my favourites being:
indiana jones - fate of atlantis (my No. 1 game ever)
monkey island - 1 and 2 and 3
Continuing in the game's best traditions. Whilst it might not have has as good puzzles as 2 (remember the fingers in the alley?) the humour was incredible.
Have you ever played Simon the Sorceror? I highly reccomend it, the two of them were essentially the British answer to Monkey Island and very nearly as funny.
Also, get Beneath A Steel Sky if you want to play something now. It was the first game made by the people who went on to make Broken Sword, and it's now out of copyright so free to download from their site. Not hugely humourous, but very, very clever.
And the first two Broken Swords! Incredible, incredible times.
I wish they still made decent point n' clicks. I think Grim Fandango must have been the last 'great' one made.
Grim Fandango. I know it's not strictly a point n' click, but it really is a game that should be experienced by everyone. Artistically it's stunning, I've never seen noir adapted by a game so well.
As I mentioned above, Beneath A Steel Sky. Considering how old it is (it came out in 1994) the graphics and voice acting are admirable, and it's just as good as the Broken Swords 1 & 2 which came after (not any of the others, we don't talk about those):
elaine is hott btw
You've reminded me that I have this in my drawer next to me.
I have an exam on Monday.
If I end up installing and playing this, I blame you.
on the Amiga and thought it was great...Not played a point-and-click since 1994 though!
also on that site, again by the same people, that was good but quite short.
The ones where you can actually die, Steel Sky, temptress Indie have an added element
monkey island 2
discworld noir (discworlds 1 and 2 were a bit TOO fiddly, even for point and click...)
and not ever played it.
Maybe now I will.
