I Hate Arthur

Ok, I'm just gonna jump right into this before my internet dies.

Arthur's Computer Adventure

Ahh, crap. I have infuriated the Wheel by being away for so long. This should be semi-painful. Well... let's get this over with.

Suffice to say, as a kid, I loved Living Books. They were just fun, I loved the concept of playing a picture book, and finding the hidden games and experiencing the characters in such a one on one way. Ahhh... well, I have to say, the concept hasn't aged well. I could not find one scrape of fun out of this game. There is not much to say about it, it was just boring edutainment. Was to boring to even bothering getting a screenshot.

Still, as with Calculating Crew, I could see a kid playing this game, and enjoy it as much as I probably would've if I were still ten years younger.

Blah, lets move on.

4.9 says Gametap.
I say 4.
23, out of now 963 games, complete.

Ok, Wheel, I like you, and I hope you like me, so lets put past discrepancies behind us and find some common ground to be friends again. So, let us go.

Oh my god.

Arthur's Pet Chase

Ow. This hurts me. Wheel, why? I thought you were my friend, man! This is just mean. I mean, the probability of me getting ANOTHER Arthur game was very low! So, it HAD to be you! Glargh, you meanie.

Ok, whatever, it's a sidescroller game in a dreamland, with the Arthur license on top of it. Not fun at all. Stay away for your own sanity.

Tap says 1.6.
I say 1.
24 out of 963 games complete.

Computer Adventure is another one I've played. I think the wheel chose it for me, too, so it must like that game. You have to admit, it was KINDA entertaining, if not a game at all and not worth keeping once you're done with it.

Also, I used to have the Tortoise and the Hare Living Book. There was this mosquito on most of the pages that you had to pixel-hunt for. That was fun in its own way.

Scary, although you are an inspiration. I shall be rolling the wheel of death every night now. If I can fin it in between Planescape:Torment times.
