The best type of adventures
« on: August 19, 2005, 04:05:16 AM »
Hello, plase forgive me if I had written something bad or in the wrong orther, I´m spanish. :P

I think the best adventures are the new 2D desing adventures, because they are like classical 2D adventures but with better desing and effects, and more colours.

But the best of the adventures is the story, (I think that in English we can call "story" the quest of the main character, in Spanish is "historia","trama"...), is the most important.

Greetings. ;D

Hiya! :P I think the classic 2D graphics rule. :P To me, it just makes it feel like an adventure game. Though I don't totally hate KQ9's graphics. :P

I like the way we do them in KQIX, which is similar to Monkey Island 4 style. 8)

I like cartoony adventures like KQVII, I also like what I've seen of KQ9's graphics. Moe is ugly, can't stand it. If the 3D is done well, I like it.

Hola Heaven!

I like cartoon games such as KQ7. The graphics are good, and they are fun to examine, especially when moving from one scene to the next.
My namesake is the one you'll love to hate
Maybe it's because she's different--not the same
And such an identity satisfies my artistic brain...
I love King's Quest!
It's insane!

The classical 2d...I didn't care for the cartoony style of KQ VIII just because none of the others had been done that way.

I'm not sure wether to go with the first or last option, because KQ5 and 6 were good but Grim Fandango was also great :D
