    Damn, I didn't even know there WERE any point and click adventure games for PS1. I hope this thread receives some input!

    Of the top of my head, Broken Sword 1 & 2 are very good games with likable characters (at least for me).

    Dracula The Last Sanctuary is another tile, as well as the other one in it's family (don't remember the name, or if it was a sequel or prequel).

    Blazing Dragons, Myst, and Riven sequel to Myst come to mind right away. I'm sure there are a few more

    Beavis and Butthead Virtual Stupidity. It was released for PC then later on ported to the PSX. PSX version is a Japan import only.

    The Clock Tower games are point and click, although Clock Tower 2 is pretty much garbage.

    I think Echo Night is point and click. It seemed cool.

    I hear the Discworld games for PlayStation are pretty good, funny, et cetera, but they have longish long times and I hear the puzzles can be a bit unobvious and involve pixel-hunting at times. However they do have PlayStation mouse support so that's always a plus particularly if you don't want to use the d-pad.

    Blazing Dragons is AMAZING, but it's a little short. I played it on the Saturn, but there's a PS1 version available.

    The Neverhood was also released on the PS1, but only in Japan.

    Dracula: The Resurrection

    Gold and Glory: The Road to El Dorado is one but it got a lot of negative reviews.

    Psychic Detective takes the point-and-click genre in a really interest direction, but that also means it's not a traditional p&c. I liked it tho.

    Silverload is a decent horror-western p&c, but there are some cheap deaths to be had, so save often.

    D is the horror p&c everyone thinks of, but I hated it. I won't get into all of the why, but it's short, full of easy puzzles as well as a couple that are just time wasters, and the voice acting and story are atrocious and stupid. Worst of all the game doesn't let you save b/c it has a time limit, and two of the "puzzles" are only there to waste your time. I've never died due to the time limit running out, but I think that's just cheap.

    There are a few licensed games, and they're a mixed bag, mostly sucking. X-Files was ok, but short and weird. City of Lost Children, tho, is to be avoided. I think there are a few others, but I can't think of them off the top of my head.

    I have played clock tower 3 , but can't seem to get the other two, sometimes they turn on ebay, but so expensive. Is the 1st one good?

    I am considering buying Psychic Detective it does look good, i am wondering if its like night trap.

    D i have played, yep i hated it too, "laura" "laura" such terrible voice acting,i think you had 4 hours to complete, i completed it but sold it straight away on ebay.

    Fave game ever, never known a game to have such great humour, it made me laugh from start to finish, excellent game, this is what got me in to point n click games on the ps1. Hotel dusk for the nintendo ds is a wonderful game, nearly as good as this.

    There was talk of a broken sword film, but that was years ago so i don't think its happening now ( such a shame).

    Psychic Detective isn't really like Night Trap except conceptually. You basically look through other people's eyes to find different parts of the story, but it also means to miss certain things (it unfolds in real time, basically, and you can only watch one thing at a time). There are also changes depending on the way you say things. I dunno it's hard to explain, it's really like no other game I've ever played.

    As for D, don't you mean "Low-rah! Low-rah!" And why does she always look around for like half a minute while he shouts at her.

    Clock Tower isn't really a game I'd recommend either. I've heard good things about the first game (on the Super Famicom) but the PS1 game is just... ugh. It's very cheesy and doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I also don't really think the gameplay works too well. Being a p&c title, you naturally want to explore everywhere, click on everything, etc etc. The game punishes you for doing this by sending "Scissorman" after you. I never found him to be scary so much as annoying. But I'm not a big fan of running away in horror games. I like to be able to fight. (Granted you CAN fight him in certain circumstances but the game is not very intuitive as far as what you can and can't do... at all times. Interactivity is very limited to start with, and when you're being chased, it goes way down. If you like having many ways of solving a puzzle you'll hate Clock Tower.) I guess it's good for a laugh if you're into cheesy Japanese horror. It always seemed like more of a party game than a good horror or p&c title.
