This isn't idiomatic, is it? Despite the definition which seems dubious (POV?) I think it is just a game involving adventure. We don't have action game or fighting game. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:09, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

If "adventure game" refers to computer games exemplified by The Secret of Monkey Island, then I don't see how I can possibly derive the meaning from "adventure" and "game". Per WP, the term originates from the 1970s computer game "Adventure". --Dan Polansky 19:52, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
Yes. Keep. Games like Quake and Tomb Raider involve adventure, as you make your way through an action-packed 3D world, but they are not "adventure games": it is a genre of puzzle-solving that would include series like LucasArts' SCUMM games, Codemasters' old Dizzy series, and the text adventure. Perhaps RFV if you don't want to take my word. Equinox 18:12, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
In fairness, I wasn't 100% sure. Mglovesfun (talk) 20:02, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
