All the inane chatter goes in here. If you're curious about whether we will support a game, post HERE not in General Discussion :)

No doubt about it, they're all pretty darn good. But are there any you can't stand to play?

Personally, I can't see myself sitting through The Dig again any time soon.

No. I love them all. But the Dig was the least loved. My problem is I don't know which I love the most:S&M, DOTT or FT...I'm just getting into IJ&FOA after not having played it in years and I forgot how good it was too. I've never played Monkey Island 1-3 though.

I loved The Dig, the soundtrack, the alien atmosphere. Grim Fandango never really grew on me and I couldn't get myself to play Monkey4 for more than 30 minutes.

Monkey4 (EMI), definitely not LucasArts finest. :(

I can honestly say that there isnt a single Lucasarts adventure title that i don't love. I'd have to say Maniac Mansion is the one i play least often though.

I personally really enjoyed EFMI although i have my gripes about it as well (not point and click when it feels like it should be, monkey kombat ver.1, and the REAL secret of monkey island *ouch*)

Playing the game again on PS2 addressed many of those issues for me though, the control seems more natural and monkey kombat makes more sense and has an auto pop-up combination list when you hold l2 (i think)

Actually LucasArts have not made a bad adventure game in my opinion. The best game is Fate of Atlantis but every one else is good or very good too.

I confess I am a fan of both Indy Desktop Adventures and Yoda Stories... There are worse ways to waste fifteen minutes, especially if you're sick of Minesweeper!

I think I dislike Escape From Monkey Island enough to call it bad. The first time I played it I thought it was OK, if disappointing, but a few months ago I went to play it again and barely made it off Lucre Island before I'd had enough.

Grim Fandango.

I just never got into it.

I can never get into that 'up is forward and you turn with left and right' type gameplay. Except Resident Evil, I guess. But that's one of the defining things about it.

Loved the style.

Escape from Monkey Island was the first game in the MI series that I played, I loved it, and it got me into the original MI games, which I loved even more (CoMI is in the mail, I have yet to play it). The problem with the newer 3D games such as EMI is that we all know and love the point and click format. My favorite games when they came out were Sam n Max and Full Throttle. I couldn't really get into the Dig, and I really liked Day of the Tentacle and the Fate of Atlantis. Though I never finished TFoA, I was a wee boy when it was out, it got too tough after a while. I just spent the past half hour scouring through my old CD-Roms trying to find it, but alas, no luck. I'll have to regroup and try again.

No, the problem with EMI is that it is a bad game. Grim Fandango wasn't point and click, and it is one of the best games ever made.
