The 10 Most Influential Retro Games: Adventure - Game Revolution

"There aren't too many games that really tell you what you're in for from their title alone, at least not nowadays. Back in the early days of the Atari 2600, it was commonplace to have basically-named titles, like Video Olympics or Video Pinball. But the first time people fired it up, players figured out that it was very different from any other game they'd ever played." -Kevin Schaller (Dev, Industry, Retro)

Adventure's influence is pretty far and wide today. Hard to believe it started so small.

First game with an Easter Egg. There is a secret key you can pick up in one area and then bring to another to be able to pass through a secret wall. This room shows the names of the creators, something developers couldn't show back then. Pretty narly if you ask me.

Ooohhh, I thought it was going to be the most influential adventure *genre* games. To be talking about the actual GAME called Adventure shows this is actually some serious retro we're talking about. :o

If CoD wasn't their main focus they could remake the game for current gen and bundle the original version.

Reminded me of a beta Legend of Zelda.

I played this game on one of those Atari TV games when I was a kid. It was so freaking hard. I always thought the dragons were giant ducks.
