    Seems like that video game genre doesn't much exist anymore. Am I the only one still in love with it? There are amazing games such as The Longest Journey, Syberia, Broken Sword,... icon_biggrin.gif

    Isn't Diablo III coming out soon? I think sometime in March, I believe. Are you talking about that point and click type of game?

    Oh no. What I'm talking about is games that you play as a character through a mysterious story. You interact with others and solve puzzles to move on in the story.
    Not a lot of people are familiar with this type of game icon_biggrin.gif

    I actually just finished The Longest Journey. Amazing game, and I was stunned by its quality considering the time it was released.

    I haven't played much point and click games at all though. Broken Sword was among those I actually finished. Another one was something I downloaded off the internet, it was a remake of an 8-bit classic I think, and pretty good.

    I've also played Escape from Monkey Island and Myst but never bothered to finish them (more because there was still no home internet available at the time, so I had nowhere to turn to when I got stuck).

    Still, I have moved on from those games though. They are still entertaining, and feature some of most amazing storylines in gaming, but yeah... they kinda pale in comparison to modern game graphics.

    Actually there is something about the graphic that has more life than other games, to me personally. And yes, the Longest Journey was an amazing game. Great story, great graphic. I have to recommend Syberia in case you haven't played it.
    I agree you do need the internet while playing because getting stuck happens quite often icon_biggrin.gif

    I played one of the Mysts.. the end was anticlimatic as I have ever seen.

    Now, Phantasmagoria was gooood. Anyone remember that game?
