(re: I have to say Sierra sucks now)
The adventure game genre isn’t the only one to have that problem. My other favorite genre also has died over the years. That of puzzle games. Now I’m not talking tetris or puyopop, I mean things like the Adventures of Lolo where you have to actually solve boards so as to move on with the game. The only recent game to strattle the border of a true puzzler was the new Legend of Zelda game, and even then it wasn’t a very hard puzzler.
