Have you looked at The Longest Journey? I don't recall that it's *fully* voiced, but there's a large amount of voice acting, and it's quite good. What really got me with that game tho was the story... I really enjoyed the story, and it actually had a twist or two that managed to surprise/impress me, which is notoriously difficult to do. Overall, it's my all-time favorite adventure game.

Gemini Rue. It's 2D sprites though so **** you if you got a problem with that. Your loss if you pass this one up.

This game hits all your points. Fully voice acted, post 2006, and no 2D sprites. Textures are pretty sharp, too. The game is either really easy or really hard, depending on how much optional stuff you do. You'll get a score at the end based on how many objectives you accomplished. It's loosely based on real life events.

I'm quite calm actually. I just don't appreciate being lied to.


Its not that I was lying though. Maybe we just have a different way of looking at things. To ME, games like Tesla Effect and Pandora Directive are games that DO take themselves quite serious. The storyline in Tesla Effect is quite serious, and is full of intrigue and mature themes.

Tex Murphy IS goofy and smart ass, but I don't see him as a comedy relief. Heck, I see him more as the type of person who is constantly trying to break the ice in very immature ways, which is acceptable considering that he is usually drunk.

Its not that I was lying, thats just the way I see that game. Other than the few moronic lines he throws, I see Tesla Effect as a very serious and interesting game.

Heck, even a game like Gabriel Knight had some comedy elements that felt a little out of place. You'll find this on Gray Matter too (just in a more discreet way).


ANYWAY, have you tried the Still Life games? The first one is from 2005, but it actually looks quite good. And they aren't ALL bad. Don't go play them expecting AMAZING games, and you may have fun with them. And the story is actually quite good. ^^

Hey pothocket, I'm gonna go out of my way not to play it for at least a year.

Not because I think it's a bad game mind you, I've actually looked into it, and it seems promising. I probably would have played it a few months from now actually.

I'm specifically not going to play it just to spite someone so blindly obsessed with their sacred cow that they didn't bother to read what I said about me and my current state with 2d games that they told me to screw myself.

Thank you for reminding me that the best way to hate a game is to deal with someone overly obsessed with it that you end up wanting to be nothing like them.

So thank you for keeping people away from a game that you love.

Here is another good game that hits all your points that I forgot about until just now. I don't know why people are finding it hard to hit all you bullet points. There are plenty and adventure game fans should have played at least several.

You have problems and should probably seek professional help if you haven't already.

ChromaticAngel, bonus points for providing a link. The game sounds very very promising, and I'll make sure to check it out, especially since it's apparently on my shared steam account :D

MarceloSampaio: Perfect way of explaining yourself. You make a very very good point.

I myself watched the 48 hour movies, and I honestly thought they were really dark dramas with a few jokes mixed in before my girlfriend told me otherwise, and even though it's labeled a comedy by the studio, they don't feel like them all to me since I can't even figure out more than a few moments in them when you're supposed to laugh out loud, and it's the two extremely compelling characters that make me love it.. It's just a matter of perspectives really.

So yeah, I'm sorry man.

Oh, and don't take this as an attack on you, but you mentioned Still Life, and I just had to respond to this. Please, don't take this personal.

Still Life made me HATE the genre for years. I'm sure there's far worse offenders, but it's the worst fully voiced adventure game I've ever gone through personally. The voice acting alone kills it for me, although the presentation is a complete nightmare as well. Ironically, it's one of my girlfriends favorite adventure games, and she's currently playing the second one. meh....

Yeah, I actually agree...

However... how are you feeling now? I mean, he is NOT gonna play Gemini Rue, JUST to spite you. I mean, are you ok with this? How are you going to sleep tonight?

How will you be able to keep living, even though Superrpgman will NOT play Gemini Rue because of you?? Man, YOU'll need help!!


*sighs* Point taken. I'm being really immature here.

I'm gonna cool off, and come back in an hour or so.
