I've never been a *huge* fan of the genre, but once in a very great while I get the urge to play an adventure game. Not being that into them, I rarely know what to try, especially since for good or ill it'll be the last one I play for some time. So, I figured I'd run it by you duders and dudetters.
The last one I played, and I really enjoyed it, was Gemini Rue. I know that company has made others since, but none of them stand out the way that one did to me.
I want something modern. No pixel hunts or nonsense-logic item combining, ideally something fresh, though just a solid good idea or two might be enough. I was thinking about The Walking Dead, since I'm a fan of the show, but five games is more than I want to commit to. Color me undecided, so it's still on the table. What other options might there be?
I want your ideas. Enlighten me!
Oh, but no comedy. Nothing goofy or cartoony. I mean, it can have some humor if it serves the setting or story, like a good drama or what have you movie might, but no Sam and Max type stuff. Something "grown up" for lack of a better word. Something that makes you think, or feel.
Thanks in advance.
