Well it used to be a lot of real game/computer enthusiasts playing, now the industry is much more mainstream, so I'm unsure if much of that applies.

Adventure games where fun because they where a new kind of game rather then being great games themselves. They were great ways of telling interactive stories involving the player much like the early FF books by Steve Jackson & Ian Livingstone but thereís no game to master there as such. Though they did have the nice memory combat system, which was fun and unique to a computer game game.

Thereís also so much more competition now then there used to be. So many games coming out that require a lot of time to master/complete. There just isn't enough time in the world for all these games anymore. The industry is boring as hell atm as well - especially crpg'wise. That could be me getting bored of games though as I've really seen little thatís kept me interested for awhile now.
