John Walker, the author of the piece, knows his onions on adventure games. I can't remember whether he's been on here, but I remember his contribution to this epic thread on Adventure Gamers:
Sadly he wasn't the reviewer who gave Moment of Silence 14%, but the whole thing turned into an interesting debate on the state of adventure games and how the mainstream gaming press should treat them. I'm sure much of it is still relevant today. :~
