A personality trait of mine! We all know the multitude of doors, drawer, closets, valves, etc that we can open or turn while playing any adventure game but I must confess that I have this overwhelming urge to close them all before I leave. I can't leave a room untidy. It's bad enough that I will even back track to check. What is it I think the owner is going to say? "Not only did he take my toilet plunger but he left the water running". I'm a tidy 'thief' in need of professional assistance for which there is no medical term yet assigned. Any body else have this unnamed adventurous disorder or is it just me?

Hi Mordack, I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels compelled to shut doors, turn off taps etc - but if I forget I'm not so bad I'll go back! rotfl

I like to replace things the way I found them, which usually means closing them back up again. I am cautious to check everything though:
Click to reveal..
Remember the hidden stairs in Riven that were only seen once a doorway was closed and the Rhem games often have things hidden behind open doors.

That is so funny. I sometimes ask myself--what difference will it make but I close the drawers and the doors anyway. rotfl

I always replace whatever I can. It's the least I can do, after pocketing people's change, reading their private emails, listening to their phone messages, eating fruit off their trees, cutting their hedges into topiary, going through their garbage, taking their jewelry, stealing clothes from their closets, playing their pianos, knocking down their doors, sabotaging their lab experiments, trying out their board games, opening their safes, going through their backpacks, sampling their wine, using their sinks, cooking stuff in their microwaves, figuring out their family secrets and releasing their favorite ghosts.

Now if only I can figure out how to stuff an umbrella, gas can, a dozen or so rocks, a dog, a bird, some rotting meat, a bolt cutter, tree branches, glue, assorted vials with chemicals and various odds and ends I find in my pockets at the same time!!

Hi Mordack smile

I too like to keep things tidy lol

[Interesting to note that so far the majority of members who feel this way are female evil]

Cheers.

How nice to find out I am not the only one to want to close doors, drawers, etc. I always think , especially if it is a mystery game that I shouldn't leave a clue that I was there! happydance

Alright everybody... As Mordack said no medical term yet assigned... well I think it could very easily be a form of OCD. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder smile. But I'm quite the opposite in most games unless it requires it or I believe that it may have some later influence later in the game. And no it's not a bad thing for all those drawr closers razz. But I do have to say... It's just a game. Your CRAZY razz!!!! LOL

Of course! Though now that I think about it, releasing the ghosts may be the most unforgiveable. wave

Not a bad habit to get into; I remember a puzzle in Riven in which a door which one opens to enter a room hides a clue which cannot be seen until one manually closes the door. Since then I've found other similar sneaky tricks...

There's one game that has a sequence in which you have to put everything back the way you found it or you'll get killed. I've played so many games I can't remember which one it was.

I only obsess over closing faucets. I don't mind leaving doors and drawers open.

Apparently, there's an extra bit of dialogue in Broken Sword 1 if you don't close the faucet - something about not getting any sleep because someone left it open and it flooded the place. lol

I also have that urge to close doors and place everything in order before I leave a place and get frustrated if I can't do it. Sali

I used to close everything so the owners wouldn't know I'd been snooping but now I like to leave them open--that way I know I've already searched that room lol

Thanks Mordack for bringing up this hilarious topic. I've always been a secret "tidy-upper" in adventure games. I should have known I wasn't alone in this affliction. I'm glad to see all these good folk confessing to the same problem. Now that we're out of the closet, don't forget to shut the closet door.
