Let me add one thing about the article. I think what he said is the reason why Adventure Games have gone to the wayside. My very first computer game was an Adventure game, Kings Quest 2. I have played Kings Quest 1-7, Kings Quest 8 was crap and I only played the demo, I played Police Quest 1-5, Space Quest 1-6 Gabiriel Knight 1-3 and all the Monkey Isalnd Games. Those were all Adventure games and the most fun I've ever had gaming. I've played those game multiple times and still play Gabriel Knight from time to time.
Those games weren't about action, they were about explorating and story and using your mind to solve puzzles. Thoes games couldn't be made today because the PR Departments wouldn't even being to know how to promote them. That's a **** shame because I would buy Gabriel Knight 4 on the spot if it were made and if Jane Jensen were to write the story, a GREAT story teller and the reason why Gabriel Knight series are so much fun to play.
