    Yes, point and click.

    Did you enjoy ANY of the old Lucasarts adventure games? If you've avoided them because they're point and click, you're missing out on some of the finest games ever crafted.

    I don't know, I am a bit turned off by the screenshots. The old Sam and Max seemed to capture the comic book world a lot better. The screenshots don't look wacky and outlandish enough to be the Sam and Max I remember. The world should look crazy, but it looks bland compared to the Sam and Max I am used to.

    this doesn't change the truth in what he said, CC :O

    I can understand if you're too jaded for it now, but if you want to see the world through our childhood eyes, or just play -- in my opinion -- the finest single library of games by far, download the LucasArts' SCUMM VM, and check em out. They're all point and click, but, well, it was a different time, and, well, I bet some of these puzzles tax your brain and amuse you more than any modern RPG. :razz:

    I just beat it (in about 2 hours, intentionally doing everything possible)

    It's classic Sam and Max! Seriously!

    It's a bit easier than Hit the Road, because of the brevity.

    I laughed out loud more than once.

    @Cartoon Corpse:

    I was like 4 when those games came out, it's not an excuse. Seriously. Dig up a torrent (I know i've seen more than one) if nothing else. Obviously Hit The Road is great; but so is Day of The Tentacle, Maniac Mansion, the whole Monkey Island Series, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.... I could go on.:)

    I remember trying to get Sam and Max Hit the Road to work years ago, and only getting it to run without the sound (which takes away sooo much from the game). I should really give it another try with SCUMM VM, and also some of the other games. I've never played Day of the Tentacle and I've heard so much good stuff about it. Yay for people taking the time to make some of the old classics run on the new machines.

    All of the games I mentioned work perfectly in SCUMMVM now, with sound and everything :)
