Broken Age is a Wonderful Game That is a Great Example of Everything Wrong With a Genre | FRONTBURNR

FRONTBURNR: Point-and-click adventures are some of the first games that introduced me to interactive storytelling. I remember spending many nights sitting in my basement, watching my mom play the King’s Quest series.

Kid games I played back in the early 90s. Freddi Fish was another one.

I remember playing some stupid game about oceans that was point and click

I don't get the title and score. Sounds like one of those IGN "Worst game ever! 9/10"

Try actually reading the review. It's pretty explanatory.
