    could you imagine other people putting that many hours into anything else and not getting ANY answers at all?


    LOST. Heroes. Blizzard Entertainment. Duke Nukem. Mysterious internet countdown clocks. Announcements of announcements. The posts on this forum between episodes of any Telltale series.

    The Matrix. Half Life Episode 3.

  • No-one knows The Secret of Monkey Island, I'm not even sure Gilbert does :D Maybe Chuck Norris.

  • IMO the thing that truly make MI unique are the fans. Go to any adventure game discussion, and MI will sooner or later come out in some form or references. It was the yardstick of adventure gaming in the heydays, and the fans still hold the game very close to heart.

    MI is not even cultish like Sam & Max, Space Quest or Zak McKraken. It is mainstream with lots of fans, who could still recall fondly of the previous installations.

  • PariahKing pretty much said what I wanted to say.

    Also, I think what really helps this game is Guybrush's motivation. There are two types of heroes, the ones that rush toward adventure and the ones that are just waiting for it to end. Guybrush really enjoys his adventures. There is this glow of excitement and curiousity in his eyes, that really makes us like him. Dominic Armato really captures that with his voice. And unlike other famous franchises who are back just for the money, our Guybrush is just as positive and charged with spirit as day one. Heh, remember when Indiana Jones was like that?

  • The secret of Monkey Island...

    Isn't it the same as the secret to limitless power in Kung Fu Panda?

  • So, just for fun... was there even a mention of a secret of Monkey Island in The Secret of Monkey Island?

  • yep.

    Everyone on Mélée told you Le Chuck died while trying to discover the Secret of Monkey Island, in order to impress Elaine.

    I think there was a few more references but i don't quite remember them.

  • Ah right, Estevan mentions it. Forgot about that.
