I'm young enough to have quite missed the heyday of the commercial text adventure, but I've been a fan of the medium ever since I discovered the infamous Hitchhiker's Guide game in middle school. I play a lot of IF, do reviews sometimes, and have written one extremely short and terribly beginnerish piece (hopefully I will continue to hone my skills and create other, less terrible pieces in the future).
I don't tend to review unless I feel I have something to say that's significantly different from what's been said already, which is why I don't review terribly much. There are plenty of articulate people around stating opinions similar to mine, after all.
