I would have to say Monkey Island 1 as it was the first adventure game I remember playing as a kid on the Amiga and I still have fond memories of it closely followed by Monkey Island 2 and Day of the Tenticle.

IMO I jut don't think point and click are really suited to 3D graphics. I enjoyed Grim Fandango but it wasn't anywhere as good as some of the older point and click games like MI. It is a shame that there isn't a big market for Point and click so I doubt we will ever see another Monkey Island. Just l...

Monkey Island is without a doubt the best point and click game period. I would love to see a MI5 as long as it went back to 2D and not the shambles that MI4 was.

did Monkey Island 1&2 have a talkie version. I might be miss-reading your post AmishSamurai with the text based HUD bit but I didn't think there was one.

Point taken... :) Anyway keep up the good work guys it's great to see games like Monkey Island and Sam and Max playable again. I owned nearly all of lucasarts point and click games and think that people coming into gaming now are really missing out of a generation of games.

You cannot compare scummvm with mame. While scummvm is a collection of script interpreters, mame emulates CPUs. A better comparison to mame (though not quite either) would be dosbox, which supports way more games than scummvm does. I didn't mean that in a bad way. I think ScummVM is an excellent pr...

I know that, I don't come from a coders background so I don't know whats involved in porting things over. I'm just a fan who misses these types of games and was just wondering if games like beavis and butthead were a possibility.
Maybe ScummVM will become the Mame of point and click games.

Beavis and Butthead in Virtual Stupidity

Has anyone thought of supporting Beavis and Butthead in Virtual Stupidity in ScummVM? Would it be possible or is it a no no? As far as I know Viacom who published the game don't have any involvement in the industry anymore so the source code might possibly be available.
