Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Tuesday 20 November 2012
Believe it or not (I have trouble believing it), the Adventure Game Scene of the Day is celebrating its 6-months anniversary today! (Which also means we’ve been suffering under the awful new forums for 6 months; and they’re still as awful as on the first day.)
So here’s some cake!
(Cue the comments about how Portal is not a real adventure… Which is actually an interesting question. The second one definitely is, but I’m not sure about the first one. If it weren’t for the last level, which (finally) introduced some exploration, I don’t think I’d count it as one.)
Recently finished: Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse (R) (4/5) | Detective Di (3.5/5) | Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations (R) (4.5/5) | Heaven’s Vault (3/5) | Ace Attorney: Justice For All (R) (3.5/5) | Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (R) (4.5/5) | Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space (R) (4.5/5) | The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker (abandoned) (2/5) | Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (3.5/5) | The Sexy Brutale (R) (4/5)
Insane how you’ve kept this going for six months more or less single-handedly - nice job, it’s one of the best things about the forum and I always check every thread :-)
Regarding Portal, it has a solid story and great puzzles, so even though it’s not adventure’ish in the traditional sense, I’d still count it as a puzzle/adventure hybrid.
Now playing: ——-
Recently finished: don’t remember
Up next: Eh…
Looking forward to: Ithaka of the Clouds; The Last Crown; all the kickstarter adventure games I supported
For me, Portal is as much an adventure game as Crysis is an RPG. It’s ridiculous. But it bears enough elements to make it one for many. That’s how I see it and it’s all fine.
Nice choice of picture to celebrate, though!
The cake is a lie!

Unfortunately that is so very much true
Everything you need to know about me has already been told.
Hey, I love the new forums! They look a hundred billion times better! Yes, BILLION! And with them came the AG Scene of the Day, which defines greatness.
The looks are better but the functionality isn’t all that great.
If Portal is an adventure game then so is The Incredible Toon Machine. Good game though. Both are. Congratulations.
Happy Celebrations! Good job Kuru, I really enjoy your “of the day” posts, and I love the enthusiasm you show
Duckman: Can you believe it? Five hundred bucks for a parking ticket?
Cornfed Pig: You parked in a handicapped zone.
Duckman: Who cares? Nobody parks there anyway, except for the people who are supposed to park there and, hell, I can outrun them anytime.
