Default Your BIGGEST adventure sins!

Ok guys - i've never finished Grim Fandango and i've never played Gabriel Knight 3.


There you go, i had to tell it to someone. I feel so much better now, thank you. I may be a sinner, but on the other hand - such classics await me to play 'em for the first time!

Your turn!

Say three Our Fathers and ten Hail Marys. Your sins of omission are absolved. Go in peace.

I quit Dreamfall after ten minutes and never returned. I am soooo ashamed.

Broken Sword 1 really bores me. But I loved Broken Sword 3!

I've started all three Dark Fall games but have never finished any of them.

Mine are legion:

- Never played a Gabriel Knight game
- Never played a Tex Murphy game
- Quit Syberia after two hours, never played Syberia 2
- Until last month I had never even heard of The Last Express
- I seldomly resist the call of the walkthrough when stuck for five minutes
- I don't think liking Escape from Monkey Island is a sin


I'm going straight to adventure game hell...

Oh my God! I'm deeply shocked.

You got off VERY lightly there TimovieMan!
This is Fien's usual punishment for those of us who sin against The Last Express:

Thanks, Oscar. That's me to a T. An outstanding example of your subtle and mature humor.

PS: A pity you never joined the GAG playthrough, you would have loved the humor.

You may be right about that, and it would definitely have been better to have had you there to explain to me all the dirty jokes I didn't understand!

P.S. I couldn't find the similar smiley with chunks of dung instead of bricks . That would be the right one.

I often play adventure games while reading along with the walkthrough opened up next to me on my Kindle. I played through The Last Express like that.

I reckon in her case it's more like "Haven't played TLE this month!" .

Now, on topic: I'm not sure if those are sins, but I didn't finish GK 1 (stupid bug! ), never started a Tex Murphy game ever and I've played Sam & Max Hit the Road only seven times Name:  opanachke.gif

There are plenty other adventures I never got to play (and I plan to) but it would be too long a list to bring it here.

My friend So There would probably pour a couple of buckets of pig sh*t on me to hear I often use UHS Reader hints and MaGtRo's walkthroughs when I'm stuck in an adventure game (specially those I didn't like ).

That's it from me in a confession booth . For the time being.

My dear Diego.
I apologize for what I am about to say. I know how hard the truth must be for a blackhearted sinner who hasn't even finished one little Tex Murphy game. My dear friend... I have no adventure sins. None. My soul is as pure and white as snow.
Your devoted friend,
Fien

I have never played any game with the word 'Quest' in the title...
Have not played Last Express...
Hated Dreamfall...
Haven't played any Tex Murphy, Indiana Jones or Kyrandia...
Only played the first Myst and used a walkthrough...
Liked GK 3 better than the first two...

And maybe worst of all... I enjoy HOG's...
