I haven't played any recent games either :(
My favorite recent game is Grim Fandango, which also happens to be the most recent game I played... just show how much I'm not in touch with The Scence :P

Jason -
Is there going to be "Grim Fandango 2"? I don't see how they can make a sequal to that ???
Not to mention it's hard to believe they'll even consider making another adventure :-\

I believe what Cris meant by recent, was not as recent from the release of the game, more like you recently played. I believe.


And I agree with Q and Neil :P ... do our flash games count?! :P cuz that's the only recent thing I played! :D

Well, if that's what Kurt meant... ;)

The most recent one I played was KQ6, but that was more for "work". ;P

The most recent one I played for fun... uhhh... that's actually been a while! :( I think it might have been "Beneath a Steel Sky".

I don't like most of the new adventure games. Although I can think of a one recent(recently played) game that MIGHT be close enough. Arena, it's a RPG, but I like the riddles. 10 years old, but it's free  ;D

It's at Arena

The emulator that makes it(and almost any DOS program) work on almost any OS(like Windows)
is here
Windows- Dosbox

Everyone else- Dosbox

P.S. KQpong is WAY too fast, I don't think it would be fun if it was any slower though.  :)

Never played any of those.

Closest thing to an adventure game that I've played recently was absolutely amazing.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.

Hahaha, unless the "adventure" is bouncing Connor's head, munching pills, eating mints, or zapping rosella... I don't think they count.  XD

The most recent adventure game I played was KQ2+ by AGDI.  I wouldn't call it my overall favourite, but I guess it's my "recent" favourite.

I don't think I will. I'm sure he's better at it than me, but I think I'm doing alright(I made it into the top 10, for now at least).

P.S. I still think it's WAY too fast(and I still think it should be that way  ;D ). Can anyone here actually follow the head(on the bonus round)?
