Evan, there is nothing in my post to warrant the animosity in your reply. We’re just having a friendly conversation here!
And no way in hell am I ignorant with regard to adventure games.
Please realise that your opinion is in no way “better” than mine. Regardless of whether you run your own adventure game website. Certainly, that doesn’t make your opinion more “qualified” than mine, or bestow you with some kind of almighty authority, right?
And I don’t mind if you rate Open Season. That’s fine with me. I just don’t agree with you. I suggest you go and read over some of the hotly debated threads on this site. We’re all (or most of us, at least) big fans of classic Sierra. And we’re all just giving our opinions on various matters pertaining (chiefly) to the games of that era. In that way, each of us is doing his or her little bit to keep the history, the emotions, the dream alive.
