Which Have You Played?

I'm sure not everyone here's been around with Monkey Island since the Amiga days, so I'm wondering: which Monkey Island games have you played?

Personally, I've only played 3. I own four (I picked up 3, 4 and Grim Fandango at once), but I've never played it because of a few reviews that said there were too many in-jokes, so I was hoping to find copies of 1 and 2 that I never did! Well I suppose, in a few months, I'll be able to get 1, at least, but I really don't have an excuse any more. What about you?

  • Unfortunately, I've never played any of them, so I'm a newbie. Please don't make fun of me for that :)

  • All of them sadly. Escape from monkey island was a painful experience indeed.

    I played monkey island back when there was text for inventory items instead of pictures. *feels old*

  • All four, though I never finished Escape. Ye gods I hate the controls on that game... shame.

    Of course, I've reinstalled it today on the back of the news... I will see it through before ToMI Episode 1 gets released.

  • All of them, and I loved every single one of them. Still my favourite franchise to this day.

    You loved escape from monkey island? The story was okay(ish), but it took a decent control system from Grim Fandango, and managed to totally frell it up.

    Played all of them but out of order (strangly enough, my old computer would play part 3 but was incompatable with 1 or 2) still one of my all time favorites ever created of all time and space and in my DNA and seeing how far I can take this and... well that is as far as I can go. Did I say I practiclly memorized all of the quips for the whole insult paragdim (in english only, Australian was too hard)

    He's entitled to his own opinion, you know. Not everybody has to have a negative opinion of MI4.

    Wow really? Where exactly did I badmouth his opinion, or say that it wasn't valid? I was simply going into the reasons *I* didn't like it. Sorry, I didn't know only specific people were entitled to their opinion. ¬.¬

    Well nowhere, except when you were shocked that someone could actually love MI4.

    Maybe I misinterpreted the meaning behind your post. If that is the case, I apologize. :(

    Eh, no big deal. We're all grog-swilling pirates, and all. ^^
