I agree to that in so far that I came into gaming fairly late (eraly 90s), and began RPG gaming with

- Lands Of Lore
- Blade Of Destiny
- Albion

And all of them do contain some sort of story.

Only a few years ago I played Eye Of The Beholder partially. Yes, there was almost no story at all.

Before them, however, I played Indiana Jones And The Fate Of Atlantis. It blew me away, so to say. To this day I'm measuring every game against it - and against Monkey Island, too.

My "home genre" are Adventure games - are and will always be.

I heard about it, but I currently prefer comic-like adventure games. Bought "Kaptain Brawe - A Brawe New World" several days ago.
