Old school modules weren't linear railroads where players needed to follow breadcrumbs to find "the story". They were more often sandboxes where players have agency and are assumed to be self-motivated and clever enough to come up with their own goals and solutions.

Also note the XP rules for early editions: killing monsters yields little XP. Getting treasure yields lots. Ergo, hack and slash is a way to drain YOUR resources for relatively little gain, while negotiation, stealth, ambushes, and other stratagems can acquire treasure (and thus XP) without the dangerous grind.

Whether OD&D, BECMI, AD&D 1e, or 2e, which published adventure module wins out as The Best? We're talking the folded, stapled beauties with the cardstock cover, so no 3-5e WotC/Paizo stuff (even if they're great, they're not classic). Yes, third party stuff (like Judges Guild) counts. The standard should lean more towards the way it plays over production values.
