    We’re talking Myst style right? Yeah, I would say the most stumped I’ve ever been in gaming period was in the beginning of Myst. Though I was a lot younger, and less open to that style of gaming.

    To me its King’s Quest V, since it was my first one when I was young. Every bit of it amazed me. I have fond memories of the dessert part, when I found an oasis after dying a lot.

  • RamonXick

    this game seems Myst-ish a lot which is good

  • Almost shameful to say but as far as point and click games go, the old Spy Fox PC games would stop me dead in my tracks as a kid.

  • RNDL1996

    Scribblenauts at first because I didn’t know how to play haha

  • darkcitadel

    The 7th guest and the 11th hour games were some of the more rewarding and frustrating games I’ve played, though most of that was due to glitches but there were quite a few stumpers on how do I solve this puzzle.

  • ErixSan

    Well… Fist time I played Sam & Max, didn’t know how to play it 😛

  • madare

    In Dream (first person point&click), I’ve yet play 5 hours because I can’t find the solution of a puzzle…

  • wildbillhickock

    all of those game where you have to find the objects

  • When I was small, I spent months trying to play Myst, and couldn’t get past the first area. I wish they had Google back then……

    Lately, Fable 3 was difficult, not technically, but because you had a lot of choices between doing something really, really good or really, really evil, and there were serious consequences either way. And there were very few middle grounds.

    I’ve been stumped by Myst, back in the day…

  • jdkl85

    Most point and click games usually stump me eventually and I end up having to look up the answers for most of the harder puzzles. I was ok with the beginning of Myst, but got lost pretty quickly on my first play through once starting the first side area.

  • Leon

    I am able to complete most games that have puzzles but I had to look online many times to get past parts of the Myst series.

  • Angel9RakouCobra

    I got stuck practically everywhere in Monkey Island as a kid. I was young then and never even got past the poodles at the beginning (easy now, and I’m stuck somewhere else instead). Probably didn’t help my game wouldn’t save for some reason.

    I think I was most stumped when I was playing Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail for the first time. It was one of the first games I ever played and I didn’t know English very well then, so I just didn’t know what to do.

  • killerpigg1

    never been stumped on a point and click game because i never played one

  • Matenshi

    I guess the most stumped I’ve been was on how to unlock Bianca in Chrono Days. You have to play the piano in a certain way, and I never figured out what tells you the code; I just looked it up.

  • Darklurkr23

    Machinarium past like the 1st screen. Entire game was Youtube XD

  • BenWylde

    Deponia, the main character resembled myself so exactly, gosh it was like I was lookin’ into a mirror, scary but also quite funny :3

  • The most stumped I’ve been I think was the “rubber ducky” puzzle in The Longest Journey, it took me days 😀

  • tackhawk

    Myst was fun and challenging, but it was doable. So was Myst III: Exile.
    Riven, though? I don’t think a single person has ever beaten that game without some kind of cheat book or outside help. That game still gives me nightmares.

  • ropes

    Bad Mojo, I was terrible at those games and still am not that great

  • George Kot

    OMG, about 1/4 into The Whispered World, I was completely stumped and had to resort to Youtube walkthroughs almost the entire game. On one hand, I really wanted to finish the game because of the vibrant graphics, sound, and story. On the other hand, it was VERY DIFFICULT! I had no choice, I swear!

  • Angel9RakouCobra

    Just got the email. 🙂 Thanks again!
