Meh, I actually deleted my post by accident. I was going to edit it, but clicked the wrong button. :p

Anyway, don't take my sarcasm as an offensive tool against you. :p

Besides, The Last Express is my real sacred cow adventure game. (Get it on GOG, not Steam. The Steam version is a tablet port and has some annoying changes). But it's also 2D and older than 2006. Gemini Rue was just some game I've played through once back when it first came out.

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

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


Well this is something you don't see on the internet every day.

I was going to suggest Phantasmagoria but you want decent acting from most of the cast...

the game is actually pretty twisted and dark as get out even had a bit of controversy around it but it was a decently solid adventure game.

I liked Gray Matter. It's by the same person who is the game designer of the awesome Gabriel Knight series. It's not as good as the other series, but still worth playing.

Honestly though, the best adventure games -are- the older, pixel ones. The newer ones with new fangled graphics and all don't grab me as much as the classics.


I'm happy for you friend, as you have so much more to choose from. I'll probably check some out months from now. But they're not what I'm looking for at the moment.

Can you tell me a bit more about it perhaps?


Well it's good you're not one of those people who shun anything 'old' and that you would actually want to try some further down the line.

As for Gray Matter, it's hard to explain. Basically it's about a neurobiologist named Dr. David Styles who has become a recluse after losing his wife in an accident. Along comes the other main character, Samantha Everett (student and part-time street performer), shows up one day and unexpectedly becomes his assistant in regards to an experiment he's working on. The experiment starts out fine enough, but then strange things start happening and you control both characters to try to find out the cause of it all.

Ok, I'm back

MarceloSampaio: I didn't take offense in the slightest. I saw them as you poisoning out how ridiculous I was being. Again, thank you.

ChromaticAngel: Thank you for acknowledging what I just did. It's good for my morale.

pothocket: Sorry that I acted so irrationally without knowing what was going on. Allow me to do what I wish I had done, and ask you, did you read what I said about the whole 2d thing, as I stated that it's just not something I want to experience at the moment. I'm on the rpg board all the time, and I deal with a lot of people who will only play 2d japanese rpgs, and constantly wax about how bad change of any kind is, and as a result I wanna distance myself from a lot of games with an older style for a while.

As for professional help, I actually see a counselor every couple weeks. She along with my girlfriend have worked wonders, as I USUALLY end up with more rational responses, and me flying off the handle isn't anywhre near as common anymore. I can USUALLY let things go, but today was another exception.

Again, I'm really sorry.

A choice of playstyle without balance is no choice at all.

I didn't see a response to my post, so I'll suggest again... The Longest Journey?

No 2D sprites... it's 3D models on hand-painted sets. It's a bit older game, so the models may not be super detailed, but they are 3D. There's good voice acting, mature story, not riddled with comic relief (which you seem keen to avoid right now), and it's just really a good game.

TLJ: Dreamfall is the sequel, and a similar game, with more detailed models and stuff. I still liked the story in the original better tho.

I have one final suggestion for you, TC

I admittedly haven't played for very long, but it's another one that hits all your points, although the quality of the voice acting is a little spotty.
