Like King's Quest? That would be in the "Adventure" genre. Fallout is a great game, but it's more like an RPG. Take a look at http://www.justadventure.com for some good reviews of games of the adventure variety. Hmm...Broken Sword 3 is the best game this year in that category. Syberia is getting old, so you can get it very cheap. There are quite a few others that are a lot of fun, too. I just started The Longest Journey and it's looking pretty good so far.
