I have been Burning Carol Reed Game Disks with my own Graphics for quite a while. I use print to disks Water Shield Disks which are water resistant and smudge proof so they can last forever (I hope). I keep these and all my printed games in 3 very large Binders with disk sleeve pages with plenty of room for more. Here are the first 15 games for Carol adventures.

Thanks all, wish I had a better camera as the pictures don't show the colors and clarity as well as live.

15 games...Mikael is half way to 30 yes Is there any other PC game character or series that has lasted this long and have this many games???

Nancy Drew, Lara Croft come to mind quickly for characters that have more.

Very impressive GreyFuss. Wisely chosen pictures and very well cropped to the circular CD format.

My own collection is much less striking. Although I'm an adventure game hoarder, I don't have all issues of my own games. Except for the English disc versions, I only have the German versions and a couple of Russian and Japanese issues in my bookshelf, plus about a million copies of Blue Madonna that were sent back to me by a reseller that went bankrupt.

Nancy Drew is a character from a book first, right? Is Lara Croft originally from a book or is she an original character created in a PC game? Does she really have more than 15 action games? Isn't Carol Reed a character created in an adventure game or was she around in some other form before the games?

Greyfuss, Lara Croft has been in 19 games. The comics were created after the games, she was created for games to be the female version of Indiana Jones.

Nancy Drew has indeed been around much longer than the games.

I'm not sure it matters which came first, but the Lara Croft video games started in 1996 and there are 17 of them. Not sure, but I think the first movie might have been in 2001. A successful game character franchise is a successful game character franchise. Well, maybe not anymore with Nancy Drew which continues to puzzle many people.
