New Adeventures of the Time Machine - The constant change in perspective is extremly annoying. Also I didn't know when I bought it that it would have action sequences. I'm not good at them. I can't get pass the jail section. On my screen the game is so dark that if I turn Wells invisible he actually is invisible so I can't see him to move him pas the guards. I can't fight my way out so I gave up.

Riven and Lighthouse - I like character intereaction not an endless stream of puzzles with no logic too them. I've never played Myst or it would probably be on my list.

I never said that I do not love Kofun, I love it so much that I am still playing it on and off after almost a year. Time stands still when I play it and I hardly get anywhere.

I feel the same about Blue Ice too. LOL

Don't be sorry, Inferno! I never said I liked it and I would certainly not recommend it. Very poor game all-around.

Rusty, Maybe you should put together an untwisted list - or the straight story laugh

We could all say the 10 games we would not recommend and take it from there. smile

You'd probably get a lot of anti votes for Myst then - not because it's the worst game, but because so many people have played it and a certain percentage of gamers don't like first person games or "lonely" games. That's the trouble with an "anti" sort of list.

Crystal Key was the game I played after finishing Myst III Exile. Unlike the Myst series, where you were given clues as to what needed done when you encounter something, Crystal Key had almost none of that. Aside from the clue to the first key, in a book in the basement of the house, you received no other clues as to what needed done beyond that point. And if that weren't bad enough, in my mind, some of the things you needed to use were not placed in a position of clear viewing, as in being almost off the screen. Being able to see only a hint of something lying there is not the proper way to display something. Riddle of the Sphinx was a snap compared to Crystal Key.


If something gets your goat, it just proves you have a goat to get.

Howdy smile

Maybe you could have an ~anti~twisty list IF you specified reasons for putting a title there besides "I dont this genre" (ie first person/ puzzle games). I would like to know which ones people found the most buggy, illogical, endless etc. I generally dont like horror for ex, so my opinions on those games arent worth much to an afficionado.

I thought Crystal Key was okay (accept for the action bits on the spaceship). Pretty in places. Pixel hunting required etc

Anyone else on here getting that "near miss" feeling from some of these entries? I barely passed on "Mystery of the Druids" & "Final Cut" (nearly bought that yesterday!)

I have yet to play Bureau 13 or Time Machine but they are currently peering at me nervously from my stack. I will probably still try them but I sure am glad I didnt pay much!

I know there are games I dropped with a resounding thud liking nothing about them (I liked Labyrinth of Time until it became frustrating) but they are hiding their titles in the frightened corners of my conciousness whispering "Dont make me come out! PLEASE dont make me come out"

laugh

PS I find it incredible anyone could *not* love Myst & Riven! AARRRGGHH matey! Belay that heretical talk, I have a plank, a sword, and a 3-headed monkey to make ya walk it!AAAARRRGGHHH lol lol

PPS What is Kofun about?
edited: nevermind found the review for "Sacred Mirror of Kofun" on here (plus others on google, where it was dubbed Kofun the Nofun.)

I think there's been something worthwhile in most of the games I've played but one that really aggravated and would URGE everyone NOT to play is The Forgotten. It was too short and there was no ending. It was like a game demo. I was really enjoying despite the bugginess (especially with Quicktime) but when I got to the end it was like a rude slap in the face: to be continued. Well, it wasn't continued and it left me feeling very angry. I wouldn't want to see anyone go through that. The worst part is that it had such potential.

Robot World, very tedious, never really felt like I was getting anywhere

Shivers II, probably because I was expecting something better from the makers of Shivers I

Schizm, didn't like anything about this game.

Myst, although I did enjoy the following two

Schizm - the most buggy pain in the neck game. When you do get the dang thing working the puzzles make no sense (and that's before my copy keeps defaulting into the Polish language). Haven't finished it. Probably never will.

Another game that hasn't raised a vote yet, but definitely should is Chaos. I played it so long ago I can't actually remember the storyline, but it gave no clue as to what the puzzles were, or how to solve them.


Don't follow me, I'm lost too!

Hey! We loved Chaos! Errr.... assuming you mean Chaos: A Fantasy Adventure Game. It was offbeat, funny, and a good mix of puzzle difficulty.
