Default What's the "D Word"?

I've been reading Steve Ince's collumn but when I reach a term I'm not familier with I have to stop and look it up.

I'm going to assume that the 'D' word (as he puts it) is 'Dated', which is more or less what I've noticed in many adventure game reviews over the last few years.

I'm not sure though. For all I know it's an inside term well known to members of the adventure game community, to which I still feel new.

"Dead" as in the old chestnut that reporters always say when reviewing adventure games.

I'd have gone with something more ammusing. Like 'Dildo'. Smutty, but I'm childish.
