TOP TEN DYING GAME GENRES

If you’re a long-time gamer, you might get a nostalgic kick out of an article over at Gamespy listing ten types of PC and video games that are dead or dying. Number one, of course, is the late, lamented graphical adventure game – all those hours spent with King’s Quest, Space Quest, Zork, Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, and the rest.

The genre is not completely dead, though. LucasArts is working on sequels to Full Throttle and Sam & Max. Elderly gamers, plan your social life accordingly.
