Serious question: Would you play a text adventure on your console?

GamesRadar writes:

It's easy to dismiss text adventures as a relic of gaming's past. Something that people played way before graphics and boob physics had been invented. But having indulged one recently I honestly believe that they could - as a genre - find a place amongst today's technically bewildering, big-budget blockbuster releases. No. I have not gone mental.

I could do it on my phone though...

JsonHenry2807d ago

I wouldn't. If I am going to go this route I might as well join a table-top roleplaying group of people.

It would have to a pretty friggin good text adventure, like the GOW3 of text adventures. LOL

I wonder if this question is inspired from the latest Zero Punctuation Neir Review, since apparently there is a text segment in the game.

I think it's worth a try, and it would cost next to nothing...

Although I'd lul pretty hard if "X Company looses $90 million due to failed Text adventure"

But as mentioned...on a Cell phone, this might just be brilliant.

Yes but only for a short while, for old times sakes. I remember playing them at work, as there was nothing else to do and it infuriated my boss something chronic. Ahhhhhhhhhhh good times :-)

Imagine the size of a text adventure you could fit onto a Bluray though

I think i still might hav 1 or 2 of those old-skool aventure books

"You approach the man who's standing by the burnt tree"

*turn to page 157 to ask him for directions*
*turn to age 42 to walk past ignoring him*
*turn to page 11 to kill the man and steal his loot*

Those books where awesome back when i was 11-14 years old, i doubt its summin id enjoy now asmuch as i did when i was young
