The Kings Quest series were my favorites for adventure games in the good old days. Hmm...Monkey Island was also fun.

She likes that Spider Solitare, and that Russian Squares games that comes with Plus (I think), and of course any variation on Tetris, or anything even remotely similar...hehe

Russian squares was fun.

And tetris is the best game ever.

Seriously.

(Only the ORIGINAL gameboy version, of course. Without the trademark music, there is no point in playing)

I'll take Dr. Mario over Tetris any day.

My girlfriend doesn't really like games, much, unfortunately. I got her Grim Fandango, which she played about halfway through (that game cracks me up, as well as Full Throttle). About the only thing she ever did play was Bust-A-Move on the Playstation. Bah (not that Bust-A-Move isn't a great game).

I DL'ed the demo.
I hate these type of games...it's called "find the hidden spot on the screen to click on"!
WOOHOO!
Don't forget the logic problems...

Q: You are stuck in a room with no way out. There are 22 seemingly useless items in your inventory. In the room there are 6 objects that can be interacted with, none of which have an obvious purpose. Some items in your inventory may be combined to form a new item, though you have no way of knowing which without trying. Write down the maximum number of combinations of mouse clicks on items and scene objects you will need escape from the room.
