Default Are there any text adventure lovers left out there?

I don't want to waste my time if no one is interested but I have been thinking about replaying some of my text adventure collection and could review some if there is any interest.

Sure thing! I really enjoyed playing Enchanter (I think I even wrote a review for it, as well... and I'm about review it's sequels...) and A Mind Voyaging Forever along with Amnesia, but my Greatest Favourite Text Adventure of All Time is Eric The Unready.
I'm looking forward to those especially because MM hinted there might be some gangster-themed ones. Even though roughly anyone plays those and they haven't got their own genre anymore, there are still tons of text adventures out there. So Geezer, if you've got anything we haven't seen yet, please share it with us

Always been a big fan, thanks to Infocom. But I have to go with Tracker and say my favorites were the Gateway series by Legend.

I love text adventure games, including the Zork trilogy, Wishbringer, and Colossal Cave Adventure.
I've also played The Lurking Horror, Planetfall and Enchanter.

I love text adventures....have done since my early c64 days

I'm currently playing Knight Orc again - one of my favourite ones ever. Can anyone recommend some lesser known text adventure gems I should check out?

I am going to play (and review) Bureaucracy (Infocom).

The SOPHISTICATED term is Interactive Fiction. But yes I do play a few here and there, I like it but I'm no good at it.

There's actually a pretty large IF community out there; Not just the DOS classics. I've been making one myself, but the process is slow so it might not even come out anytime soon, if ever.

After doing some research, there have been about 49 IF's released this year alone.
