QuoteFor example, in KQ's 1-4, the player is referred to as "you" by the narrator. Not Graham, Alex or Rosella. The narrator also often directs comments straight at you in the early games, besides giving the standard descriptions--for example, in KQ4, if you type in for Rosella to undress, the narrator tells you, "Not in front of the players." But in KQ5, it changes. The narrator becomes only a vehicle to describe the environment or an action; the narrator is no longer a "character" in some ways; also, the protagonist is no longer called "you", it's Graham. Subsequent games follow this--in KQ6, the narrator refers to the protagonist as "Alexander", etc.
QuoteI believe this played a part in the eventual dumbing down of adventure games.
