Ahh... this is a hard one, since we dont really have a PC section, but since the 1st line of the game was Sega Cd, it can go here. =)
The Secret of Monkey Island..
Man, where do I begin.. so many memories of this and all of them are jumbled between Monkey Isle 1 and 2. A classic game of puzzles, wits, humor and drama! You are Guybrush Threepwood, a "pirate" so you like to call yourself, even though everyone one ELSE laughs lol. Tripping over things, your the oddball who always saves the day from the evil pirates.
I remember when I first played this, so many word games to make you laugh, 2 headed monkeys, voodoo dolls, grog spitting and more. Not to mention a certain "used" boats salesman who talked very much like a pushy scamartist lol. (Too bad his soda vending machine didnt work till the end of the game hah!)
Hell, I think everyone remembers the classic "Woodchuck" word games. I think the other fun things about this game was the fighting style, where you HAD to use the right "word" phrases to beat your enemy. Sooner or later once you know what words and phrases to use after you learn them, they will complain. "Your using the grandmasters words! No fair!" or something like that lol.
Hot dog lighthouse stands, erm.. hell.. too much to remember lol, that and I am getting them mixed in with Monkey Isle 2 lol.
For the time, the game graphics was simple, but the puzzles themselves were hard. Storyline was great as well. Including the "PSST" backalley guy trying to sell a map heh.
Having your friends be pirates who one has a peg leg, a rat, and so on, you go on your journies. Your Voodoo friend also has some interesting things.. and I loved how in the 2nd one he acts like he changed lol.
I dont think there are that many people here who dont remember this game.. or least have heard about it.
But if you havent played it, I would say go for it, if you like a cute adventure game of point and click. Since its easy for "Use" (item) on (item) or something similar. Least it wasnt like Space Quest 1 and all typing. >.<
I havent played 3 or beyond yet.. dont know why. =/ Guess timewise. Heh.
How many of you played this game and which one do you like the most? What was the hardest thing you remember having to do?
The ONLY one I remember that was hard off the top of my head was Grog spitting. (Getting the colors just right to spit the best) and having to go into the cliff to get that Oar for your boat.
