Bring back the parser?

The "Ultima fans!" thread has me reminiscing about the old parser-driven games, & how their passing into obscurity for the most part killed off the idea of a games with relaxed scripting.

I totally understand that the mouse & solid GUIs brought in a new market that made gaming into something better in other ways, but still different; I just miss it.

I think that voice recognition software is good enough to bring back the parser & still appeal to the common gamer. Anyone else anxious to see this?


Zork understood me better than some of the women I've dated.

Hmmm. Not a popular idea, or is it just that "parser" is too big a
word for the OG?


most of them probly dont know what you mean when you say parser

The latter, then. Fair enough. New thread on its way....
