Hi everyone! Nice to see a few familiar faces names Smile
I'm a big 1st person puzzler fan (Myst-like). There's not been much available for the likes of me recently. The few new 1st person games around have been mostly suspence/horror, and I prefer fantasy.
Some of my all time favorites:
Real Myst, Riven and Myst 3
Riddle of the Sphinx
Tex Murphy
Obsidian
Black Dahlia
Rhem series - Knut Mueller is my hero!
Gabriel Knight series (one of the few 3rd person games I really liked)

Games I'm looking forward to:
Rhem 5
Amarhys
Code Name Hypnosis
Braken Tor
the new Tex Murphy (I'm a backer for the game)

Hi colpet. Smile It's great to see you again. With your taste for 1st person games, especially Tex and Rhem, I can guarantee you that you'll feel very much at home here.

hi colpet, I definitely remember you from the gameboomers forums. I'm glad to see you posting here now also. If you get some spare time, you may want to look through the 'Adventure Database' which is accessible through the main page of the Adventure Point website. You never know what games might strike your fancy that you never heard about before. Very Happy

Hi Colpet,

I share your taste in games. Hopefully we'll see all those you've listed and more. I was interested in Coven, by Arberth Studios, the developer of Rhiannon.

There's a trailer on YouTube.

Unfortunately it seems to be delayed again according to the developer's website.

Hi All,

Couldn't resist when I was invited -- great to find out about one more fascinating adventure game site! Been adventuring all my life, both textually and graphically, also kinesthetically (physical challenge) as well as nonkinesthetically (no physical challenge). I probably won't be writing here that much due to my constant lack of time but will be browsing whenever I've got a chance. What I do, then? Well, I research adventure games, lucky me.

About game favorites, send me a message and I'll give you the top three of today. A promise. (Unless I'm not on the road.)

Hi fisu and a very warm welcome to Adventure Point. Very Happy



By the way, we have another member here from your neck of the woods Gunness, and he happens to be a very VERY big fan of IF too. Take a look in the Interactive Fiction section of the forums. He has posted there quite a bit.

Regards,

Gelert

In academia (and game journalism) people tend to use the term 'adventure game' to refer to all games with a story. But as most people reading this agree the classic adventure does not challenge the player physically / psychomotorically, which is a thing quite hard to explain to people who have never played classic adventure games. How can you distinguish poetry from prose to someone who has never read the former? Well, I'm trying, and 'kinesthetic' feels like a much more usable word for games with action elements than 'psychomotor' -- there is in fact hardy any 'physical' challenge in most videogames, sports are physical!



My second message, and already got the philosophical gear on..

Hi, I'm Grant. My favorite adventure games are Star Fox Adventures, Metal Arms: Glitch in the System, the Metroid Primes, and Mushroom Men. Metal Arms is a shooter, but I'd say the story mode was definitely an adventure. My nickname in middle school was "G-rant". I started making games then, and I still call my company "G-rant's Games." Things I like besides games are most types of animals and pretty much all forms of art.

I've only finished 2 games (one is a non-violent adventure and the other is a shooter.) Most of my work in progress games are platformer or shooters though.

Welcome G-rant. Anymore, there are a lot of cross genre bleeds for games. Shooters with adventure aspects. RPGs with action aspects, etc. While some dislike that trend, I think it's fine. Sometimes that is how new genres get formed (like Tower Defense games).
