Interesting Stuff About Adventure Games
For a​ greater part of​ the​ 1980's adventure games have been popular as​ compared to​ other types of​ games .​
An adventure game is​ a​ type of​ video game that involves puzzle-solving as​ well as​ exploration with and some of​ interaction with the​ game characters .​

Narration tends to​ be the​ focus and as​ a​ result most adventure games tend to​ be single-player as​ a​ multi-player mode will remove the​ story-based aspect of​ it .​
Most adventure games come in​ the​ form of​ computer games although it's possible to​ find console-based versions these days .​

So what makes an​ adventure game what it​ is? Well,​ one of​ the​ common features of​ adventure games is​ fetch-quests theme where in​ order to​ progress,​ the​ player has to​ help a​ character in​ order to​ gain an​ important item or​ information .​
For instance,​ in​ a​ typical scenario where a​ player needs healing,​ he may be required to​ obtain a​ plant or​ the​ ingredients needed to​ make the​ magic healing potion .​

In these cases,​ the​ player often has to​ perform acts of​ benevolence or​ selflessness - such as​ freeing prisoners,​ animals - in​ order to​ locate of​ gain the​ reward of​ these ingredients .​
There are times they have to​ distract some characters in​ order to​ steal their price.

Another feature is​ to​ trap players in​ a​ dead end or​ a​ seemingly impossible place to​ escape from forcing the​ player to​ employ drastic measures in​ order to​ get out of​ the​ trap or​ find a​ means (sometimes an​ artefact or​ a​ key) to​ free themselves .​
These unwinnable games where the​ player met a​ dead-end were usually left unfinished unless he was able to​ return to​ the​ original position .​
a​ well-known example of​ this is​ Return to​ Zork .​

Although,​ adventure games were very popular in​ the​ 1980's,​ this popularity quickly declined in​ the​ early 90's when the​ Action games became the​ rage .​
As a​ result it​ was not financially sound to​ create and market them when people had no interest .​
The advent of​ console game platforms and MMORPG has not helped either .​
Nevertheless popular adventure games like Syberia and Syberia II have been published both for the​ PC and Xbox .​

In addition,​ Nintendo DS released of​ Trace Memory and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney in​ 2005 and Hotel Dusk: Room 215 in​ 2006.
The latest development is​ that free online adventure games can now obtained on​ premium internet portals without the​ need for download or​ plug-in .​
Many game lovers are now turning their attention to​ the​ internet not just for playing games but for socializing as​ well .​
Perhaps this is​ the​ new way in​ which adventure games will be played.
