Point and Click

Post by the_b1ues » Sun Apr 28, 2013 8:18 am

Im a huge fan off the point and click / Adventure games. What system would does everyone think as the best range of these games?

Yep PC has the full range, or use Scumm on a Mac or other system.

Yes it's quite obvious PC has the best but if you had an Amiga back in the day you certainly wouldn't have struggled to find good point and click games.

Most recently I've been playing Gemini Rue on the PC. Pretty standard point and click but like every good game of this genre the dialogue and storyline make it what it is!

Anyone remember Stupid Invaders on Dreamcast/PC?

Hard to look past PC, though it's nice to see recent systems such as the Wii and DS offer a few games in that genre.
