Double Fine creative director Tim Schafer recently sat down with Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert to debate the adventure games in the modern age.

Gilbert discusses what makes a strong adventure title, what elements still exist in modern games today, and why the genre has faded in a growing crowd of competing games and genres.

Both also discuss games design – even debating whether script writers should be fluent in coding.
