I'd like everyone to know about my all time favorites games, and they are all from LucasArts. Sam & Max, Monkey Island (which I know brandonc is a fan of), Loom, and Full Throttle are some of the coolest games I've ever seen. They all share a somewhat similar interface and an amazing sense of humor. Each separate game has a great plot that's both really fun to unravel and a great story (several of these games' stories were written by Orson Scott Card, the great author of Ender's Game and many other amazing books.
Another classic game I love is The Journeyman Project.
I really liked all the games in the list but I think there a great one missing in there: Day of the tentacle. It's completely stupid but so funny!
I like most of those old games that run on the SCUMM engine because I can play them on my PDA! ScummVM ports to just about anything. I like to play the old Sierra games too, but they aren't as easy to play without a keyboard to type the commands.
Yes, I did forget Day of the Tentacle. Another great game, but I sadly didn't have the disc long enough to beat the game... But maybe I can get it with Scumm....?
Another great Sierra game: The Incredible Machine, specifically Tim 2. A great puzzle game, though rarely as involving as the LucasArts games which are oh-so good.

Wow... I didn't see this thread... great one Jalshop!
You know... Monkey Island 1 and 2 are (according to me) the greatest videogames ever created...
Fun (a lot), adventure, pirates, treasures and a lot of Grog... I mean... what do you want more than this?
I mean... c'mon...
LEGENDARY MAGICAL ITEMS!!!
In a word... MONKEY ISLAND... and its main character... his name was famous along the seven caribbean seas... when people heard his name they all ran away screaming... his name was the name of the most terrible pirate of the caribbean...

Monkey Island is so amazing. I solved all 4 parts. Loom and the Indiana Jones series were nice, too.
thanks so much. I've been looking for the name of this game for months. I played it some years ago and now I would like to have it again.
Pushover was a funny one, too. That was the game where you had an ant which sorted domino bricks with different features to solve a level.
I've heard Big Rigs was the best PC game ever.
Whatever happens, you're winner, always
Has anybody ever played Big rigs around here ?
