This screenshot (http://www.freeoldies.com/screenshotbank/m6a12qdm2k.gif) caught my eye recently, so I wanted to know if this game just a poor SCUMM clone, or is it worth looking out for?

I Have no Mouth and I must Scream was released properly. Its based on one of the bestselling books ever, apparantly. Anyway, I have it. Not the best graphics or voice acting, but very very warped. I never played it properly, but you can choose one of 5 characters to play as. There's this computer called AM, and it has imprisoned them all. Its odd, so odd. I played as this Nazi doctor, and there were people climbing over barbed wire... I had to operate on a child as well, remove some organ. Not in a medical sense, if you follow. The kid becomes paralysed... its sick, its really creepy. I recommend it to serious adventure game fans only, anyone just looking for a bit of fun game will not find it here.

Oh, I hate games with that creepy, depresing, sick story.

But it sounds so original and different! I mean... five characters? Oh the possibilities!

But if you want a good, serious adventure game, then get The Last Express! It is the best game ever (ever, ever)!

Please don't say it's the best game ever. Sorry but I hate it when people say things like that. And besides, Electronic Gaming Mounthly says that super Metroid is.

Super Metroid on the SNES?? Lol, no, that is not the best game ever.

Besides, everyone knows that Grim Fandango is the best game ever (ever, ever)!

Yeah, it was a damn fine game. But not in my top 10 list. Maybe top 100, 50 at a pinch.

The Last Express is by far the best game ever made.

I would be grateful if you could upload a demo, lucastones :)

Its ok. It might take a few days to find and upload it, especially if it has speech (as I think it does.) I'll see if it works without the speech if it does have it, cos it'll be massive with it.

Just because it's made by Lucasarts doesn't mean it's the best game ever.

That's not why it's the best game ever. I think that it would be better if games were rated by genre, because this way no true number one will ever be found. Anyone who likes FPS's will vote Half Life, we'd all vote Grim or Monkey, Action fans'd go for metal gear solid, etc etc.

you can download the full game with sound and everything else at www.the-underdogs.org the game is pritty good but the concept is kind of weard and the puzzles are a little to easy, but if i had to give it a number between 1 and 10, i would give it a 8 maybe a 7

i just went to the underdogs web cite and it turns out you cant downlaod the game anymore, but i just put it on kazza so all you have to do is download it, my connection is going to be rather slow because, i'm the only one with the file so you will only get about 20 k a sec, but the more people who download the faster it will become. sorry for the inconvience.

Grim Fandango is certainly one of the best games EVAR.

If I were to pick my 10 favourite games and place them in no apparent order, the list would probably look a little bit like this, maybe:

Grim Fandango [PC]
Monkey Island [PC]
Monkey Island 2 [PC]
Day Of The Tentacle [PC]
Final Fantasy VII [PC/PSX]
Super Mario World [SNES/GBA]
Zelda: Ocarina of time [N64]
Super Smash Bros [N64]
Goldeneye [N64]
Zelda: Oracle of Ages/Seasons [GBC]

And if I had to take 10 games to a desert island, they would be:

Final Fantasy IX [PSX]
Final Fantasy X [PS2]
Pro Evolution Soccer 2 [PS2]
Street Fighter Alpha 3 [DC]
Super Smash Bros Melee [GC]
Goldeneye [N64]
Half-Life (w/Mods & DSL line) [PC]
The Sims (w/Mods) [PC]
Zelda: Majora's Mask [N64]
Tetris [GB]

Let's not bring this up again. I know that everybody has their own opinion about the best game ever. What I think it is? I think it's...



















NOTHING! I don't even want to think about it! The answer to this question would very well, would drive us all insane!

Hmmm, I always thought that the old Mario 64 was up there with the best of them. but I see your point; close this thread down now!! For our sanity!
