Oh Mags…

Yesterday, I finished my first replay of Last Window. Even though it’s only been a couple of years, there were a lot of things I had forgotten about, so it was great. And I really, really love the mood of that game and its overarching theme of people coming to terms with the past.

Cing’s demise is one of the biggest tragedies in recent years.

Ain’t that the truth… Frown

Well, at least we’ll always have Another Code, Hotel Dusk and Last Window. And even Again wasn’t all that bad.
Actually, I’m having a hard time deciding which of their three classic DS-titles I found to be the best. They’re all very close to each other in quality…

Last Window might just win the photo finish by a nose length, though. Great game!

Apart from Ghost Trick and the three classic Cing-games, most great DS titles are closer to visual novels (relatively low on gameplay but high on reading). If you don’t mind that, then yes, the DS offers at least a dozen really good adventure games… (obviously there’s going to be a lot more than a dozen - just ask MikeKelly - , but I’m talking “really REALLY good” here)

It’s no coincidence that six of them made the top 100 last year!

I agree. They could be doing some great things on the 3DS and WiiU…

Still have to play Again and Another Code R to finish their adventure games.

Same here, I need to at least try one. I’m still turned off by a few things, namely why do all the games look the same with the same text box and hand drawn portraits. And I’m not really into visual novels. Would rather read a comic book in the park.

I have actually only played Another Code, and that was when the DS was new and it was hype. I remember that I liked that game, but I didn’t play much more games on my DS after that.
