(re: I have to say Sierra sucks now) A lot of people will disagree with that, but most of them will be action gamers.
Just because Sierra doesn’t make games you like anymore, doesn’t mean they suck. They have very successful action games, such as Half-Life, Alien vs. Predetor, and the awsome No one lives forever. The people who like that kind of games probably enjoy them just as much as you would a good adventure.
Bare in mind that a commercial company has but one and only goal – to make money. Sentiments don’t enter into it. Adventure games are not profitable nowdays, and that’s why the genre is dead.
