Zork is however starting to show its age a bit. it has a smaller vocabulary than some of the more recent cassette based games - Lord of the Rings and Worm of Paradise for example. There is also very little character interaction worth talking about. However, as with all Infocom games, the quality of design and the vividness of the location descriptions makes this a true adventure classic.
