Author: Aaron A. Reed
Language: z-code
Genre: Slice of life
Score: 7

I can't emphasize this enough: I like to be given a goal. I believe that the days of fumbling around without a clue as to what you should do faded away with the Golden Age of text adventures. Gourmet, happily, gives me a goal. Even when I'm not sure *how* to achieve that objective, at least I have some direction. This game had some great moments that really made me chuckle, even though quite a few times I had to refer to the walkthrough to get me through some of the more obtuse puzzles (and though I probably never would have guessed the solutions, at least they follow a consistent sort of logic and made sense within that framework).
