    Hey every one,

    Do you have any recommendations on point and click adventure games? Old and new games are fine, it doesn't matter to me!

    If you don't mind playing older games then search for "The Longest Journey"...Great story, challenging but not extremely difficult. TLG originally came for win 98 and when I tried it on xp it wouldn't load. But I'm sure there's an xp compatible version out as well.

    Check out "Still Life" if you like detective stories and mystery. Great game...

    I've also enjoyed playing Runaway: A Road Adventure and it's sequel, Runaway: Dream of the Turtle. Those two were designed with a more comical approach and cartoon like grapphics.

    You can of course check out the "Myst" series of games, note however that they are really tough to complete.

    Black Mirror and Syberia 1&2 are good games if you are just starting playing this genre. They are quite easy but fun too.

    The most recent adventure I've played was Overclocked: A History of Violence. Good enough game.

    I'll post back with more titles if you're interested. :)

    Cheers!

    Besides the already mentioned, Black Mirror. The 2 others that I last played were, Barrow Hill, and The Experiment.

    If you are intrested in free online ones, Mystery of Time and Space kept me interested for a few hours. www.albartus.com/motas

    DerekC if you liked Black Mirror you may want to try other games by "The Adventure Company"...

    Nibiru was a nice 3rd person point and click adventure, it reminded me a lot of Black Mirror. You can also try their newest game, Reprobates (I think it's marketed as "Next Life" in the US).

    Cheers!
