The best adventure games (Part 2)

The best adventure games (Part 2)

Grim Fandango

Conversation, character, and imagination contribute to make Grim Fandango to be the best adventure games. Built in the Mexican Land of the Dead, where everybody is either a skeleton or a demon, the recently deceased must work to put off any crimes they may have committed before starting the treacherous four-year journey to the Ninth Underworld. It is a fantastic world with film noir impacts, crime and corruption.

The game begins with some of the finest characters ever written, such as protagonist Manny Calavera, who attempts to save Mercedes Colomar, the woman he thinks he failed to protect. The car-obsessed demon Glottis would not be more outdated in the Disney/Pixar movies, and Manny is one of the coolest characters in an adventure game. The often challenging puzzles can affect the pacing, however, thanks to the discovery and interacting with this beautiful world makes up for these drawback.

Tim Schafer’s endeavor through Mexican folklore is the pinnacle of the nice movie-quality storytelling in video games.

Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge

While The Secret of Monkey Island altered the genre and placed LucasArts on the Adventure Throne, Monkey Island 2 is a perfect upgrade in every area.

Loveable Guybrush Threepwood is one of the most endearing characters with his burning desire to become a pirate to win the heart of governor Elaine Marley who wants nothing to do with him. In addition to that, the problem lies in his utterly inept, with more confidence than capability as well as his dab hand at ruining lives. He is also being threatened by the zombie pirate LeChuck, whose ghost he once killed in the first game. 

All that make up a witty and regularly laugh-out-loud game with dialogue and situations wildly memorable as well as challenging but amusing puzzles.

Monkey Island 2 is the top of the outrageous comedy adventure and one of the top adventure games on PC. They can not be any funnier than this, and the Special Edition are designed to make this point-and-click game even funnier with pitch-perfect voice acting, painted backgrounds, and a amusing soundtrack.
