Nice interview and analysis.
I played some more adventures in my C64 and Amiga days (1982-92).
After discovering my love for CRPGs my relationship with the adventure genre cooled down. I don't blame the quality of the current adventures so much for this.
It is more the fact that good CRPGs are some kind of superset of adventures.
Good CRPGs include puzzles and riddles, narrative elements and exploration.
As an extra I get character develoment and combat.
So in my case the CRPGs killed my adventure gaming.
I sometimes return to adventures if I hear good things about them:
LA Noir, Dreamfall, Runaway, Grim Fandango…
For every complex problem, there is a solution that is simple, neat, and wrong. -
