I might buy "The Longest Journey", which looks like a pretty cool game. However, I have at one time seen it described as "a thrilling action-adventure" *jibbly jibbly*. And I really, really, truly believe in my heart of hearts, that life is too short for hybrids.
So fellow adventure gamers. For someone who enjoyed games such as Sam and Max, Gabriel Knight, Monkey Island and Syberia but didn't like Kings Quest VIII and that Indiana Jones game that looked excactly like a Lara Croft-game - would you recommend the game "The Longest Journey"?
In other words: is it an adventure game or an *shudder* action-adventure game?
