Maybe, but from a practical point of view I must say that I, for one, would find it difficult to engross myself in a deep, meaningful adventure game on a handheld device, such as a pocket PC. These are much more suited for a quick, funny game to kill the time.

Back on topic, I think the genre certainly has the potential to explore deeper issues, like Trep is describing, and I would welcome it. I find it amazing what a movie can do with me, and I'm curious if a game could unleash something in me as well.
