When you mention the Monkey Island and Sam & Max games, are you talking about the LucasArts ones, or the Telltale ones? If you haven't played them already, all of the Sam & Max seasons from Telltale are great (although I've yet to play their Tales of Monkey Island series).

If you have enjoyed the Back to the Future movies, I'd also recommend Telltale's latest release of "Back to the Future the Game." They are only on the first episode at the moment, but I've really enjoyed it.

And there's always Sierra's King's Quest series from way back when.

Man that new back to the future game is great. and the voice of Marty is AMAZING. If you want to go back in time a bit I definitely recommend kings quest 6.

Speaking of Telltales games, I heard they're going to be rebooting the King's Quest series.

I missed out on most text/graphic adventure games when I was young. Now that I have a decent computer, and now that there's more than two or three available for consoles, I'm not sure if I have time or interest. So if I wanted to appreciate graphic adventures, what would be *one* game to try?

If you have never played a point-and-click adventure game before, you are in for something quite different. You really have to use your head to solve the puzzles and mysteries in these games. Why don't you give the remake of "the Secret of Monkey Island" a try? It is a well respected point-and-click adventure game, and it should just go for around $10 at most sites.

Here's something else I'd like to share with you, if you go to the website of Telltale Games and go to their Sam & Max page, they should still be offering a free download of Sam & Max Season 1 Episode 104: "Abe Lincoln must die!" I love the Sam & Max games (and the comics too!!). If you give that free episode of Sam & Max a try and you happen to take a liking to point-and-click adventure games, then try out the Secret of Monkey Island. Of course, if you like that episode of Sam & Max, I suggest getting the rest of the episodes too.

Anyway, I hope it is okay for me to post the link to Telltale's site... But here it is: http://www.telltalegames.com/
Telltale Games does a great job on their series, and I've really been enjoying their current Back to the Future game. Hope you will enjoy their games too.

The only one that comes to mind are my top favorite, Amnesia and Leisure Suit Larry games. I love LSL
