Tony Tough right now and I think it is hilarious. I can't wait for the second game in the series to come out.

I don't remember the name of my worst game but I recall it's about this middle age techie type guy who's always thinking up these little devious electronic circuits in the basement lab of a police department and he...oh wait....never mined that's my...hmmm...real life....sorry 'bout that. Any who, back to my alternate reality.

Journey to the Center of the Earth is definitely one of the worst adventure games ever made.

Odd reading these posts. One persons trash is another's treasure.

Oh and Syd, I have the 4th copy of Gothos. I even played it half way through then changed computers and never did install it on the newer computer.

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Really sorry to hear that, Retired. I just bought it and have it sitting in my 'immediate' stack. frown

At least Forever Worlds has some collector viability. I'm holding onto it for posterity. I never saw such a buggy, ridiculous & annoying game before or since. I think it's the most hated newer game around. The Scroll seems to take the prize for the older games but I haven't played that one.

Rushes! - you are very right! - I have seen a lot of games mentioned here that will stick in my mind as someone else's idea of BAD! - I would now be tempted to pick them up to see for myself (but only if they were very, very cheap!)

Wow! This thread has really taken off since the last time I checked in.

I like the humour I'm seeing here this time around. Sometimes when a "worst game" thread gets started, it can get mean-spirited--but that doesn't seem to be happening this time. Kudos, everyone.

"The Forgotten" was one of the first games I played and it was so buggy I could barely get through it. Plus, it was short and unfinished. I don't mind planning a game series from the get go, but you should make a distinction between the big story arc and the small story arc. So each installment brings you to a resolution--maybe a cliffhanger, but still some form of resolution-- rather than leaving you feeling like you played a game with a lot of stuff missing.

Robert,

About your comment concerning shoes versus games: you are correct. Let's just say that my shoes are one grain of sand and my games are the entire beach. lol

lol Marian! I'm glad I don't have a thing for shoes like I do for games and books and a few other things - geesh, this house is crowded enough! Imelda Marcos I am not.

WW -- excellent point. Maybe for The Forgotten, adventure developers hadn't quite realized how to do this yet. Now they're doing it. I think the AGON series, the Bone series and the Delaware St. John series manage this feat rather well.

As for the shoes -- if I had as many shoes as I have adventure games, I'd have to add a wing onto my house just to store them.

Here we go again. lol & rotfl

I liked The Forgotten and wished there was more. I played on xp and don't remember experiencing any bugs just that it could have been longer but some of the new games like Delaware St John are as short from what I've heard.

If I ever see Forever Worlds selling at around the £5 mark, then I don't think I'll be able to stop myself. :lol

I hope I don't get in trouble for this but , judging from the posts that you ladies have wrote about games and shoes , I would venture to guess that any woman who loves Adventure games , or any genre probably doesn't have many pairs of shoes . Just enough to get by I would think , and maybe even a couple of pairs with holes in them . " These shoes will last a while longer , I want that new game I read about at Gameboomers that's supposed to be awful " laugh

I don't know about that, Robert. We all seem to know how much space a lot of shoes take up.
