Now to rate the demos

Hey guys, do you consider Indigo Prophecy an adventure game, or just some interactive movie?

i think in this case you would have to decide for yourself (see my problems along this vein below). though perhaps having other people's input could help - having never played that one, i don't know what to tell you.

i do have a question or two: Quest for Glory 1: So You Want to be a Hero is more of an early RPG than an adventure game, however i would still rate it rather high in my list of adventure games. and i don't really want to even include TLJ2: Dreamfall as an adventure game as it really was more of interactive movie (going from cut scene to cut scene cue without at least a puzzle in between is not my idea of fun). even the developer didn't want to characterize the game... however, if it was on this adventure game list, it would be low on the spectrum (beautiful or not).

any thoughts?


(oh and do underground games count?)

I'd include them both, if only for the pragmatic reason that so many people who played them do call them adventures (even if you disagree), that you excluding them would needlessly skew the results.

It was established by Trumgottist that they don't. (Some people disobeyed this rule, though.)

Now this thread passed on to the second page for the first time. I looked at its contents and decided that we do have enough posts for me to bother compiling the results. But it would be nice with more voices (the more people taking part, the more interesting the result will be), so consider this a last call. If you haven't posted your opinion in this thread, now is the time to do so.

  11. Monkey Island 3
  12. Gabriel Knight 3
  13. Conquest of the Longbow
  14. Beneath a steel sky
  15. Dreamweb
  16. Black Mirror

It's a great game When I get my new computer I'm gonna replay (for the first time since it retailed) it in DOSBox. My current laptop doesn't allow for that... :-(

Glad to hear that I always love to read through the logbooks (even though i read them thousand times ), when those prisoners describe their days in the cells. Its really depressing...
