Hello Fellow Boomers,
Am I the only one who is noticing a LACK of Adventure games being released, lately? There's plenty of Casual games and Hidden Object games around. My only hope that there will be some "real" Adventure games released sometime this year. I'm yearning for some more games in the venue of Syberia, Tex Murphy, and the like. Also some MYST-like games, as well.

There are some adventure games that are forthcoming. It seems that they do get released in bunches though in between times or "rest". lol

I must be one of the slowest players ever - as I never seem to make even the smallest dent on my "not yet played" stack and so still have lots of unplayed Adventures !! whistle

I still have lots of unplayed older ones on the shelf.
But the newer ones are all insubstantial "bits-in-the-air" and have no physical presence.
I don't even burn the installation files to DVD any more because they always seem to get updated versions. I hardly ever see patches anymore -- just a whole new humongous download.

Yes, and therefore I really appreciate the fact that the Nancy Drew games (Her Interactive) and the Carol Reed Mysteries (Mikael) still offer disk versions. wave

True, but one could make the argument that disks are fragile and games "in the air" are always there for download and undamaged.
If you suspect they will disappear for some reason, you still have the option to download them and burn them to disk.
DRM-free, anyway.

I prefer disc versions, although I have some downloads, I don't always like the experience of downloading and there's no box to enjoy. I love Carol Reed and there's one due in March. Tex Murphy is my all time favorite and has 'Tesla Effect' due out about March, also. 'Prominence' is HOPEFULLY going to be released soon, March as well, if we're really very good.

The PC has a few "real" adventures coming out for 2014, including:

Broken Sword 5, Part 2

Broken Age

Gods will be watching

Harvest

Testla Effect

Moebius

Murdered: Soul Suspect

Shadowgate

Gabriel Knight 1 20th aniversary edition

Dreamfall Chapters


And that is only some of them. The PS Vita has Danganronda coming out next week and we always can count on 2 Nancy Drew games.

Looks to me that 2014 will be a busy one for all!

I also prefer disk versions of games because they sit on my shelf where I can browse thru them and pick what I want to play. If the games are in the "clouds" I don't get to see the boxes and compare them side by side. It's a changing world but I sure prefer a "book in hand" to a "book on Kindle"! That will never change for me!

I found Serena on another major site's list of upcoming games - I've removed it from mine.

Download games have their advantages - no waiting for the game to be released to your local store, don't have to prebuy the game to make sure you get a copy.

But - I own some beautiful games physical copies and still love the collector's editions when I can find them.
