I found The Dig to be a fun adventure game, resplendent of the era of adventure games. Man I miss those days. Anyway, this game was immersive, as so many others have said and exciting. Learning alien races and languages. I thought it was pretty cool. I got it for my roommate as a Christmas gift the year it was released, and then played it myself. The hours I spent playing were fun and enjoyable. I have always enjoyed LucasArts games. I wish they would do something besides the Star Wars stuff now. There was such a creative reign of talent there for a while.
