Just thought that you guys and girls might like to see this:

P.S. Grim is THE best adventure game ever! Shame I lost the discs 2 years ago.

It says Mercedes was a deceased nun. Was she? I don't remember that detail being mentioned in the game.

Gamespot like them some Grim. They gave it their PC game of the year award in 1998, and this was in the same year Half Life was released.

But no, Meche wasn't a nun.

I'm sure they'd pimp powdered cat **** if it meant an extra buck.

I'm going to compile a page listing the various awards, features and such GF has received during the past years, if anybody wants to save me some time and post the links to a few then I'll be extremely thankful.

I obviously have this one documented, plus a scan of the PC Gamer Top 100 thingy.

Grim Fandango 2 is the best adventure game next to The Longest Journey and Syberia. It is my opinion, but many magazines agree with that.

If somebody doesn't know above-mentioned games, please click on these links.
