Wow. A 6 year old game in the Top 100. That's very impressive.

(This is not sarcasm).

There's also Paradise on 70th place.

So, 4 games in 85 software products (the rest are hardware) makes... 4.7%! We're back in business!

Hmm, if TLJ sold that well, and it was a true adventure game, why make his sequel so much less "adventure-ish"? Are they that greedy!? Damn shame.

Erm, I think you've got your chronology mixed up, Aurebesh. If people are buying TLJ now, it's either because they've played Dreamfall and want the first part, or because they want to play it before playing Dreamfall.

And, Aurebesh, please stop posting comments about how Dreamfall is not and adventure game, there are already too many threads ranting on about it, we dont need another one.

And I'm glad TLJ & DF are nice and high on that list.

Just to clarify, the Top 100 list changes everyday. It represents the top games according to recent sales on Amazon.com.

It seems TLJ is being bought up by people who were just now introduced to the series through Dreamfall.

So we're supposed to be happy that only four adventures made it?

Well, judging by the "popularity" of adventure games these days, yes, we should be glad.

Even though adventure games' "popularity" is at a minimum, 4/100 is pathetic regardless.

You have to remember that the list is for ALL platforms. I think 4 adventures is pretty damn good.

Well, I'm just wondering why TLJ2 was so viciously ripped from us and handed to non-adventure gamers? And, like I said, greed is my first guess. Probably not artistic decisions or anything of the sort.
I would much rather see Ankh in that list. Great game from great people, yet it seems it was pushed aside because of all this Dreamfall hype.

You won't see Ankh in amazon.com's charts because it's not available in the US yet.

Nope, I don't think there is a single thread that is safe from being hijacked by the Dreamfall/adventure waste of time topic.

Hmm, he asked you to stop, and what do you post? Why, it looks like the opposite of stopping, to me! Stop.

Considering it sold poorly, I don't think it's supposed to be on there.
