Good question!

I become hooked on many games I play, but quite recently it was Dreamfall: TLJ.

If I go further back, it was Gray Matter. That game weaves a wonderful mystery and totally immersed me. I couldn’t stop playing it and finished in about 2 days.

Gabriel Knight 2 three years ago, I played it all day long. Same story goes with The Lost Crown. More recently, I couldnt stop playing Callahan’s Crosstime Saloon.

And these days, I am completely hooked by Umineko no Naku Koro ni (but it is so long, that I am playing it for a few months already Smile)

I would grab a plate or bowl of a selection of my favorite foods and sit at my comp happily for hours.

If one counts Portal 2 as an adventure (I didn’t think if it as such when I was playing it) then that might come close. I had at least one late night trying to pull myself away from that one. (The first Portal I didn’t leave the computer until I finished it, I think, but that was years ago.)

Realistically, I just can’t get away with that kind of focus these days. Too many people in the house wanting the computer, and I get up at 5 AM most days, so late nights aren’t too practical. I used to be like that with a LOT of games, adventure and otherwise, but these days it just doesn’t work out that way. I have fond memories of immersing myself in Myst games until WAAAAY too late at night, but those days are gone. Maybe when the kids all move out, or if I ever retire…

I think it was either The Lost Crown or Sherlock Holmes vs Jack the Ripper, back in 2008 or 2009. If you count replays, it would have been a replay of Uru a couple of years ago. Like some others, I don’t have that much time to play games anymore.

The 2 games that got me REALLY hooked the last time was when I played Tex Murphy Pandora Directive and GK2, 1 year ago. For some reason I skipped these games in the 90’s, because I didn’t care for FMV’s back then. I am really glad that I gave those games a chance last year.

i really find it awesome as well…
i hope AG would support it with a great review and supports Simon himself with his 1st great work/achievement on ASA ...
for me i do think/consider him one of the nicest Developers (down to earth) around.

i would also consider ASA as a Success for the AG site ,which (if its for me) should honor him (and to be honored with such a talent within it’s members) and may exclusively present ASA with some special coverage plus an exclusive Interview with him .
(that i am sure it is something which Jackal already considering)

if i am not mistaken Simon had shared his progress with ASA here at the AG Community Activity before anywhere else and waaay before the Game’s publishing/release…

Can not wait for a new Adventure form Simon Mesnard

There have been several games that got me hooked in the past.

The most recent one was Time Hollow on the DS. Gripped me from the first minute, and I finished it far faster than time actually allowed me… Tongue

The one before that was To the Moon. Finished that in one teary four-hour session… Smile

This is one long list…
However, the most rescent one was I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream. And before that, The Cat Lady. And before that, Resonance...
There are still a dozen games on this list, but these were the most rescent ones.

Bad timing. We started the community playthrough yesterday.

Both games were joyous.

The last adventure game that REALLY got me hooked was probably Stacking. If we’re talking evolution of the genre that’s the route I want it to take.

Well, recently I can say I got pretty hooked with gemini rue, resonance, GK1 and pandora directive. But it’s still not the REALLY hooked way I felt when playing as a kid. Maybe now I just can’t imagine spending 5-6 hour sessions a day on a game. Actually I did play the cave in a day but that’s not what I meant Smile
Another thing about adventures is that you get stuck from time to time which is a perfect natural way for not getting really hooked up and end up playing the whole game in a short breath.
My last really massive game addiction (with all the “forget to eat, sleep, study, socialize and think about anything else”) was not an adventure due to reason mentioned above. It was my first time playing fallout2 7 years ago. sweet memories.
