The Adventure Game ‘Renaissance’

Peter Morgan, modernfictum.com

As early as sever years ago, you would be fair to say that the adventure game genre was basically dead. The genre of gaming that dominated the PC market in the 80’s and 90’s saw its demise around the turn of the millennium as PC power increased. Whereas most gamers were busy “pointing and clicking” their way through mysterious worlds and solving challenging puzzles in the century before, the millennium saw the PC market being dominated by first-person shooters such as Call of Duty, Medal of Honor Allied Assault, Far Cry, and more. In fact, the PC market was so dominated by first-person shooters, strategy games, and more, that you would be hard pressed to find a game that didn’t match one of these genres during the early to mid-2000’s.
