So about that poll on the front page....

I couldn't help but think that the selection of games on the poll was a little odd. If it was just a general poll to see what games people were most nostalgic for I would have thought that the Broken Sword series would have been mentioned (even though only 3 of them had enjoyable stories and only 2 of them had decent puzzles.... OK, only one had decent puzzles, as BS2 had the most mind-bendingly irrational lateral-thinking I've seen in any game).

(Sometimes when I hear a certain type of car engine in the distance on a temperate summer's day it takes me back to Paris, trying to find out which is Niko's apartment).

I couldn't help but think that the question they were really asking was not "What's your favourite (non-Telltale) adventure game series?", but rather; "Which of these games would you like to see us pursue the rights to?", the response to this being fairly obvious.;)

I know I'm probably reading too much into it, but you can't blame a boy for dreaming, can you?

  • Monkey Island is both so obvious and so unlikely that I'd imagine they'd leave it out of the poll if they were looking for serious options.

    I'd actually like to see the whole poll redone with Monkey Island excluded just to see a more interesting graph.

  • Even though I absolutely love Monkey Island and have lots of nostalgia for it... I had to pick the Gabriel Knight series. It's just that good.

    I had to pick Myst because I... haven't played monkey island.

    Please go easy on the tar/feathers.

    Ah, but maybe they phrased to the question thus to make it less obvious... It might seem obvious that it was one of, if not the, most popular Point and Click, but they can't just make the assumption that TellTale fans would like to see a Monkey Island game above all else, can they?

    OK, they could; I'm being ridiculous. Forget I said it.

    They'd have to make a third poll without myst. They're the only 2 games in the poll I've heard of.

    [edit; changed 'genre' to 'poll'; I've heard of plenty of point and clicks, just none in that list other than MI and Myst]
