So, what have we learned?

We now know that if you weren’t playing games in 1993, you’ve been doing life all wrong. Either be born earlier, or sort your priorities. We’ve learned that adventure games aren’t the minor niche the games press has so often, so lazily painted them into. They form a core of some of the best games of all time. We’ve also learned that if you like Myst, you’re wrong.

Remember, your favourite adventure not getting mentioned isn’t a slight. This is the best 25 out of hundreds of the things. If you believe a game is egregiously missing, leaving a comment like, “Where’s Zork: Grand Inquisitor?” isn’t helpful to anyone. Writing a short piece on why Zork: Grand Inquisitor is a brilliant adventure game is helpful to everyone.
