This is kind of cliche question in an adventures forum, but I'd like to know what do you have to say about it.
Why do you play adventure games ?

Because they're my favourite type of games to play!

I like the stories, character development and puzzles which you don't find in most other games.

Poll-less thread is poll-less.

Anyway, I like to think. And I like the time and effort that goes into them. Soundtracks especially. If it's an entertaining and engaging story/concept it usually wins me over.

Yea, its almost a dead cert that if its an Adventure or RPG type game that a lot of work has gone into it compared say to a movie port and usually the music in Adventure/RPG games freaking rock!!

I like it for the story. And multiple story paths are also a plus, it gives more replay value. :D

The only people who can write adventure games are people who write well. That's why I like them. I like the in references and the other comedy as well as the actual "must think" gameplay. If I get stuck in an adventure game it's because I haven't thought it through or I missed a key element somewhere. If I get stuck in Halo it's because I can't find a door.
