So, i was thinking, now that there's a specific forum for the international audience, why not place some interesting international questions, RE: Adventures? What i always found interesting is why this specific genre has flourished in Germany. My guess, it has to do with the PC/console market. For instance, I think (i could be wrong) that the PC Master Race is strong with our germanic friends. I seem to recall that the genre of old-school RPGs is similarly strong in Germany, as opposed to eastern, console-based RPGs. Any comments?

Or am i completely off and it's only me?
What now?

It's a mystery to me...

Maybe Germans simply like adventure games and old school RPGs?

By the way I wish a very happy inauguration to our newly-born English corner!!! :lol:

Yes. But why?
Not really helpful there :P :P :P

I did some digging around, aside from the aforementioned assumption (that germany is mostly PC, ergo, the adventure genre did not fall that much behind), i found out a particular piece of information: some of the most prestigious magazines (print magazines, yes, i know, it seems that the germans are pretty old school after all, that's awesome), like Power Play & ASM have journalists that have been favouring the adventure genre. Can that seep through and help shape the general disposition of the market? Furthermore, does that sound familiar? :dry: :huh: :ohmy:

If we have some german visitors, now is the time for you to step forward and help solve this conundrum :lol:
What now?
