The March 2009 issue of PC Gamer is out, featuring the best games of 2008 in 10 categories. The winner for Best Adventure Game is Sam & Max Season 2.

Yeah, I guess that's nothing you couldn't get from reading the title. And I guess there wasn't exactly a lot of competition. But there it is.

  • That's surprising considering how all the PC Gamer things I've seen about Sam & Max have been rather cruel.

  • PCG UK is generally ... a little less into ... Sam & Max than PCG US, which is occasionally pretty favorable. I think this is the second year we've won an award from them, in fact!

  • I think it deserved to win a lot more awards for writing. I don't think there is another game that comes anywear near Sam and max's humour... consistent laughs throughout the entire season

  • I work in a games shop in the UK and we've had only 2 copies of S&M in since I've worked there last April and I've only been able to sell one, stupid people prefer stuff like Fifa and Halo.

    Yep, Abe Lincoln Must Die was voted Adventure Game of the Year last year. PC Gamer US also gave two Season Two episodes (ep4 and ep5) their Editor's Choice award.

    Yes, exactly. I'm actually surprised that someone is able to dislike these games. Not liking, OK, may not be everyone's cup of tea. But a journalist should know better than downscoring a game based on just that...
