What was the worst?
 
What was your least favorite Lucasarts created game? For me it would probably have to be...umm...well...you tell me yours first!

Least favorite Lucasarts adventure game or Lucasarts game in general?

For the adventures, I couldn't get into the Dig, but lots of people love it, and it's not like I hate it or anything, it just didn't hold my interest much and certain puzzles confused the hell out of me (though I think I figured out the bone puzzle on my own).

I actually, don't kill me, but I was pretty disappointed with Day of the Tentacle.

I didn't play DOTT until a couple years ago. I thought it was funny but incredibly easy. Probably if I'd played it years and years ago I would have been more attatched to it like a lot of people in the Mojo/AGamers communities.

I kinda would have to agree, I couldn't get into the dig, maybe because I was only elementary when I first tried it, but the puzzles did stump me.

When I think about it, I really want to play it again to see if I'd gotten any smarter or more tasteful.

I dug the Dig...no pun intended. It's been a while since I've played it though.

Maniac Mansion. Lucasarts' early (first?) adventure, was more annoying than fun. Thankfully their adventure games have improved greatly since.

I never finished Maniac Mansion because nothing motivated me into continuing. However, it's not exactly fair to judge a game that I only started, so I will have to go with...

spoiler:
Full Throttle. The plot and characters rocked, but the theme didn't appeal to me at all.

Yeah, Maniac Mansion...
 
Yeah, maniac mansion was probably one of my least favorites. There has been a lot of talk on the forums about graphics compared to gameplay, and how if you have amazing gameplay but terrible graphics, it can still be ok atleast. The thing was maniac mansion, had such bad graphics in my eyes (even for that time) and just an Ok story line, that it just stunk for me. Also, the little song at the beginning made me afraid that my computer was gonna blow up!
Click, Click, Clickclick, click, click. Boop. It didn't come from the speakers either, it came directly from the tower!! AHH STOP THAT NOISE AHHH!

I couldn't get into The Dig either :(

I'm going to have to go for Maniac Mansion, the way you had to press a button before the game would tell you that you'd moved your mouse over a hotspot really ticked me off.

What I hated in Maniac Mansion was that you could die. I managed to kill two of my characters (the first tried a recording at Green Tentacle's room, the tentacle mistook it for a mating call, charged at my character, and, uh... The second died when she put radioactive water in the microwave) and got so frustrated that stopped playing all together.

"Funny, I thought you couldn't die in Lucasarts games."

Kjlen 04-23-2005 01:59 PM

Hmm, I haven't played a lot of LucasArts games, so I can't have a decent opinion. However, I'm glad so far no one has said "Monkey Island". :D
