Hi,
I know we all talk alot about games that we would recommend playing. I would like to know what game (yes, just one) that you would definitely NOT recommend, for whatever reason. Mine would have to be Arabian Nights. Everything about it I found horrible.
Rusty laugh
P.S. - Yes, I know that "un-recommend" is not a real word. I just made it up!

It is okay to elaborate a little, people! Please give your reason also.
Thanks,

Timeline also, it is not an adventure game IMHO too much action and stupid action at that.

Strange... I hesitated at starting Final Cut when I realized that it was a keyboard game, but I, for one, am glad that I had second thoughts on it! It turned out to be a verrrrrrrrrry interesting game! Plus, I really enjoyed the spoof on all of the Hitchcock thrillers!

There ARE a couple of games that I couldn't trade FAST enough, they were so bad, but darned if I can remember them right now!

Of Light and Darkness. Most confusing game I have ever played.

The crystal key, brab and boring. Rusty are you talking about the action/adventure game by Dreamcatcher? If so I loved the game. I thought everything about the game was fun and a good challenge without being extremely difficult. And it was a long game. A lot of play for your money.

Ladyyve, Do you mean "The New Adventures of the Time Machine"? I never heard of the "Return of".

Was enjoying the game up to the first cut scene by the time it got to the implied rape scene, all I could think was they took a good game and ruined it by trying to gross me out.

For me it would be Riven. I found it boring but I am not a fan of first person adventures.


It's nice to be important but it is much more important to be nice.

Adventure at the Chateau D'Or

(I didn't think Hitchcock was that bad - just mediocre.)

I vote for OLAD, only because I've never played Chateau D'Or. Of Light and Darkness was so confusing and I never finished it.

Loved Arabian Nights!!!!

I may get stoned for this one, but Liath. I found it really annoying and not the least challenging.

I wouldn't recommend the Ward to anybody, mostly for the same reasons Jenny100 had in her reply to the Ward - SciFi Adventure thread.

Nine. Too bizarre and boring.
