Games where you can't screw up - an IFDB Poll

by Pinstripe

Sometimes, when I'm playing a game, I spend more time juggling my save files than I do reading the text. I don't want to have to restart because I picked up the green rod instead of the clay jug (with apologies to Zarf). So I'm looking for games where any death can be avoided with a simple undo, and I can never find myself in an unwinnable state. More traditional games, not conversation games or one-move games, would be preferred.
