The new games are generally more fun, I think.
If you mean Hit the Road here, I strongly disagree. All the puzzles fell into one of the following two categories:
- Followed a kind of logic, even if rather convoluted sometimes (eg. when you had to create a corkscrew out of the icepick with the help of the tool-bending guy
- Happened via actions that no self-respecting adventure gamer would leave undone (eg. using the Wak-A-Rat - who would leave without winning that game?
