My Background with this Game:

After briefly scanning the other reviews for this game thus far, I realized I simply had to review it, if nothing more than to provide a better insight into why this game is timeless. Yes, timeless. I know there are some out there who care first and foremost about graphics. And if that’s you, then stop reading. Seriously, you won’t enjoy this game, ... read more

This is so great and fun to play. This is what a really good game is about - it doesn't matter if the graphics are badly dated, it work, you get the idea, and the story is hilarious. Once you get the idea, it's really easy to play, and though it doesn't offer that much of challenge, it's enjoyable to discover what the storyline and the surroundings have to tell you. The sequals are a different sto... read more

Favourite Video Games of All Time (10 games items)

" Year: 1990 Genre: Point-and-Click/Adventure Why it's here: This is another ancient classic of computer game history that was a cornerstone of my childhood gaming. The distinctively whimsical Monkey Island games are simplistic, yet absorbing due to their abundance of personality, humour, and invention. Here's a game that requires its main character to win insult contests and advance by collecting such bizarre items as rubber chickens with pulleys in them. By allowing the player to walk around "

" #1: The Secret of Monkey Island - 1990 LucasFilm Games While there are still some few games being released in this genre, it is long past its heyday. But during its time of popularity, many, many great titles were released, many by LucasFilm Games (later LucasArts). But of all those that I've played, this one is truly the measuring stick for them all, at least for me. No game in this genre quite captivated me--its story, its sense of humor and the bizarre, the puzzles and gameplay, even the a"

Another great review of a fun game! I think DOS games are really underrated today. :)

I know there are some out there who care first and foremost about graphics. And if that’s you, then stop reading. Seriously, you won’t enjoy this game, and it’s simply because the graphics are not cutting edge, graphics card accelerated masterpieces of technology. For you, there are plenty of other games out there. And don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against such graphics. I just happen to appreciate great games, regardless of what level of graphics they have. And besides, I like the graphics of this game. In fact, for me, it’s a part of the ” read more

" This game is a true classic, and an experience you simply must explore if you enjoy adventure games in the least bit. There is truly nothing quite like it out there today, with the witty humor, bizarre puzzles, and vintage graphics. I remember spending hours in this world, exchanging witty comebacks with pirates during duels, concocting a weird recipe to magically transport my ship to Monkey Island, and trying to rescue Governor Marley from the evil Pirate LeChuck.

"#24 - LeChuk We all know that the most badass villains are the ones that never die no matter how many times you try to kill them. The Monkey Island series' antagonist LeChuck has that very quality. A destructive pirate, LeChuck fits that "evil" role well, but he also epitomizes the message that being in love can be rough and even kill you. Infatuated with the beautiful and powerful Elaine Marley, governor of Melee, Booty and Plunder islands, LeChuck becomes determined to marry her. Unfortunatel"
