I haven't read all the replies in this thread, but I just have to say that I think adventure games span all generations. I have a friend (son of a friend) who is 17 years old and he loves to come over and talk games with me. He played the Kings Quest games and just loves them, also Torins passage, and a couple of others. That is what is cool about adventure games.... I play with my grandsons who are 5 and 7, and they just love them too. I have found all the people on every adventure game site really helpful and want to help and are just all-in-all great people. I think in shooting games, or role playing games, where you text people, there might be some animosity or name-calling, or maybe just a lack of respect, but adventure gamers are the best!!

There are always a rotten apple or two in the bunch ! I play fps & rpg games . I don't encounter that problem , but then again , I don't play online games . Adventire games tell a story , almost always a good story ! I love a good story !

Hello everybody! Very Happy

I discovered this interesting and nice site for adventure games through the Adventure games coalition link.

I am from Rhodes-Greece and a great fan of Adventure gaming.

My favourite Adventure Games are mostly the 3rd person pont'n'click adventures with cartoony graphics. Of course I like the 1st person perspective adventures too and the FMV adventure games. My favorite ones are the old Lucasarts games, Broken Swords, Gilbert Goodmate, Black Dahlia,Ripper, and other games of that type.

I also like old and new games. Age is not a problem!On the contrary, I would say that the older ones are a little bit better.

Welcome, tsampikos,
I also like the older games better, but there is one almost new game that has the same style of adventure and I enjoyed it very much, like I was back at LucasArts and playing Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis! It came out last year about this time: Lost Horizon, the best game in a long time in my opinion.
Back in 2008 there was a good game, Diamonds In The Rough, that was made by Atropos Studios, Athens, Greece and founded by Alkis Polyrakis, who unfortunately from my point of view, is no longer making games. Maybe you have played this game, or his freeware game, Other Worlds?

Hi mindysue!

I agree, lost horizon must be a great game, i have heard only positive comments about it, that's why I bought it and Is in my "games to play" list. I somehow think that this game should be similar to the old Dynamic game of 1990 "Heart of China". Am i right or wrong? Wink Well, Alkis, is still definetly interested in Adventure games, I do not have Diamonds in the Rough yet, but I have Other Worlds. It's sure that if Alkis hat a greater budged both of the games would be much better than they are now. But still they are both mentionable efforts. Many of the new games are good but many other lack of innovation and ideas. I think that Daedalic, Pendulo and especially Telltale Games are on the right track. The Adventure games scene needs games like, Runaway, Next big thing, Hector, Back to the Future, Jack Keane etc. and in general games with crazy scenario, fun and new ideas.

Hi tsampikos,

Yes, I would say you are right in thinking Lost Horizon is a lot like Heart Of China, which I played years ago and still fondly remember as being a great adventure. Both are games that made me want to keep on playing when I reached the end, like I just didn't want to leave their adventurous world. I don't get that feeling with every good game I play and enjoy so it doesn't happen all that often.

You say you have Other Worlds, but you didn't mention playing it, so I'm wondering if you played it, what did you think of the ending? I played it back in July, 2006 and I'm still haunted (maybe not exactly the right word) by the ending which was totally unexpected by me, but did fit the story very well, maybe too well for me? Many scenes from those other worlds are still in my memory bank and for a free game, made by Alkis when he was quite young, that's something.

A really good freeware game is Flight of the Amazon Queen. It should be good since it was a commercial game that was later released for free. I found that out after I played the game and I tried to email the maker of the game to say how much I liked it when I learned the email address was no longer valid. Seems I was too late and the game was a lot older than I realized. Yet another game from the days when adventure games were just that: adventures, not a lot of technical advances hyped up to be something special. BTW, I am not a fan of Myst and its clones! To me they are puzzle games, a different breed entirely. Good in what they do, but just not my type of game, that's all.

Yes indeed, Flight of the Amazon Queen is great. It can be played both in DOSBox and ScummVM. I have except from the freeware version of the game, also the retail one (CD Version) of the middle 90s. Myst and similar games are also not my favorite ones, but I try not to ignore them. Wink

Flight of the Amazon Queen is one of my favorite games. You can also get a free download of Flight of the Amazon Queen from DotEmu.com I would recommend it to anyone who hasn't played it.

I really enjoyed Lost Horizon too.
