Frustration thy name is Zork
Alright i play a lot of video games, a lot, like wayyy more then i should, and i think thats why I'm so frustrated playing Zork. In my world games should be intuitive, polished and shiny works of art. Zork is none of those things...how many times do i have to "stab troll with sword" till it understands to use the sword every time...also the option to "kill self with axe" should definitely come with an are you sure option... Like ive said games have become kind of an art form to me, and while ill give Zork the respect it deserves for being one of the first, the newer games have left me spoiled, i guess i just cant appreciate a text based game anymore.
