Watchmaker. I'd heard extremely mixed reviews of it but picked it up really cheap off ebay so figured I'd give it a go. hated the controls and the voice acting was so terrible... and the plot? the intro was pretty boring and the story very cliched but I stuck with it and found myself quite enjoying it despite the flaws

also Blade Runner. I must be one of the few people who didn't think too much of the movie, it wasn't bad but it certainly didn't, in my mind, live up to all the hype and glowing reviews. the movie also didn't scream "adventure game" either so I expected it to be more action oriented with a few adventure bits thrown in, especially since you could shoot your gun... but no, I got it as a gift and gave it a try and found it to be one of the better adventure games I'd played at the time, and one I still consider a classic
Playing: Edna & Harvey: The Breakout
non-adv: Oblivion (very heavily modded), Planescape Torment
recently finished: Gray Matter, Alter-Ego, Whispered World
