Usually when I get super stuck in a game to the point of horrible frustration I just stop playing it and move on to something I enjoy instead. At first I used to feel a little bit like I was a quitter when something like that would happen, but then I had an epiphany. I don't play games to do a frustrating chore, I play games to have fun and be entertained. My leisure time is a heck of a lot better spent doing something fun and enjoyable that banging my head against a wall.
Very smart words and very much heeded. I think in reality, the games jeff has made are good but the only series i find fun and can enjoy is the avadon series. Avernum is cool but its a create a party rpg and i hate those games. Im hoping that in the future jeff makes more games like avadon that the regular guy can understand. Avernum is simple to understand but those create a party games just aren't fun for me.
Bah, Avadon and Baldurs gate will be released in 2 months, no worries.
