I think you're wrong there. 5 Days and 7 Days have the graphics and the gameplay of the old style adventure games, even though they were made 3 years ago or something, they feel like they were made 13 years ago during the time of Monkey Island.

I'm talking about gameplay, not graphics.

I was also talking about gameplay, while also including graphics.

I meant that graphics might look old(but they don't imo, just compare them to LoK), but gameplay hasn't that old feeling.I can't describe it.Just play LoK, or any sierra classic, and then play 5 days a stranger or that other title, and you'll notice the difference!

Just my imo k: :bye:

If you are referring to Legend of Kyrandia when you say LoK, then yes I have played it and the second, and I have played 5 Days and 7 Days and personally I felt or saw no differences.

But that is my opinion. k:

Freeware: Yes as long as we stick to the best games. There is a lot of bad freeware out there that just doesn't need to be on the site. There are enough sites already that offer a huge range of freeware games of all standards!

Shareware:
It's evil and unnecessary.

Agrred with this entirely. Some freeware = good. Most shareware = bad.

Well, would you rather prefer to buy games / programs without knowing good enough if they're worth it?
I don't have anything against shareware on my own, but I'm still against it be put on this site. About Freeware games, I agree, only the best of them if at all.
