There are adventure games, and there are choose-you-own-adventure games. You might think that the latter is a split-off from the former, but really the sub-genre emerged from physical choose-your-own-adventure books more than any kind of video game. As such, these games are primarily concerned with narrative and the player’s ability to direct it through their own choices.
