West on the Sinclair QL (a pure text adventure) handled swearing superbly. On the first offence, it would just tell you off. The second time, it would warn you that continuing to swear was not a good idea. The third time, a bunch of Indians, "angered by your foul language", would sweep down the street and kill you. Fun!

Incidentally, this was probably my first adventure game, or its sister game, Zkul, for the same platform. My first graphical adventure was MI1 on the Amiga.
