Oh sorry I guess they’re called Interactive Fiction now, whatever.
I think I was playing Jack The Ripper back in the day and one time my character was in his room trying to find a way out without getting killed by an angry mob outside and the only object in the room was an ocarina. Now being twelve I had no God damn idea what an ocarina was and the stupid game never told me and I spent so many turns trying to eat it (I guess I thought it was like an orange?) that the mob barged in and killed me.
Stupid text adventures.
