Joshi, your arguments for and against the adventures are so ridiculous, how should I counter them?

> there isn't any incentive for these people to actually do anything worthwhile
They deliver goods to strange planets in Futurama. How could that not be adventurous?

> there's no threat of important people dying
Ever played a LucasArts adventure?

> Sam n Max worked because, well, it's sam n max
Sure, great argument you got there.
Sam & Max is a comic with lots of dialogue. It's an animated series with lots of action. The protagonists don't die. Sam & Max aren't smart enough to do the stuff that people do in adventure games...

Dalty has a point. Batman has no super powers. He relies on gadgets (just like adventurers do on their inventory).

Yes, I've read Good Omens. Works as a book. Could NEVER work as a game. Where's the puzzle solving? Where's the interaction with objects? How could it be entertaining for people who've read the book?
