I haven't played one of these since the days when you bought your games in a box from the local game store. I wasn't able to finish it because it had a scene where you needed to defuse a bomb before it blew you up, and the stress of that timed scene made me quit the game. I am the more contemplative sort of gamer who loves to solve puzzles and riddles, doesn't ever play arcade or combat games, and I get chest pain under stress, anyway.
Do all Nancy Drew games have action sequences? You can't play a Demo at BF to see what they are like, so I haven't even tried one. If you have played one (or a few), can you recommend one to someone who started with traditional Adventure games and still prefers them over Casuals?
