#600 - The unofficial introduce-yourself thread
« on: April 21, 2003, 06:25:00 PM »

Yes! I got the 600th post on the board!!!! Medal! Medal!


Well, uh... Hi. I just wanted to ask a question (start a mini-survey actually):

* how old are you all?
* where are you from?
* what is your occupation?
and
* what is your three favourite adventure games?

I'm the one who started this survey, so I'll be the first to give it a go: I'm 21, from Denmark, and for the past year or so, I've been teaching basic computer science to staff members at municipalities and medium-sized businesses. In september, I'll begin studying computer science at the University of Aarhus. My three favourite adventure games are Monkey Island 2, Beneath A Steel Sky and Larry Laffer Looking for Love (in all the wrong places)

Well...
I'm 23...
From Greece...
I'm a graphic designer...
Monkey Island 1, Grim Fandango, Monkey Island 2, Hero's Quest (the old 16 colors version with the text parser!, I don't like the 256 colors version with the icons).... That's 4, I know...

EDIT: some stupid typos

OK...
I'm 26 years and 10 months old,
I'm from the Czech Republic,
I'm a programmer (surprise! surprise!),
and my favorites are: the Gabriel Knight trilogy (ok, I'm cheating by counting them as one game :-), KGB (aka Conspiracy), and... hm, can't decide for one... Broken Sword, The Last Express, Spycraft, Black Mirror...

All right,

it's me! Timo! Jerrot! TJ! Whatever... so here the facts:

* I'm 28y (*damn* I'm *OLD*!)
* I live in Northern Germany
* Working as IT developer (well - internet programmer !), I'm programming web frontends and content management systems, databases, that sort of... ! Using the internet before the WWW became modern, published my first mailbox (sort of bulletin board system) on an Atari 600 XL and a telephone and some glue... oh don't ask! :)
* My favorites: Dunno. I'd say DOTT, Broken Sword, Monkey Island 1-3 ;-)

Uh, no, I like so many adventures... can't say for sure these three (five...) are really my favorites, but I love them anyway.

See Ya! ( (c) Alien Mindbenders )

My 3 fav adventures:

Hhehoa, never realized there was this kind of "get to know other forum members" thread, so here goes...

I'm 20 (soon 21)
from Finland (No, there's no polar bears walking in the streets)
Currently my occupation is office secretary (or officewhore if you prefere) basicly it means that I do all the shitty work that no one wants to do. And there really is a reason why they are called shitty work... But luckily in fall I'm going to start my studies in computer science (whee!) and no more office work for a long time!

EDIT:
Oh of course I forgot to mention the games. Well It's really difficult to put them in order, but I really loved countdown, monkey island series, blade runner, lure of tempress, hero's quest (or quest for glory1 if you like), both simon the sorcerer games (the 3d was crap), space quest series, lost files of sherlock holmes, willy beamish, the list is almost endless...

Whoops, sorry Odnorf for the big delay, but this is the second time I check this post ever (the first was when I wrote what I wrote). Well, "baccalaureate" is the english for the spanish "bachillerato" (or at least that's what the dictionarie says... The baccalaureate is the level between secondary education and university. Hope I explained well, my english isn't good either.
