They were... in a sort of, want-to-throw-the-monitor-out-the-window kind of way.

The Haunted Mansion! That was it. I thought it was something like that but I just didn't want to look stupid.

Honest...

I'll let you off. Look how small these games are to download! They're smaller than mojo's main page.

The first adventure game (and also first video game, for that matter) I ever played was King's Quest 3. I had no idea what the main goal of the game was, but I loved it. I think it took me around 3 years to complete that one, but it definitely got me on the path to playing further adventure games.

Those Hugo games were kinda fun. That whole shareware explosion of the mid-to late-nineties still leaves me singin the blues (in the shower [naked {alone}]).

I think that was the general idea


There's also a game that's very similar to Hugo's House of Horror called 'Maddog Williams', and it's actually pretty funny in places - Or it was when I was 11. I remember having them all on one of those cheesy '1000 Games' compilations.

I had a thousand game compilation. What a load of jizz. One thousand games that some useless pillocks made with Klik and Play.

it's grims fault

I think once a game has sequals then it should stay one type like monkey island 1 -3, insted of constantly changing ,
Gim Fandango was a good game because it was it's own story and started out in 3d (i think it would of sucked if it was in 2d) with 2D you can get so mutch more detailed charictures and backgrounds

Guybrush guy: That was exactly what people complained about when MI3 came out though. That it was too much like the previous games, and not different enough.

yes!

Yes there was no big change but, going from the point and click 2d graphics to keyboard only, 3d graphics is a MAJOR change, and MI3 was actually a pretty decent game and had similarities to the 1'st and 2'nd MI games. with MI 4 you had more limitations and it took to long to do the simplest thing such as getting something out of the inventory.
But I see your point and I’m just expressing my opinion .

I thought that the 3D interface of Monkey Island was brilliant, although it did lack the atmosphere of the first two games (Not really atmospheric in CMI either).

But anyway, Let's face it. If Lucas Arts didn't step up to 3D, then the section devoted to Adventure Games would slowly gather dust, until BLAM. Star Wars games ruled the world.

The 3D-ness of Monkey Island also worked great on the PS2, and helped to create a whole new Adventure fanbase (although they might not know it yet), and the success of the game means that LEC will be willing to invest in more adventure games, such as Full Throttle 2, Sam & Max 2, Maniac Mansion 3, and those 5 new original titles that they're making (PLZ GOD).

Grim Fandango did come into its own, and worked a lot better than EMI due to sheer brilliance. You could smell the cigarette smoke. But EMI did have its moments, and deserves a little respect.

Viva la 3D gamés

DOTT 2 (MM3) better happen. I don't care if they bugger up the story, I just love the characters.

I like the idea of a Manic Mansion 3 (or Day of the Tentacle 2, if you prefer) but what would they do about a story?


Jolly good.

Well, it would probably be the easiest game to sequel-ize really, because there are many many possibilites.

I liked the voice acting in DOTT!!! It was very life like, and the voices of the main characters were hilarious!

Yeah, next time those lousy actos should try and make their voices sound a little less...compressed. In fact, they should hide in your speakers and voice-act at exactly the right time or be force fed Marmite & Squirrel sandwiches.

King's Quest III, back when it first came out. I'm 19 so I was probably way too young to get anywhere in it, but it was cool.

Current Game: FM2007. Perpetually.
My dad's mate from work made him a copy of "Fate of Atlantis" onto some floppies, and he showed them to me. FoA was really a great game, wasn't it?
Then again, it could have been SoMI or MI2...I can't really remember, but I think it was Fate of Atlantis. Sam & Max was tthe very first CD-ROM game we got.
