Adventure games are broken.
You might say that the genre is still going strong with the success of games like Terraria, Minecraft or Telltale’s The Walking Dead. But when there’s a wiki site for every game with all its secrets just a few keystrokes away, mystery and discovery fall victim to efficiency and power gaming.
A video game used to force you to use your brain; now, you can just use Google. It feels like cheating.
