"People have always looked to escape into fantastic worlds and stories. This facet of the human condition has produced story-driven entertainment in the form of books, films and story-centered video games. But before the World of Warcraft, there were the countless worlds of Final Fantasy, and even before that there was the kingdom of King's Quest. Despite the long history and pedigree of quality games, it seems that the adventure genre has run out of steam."
