View Full Version : I want Guybrush dead. Yes, dead.

01-04-2001, 07:47 PM
When LucasArts makes Monkey Island V, I think it should be the last game in the series.

My hopes are that it is not only longer, but more indepth then any of the previous games.

Finally, I think they should somehow have Guybrush die at the end, saving his life so that LeChuck could be eternally forgotten and Elaine could live without fear.

When Guybrush dies, LucasArts could simply bring in Mr. Manny Calavera to finish the job.

No, i think they should have Elaine divource Guybrush! She should go off and live with Timmy!

What's with all these radical ideas? I'll have to agree with you ZeroXcape about ending the series though. If MI could go out with a bang, one really great game, I'd be much happier than seeing MI after MI, and each become lesser and lesser in quality.

Instead of Manny, what about Sam 'n Max? They haven't been doing much in awhile.

Hmm... MI is getting quite old, but never TOO old...

I mean... MI5 should be done but it should contain something revolutionary, something really new, and it should be large...

or then not done at all.

guybrush dead sounds good to me, i mean all good things in life must come to an nd (sienfeld) and 10 years + of MI seems like enough.

LEC needs to make some fresh new games that are "get in your face" kinda games, like stupid invaders, but not necessarily 3d and WAY lonnger.

So much for taking the world by storm, looks like i'll be taking it by siege.

Yeah, and we all know how well Seinfeld ended.

Guybrush: Do you know anything about lifting curses?
Murray: Oh Yeah, I know a lot about lifting curses.
That is why I am a disembodied talking skull, sitting on top of a pike, in the middle a swamp.
Guybrush: You seem bitter.
Murray: I'm sorry it's been a rough day.

01-30-2001, 10:30 PM
hhmmm.... you make a good point, but i still think that it needs to ene, with a good ending so LEC can move on to better projects, MI is a reat series, but its more mi, don't u think that it would be great to play something COMPLETELY new.?

01-30-2001, 10:38 PM
I love Monkey Island. The More the better!!! I seriously cant wait for another one!! Except i think maybe Guybrush needs a new enemy perhaps? LeChuck cant "live" forever. http://www.escapemi.com/forums/biggrin.gif http://www.escapemi.com/forums/biggrin.gif http://www.escapemi.com/forums/biggrin.gif http://www.escapemi.com/forums/biggrin.gif

They tried that with Ozzie, but it didn't really work.

01-31-2001, 03:53 PM

well, I think Guybrush's death would be quite sad but acceptable... what if he would just vanish? I mean, retire from piratism even not becoming a REAL pirate?


01-31-2001, 08:25 PM
nope, he NEEDS to die, if not LEC will find some way to make him "reappear" or something.

while we are killing lucasfilm characters, lets kill all of the ones in the starwars games, then LEC can focus more on adventure games.

02-01-2001, 02:38 PM
Guybrush CANNOT die.

He RULES! I mean, the series won't be the same without him...

Guybrush is the best character in the game, and I think he's the best because he's the ULTIMATE HERO.

02-01-2001, 03:47 PM
Guybrush is a veery cool character. But as newfoundgloryboy said, he must die. The sad thing is what about Dominic Armato. He won`t have a job. I`m sure it will be hard for him to wirk in an LEC game later, because his fans(memememe)will have trouble accepting it. Well, it has to be done.

Guybrush: Do you know anything about lifting curses?
Murray: Oh Yeah, I know a lot about lifting curses.

02-04-2001, 10:23 PM
I think mi5 will be better than ever, I dont want guybrush to die, but live happily ever after or perhaps come back for mI6!! I just love adventure games there is not enough of them?? anyone played any other good adventures recently?

02-05-2001, 11:39 AM
I agree with Frenchyd! Guybrush can NEVER die. But he needs a new enemy, LeChuck can't live forever. It is begining to seem stupid. Maybe LEC could introduce Guybrushs son in a future game. The son of Elaine and Guybrush? Neat...

02-07-2001, 01:15 AM
Well, the series has been based totally on Gybrush and it really does not seem appropriate to remove him forcefully after 5 installments...But the idea of his children taking up where he left off is a good one. They might be the ones to finally destroy LeChuck. 'Dad found him, we killed him.... http://www.escapemi.com/forums/biggrin.gif '

02-07-2001, 11:29 PM
Guybrush should not die, at least not properly. Having him mysteriously dissappear or perhaps become an undead pirate with mystical powers like LeChuck, doomed to sail the seas forever righting wrongs or something would be OK, but to actually kill him is absurd.
MI is a COMEDY series. How on earth would they kill Guybrush and make it funny? A dramatic serious death would be totally inappropriate. And even if they did find a funny way to kill Guybrush, should they? Being offed with some silly gag is less than he deserves.

I think it would be hard to put an end at the Monkey Island serie.
Even if Guybrush dies they're gonna do another game, with someone else as maincharacter (his som as someone sais) or a game before his death like between any of the old MI games.
Cause LEC knows that there are many MI fans and a new game would sell.

I think a dramatic ending would be great. You could have Guybrush die and it would be his funeral. Elaine would be crying as the white coffin is put on the boat. ALL the characters that Guybrush met would be there. They would set the ship on fire and snd it out to see. The credits roll as gentle piano music plays the MI tune and the boat slowly moves to the horizon. Eventually the only thing left would be the open sea, and 'Monkey Island' would appear slowly in the sky as the sea laps quietly.

The series has ended, Guybrush is dead. It would be great. It's touching me right now, and I am Not joking about that. It really is. I think it would make the ending final, memorable and great. What does everyone think?

