That is a very good question and a very hard one too... Let me think....
Well i don't really enjoy sound puzzles or music puzzles and i really hate puzzles that in order to solve them you have to go from one place to another. I think i prefer slider are color puzzles... headscratch

I just wanted to bump this up because it is such a great thread.

Just thought of another puzzle I hate.

Trying to find the shut off button on the alarm clock after being rocked out of a sound sleep. whistle

The game of "real life", I think. <g>

But while we're on the subject, and while I know there are a lot of very bright people here who revel in this sort of thing, I'm a complete dunce when it comes to figuring out sequences. Do I ever dislike those!

Yes, Star, Gil is right. That particular puzzle is from Real Life, the one we all experience daily.

Sequences, Gil? As in this game after this game after this game?

I'm not sure I can explain this clearly but say you're pushing buttons to get all the parts of a puzzle to light up or get level with one another or show the same image. It's pure luck if I manage it because I'm dreadful at working out the order in which I should push those buttons.

I enjoyed the puzzles from both Safecracker games

The one that gave me fits is the Drawing (or trying to) of a Pentagram in one of the Dracula games (Drac 3 I believe). I am useless at drawing a simple picture with a pencil let alone trying to draw a picture with a mouse.

Well, Umm, I am retired and the only time I need an Alarm clock is when I have an early Doctor's appt. or any other appts. or commitments, otherwise my Alarm clock sits in the Corner collecting dust, so you see, that's why I didn't catch on grin

So you don't recall any plans to shoot your alarm clock or drop it from a great height? <g>

I can't imagine anyone saying they liked that awful pentagram in Dracula 3!

Hi traveler,
How quickly did you draw it or how many tries did it take?

Re: Alarm shooting the A.C., nah, I now look at it as reminder that I no longer need it except to know the time of day.

I couldn't do it, Starcom. After trying until I was half crazy (now you know what's wrong with me), I got a saved game, I think from Savegameserver, and went on from there. I'm just not fast enough or coordinated enough anymore.

Favorite or hardest. It's hard for me to have 1 without mentioning the other. The most difficult puzzle may not be my favorite but after solving it the satisfaction you feel shoots that puzzle right to the top of the list. BUT...that being said i think one of the best times I had solving a puzzle was "The Channelwood Age" in MYST because for me that was ONE BIG PUZZLE all connected together. Took me forever but LOVED every minute of it:)

From Journeyman III Legacy of Time. Getting all the tokens from the Buddahs in Shangri La. Navigating the steam tunnel was very difficult for me! I have a cheat map drawn so I can do it a little easier now. I just love it when I hear Arthur say "I'm detecting a sudden change in temperature" - indicating you have melted what needs to melted down there and can go get what you need to.

Frankly I feel a sense of accomplishment whenever I complete a puzzle (difficult or easy) and am able to progress. happydance

I remember having a lot of trouble with the spit competition in Monkey Island 2. That game had some great puzzles.

Oh, sometimes I wish there were no walkthroughs to this day smile Too hard to resist. When it's important for me (for example, with a game like Gray Matter, to which I've been waiting for 5 years), I actually have to sign an imaginary contract with myself, that if I use help, I'll forever hate myself smile

Yeah, walkthroughs were once as rare as finding a diamond in your backyard. Everyday.

Now, after so many have played existing games you can find those diamonds. Everyday.

I've used walkthroughs only after the third month of play. I figure there's more to the game than the current location, and time to move on.

I try, try, not to use walkthroughs because I don't want to ruin the fun experience. But sometimes it's just a bit much when I see a clump of hair in one of my hands, and know there isn't much left.

Please stop talking about losing clumps of hair eek
Having just replied to another of your posts on the subject, I was beginning to think my eyes were going too.

It's become a very thin topic with me, Mad. Not only is there more ventilation on top, forward progress is sometimes delayed while visual input is recalibrated. whistle
