I completed Grim Fandango for the first time yesterday. It was... absolutely fantastic. A well created adventure game with a storyline which you really want to follow.
Unfortunately, as I'm sure some will agree (and disagree), there were the less-than-interesting parts. The petrified forest, and the whole 'sailing / underwater' area was rather dull. But Rubacava more than made up for that...... and how funny was the clown in El Marrow?! heh heh.
I have a couple of questions. I'm not sure if they were answered in the game, but anyway:
What happened to Rubacava when Manny returns? We don't get to learn about the 'mob town', or the curfew imposed. Its far too quiet, and nothing is accessible.
Why was Manny working in the DOD? We hear constant references to his 'punishment', but we never learn of what he did for him to be confined to the department.
I understand that many will say that these questions are 'irrelevant'; but nevertheless, don't we all want to know?
I completed it yesterday, and I've got the GF withdrawal symptoms. It really draws you in, and you actually 'miss' the characters.
Sam & Max 2, Full Throttle 2 cancelled. Grim Fandango hasn't even been given a chance.
Lucasarts has fallen.
