You may be pleasantly surprised
The writers at Infocom, for the most part, were extremely adept at pulling you into the story, and most of these games have stood the test of time with grace. And with almost three dozen games, there are so many hours of potential gameplay here that even the most jaded puzzle solver won't find himself bored until at least the next millennium.
