    I'd heard kids were expensive...
    The paid DLC and microtransactions are a killer though.
    Pom poms at the ready, cheerleaders!

    My GF loves their games but I can't play those hidden object games - they drive me crazy.

    60 plus games in their catalogue, keep them coming is what I say smile

    And I'm not allowed to play them unless my wife is around, cos she likes to beat me finding stuff in the hidden object scenes.
    LOL!! I think we're married to the same woman.
    wow this must be a wife thing because my wife is the same way, she doesn't really game but she LOVES point and click games, especially these ones with hidden object scenes! laugh

    I'm happy for the easy GS but these are turning into cookie cutter games.

    I'm a big fan of these games, but it's starting to look like medieval fantasy and ghosts is all they do. I'd love to see a sci-fi or historical rendition of the formula.

    I like these games to unwind sometimes, mostly they help me fall asleep. I realize that's damning with faint praise, but being sometimes prone to insomnia, I really do appreciate them!
    I'd say the stories are forgettable but that's probably as much to do with me.

    No, the stories are totally forgettable and tend to run into each other. How many times have we rescued someone who was kidnapped because they look like someone else now? I've lost count.

    Oh good! It's not just me blacking out then. I'm playing one right now as a matter of fact and if I had to summarize it, it would be "Something... something... Fish". But I've fallen asleep to it five times.

    I should probably read books instead, but they actually keep me up.

    Yeah they ant bad games by any stretch but once you have played one they are all pretty similar. I skipped 99% of the cut scene's and just blitz thru the achs. Playing most twice is a chore because nothing changes on the 2nd playthrough

    What's even more distracting is the fact that it's basically the same woman voicing the main protagonist every single game. I do sort of like them but for god sake get a couple of different voices.

    (Obviously sequels must have same voice or that would be equally as dumb)

    I also like the second playthrough ones just trying to speedrun them by pure memory is fun.

    I started enigmatis ghost of maple creek and can't finish it... I have like 2 of their other games... But I struggle to enjoy them...

    Maybe one day I'll get into the mood and play and finish them all.
