  • Adventure games killed themselves with illogical puzzles and pixel hunting.

    I played most of the Lucasarts classics and they were by far the best of their kind. But then, some people regarded them as too easy. So now you know why they're gone.

    I'm all up for reinventing them. Perhaps with AI and dynamic outcomes?

    Re-inventing, or improving retro adventures sounds attractive.

  • People complained that Farenheit was too linear, but then again that's the very definition of story driven.

    There were a few (2 or 3) adventure games that had AI that let NPCs go about their own business on their own time. They were impressive, but also very hard and slow to play, as you had to wait on NPCs because they were busy like getting groceries or whatever O_o
