Adventure Gamers started as a humble fan site in 1998 but grew into one of the premier online magazines of its kind and the largest English-language website devoted to the adventure genre. We specialize in covering computer and video games that focus on puzzle solving within a narrative framework, from the oldest text and graphic adventures (such as Zork, King’s Quest, and Monkey Island) up through today’s upcoming releases (such as Return to Monkey Island, The Excavation of Hob’s Barrow, The Expanse: A Telltale Series, and The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil In Me).
We offer in-depth reviews and coverage of the latest adventure games, as well as nostalgic retrospectives on the best games from different decades. If you're looking for a complete list of the best adventure games to play in 2023, we update our overview continiously.
