Resurrection of Adventures

Loot Ninja writes:

"I love adventure games, almost as much as Scuba loves ZJ's, if it is possible to love something that much. The first time one of my friends came over to my house and had a copy of Maniac Mansion, my obsession began. LucasArts brought such classics as Indiana Jones & the Fate of Atlantis, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango, and Day of the Tentacle to my computer screen, while Sierra occupied days of my life with Kings Quest, Police Quest, and Rise of the Dragon. Many consider Myst as one of the last hoo-rah's of the Adventure gaming fad.

Well now it's back baby! With two of the best, The Secret of Monkey Island and Beneath a Steel Sky just to kick it off. Telltale kept the heart beating strong with Sam & Max and Strong Bad episodic adventures but the true resurrection has begun…. on the iPhone."

I love adventure games and so want to see more of these games. I really love the 2D ones the best though but there is a lot of good one out for both 2D and 3D. So with the return of Monkey Island may be the future will be bright if you are a fan of the adventure genre.

I miss the quality, story driven Adventure title. Full Throttle was the last quality adventure title I played.

Pretty much a forgotten genre, I'd love to see these types of games make a reemergence.

Ummmmm, what the hell are ZJ's? I guess I'll have to go to Loot Ninja to see? Great writeup.

Adventure games need to be brought back. While some of them could get a little frustrating (Kings Quest) others were tons of fun (Day of the Tentacle).

I totally agree. The Dig was one of my favorites, that game had some great art, and an impressive list of developers. Industrial Light and Magic, and Steven Spielberg, just to name a few.

Loot Ninja Rocks!
