Hi fellow Boomers,
I just finished playing (for the umpteenth time), "Under A Killing Moon". A great plot, and a wonderful ending.Of course, I had the help of a GB walkthrough, so it went very smoothly.
This game is a prime example of what an adventure game SHOULD be, but aside from Syberia 3, which I have not yet purchased, they are not the same as they used to be (in my not so humble opinion). I'd love to hear some input on this very topic from my GB friends, which should be interesting to all of us. BTW, I have the original boxed version of UAKW, but I now have the GOG version, which ran flawlessly. Next GOG purchase: "The Pandora Directive", another of my many original boxed games.

While I do think that some good adventure games are still being made, I agree with you that a lot of them aren't what they used to be. Coincidentally, I am replaying Under a Killing Moon right now and it's just so darn good: plot, puzzles, humor, great entertainment.

I've been a gamer for a very long time (since 1982) and I do think that the 1990s saw the pinnacle of great adventure gaming; there were so many amazing adventure games released during that decade. wave

Although I've not been playing Adventure games quite as long as you, Marian, [ evil ] I definitely agree that the cream of the graphical crop were the releases of the 1990s yes

Plus I feel the type of game now being classed as "Adventure" is somewhat different ....

Hi Mad,
I guess that's the point I was trying to make. I thank you for clarifying that. I guess that's why I choose, these days, to replay my old favorites instead of all this new "stuff" that's being released as "adventure" games, no offense to the developers, of course. "I'm just an old fashioned type of guy". LOL
