Just a heads-up for Guess The Game freaks:

In the "Can You Solve This Riddle?" thread I'm attempting to start a round a riddles based on computer games.

The aim is to name the game that the riddle describes.

The first one is currently up and unanswered.

Can you drop a thread link for the lazy?

Hmm...maybe I was thinking of a different Infogrames game. I don't remember it being so ruddy in appearance!

I won't be able to remember the name, but is it a little known Infogrames title that came out a few years after Alone in the Dark?

A Simple Plan?

(edit: and a look at the Varsity Blues wikipedia entry suggests to me that perhaps the link is the name "Billy Bob"?)

Wow! Didn't think anyone would get it from that obscure screen cap. And yes, Billy Bob was the link. Nicely done - your turn!

Alright how about this one. Bonus points if you make the connection between this and the images of Varsity Blues shared earlier. (laugh)

Looks like Aerosmith's Amazing video. Was it some game based on that?

Nothing quite like an EGA image trying to look like a photograph! So much grain in that you could make bread. (laugh)

I think I know it but I can't remember the name. Is it some 80s movie where the computer is the guy's friend and they ...solve mysteries or something?! (laugh) (Hope that helps someone else get it!)

Flight?

And by the way, I had the boxed 'Out of the World', which is probably worth something now on account of it being recalled and retitled!

Delphine's "Another World" was very important for me, when i was 13. Because i completely identified with the main character; i felt i was banished in another world. My parents divorced that year, and there were other issues too. :)



Wow, yeah good call - I would say the same. I had to use a walkthrough that I found on dialup, but even then it was a LONG and extremely hard game at times. The very end when he flies off with his friend to a safer unknown... I think I remember being choked up.

Another for for me a year or two earlier was Quest for Glory 2. There was something about the uniqueness of the Arab landscape, the desert, the quirky characters, the city of Shapeir, the RPG randomness (i.e. you don't have to quest every day; some days could be devoted to character development.) I finished the whole game without any hint and I remember feeling super accomplished but very sad when it was over, like it was a moment in my life I knew I would remember as iconic. The game ends with all characters paying tribute to you, and I know there was a bit of dust in my eye at that point. (laugh)
