since that is a very genral question without any specific concerns,  then I can just say; common sense!  and most of all the classic basic element we raised up witnessing

jhoedi, there are so many good games made but not all ‘styles’ appeal to everyone - so to recommend what makes a good game & want you to play it is difficult unless you post more info about what you’ve played so far & what you thought? & as for what is missing I get the feeling that you have an idea on that already? .....

Depends on the genre, there’s many different styles. One of my favorites is exploring large 3D worlds, and I definitely miss the N64-era 3D platformers like Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie (luckily there are a couple of new games in development that are going after that style). I tend to like open-world games, but GTA5 was awful and I’m not optimistic about the future of that series.

I wish adventure games would do the same type of thing; it’s possible the new King’s Quest will.

My opinion, but I feel due to the attitude of most of the big publishers, I’ve become very jaded of their output. When they announce something I’m always waiting for the key words like DLC, pre order exclusives etc. It’s not all of them, but well, I’m sure you know what I mean.

On the bright side though, the independent studios are doing amazing work and is allowing some of the once thought dead genre’s to live again. Not only are they allowing them to live, they’re also pushing creativity and bringing new ideas to the forefront.

     

Recently completed: Game of Thrones (decent), Tales from the borderlands (great!), Life is Strange (great!), Stasis (good), Annas Quest (great!); Broken Age (poor)

I’m disappointed that there are so few new 1st person puzzle/adventure games, and that most of the upcoming puzzle/adventure games (like Obduction and Xing) are using the FPS-style 3D movement that gives me motion sickness.

I don’t really believe there are “things” that make me want to play a game. A good premise or good history of games from the company gets me interested. “Things” can keep me interested or turn me off, but ultimately it’s all about the game as a package - if it works and it’s enjoyable then I’m in! Trouble is it is subjective and what works brilliantly in one game might not in another. There is no one formula for making games good. [/personal opinion]

My opinion? I totally dislike AAA games, which are very bland and 100% action/violence oriented. I still play them from time to time because people keep saying they’re great, but I just don’t get it.

(I’m playing a little of Uncharted 2 currently, and it’s…meh. A “hero” killing dozens and dozens of people? Near-automatic platforming? Puzzles only relying on action or for 3-years old? Seriously? Where’s the adventure into that?!)

But I love the indie games and AA games! If it weren’t for them, I’d probably have stopped playing.

Of course, I’ve become a game dev too, so my opinion is a little biased :p

Crabapple, you might be interested in my game “Demetrios - The BIG cynical adventure”! It’s first person view, but all 2D and no quick movement at all. (though quite different from the Myst style of game, I don’t know if that’s what you mean)

If you’re interested, check out that topic : http://www.adventuregamers.com/forums/viewthread/5556/

 

     

Single developer of Demetrios - The BIG Cynical Adventure. Available on PC, iOS, Android, PS4, Xbox One, PS Vita and Nintendo Switch !

Currently working on a new classic adventure mixing genres in “never been seen ways” - Project Brok. Watch me developing it on Twitch! https://www.twitch.tv/cowcatgames

Since the question isn’t specific to adventure games, I’m going to move this thread over to General.

There is nothing missing from modern games, today we have it all from text adventures to big budget games and everything in between.

I’ve even bought a few FMV games lately, haven’t seen those for a while.

     

I enjoy playing adventure games on handheld systems- PS VITA, Nintendo DS and ipad mini.

I play mobile games a lot and have found them to be as entertaining as the sort of games I’ve played on my Family Computer decades and decades ago. I think if you don’t grow with the times and realize that kids’ taste change over the years too, you might find modern games less creative than the ones I/we grew up. Just a thought.

Hmm i’ve been a little burnt out on AAAs like COWCAT. I think it’s just getting older and having played one too many, they all start to feel formulaic after a while. I try to look for games that do things differently.

That’s why Indies have been a boon and a curse somewhat. It’s great to see such big influx of creativity, but on the other hand it makes it harder as a dev myself to get recongized and break through the noise! So it goes.
