Remember the days when there was good games like: Grim Fandango, Broken Sword 1-2, Simon The Sorcerer 1-2, Loom, Monkey Island 1-3, Maniac Mansion, Day Of Tentacle and more. Too bad, kids can't experience good games like in the past. Now, we have games like Tomb Raider which sucks huge balls, and LucasArts have turned into crap.

As much as I LOVED Uncharted, it isn'tan adventure game. They simply don't make any more games like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Yeah we still have the action adventure games like Uncharted and Tomb Raider, but not the Broken Swords and Monkey Islands on consoles.

I used to play those with my wife and together we'd enjoy the puzzles and humourous dialogue and story.

Clever adventures like Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion just don't seem to be popular any more sadly. :-(

Gaming has been dumbing itself down to placate the masses for a while now it seems...
