Why would anyone play a text adventure? For the same reason that a person reads a mystery rather than watches it on television. The images in the human mind will always exceed what can be represented on the screen. The entire Infocom series of games are superb, and in their day were hotter than Dungeons and Dragons.

Swabbing the decks of the S.P.S. Feinstein is routine work. (When you joined the Stellar Patrol, you knew you'd have to clean up your act!) The bane of your existence, Ensign Blather, is breathing down your neck as usual... but the next thing you know, you're the sole survivor of a shipwreck in space, hurtling toward an unknown planet in a tiny escape pod.
