My brother bought the game about two years ago, but I didn't even try it. I thought the skeletons looked really crappy and didn't want to know more. My brother can't speak English (if he doesn't improve his studying I doubt he ever will...) so he got stuck in the work order puzzle and forgot about the whole game.
Later when we bought a new computer most of the games that we both liked either didn't work or we had forgotten the annoying codes, so the only game we could still play was Grim Fandango. With nothing better to do I tried to play it too and tadaa, I was hooked.
I am a materialist so even though I could play the game whenever I wanted it wasn't enough - I had to own it. So, this very day I bought my brother's copy of Grim Fandango with 15€! Yay!
