What was the first ags game you ever played?

For me, It was Larry Vales. I then remember playing a bunch of games I can't remember, but Larry Vales is the one that sticks with me and probably the one I tried to imitate at first...

So, I pose this question for you, what was your first ever ags game (that you played) and how do you think it has affected your game creation (if at all)?

Larry Vales also, i remember playing i guess an old demo with roger and i think a car (but not the same bg as the current demo has) that was before i joined the community though.

edit: the demo i was talking about can be seen here: http://people.freenet.de/lucasfangames/agsdesign.jpg

edit2: "and how do you think it has affected your game creation" well, like LV3, my game is unfinished ;)

Hmmm.. I think it was "The Island" ;D

But I have no idea how it has affected my game creation...
I used to make games but then I took an IRC in the knee.

Rob Blanc!
Which, by the way, STILL ROCKS!

After playing it, I E-mailed Yahtzee and asked what software he used. He sent me a short, but polite message giving me a link to the website.
The next day, he had to send me another short, polite E-mail telling me that the technical forums were the best place to find help...not him.

And that turned me into the prolific game-creator I am today...

My first AGS game played, was The Uncertainty Machine. After playing that, I was so excited about AGS, but then I found out that I picked the best game of AGS as my first played game :P

It did not really effect my way of creating games, though it did gave me the vision, of once making a equal if not better game than TUM, wich probably won't happen ;)

My first game ever was Demo Quest.  If we aren't counting that, I think it was Pleurghburg.  I think I actually spelled that right.  I think Demo Quest affected the way I make games by making me realize how simple things went together to make the game as a whole.  Pleurghburg was important because it gave me some plot inspiration for my current game.  Coolness.

My first game was King's Quest I VGA by AGDI. Though I don't really count that as my first AGS game as I didn't even think to what the game was made of. The first game I played when I *KNEW* what AGS was, was Larry Vales I.

I guess it influenced me, because it was a popular and fun game, and taught me that you didn't need super purdy graphics to make an excellent game.
I make music.

The first demo quest and then Rob Blanc 1.

I don't think it affected my game making any, because I'm making an RPG.  :D
Once I killed a man. His name was Mario, I think. His brother Luigi was upset at first, but adamant to continue on the adventure that they started together.

The first AGS game I ever played was "The Uncertainty Machine"
Back then I was using AGAST and I was like "Dam AGAST is rlly hrd, man!  I wi5h th3Re wuz sumthng esier 4 me!" (That was how I used to type.  Now I am sane.")

Then I played TUM and I was like "I enjoyed that game immensly, perhaps AGS is the way to go for me."
And so here I am now.


I'm younger so I have never played any of the old sierra games, (Don't ban me from the forums! :-[)

The first PNC adventure game I have ever played was Out Of Order from SLUDGE (Shareware!  Boooo!!!   >:()
I fail at art.

Either King's Quest 1 remake, or Norman Cooks, though it was probably KQ. I remember finding both those games in a cd that came along with a Greek mag.  

Whichever the game was, they introduced me to AGS, and I started thinking about making my own game. One year and several cancelled projects later, I still haven't finished a game, but oh well. :P

(edit) Where is my mind?
I forgot to mention that the fact that Norman Cooks was created by a Greek guy kind of affected me, I think. The idea of a community which had members of my country sounded more appealing, I guess.

I just wanted to ask, did no one have Permanent Daylight as his first one ( when you were still innocent  :D).
Since then, I'm sticking to 2ma2's web site, tho' he never updates it...
But every update (used to) mean a lot to me :))).

Anyway, about the affection, well 2ma2 is what i look upon as a row model in this adv. making. But, maybe thats because I saw him first...
And I must say I didnt play too many AGS games after... :P

Heh.. Floyd SB was my first too  ;) . Though I think I played Rob Blanc 1 around the same time.  I remember I was really impressed with both, and wanted to make my own Sci-Fi/Comedy game, but that never worked out  :P. To be honest, I don't think they have muchinfluence on me anymore, since it's been so long (about four or five years) since I last played them.
