I shared a comment I made about p&c adventure games because I was curious to see if anybody here in Groupthink is a fan of the genre. If you are, what do you think of its tropes and limitations? If you would rather talk about that in Groupthink than Kotaku, here is a safe entry for you to do so :)
Also, GOG is having a 70% sale on p&c adventure games.
I immensely enjoyed the first three Broken Sword games, and the first two Simon The Sorcerer games.
(Avoid Broken Sword 4 and Simon The sorcerer 3D like the plague. They are not good games).
Also, I haven't played them yet because my backlog is huge, but I've heard extremely good things about the two Syberia games.
