TLJ was the best! especially now

TLJ is my favorite game, but it embodies a completely different approach to gaming than DF. It is dated and comes from a genre where games were rated by their puzzles, not by storytelling. While it was the story and music that captured most of us, there were all the obligatory puzzles and the tiring task of running back and forth. Remember how long it would take just to see Burns Flipper, or put fizz in the Binko soda can (would you have even known to get a Binko soda without a Cheat of some sort). So the real issue is not 2D versus 3D, but lengthy dialogues, obscure puzzles and time consuming searches versus action.
TLJ will probably not hold your friends interest and, as others have already posted, DF is quite playable without first playing TLJ.

Perhaps you should put your TLJ spoilers in spoiler tags just for those who haven't played the game who may read this thread.
You are right. I've been getting sloppy in spoiler forums. As to "clicking on everything", it is a habit a lot of us have. At least "pixel picking" was dead by then. I was sooo happy when gaming stopped that practice and opted for more substantial puzzles.

If it had been in the Chapters subforum, yeah. But in the TLJ saga subforum, I'll expect spoilers from both TLJ and Dreamfall:TLJ. I'd expect Chapters stuff to be put in spoiler tags here, rather than TLJ stuff. But yes, it's always better to be safe than sorry
I would not require anyone to label spoilers from TLJ and Dreamfall anywhere except the TLJ Saga no spoilers forum, they're both past the statue of limitations to me. Though, as Crowboy says, people can add them to be nice. And I think I've added a tag or two when someone has asked me.
April Ryan is my friend,
Every sorrow she can mend.
When I visit her dark realm,
Does it simply overwhelm.

It's the perfect game for atheists like me. you might think that's ironic, but I wrote that long ago in a blog post of mine too. The balance is the sort of "religion" that is just based upon experience of the world , not out of fear as a motivator to do good. It also makes you question the perception of magic, that it's a container word just like science. And if you look at our "real" history, there's stuff we would have found "magic" as well. But going into magic in a much more nuanced way could just lead you to discover alchemy, or cosmic interference, and the way people could perform those, which kinda turns out very scientificly explainable almost. especially when you're into book 3 you get that vibe that magic, science: it's all a matter of perspective and that you could be fearful, or curious and wonder to discover more of it.
This whole TLJ story is like the true meaning of what goethe means when he says, art and science is my religion, let other people have religion as well.. (or something like that)
