Me neither. Never finished them anyway. And I also don't like Sam and Max and some other Lucasarts games.

Brothers!
Hey, me too! Is it really a sin? Talking of other sins...
I never played 7th Guest or 11th Hour or most of the Myst-like games, and I'm not planning to.
I also played through The Last Express using a walkthrough.
I think Roberta Williams is a really bad game designer.
Oh, and the most important one: I hate Samorost.

*Well I never managed to finish Dreamfall, because I got a new computer, got rid of the old one, and didn't want to go through almost the whole game again. One of my biggest sins Name:  sigh.gif

Size:  1.5 KB I really hope I'll play it again, and finish it this time.
*I find both GF and DotT to be hideous (no offence to people who like it)
*I still didn't manage to find time to play both Gabriel Knight and Broken Sword series. Name:  sigh.gif
Views: 506
Size:  1.5 KB I really ought to play them soon
*I use walktroughs from time to time if I really get stuck
*When I don't have much time to play real AGs I quite enjoy playing casual games
*I never finished Post Mortem because it got too boring for me

Why would liking Escape From Monkey Island even be a sin?

I've tried to play Bad Mojo, but never managed to like it.

I've only played five minutes of Sam & Max Hit the Road, then I had to quit since it was so boring.

I like Sadwick's voice in The Whispered World.

I love mazes!

I haven't played some of the LucasArts classics like Day of the Tentacle, Maniac Mansion, or Sam and Max Hit the Road.

Also, I don't think Telltale's work is all that great. They hit the nostalgia but the gameplay is very dumbed down, at least in my limited experience.

Man, there are a lot... Never played Last Express, Still Life, and several older games. I tried Tex Murphy but my computer doesn't like it, and never tried Dreamfall or Broken Sword 3 and 4 because of the action/interfaces. I couldn't work out Myst!

Aaaand.... I thought the last two Simon Sorcerer games were okay...

The graphics were the only thing I liked about Book of Unwritten Tales.

My biggest sin is that I peek in the walkthrough a bit too much often when I have the game with intriguing and tense story on hand.

My second biggest sin is that I'm absolutely spoiled by visual appearance of the particular title because of what I still haven't played hailed-by-many titles like Gabriel Knight, Grim Fandango and Discworld Noir. Thank God that remastered versions of the first two Monkey Island games came out.

Personally, I think the graphics are one of the strong points of Grim Fandango. Maybe you just don't like animated skeletons. You could be sprouted for that.

And the music! Oh, well, the look, the music, the whole thing. The only thing that still drives me nuts is trying to get up a certain doohickey and out of the ocean.

These have pretty much been mentioned already but

*Never played the GK games or The Last Express
*I use walkthroughs more often than I should or at least UHS
*I enjoy Escape From Monkey Island & Monkey Kombat
*I often use God Mode in action games

I don't consider playing casual or HOGs a sin. I enjoy them too. Never thought I would, but I'd never make the mistake of putting them in the adventure game genre.

Not many game specific sins as I tend to like most adventure games... well, how about that I didn't like Myst and similar puzzle-esque games that feel a bit empty to me?

My main sin is that I use a walkthrough for nearly every AG, usually for logic puzzles that my brain tend to seize up on. Games like Gray Matter and Broken Sword I I didn't need a walkthrough for though.

*I never finished The 7th Guest because I couldn't get past the blobby microscope mini-game.

*I didn't really enjoy and didn't finish The Longest Journey.

*I didn't really enjoy and didn't finish Syberia.

*I think the reason for the previous two is that (with the exception of The Lost Crown) I don't care for third person games.

*I'm not above using a walkthrough if I get stuck to the point of frustration.

*Bittersweet game endings sometimes make me tear up.

*I occasionally use Nigel Danvers phrases in conversation with strangers in the hopes they'll notice and we'll talk adventure games. So far no one has noticed.

That's all I can think of for now.

Got bored of "Syberia".

Could not get into the humor of the "Monkey Island" games or "Grim Fandango".

I will never hesitate to use walkthroughs, since I play for the story/characters, and if I get stuck on a puzzle to long, it stops being enjoyable.

Non-Adventure related:
I disliked "Morrowind/Oblivion", "Dragon Age", and "Beyond Good and Evil".

I can second some of these. I liked Monkey Island 4, though I admit it was the weakest game of the original series. And I agree about Roberta Williams, though I might replace "bad" with "overrated". Also, Sadwick's voice was perfect for his character.


And a few new ones:

I liked the endgame puzzle of Obsidian. And had no trouble with Sanitarium's endgame.

Black Mirror and The Moment of Silence seem to be beloved by a lot of adventure gamers, but I found them to be average overall.

I have never been able to get into the RHEM games. (Which is a major problem for a guy like me who normally loves that sort of game.)
