    Most complicated game ever played ?

    What game or games have been the most complicated, frustrating and time consuming you can remember, any platform, n64, PSX PC etc. It could be games with millions of keyboard functions, levels that you had to retrace your steps to get answers and move forward in the game, whatever ? For me, one of the most frustrating was Kings Quest 7. DD.

    Falcon 4 gets my vote; lots of keys to press to get anything done.

    The hardest game I have ever played was Crystal Key. I think it was made for children under 13. Since I am over 13 I can't play it. I could not figure that game out for the life of me.

    System shock was probably my most time consuming and difficult game.

    Was an awesome game with all the hacking and stuff in it.

    Agree on System Shock 2, but also X-Com Apocalypse. Nevr. could get the hang of it aswell as Jagged Aliance 2. Not even to mention Myst and Riven......damn hard puzzle in there.

    Flight Sims are easy compared to Sub Sims.

    Fast Attack. (Try the GIUK senario: Hunted by a Tu-95 Bear while trying to destroy two Russian subs.)

    688I Hunter/Killer. (Easiest of the two)

    The most complicated and time consumming game I remember was Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders by LucasArts. I played it for 7 monthes!
    Good luck, Igor

    ARC (Attack Retrieve Capture...) since about 1998 I must have spent around 3840 to 4000 hours playing it. It's about the equivelent of 4 months straight w/o sleep or rest.

    I think Shadowman was a very complicated game...I'm talking about the N64 version. I've never played it on a PC but I heard with all the complicated controls it isn't very good. I played it for...I don't even know...it was soooo long! But I finally beat it!

    Not true! The PC version is great, Controls OK! It's long, but not boring!

    You seem pretty young to be searching for that kind of fun!
