This is my generic signature that states some opinion or belief that greatly offends you.
Deal with it.

Congratulations! We'll send you the gift certificate with all the games from the catalogue.
I grew up in the 80s and 90s playing a lot of traditional adventure games. Even played most of the text adventure games. Most gamers today seem to unless they can shoot, blow up or kill, the game isn't fun. Action adventure games like Uncharted is really a shooting game with a story. Not a lot of free exploration except a few small scenes. By half way through Uncharted 2, I completely lost interesting because there are so much shooting as the solution to progress. When I played an "adventure" games, I prefer not having to kill everyone as the solution to progress.
One of the last well made classic adventure game was The Longest Journey/DreamFall. Love both of them. But developers just can't survive trying to make classic adventure games that don't need to shoot or kill everyone.
