Hi! My name is Catnip (Beth). I have been playing computer adventure games since DOS. In high school, we received two desktop computers when personal computers were first released to the public, and I was one of the two chosen to learn how to use them and teach the others. I was hooked. The first game I played was a text game called Zork. The first game I played with graphics was "The Colonel's Bequest," with Laura Bow as the main character.

Now, I play adventure games, casual games, console games, RPG's, you name it.

I've been on several gaming forums, but I haven't participated in a while. Gelert and I are old friends via the web, so decided to join this site. Smile

Hello, and thank you for the very kind welcome(s)! Very Happy

I'll definitely post over in casual games, ML. I own so many of them and I play them just about every day as a stress reliever. Especially time management!

It's great to see you, too, JK! cat

Thank you, Hatshepsut. You are my favorite Pharoah, by the way!

Gelert and I have been friends for so long -- I'm just happy that I gave him my e-mail address so very long ago -- I think it was at least 2001. What a beautiful forum he has made, and it looks like he has taken the best of other forums and brought them here, along with much-needed new ideas!!! I haven't seen the grues yet, but that's probably because of my trusty lantern! I never go anywhere without it!

GreyFuss is very protective of his image as a mean ole Grue. Given the nature of grues I think we can say he bites. Just stay out of the dark corners and you'll be ok Smile

Hi. I'm Linda and I like mostly all cartoony games. I like the old point and click games. Some of the first person games make me motion sick, so I try to stick to third person games.

some of my favorite games are:
Simon the Sorcerer 1
Broken Sword games
GK 1 and 2
Day of the Tentacle
All Monkey Island games

Thanks for letting me be a part of this forum. This looks great.
Linda

Hi Linda it is spelled hatshepsut. In ancient times Egypt was divided into upper and lower Eygpt and was referred to as The Two Lands. Smile

Hey, my name is Bastos...

I am playing PC games, from the early 90... and off course a heavy fan of adventure games.
I have been collecting them for about 10 years, although I have been slowing down the last years....

Nice to be part of this adventure community...

Hi Bastos and We have a friendly little place here and I hope you enjoy your time here with us. I've been seriously playing and collecting adventure games for about eight years now. I'm mostly playing older adventure right now. What are some of your favorites?

Hey hatshepsut,

thank you for the kinds words. I have been collecting adventure games from around 2000, so about 10 years now.... One of my favourite games ever is Rise of the Dragon, it was also the first game i bought, that was around 1993 i believe.
But there are so many more that I like... especially games from Lucasarts, but also some other oldies which were more unknown ... like The Dark Eye

L8r!

hi everyone
Lovely to see friends here that I've traded & chatted with throughout the years. Smile
I started out playing King's Quest 6 - I think. Needless to say, 5 & 7 are also some of my favorites. But Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Father really started me pc gaming. I also like 2 & 3 of the series. And Blackstone Chronicles, Sanitarium, Syberria 1 & 2 and one of my favorites is The Longest Journey. And tons of others.
I also like casual games - HOG, match 3 & IHOGS.
