    Sign me up. For those who played Trail Of The Twister, didn't it bug you that Nancy was afraid of the mice that were at the farmhouse?

    I agree! I just found out that in the late 50s, the position of the person in charge of all books Nancy Drew was handed over to Edward Stratemeier's daughters (the original creator of Nancy Drew in 1930). As these women were "ladies", they decided to soften Nancy's character and speech, and make her more of a "girl" (example: make Nancy more of the victim in a given circumstance and leave it to someone like Ned to save her). So in 1959, they revised the first Nancy Drew book and printed it in place of the original title. Over the next decade or so, they not only revised all of the games prior to 1959, but gave Nancy the same makeover in all of the books to be made after 1959.

    This then created a version of Nancy which, all though still daring and adventurous, was not the original Nancy. I've only read one book that was made before 1959, and Nancy was much more spunky, daring, and left her fate in her own hands, as opposed to all of the later books I've read.

    So I guess that something like this is going on here. Not this extreme of course, but still. Maybe they're trying to make Nancy more relatable, but I still think Nancy was more like herself not only in the previous games, but in the previous books. Anyways, in conclusion, I agree! Nancy is way more... I don't know... not herself...

    In Danger by Design, she was afraid of a rat too in the catacombs after she was finished swimming.

    DISCLAIMER:
    All of the below rantings are my own, and I mean in no way to offend anyone.

    Ohmygosh. I'm so glad to see this petition because I was about to start one myself.
    I've noticed how Nancy has become rude toward people in the games and it's been irritating as all get out to play. Don't get me wrong, I love HER for continuously putting out games with our beloved heroine, but the way she spoke to Miwako was not cool. In ASH she was rude at times, but considering the context it made it more understandable.
    The true Nancy Drew is tactile, confident, diplomatic, but sweet and kind-hearted.

    Millie, Millie, Millie... It's like you read my mind! Seriously, I completely agree. In SAW Nancy was just rude, then when Nancy's screaming because of a little mouse. A MOUSE. (ny) It's like c'mon girl ... Not only do I think of Nancy as a nearly fearless character, but a caring one with sympathy for others. That's what she was like in the books at least.

    Sign me up! In the books Nancy was nice and carring, same as in the earlier games. What happened to Nancy who lost her mom and liked to show some consideration towards others in similar circumstances?!
    And I totally agree with the Monk comment.
