Just keep feeling proud because you were "clever enough" to get past the dead-ends and it will all work out okay. You must be really "clever" since you have managed to do all that on your own. Such an achievement.

Sure, taking on the challenge by consulting a walkthrough that removes the "challenge." My, I love how people pretend to challenge themselves, and say they don't play "simple games." I'll keep that in mind next time you ask about a dead-end.

Nighty night to you too, dude. Guess you are good and gone. Work in life, not in games. You might achieve something one day. Hopefully a tiny bit of respect too. You might also try to learn what a discussion means, and maybe what an argument is. Have you ever wondered why skipping school is a bad id...

Wow. Talking about insulting and let me remember how you put it..."sting in my sharp tongue" well you definitely need to get rid of that... I see a dead-end is all that exists in your life and I don't know how you came up with that flower but your statements are way past being overblown no...

Yep basketball is a game, but you can eventually earn respect, and probably a bit more if you become really good at it. Working hard in an adventure game with dead-ends won't earn you respect, it is much more likely that it will make you laughing-stock if you tell somebody you played a computer game...

First of all, three people are not all people and if you scroll back to page one you'd see a few more people that tend to dislike dead-ends. If you have been focused on me only, now is a good time to go back to page one, or even consult the subject of the topic as a reference. Dead-ends in King's Qu...

Well in the end, it all comes down to taste. Some people wouldn't even consider playing adventures or watching movies, outdated or not. Yet that dreaded dead-end reputation speaks for itself; I know that for a fact as I've seen many people experience it, and it is certainly a major let-down for the ...

Well let me ask you a simple question. If you at a certain point in your time play a black and white movie, assuming your equipment is not broken, does it go to its end? Actually it's two simple questions. You start a dead-end game, you press play, you hit a dead-end in the middle just after you've ...

That is true, but you are forgetting that you enjoy the movie in its entirety regardless if it's black and white or not. In other words, the movie flows freely. But in a dead-end game you get stuck and the flow is stuck. And if you are persistent you will keep being stuck for a long time if you disl...

I didn't say they didn't do anything right. I just suggested that dead-ends alienate a lot of people and were definitely not the way to go. The very fact that people keep coming asking about how to avoid the dreaded dead-ends says enough about these games' unfavourable reputation in that regard. Tha...

Sheesh I wish you presented more arguments instead of commenting on my personality. Yet, your statements only confirm my initial belief that you are only interested in insulting others instead of keeping up a good discussion. And mate, saying that I got issues to solve is going a bit too far when we...

Doomer, your mind seems to be set on this. No need to subtly insult others. Fact is, times were different back when most Sierra games were made. And also, there was no internet back then and I solved all of them without walkthroughs. You know, through you - excuse me if I say so - rather narrow min...

By the way, I'd get rid of the sting in my sharp tongue if I were you. It's supposed to be a friendly board. Hmm that pretty much sums up your ideas. I never offended you, nor suggested that you are being unfriendly. It was merely a discussion. Seems you are something of a self-proclaimed authority...

Right again. Saying that King's Quest VI contains only 1-2 dead-ends is the same as saying that 15 Days could have won the Game of the Year award. Saying that both statements are wrong is the least justice you can do them. Kq6 contains at least 5 dead-ends and 15 Days coudn't have won the game of th...

And that article only strengthens the point of dead-ends in the I forgot to pick it up section with only a small alternative caveat. So Ron Gilbert and a few others figured it out back in 1989, while Sierra kept their antiquated dead-end game-design in 1992 with King's Quest 6. Undoubtedly that arti...
