This brings back some memories! KQ1 was one of my first games, too. The first one I actually played and finished was Gold Rush. I played all the Sierra "Quest" games & loved them. My favorites were the Quest for Glory games. I still play them sometimes.

The first adventure game I played was either Myst or King's Quest VI, I'm not sure which.

The first adventure game I completed was Riven though. For some reason I didn't finish Myst until after I finished Riven. I do think I watched my father complete Myst a while before I played it myself, but the gap was long enough that I couldn't remember enough for that to affect me in playing the game.

Dare I admit it was Quake?
It wasn't until I played Twinsun's Odyssey that I was attracted to the storyline as a legitimate part of a game, then I read about Myst as Riven was about to be released, and the rest as they say is history.

It was MYst in January 1997. Couldn't eat, sleep or anything. Dog knew it was going to die of starvation. Now look at what that game got me into. smile

The first adventure game I remember playing was a text adventure. I can't remember what it was called, as I was eleven, and my stepfather had given me something to keep me occupied when I was visiting him at work. grin I remember really enjoying it, a lot more than any Pac Man games and the like, and I wanted to play more of that "word game," as I called it.

Then came The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which I loved, even though I never got through it. lol The first graphical adventure I played was an Alice in Wonderland game. I remember it being very difficult, but once again, I was eleven, so who knows how difficult it actually was. smile After that came Maniac Mansion, and by then, I was hooked. thumbsup

Zork hooked me, Myst reeled me in, and Baldur's Gate tempted me to the Dark Side. It's been a blast! grin

My first adventure game was monkey island and i fell in love. Played all of them and hope they can do something similar. Great style and humor. First video game was Tomb Raider and Laura and i are real close buds...lol..Love her games.

EDIT: I have to correct myself on the first adventure game i've played. It was Secret of the Nautilus and i have to say i was engrossed in that game. It really made me want more and more games like that. I do love Final Fantasy too, I'm still on XII. have hundreds of hours but i always go back to my adventure games which i have too many and still want more..lol..have a nice day.

EDIT: Myst III Exile was awesome and so was Amerzone. I can't shut up...sorry..bye

Like other Boomers, mine was MYST. Sheer torture but I endured and enjoyed.

Space Invaders was my first and favorite game. I bought the Atari for my son and then wouldn't let him play it LOL LOL. My friend and I were addicted to it and were so bad that we were constantly doing things to make the other lose. I always won anyway LOL LOL How about Pac Man?
Oh that was sooooo much fun playing with the kids too. devilchili

Nancy Drew "Message In A Haunted Mansion" got me started. I have all of those games. Then I went on to Syberia,Amerzone, Delaware St. John, Keepsake, The Longest Journey to name a few. After all of that I played Big City San Francisco and have been hooked on HOG's ever since!

The first game I played was an InfoCom game - text only:
"Zork".

Next was another GREAT InfoCom game:
"Leather Goddesses of the Planet Phobos"

I am OLD.... rotfl

Friends Sue, Carl and I took turns typing with all of us giving suggestions. It was great fun, and really sped up my typing!


Happy Trails!

My first game was one of the Law and Order games. I'm a fan of the television show so I figured I would give it a shot and got hooked. My second game was Still Life, one of the best games I have ever played.

When i first bought a PC a family friend drop by and gave me the Tex Murphy-Pandoras Directive game. I remember i played it several times. That was my first game and the trigger to love adventure games smile

As someone has mentioned before, I have spent many days
typing in the simplest games in machine language from
gaming magazines on the Commodore 64 I purchased
for my children many moons ago.
Frogger & Spy vs Spy were fun to play w/the kids,
but text only adventure games held my interest
even back then.

I can still remember typing in a game in the BASIC language from one of the magazines. It was called Bagels, and it was a guessing game. You had to find the correct 3 numbers from 0 to 9 with the only clues being Bagels, all guesses were wrong; Pico and Fermi, one meant a guess was right and in the right place, the other that a guess was right but in the wrong place!
