Shamus Young, the guy behind The Escapist's 'Experienced Points' column has put together a nice little write up about adventure games that goes into detail about how the genre has had its ups and downs, attributing much of its current upswing to Telltale Games.
It's called 'The Rise, Fall, and Rise of Adventure Games. Check it out HERE. It's a great read, not only for fans of Telltale but for video game fans in general!
