Yeah, where is the option "Monkey what?? give me Thrillville 3 dammit!" ?
No, just kidding, I'm all for MI2:SE. Although I don't personally regard it as being better than MI1. The simplicity of the first Monkey Island had a special appeal to me that I didn't found in the sequel, but I acknowledge that Monkey Island 2 has THE BEST ENDING OF ALL THE VIDEOGAMES IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND (including Tetris..., what? have you not ever finished Tetris?).
