Find the common denominator!

Just thought of a new little forum game that I think could be fun Wink

The rules are simple, you name three games that all have something in common, and whoever guesses the correct denominator gets to post the next challenge!

The denominator can both be something concrete, like a certain developer took part in the development of all the games, it can be related to the plot like “trains”, or be more abstract - but try to refrain from challenges that require mind-reading of the questioners mind or speaking fluent Esperanto!

The games might have more that one thing in common, but only one is the correct answer!

If it haven’t been guessed within a reasonable amount of time, the questioner should add more games with the same common denominator, or if you run out of games, more direct hints until the correct answer is guessed!


Let me get the ball rolling:

What does these three games have in common?
The Longest Journey - The Raven - The Last Express Crazy

That’s fun! (And close to an idea I had that never materialised because I’m lazy.)

Alright, I think I know: They all take place aboard trains, except TLJ!  Cool


If that’s not good enough… maybe… the protagonist is hunted by the police?

That’s an interesting idea! I’ll have a guess that the common denominator is possibly birds?  Smile

Great minds think alike Cool

It isn’t, and that seems to be true… but is not what I was thinking of Sarcastic

I was indeed thinking of: Crow, Raven and Firebird!

Your turn Chrissie!

Nice idea, Izno!

Chrissie,
The main characters in those games have amnesia.

I’ll steal Kurufinwe’s joke:

Game protagonists wear a hat, except in Space Quest 6!

Grin I haven’t played SQ6, but I’ll guess that all games feature a parallel universe.

Advie got it right.  All of the main characters become very small during the game.

you have to be precise there no ‘or’ here, but anyways dont sweat it, it not the right answer Tongue

very very close, but still not right, go more general from the Templar Knights think about the same time and era. , i would ve accepted it but because Lost Chronicles of Zerzura has no Templar Knights mentioned.

again there are no indications about Jerusalem at Zerzura Frown
