After LucasArts closing, what does the future of adventure games look like?

Legendary game designer Ron Gilbert (The Secret of Monkey Island) on modern adventure gaming:

The focus is more on making the games themselves enjoyable. I think that is a place adventure games are going. The Walking Dead is a great example of really great games that have no puzzles. The puzzles that are there might as well not be. You just want to get on with the story. I think we should stop thinking about them as adventure games and start thinking about them as just games, or ways of telling stories.
