Games you never understood to play (the right way)

Yeah, as the thread title says.

As an example, i played Vamires Empire (http://hol.abime.net/1556)
always the wrong way. Mirrors? Light? Huh? I was just wandering around, avoiding enemies without any clue about playing it the proper way.

Another one is Balance of Power (http://hol.abime.net/18).
Cool, politics, cool economy. War! War! Decisions? Yes, Decisions!
Uh, wrong decision? Game over.

No that I remember. Some guy chases me, no buttons or controls do anything, he catches me, then kills me, then the game is over

I got bored after the nth time of trying.

No manual for my *cough* backup copy back in the day, but the game drew me in real fast. So glad I invested two hours in finding out how to play it

Captain Blood seriously i'm 13 playing this late into the nights landing on all these strange planets talking to aliens with this indecipherable hieroglyphic interface and they talk back in that.
So i just went around nuking planets. when i got sick of the pretty colours of "destroy planet activated" i just loaded the game to listen to J. Michel Jarre's title track.

armour-geddon loved the game the gfx mood theme everything. wtf do you do? i still dont know maybe i should give it another try.

i agree with mega lo mania i worked out populous and powermonger this game stumped me so i rage quit.

Liberation the sequel to Captive it completely lost me.

There's a rumour going round that some people actually know the purpose of "Weird Dreams"...

"Who Framed Roger Rabbit", "Dungeon's Lair" (etc.) : 15' loading, then 10" game...
