I’m currently playing Grim Fandango Remastered and I’m secretly enjoying the anticipation of continuing with Day of the Tentacle Remastered. I started a few months ago, but have not played much. With Grim Fandango I noticed that it’s more fun playing the game with the original box that it came in at hand and the original manual in front of me. It simply adds to the experience.
Therefore I noticed that I’m becoming more serious about collecting the games that I played back in the day and also the games that I want to play. So when I saw an add for three classic Lucasarts point and click adventure games in pristine state, I simply couldn’t resist. Although I have the physical release of these games in the LucasArts Classic Collection, those are nothing more that a DVD slip case with only the CD or DVD inside. I also have the digital version of the remasters of DotT and Full Throttle, but that’s only digital and therefore meh.
Although not exactly Ebay prices, I probably payed too much for these. And I expect to pay more for the other games from LucasArts that are on my wishlist. O, and I also got Feeble Files…
The (wish)list of classic LucasArts adventure games is as follows (games I own in bold):
- Maniac Mansion (1987)
- Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders (1988)
- Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989): Got the Atari ST small box version
- Loom (1990)
- The Secret of Monkey Island (1990): Had the big box PC version.
