    Jazhara7 has it right. One of the best (and only, unfortunately) adventures games of the past 5 years.

    So true, Ziad. Although I also quite liked "The Black Mirror" (the german voice acting was brilliant. I heard the english was not so good).
    But TLJ was probably the best.

    Here is my quote:

    "Clarity...above all, Clarity..."

    I don't understand what was so great about the Longest Journey and I never will understand. The story was boring, puzzles were also boring, characters uncharismatic and the voice acting sucked. While I have played most of my adventure games through atleast twice, the longest journey is the only one I haven't even considered about installing after completing it.

    Well anyway that was quite a lot offtopic but I just had to comment on that one. :p

    Well I'm quite lost with that quote though since it's only three words which do not tell me much, but since I posted something here I felt I might as well try taking a guess, and my guess is KotOR.

    No, it is not KOTOR. It is a much older game. And it did not sell that well (though a certain company produced it) *cough*adventure*cough*


    [Offtopic]
    It is probably a bit much to say that TLJ was the best game in the last five years. But it is certainly one of the best. There were many other good games released (okay, not that many. But some), and I won't even start on the Amateur Adventures (like "5 Days a Stranger"...oops, I better stop...).

    And anybody who dares insult TLJ, has to first fight the official Looney of the DIVIDE (Me).

    Yes, it is LOOM! This is said by Master Goodmold of the guild of Glassmakers, in their guild city Crystalgard.

    Your turn, Takara.

    The clues gave it away. Never bought the game myself though.

    I cant really think of one at the moment, so here's a softie

    That compass in the handle will sure come in handy too.

    Monkey Island 2? 3?

    It does sound like a Guybrush moment.

    No, none of those. But it is an adventure game.

    Hint: The character has a fiery temper.

    It wouldn't happen to be the Edison son (who collects stamps) in Day of the Tentacle? I doubt this is it since the guy plays such a minor role in the game but I he comes first into my mind when we talk about fiery temper. ;)

    You mean Ed? No, it's not him. It's no game by LucasArts/Lucas Filmgames.


    I think I'll add this: The quote is from the second game of it's series.

    The problem is that the quote could be from about any adventure game there is. Well I'm going to say Discworld 2, don't remember anyone there with a foul temper but it had a various number of "special" characters so one of them had to have a foul temper. ;)