02-09-2001, 10:45 PM
I think that's sickingly cheesy, predictable and 100% unoriginal. Plus, the Monkey Island games are primarily funny. That sort of ending would be utterly nonsensical.
I'm not trying to be insulting, this is just honest opinion, but I think you take MI waaaay too seriously http://www.escapemi.com/forums/wink.gif

02-12-2001, 01:38 PM
I don't necissarily agree that the series has to end, but they need new ideas. I've played MI since the first game was released, and the first two were great, but now...it's just gotten sad. The games are too short, and they use too many re-used jokes. The game is seriously lacking in creativity. The charecters invented lately haven't been that funny really (aside from Murry, who was pathetic in the fourth game, but awsome in the third). In my opinion, they've either got to make the fifth return the series to its former glory, or just kill it off. Because if we get something as short as 3 or 4 again, I won't be a fan when number 6 comes out.

02-19-2001, 09:03 PM
I love Monkey Island. The More the better!!! I seriously cant wait for another one!! Except i think maybe Guybrush needs a new enemy perhaps? LeChuck cant "live" forever. I aggre with Frenchy too because it gets old LEC coming back over and over again.

I can still hear the Monkeys

Maybe Guybrush dies and end up with a dead battle with LeChuck. LeChuck want a new body and will take Guybrush`s body. But he needs a "thing" to do it, and Guybrush must find it before LeChuck do. Or maybe he ends up in the otherworld as Manny J. Calavera.

I actually just started getting into MI very recently. I was given MI3 as a gift, and then went out and bought MI4 myself. I have really enjoyed playing MI3 and MI4, almost to the point of forgetting to do my actual job. I am wondering, though, if I shouldn't have begun with MI3. Would it be worth it for me to go back and play the first two? Are they really that much better?

MI3 would be the best of the series, but MI1 and 2 are still very well worth your while playing.

03-01-2001, 05:28 AM
Yeah guybrush dead! And then Elaine or Murray or even LeChuck have to revenge his death with tons of weapons!

No serious, it would sure be refreshing to see him dead, but I don't think the new caracter would be as funny as him (unless they put Rinzwind in)


The Feral Chicken
03-01-2001, 04:41 PM
No, CMI isn't the best! You're dumb! MI1 is WAY better, and MI2 is even better still! In fact, MI2 IS the best!



03-01-2001, 09:54 PM
MI3 is best! It's funnier, more ingenious, has the benefit of great voice acting, pretty pictures, lovely music, better puzzle structure, better dialouge. Alright, it has an awful ending but these other merits more than make up for it.

The Feral Chicken
03-02-2001, 03:36 PM
You're wrong again

MI2 is much, MUCH funnier, MUCH more ingenious, has really nice watercolour pictures, brilliant music, A much better puzzle structure, and the dialouge is a lot better. And the ending is a lot better.

My main concern for you is that you think it has better puzzle structure, better dialogue, and is funnier. No way! The puzzles in MI2 are ingenious, the dialogue is the funniest I have seen, and it is way FUNNIER!



03-02-2001, 10:37 PM
I think this is a kind of dead end argument really. I think MI3's better than MI2 and you think MI2's better than MI3 and I can't think of any way we're gonna resolve it so never mind huh? lol

03-06-2001, 03:07 AM
one way to solve this INSULT SWORD FIGHTING!!!!!! or..... we sould vote i vote for cmi!


03-06-2001, 08:15 AM
They've done all sorts of votes/polls and MI3 consistently wins (except for one I'm aware of where oddly, MI1 won) so that's no good Timmy, it obviously doesn't convince Feral, and there's no reason it should really. Just because the majority of people think something it doesn't mean he should think it too.

03-07-2001, 12:17 PM
Whats the point in killing him in the next series,? i say they go on for 8 or 9 THEN he dies.! Not that i want him to though.....

Id say guybrush should die in 5. but he should die by trying to beat lawyers for a contract. he hates lawers you know.

If you are reading this that means you are married and I am dead..........I'm sure you've chosen someone I would be proud to call grandson

03-09-2001, 08:47 AM
Members of the 'Guybrush should die' cult should be aware, that Lucasarts have already used the 'Guybrush dies in this one' gimmick on the back of the box for MI3.
I don't really think they're going to use the same routine again...
Then again, we've collected a ship and crew in three of four games...

Which polls are these??? In these types of polls I usually see MI2 winning

Guybrush dead no. A good ending in the series so they don't have to make a sequel.

MI1's ending was perfectly happy/conclusive.
A happy ending in no way prevents a sequel, you should know that http://www.escapemi.com/forums/wink.gif
There are only two things needed to get a sequel made:
A) They want to
B) The last one sold well

A skilfull team of writers can get around any ending in order to carry it on.

03-12-2001, 06:33 PM
When Guybrush meets Meathook he says:
"I can't be killed. I've got an unbreakable five-game contract!"

I think we can be assured there will be an MI5 but after that, if killed in MI5, they can always continue with a little Guybrush Jr!

I had only played MI3 and halfway thru MI4 so i cant really say which is the best. http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif

I can say I would love to see more of Guybrush, but having him dead or mysteriously lost in the game seems a neat idea.

Ending the MI series though , I disagree with it. A new series could come out, but wouldnt it be the same, mysteries solving , bla bla this and that? =)
MI just new a brand fresh new idea like most of u agreed. http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif

In MI6 Guybrush can be the new Herman T. and Guybrush Junior can go looking for him.

tull haven't talked with you in a while. Well what I'm saying is that if they didn't want to make anymore MI games they should end it with a bad ending so then they would have to make anther one wich isn't would mean to write anoter one that they didn't want to do in the first place
