Monkey Island Madness

People who really know me know that The Secret of Monkey Island 2 is my favorite game of all time. It's a perfect sequel and a damn near perfect adventure in its own right. Curse, the original Secret and Escape were all great as well, and the Monkey Island saga will always be my favorite game series of all time (yes, even over the Legend of Zelda titles), and this is why the following excites me more than anything. Only a Grim Fandango sequel could come close.



This is also EXTREMELY cool, but it bums me to no end that it isn't available on the Wii as well.



E3 could end now and I'd be more than satisfied. All I can hope for now is a NEW Zelda for the Wii. I'd also like to see an RE0/1 style remake of RE2 and RE3, but that's just me. Kid Icarus would be cool, like an update or a new game.

You are 100% right , Trist. Monkey Island series is the best adventure game of all time. I remembered those days i used to play MI 2 at my old 486 PC when i was a boy.
...Great post...

Yeah, I could go for some more Grim Fandango. Also? More Space Quest while we're at it.

I don't think I can go 3 months without playing MI2!

Andrew -- I concur. More CLASSIC King's Quest as well! 5 and 6 were among my most played games of all time.

I've always wanted the REAL MI3 - what Ron Gilbert had in mind. In his interviews he talks about how he views Big Whoop and that (while it's a great joke at the end of MI2) he was going to run with it from the point of having Guybrush and LeChuck as kids.

It's so obvious Monkey Island should be on Wii! That and Braid.
