Nancy Drew Mystery Adventure Games TOT Sale

Recently I was talking to two older ladies (on two separate settings) about new things. The first lady I tried to describe a new food that I liked, but she didn’t know what it was. However, her first thoughts and previous understanding of it swayed her opinion to declare she does not like it or had any interest of even trying it… I found this to be discouraging! As a sleuth like Nancy Drew, trying new foods (even if they have weird names) is part of the great experience!

What foods did you think were gross until you saw it and tried it?

The other lady had strong opinions an old-fashioned health matter I mentioned – but she said twice to me that she hadn’t researched the pros and cons of this old-fashioned method in comparison to today’s modern medicine. Yet she was already determined to be set against it.

This got me thinking about old games verses new games, even though it’s a totally different matter than health and food. New games in the game industry get so much attention, reviews, and are talked about how great (or not great) they are.

What about old games? Would you consider trying a really old computer game if a friend or family member recommended it? Even if the graphics aren’t as good, and the story is simpler? Just think! If a new Nancy Drew player refused to play Treasure in the Royal Tower just because it has old graphics and was released in the early 2000s!

What are your thoughts? Would you try new games? What old games do you like and would recommend?

  1. I don’t think it matter Little Jackolope what the the graphics are like or how old the older games or the newer games are, I love them all no matter! The important things that matter is that the games stay wonderful and you guys keep them coming!

    The Cluefinders. I know it’s a really old game, I believe it was around the early 2000s too! But I really liked it, and it was a really nice game for that time, despite what some people think. Definitely a favorite of mine 🙂

    Hey LJ!

    I’m interested in buying a Nancy Drew popsocket for my phone. However, they don’t ship to Canada. Are they going to be available to ship to Canada any time soon?

  4. I adore seeing your engagement ring and your wedding ring on the Twitch Stream! Your wedding must of been beautiful! What was it like? I was in a wedding once, I was a bridesmaid in my eldest brother and my sister-in-law”s (who are the ones mostly who get me the games!) wedding, my dress was brown and I had blue crystal dangley earrings and a matching blue bracelet!!!! What were you and Mr. Big Jackolope’s colors?

    • Little Jackalope says:

      Being in weddings is exciting! I was in my friend’s wedding a couple of weeks ago, too. My wedding with Mr. Big Jackalope was Teal and Ruby Red with hints of gold. We did an old-fashioned movie theme – red carpet, fake Academy Award statuettes and everything!

    Well, i wasn’t born in this era but the original Spyro for the PS1 was absolutely fantastic. Same thing goes for A Bug’s Life for PS1. LEGO Island 2 is also fantastic. As for new games, i’ve loved so many new games that have released, but very few do i want to go back and play again. And when i say very few, i mean like maybe 1-2 of the 60 or so games i’ve played. One game in particular stands out in my mind as it’s one of the greatest games of the modern game era is called Abzu. It’s a scuba simulator, but with story and i can’t say enough good things about it.

    The first game I ever played was Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego? It was a great history-themed game and I would recommend it to anyone.
