When was the last time...
« on: March 11, 2007, 12:15:29 PM »
There has been a marked increase in the amount of adventure games being released on PCs and consoles recently which is an encouraging trend to see!

The last adventure game i got was The Longest Journey just under a year ago. Not the second one mind, I'm still to finish the first one! I'm looking forward to picking up a few of the ones coming up on the DS soon though. It seems as if click and point adventuring has found a new spiritual home :)

The last one I actually bought was KQVII... don't remember how long ago that was, but it was definitely well over three years.

But I have downloaded a number of adventure games over the past year. :)

I just bought Baulders Gate so officially I should choose the first but I chose 3+ year because I finished it years ago when I borrowed it from a friend and when I saw it for $10 I couldn't say no. Aside from that I think I've only bought one game it the past 3 years and that was SW Battlefront II and I wouldn't call that adventure.

Within the past year, when I bought the King's Quest Collection. ;D

Edit: I take that back I bought the original two broken sword games even more recently.

IIRC Dreamfall: TLJ was the last adventure game I got. I don't quite remember when I got it, but I think it's between 4 months and 1 year. Or,  it could also be KQIIIVGA. My most recent acquisitions are MMORPG-games.

The last time I paid for a computer game... lemme think...
IIRC it's was over 10 years ago, when I bought Zork Nemesis and Little Big Adventure 2. Even then it was just because they were on sale :P

LBA2 turned out to be a big disppointment. When I started playing I found it's actually an action/adventure, and the battles were too much for my lack of coordination - this is why I haven't finished it to this day. I also didn't like its graphics, plot, puzzles and gameplay, and thought the game generally sucked... well, at least it was cheap :P

Zork Nemesis proved to be a much better investment :D

Whenever it was that Still Life came out, I got that...(It's "eh" for an adventure by the way)...I'd like to get Dreamfall....but my computer doesn't meet the requirements.  :'(  The NEXT games I plan to buy though are Runaway 2, Sam and Max 2 when its out in boxed version, Simon the Sorcerer 4 whenever it comes out, and A Vampyre Story...By the way, I suggest everyone take a look at A Vampyre story, especially if you liked the style of The Curse of Monkey Island. I'm VERY excited for it.

Ooh A Vampyre story looks really good. Any idea when it comes out?

Its been a while since I played Dreamfall but from what I remember it was really good, though maybe not as much as the first game, and the end is a cliffhanger. But worth playing for sure in my opinion.
