  1. The best in my opinion is The Walking Death series by Telltale

  2. Have a major glitch playing PUBG mobile on Honor 10, huawe nova 3i and mate 10 PRO. Please cover this issue! Please.

  3. I love old style adventure games and as i am getting a Switch next week this list was very helpful. Thanks! I have already played Syberia though but i would gladly but it again for the Switch as i haven’t played the second entry. It’s a bummer though according to most reviews the 3rd is a bit rubbish 😢

  4. A wonderful list. Thanks for the advice.

  5. For me point and click is all about the clicking. Can you use the touch on the screen to click around for all the games?

  6. Thimbleweed Park is overrated. Nothing compared to Monkey Island 3.

  7. So surprised / disappointed the switch didn't come with a stylus. I was lookin forward to some HD hidden object games

  8. Thanks so much, I never knew this!
