From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A personification of adventure as represented by a statue in The American Adventure in the World Showcase pavilion of Walt Disney World's Epcot.

The adventure genre, in the context of a narrative, is typically applied to works in which the protagonist or other major characters are consistently placed in dangerous situations, and a fictional character who lives by their wits and their skills is often called an adventurer. Adventure novels and adventure films are both prominent genres in their respective media, although the latter has fallen out of the spotlight with the rise of the modern-style action film. In games, the term is less consistently applied: the term "adventure game" is used in reference to video game that make use of exploration, while role-playing games use the term "adventure" in reference to specific pre-planned segments of gameplay.
