Most Popular Nancy Drew Game Guides

I've written text walkthroughs for 21 of the 25 games in the Nancy Drew series.  The ones I've missed are Legend of the Crystal Skull, Secret of the Old Clock, Danger on Deception Island, and Phantom of Venice.

GameFAQs keeps track of how many views each guide gets.  Just for fun, I thought it'd be interesting to list out the most popular guides here.
  1. Curse of Blackmoor Manor (32,174 hits)
  2. Haunting of Castle Malloy (19,035 hits)
  3. The Haunted Carousel (16,368 hits)
  4. Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon (15,500 hits)
  5. Ransom of the Seven Ships (14,270 hits)
  6. Treausre in the Royal Tower (11,378 hits)
All the other guides have received less than ten thousand hits.  Warnings at Waverly Academy and The Final Scene are neck-and-neck at around 9,400, though.

The least popular guide is Alibi in Ashes, with only 658 hits.  Then again, I only finished that guide three weeks ago.  It hasn't had as much time as some of the other guides, which have been up for years now.

Hi Michael, I just wanted to say that I love reading your blog especially because of all the work you do on the Nancy Drew games. Keep up the good work :)

The game that you were at your highest and best performance was: 'Stay Tuned for Danger'.
Your steady stream of witty commen-tary all throughout it was entertaining and informative.
And the way you read out alll the clues in different voices and "interacted" with the characters was especially enjoyable!

Totally off topic, but I found that there's a Nancy Virsona you can chat with! Please? Pretty please?

Completely unrelated, but they now have putt putt Saves the Zoo for iPod/iPhone. Thought that it might be something you're interested in.

Are you planning on doing any other lets plays that aren't ND or PW? I know you like Zelda games so will you be doing the new one?

@Philip that's not nancy drew. It's just Drew.And she's rather strange,I chatted with her.

Philip said...

You're right, she is weird, but no more so than Abe. And I think it is Nancy, her profile picture is one from VEN. :D
