My adventure first game was The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy on the C64. I remembered getting stuck for a long time on the babelfish puzzle. Even now, I would still consider that game to be quite hard.

Although Ive been an avid gamer of all types such as with the commadore and all the consoles for many years the first "real" adventure game (My opinion of course ) smile I ever played was when 7th guest was first released then out came "Tex Murphy Under a killing moon" and I was forever lost in the world of adventure gaming. smile

My first adventure game was Nancy Drew (Haunted Mansion)and then I was obsessed to play every single ND game that was out and I did. Then I played Syberia and was hooked for life.

I cannot remember which came first, my first game or my own computer to play games on, so hubby could get in some bookkeeping time on his/our first computer. But I had a little money left from my meager inheritance from my dad, bought a computer and my first game was Beyond Time. It was also how I found Gameboomers because I was not getting very far in the game and Googled the internet for some help with it and GB looked like it would be helpful to me and very friendly. The rest is history - hundreds of adventure games later and find myself helping others stuck in games too, more than I ever imagined I would be able to do. I'm lovin' it!
Love, Betty Lou

After some experiences with other games & eventually getting hooked on the 1st Caspar game which led me to buying a PS1 the first games I bought was a Charity collection which included Myst, Road Rage & Broken Sword 1. I tried BS1 & wasn't impressed to start with!!! - too much dialogue, had a good shot at Myst & decided Road Rage wasn't for me. I had also bought Excalibur - got so far with that & left that alone. I eventually tried BS 1 again & persevered - that has got to be the game that launched me into AG's - after that I think it was Clocktower & then possibly Dracula Resurrection. I haven't looked back since. I did eventually a few years later go on to finish Myst & also Excalibur!

My daughter's husband got me hooked on the original Shivers and then Myst..........Been on the BAAG band wagon ever since.

If they could only be as well made as Myst (especially Riven) and the rest of the series.

Hi smile

Monkey Island 1 - swiftly followed by Monkey Island 2 ....
Lent to me by one of my Daughters in 1994. One of the best best things she ever did for me lol

I became addicted immediately and that started my "what have I already missed quest scared" - which then led on to the "what game is coming out next quest evil" - and finally the development of a full blown case of BAAGS blush

And of course joining Gameboomers didn't help .... Boy, do they have a lot to answer for !! rotfl

[Love 'em though ....]

Cheers.

My first game was a text adventure called Leather Goddesses of Phobos and then played many of the other games that Infocom produced.


Did you ever stop to think and then forget to start again?

Cue/ the one that came with a scratch and sniff card! That was awesome!

My first adventure game was Blade Runner by Westwood studios. 4 CDs, point and click. Gorgeous graphics. I wish there was a re-release for xp on dvd since my old copy of it doesn't work on the xp box.

For me it was "The Mystery of Monkey Island", about 1990. I love wit and humor in my games.

On my Commodore 64 I played Heroes of Karn, Fate of Atlantis and Simon the Sorcerer. When PC's became the thing to have I didn't get one for years. When I finally bought a PC my first game was the 1st Broken Sword. In the same shop I bought 2 other games I'd never heard of: The Beast Within and The Pandora Directive.

Since that time I've had to work backwards to get the games I'd missed and also keep up with new adventure games. For a few years it was like having 2 addictions. Now I've caught up with old games I just have the one addiction.

The first adventure game I played was Return to Mysterious Island. It was given to me by my friends as a birthday present. Good game.

I'm bringing back an old topic, but was just scrolling through and saw it. My son was playing Myst and I asked if I could try what he was working on (never having played a pc game). Loved the scenery and the ease of playing it - wasn't sure what I was doing, but when it came time to leave he said, "Hey, I couldn't get that to work, what did you do?" I have no idea! But the first one I tried on my own was Titanic. Then I was hooked.

If you are talking CDRom games, then my first was Dracula Resurrection. But, I had a computer in the 1980's, bought for the kids to do school reports on, basically a word processor. It had no internet and no hard drive, it did have two 5 1/4" floppy drives, so you had to load a boot everytime, then use MSDOS or GWBasic, depending on what you wanted to do. I bought Shareware and my favorite games were the Kroz ones, like Kingdom of Kroz. They were sort of Pacman like games, where all these critters came at you, you had to dodge them and whip them to finish the level, earning gems, whips, etc. I played this forever, keyboard only, no mouse on this computer either and finally made it to the top level, #75. I played games on this computer forever, even the grands were playing Railrun when they were maybe four and that was only seven years ago. This computer was with us, then to my older grands, then back home again until it finally died. This was an Epson and I bought it with printer for $1300, hard to believe my last gaming computer was less than that, eek I would really like to play Kroz again.
