Solty Dog: I say Shadowgate, The Uninvited and Deja Vu. I know those weren't popular with my friends.

I still don't know anyone else other than me that beat shadowgate.  I freaking loved all three of those games... and got grounded for covertly calling the nintendo power hotline to find out how to get past a part in shadowgate.

Alphax: GypsyJoker: Vodka Zombie: Alphax: Montezuma's Revenge.. I had the Apple IIe version, and lots of friends and family played the crap out of it.

HHGG text adventure.  Played it, but never finished.  Fairly creative, but it got especially complicated after you get to trigger the Infinite Improbability drive.

I don't know anyone who's finished HHGG, but almost everyone has played it.

Yeah.  The Infocom games always had at least one action that you'd probably never figure out on your own.   HHGG had the sequence where you had to throw the mail into the air (assuming you brought the mail with you) to distract the flying robot, then do a couple of other things in succession, in order to... hell, I don't even remember why you did this one.

Great fun, otherwise.

That was the VERY challenging part to get your hands on a Babelfish.  Trial and error.

The Babelfish was comparatively easy. The nastiest puzzle was feeding the dog at the beginning of the game. If you don't do that, there's a scene near the end where you automatically lose, and have to play the entire game over again.
