In the end of the day, no genre or platform is dead until people give up on it.
Sure adventure games went underground because of the "ooh shiny" aspect of first person shooters like Doom, but its because of that downscaling and rethinking of the genre that has lead it to this point.
I mean Sony still sell PS2s! Sure us first world consumers have given up on it, and developers have given up on it, but its still has its success on the developing markets. (where it can be produced and sold cheaply)
I cetainly wouldn't think Telltale's success is a bad thing by any degree, and they are still a fairly young company, and mistakes are going to be made one way or another, (especially when one's success leads to a feverish pursuit of scale and diversity. Many companies in many industries do exactly this, and sometimes it sticks, and sometimes it fails miserably).
Telltale still have to find ground before they realise that they are walking on air.
Its especially encouraging to see old players come back via new medias. Truly the rise of the Digital empire has created a lot of opportunity for people to find their place.
New markets, new technology, new opportunities, new opponents. Exciting isn't it! ;D
With Great Power Comes Great Resposibility.
My Uncle Ben taught me that.
He also makes great rice!
