Somehow, The MI series seems unrealistic. Although the fact that it is kind of fantasy, I still think some realistic features should be brought under consideration in the making of MI5.

I mean, paddeling in a wooden log on lava....yeah right, very realistic

Realism has never been a particularly strong element of Monkey Island - in fact, often they mock realism. I mean seriously, coffee machines? Huge neon lights? Dude.

But then, I do think EMI went a little far with the whole unrealism thing ... among other things.

Maybe it wasnt wood. Maybe they modified the boats for safety.

Since when have Lucasarts games been "realistic?" It's always been cartoon fantasy with them, which by the way, I don't have a problem with. It sets them apart as unique and fun from the all-too-serious-and-formal Sierra...

Well done detective.:)

Games are an escape from the drudgery of work and family.

I know you're only saying, but would you really prefer to have Guybrush apply for a TV licence, then go down the pub?

I wouldn't. Besides, its funny!
{Sing along!}
#Ohhhhhh,
This lava's hotter
Than a flame broiled otter
and my shoes are slowly melting to the fiber-glass floor#

WAIT! The log wasn't wood! T'was FiberGlass! Hooraya!!

If it was realistic you would propel Guybrush through the office as he tried to meet his report deadlines in time. Contains exciting events as waiting for the copy machine, studying logistics, and math. Wouldn't that be a fun game?
