  • ToMI is the fifth game in the Monkey Island Series, therefore it is MI5.

    [/thread]

  • Also:

    @Jake said: We've said a few times that we consider Tales to be the fifth Monkey Island game, in canon along with all the other craziness the last 20 years have brought. If you don't, that's definitely your prerogative. There are people who write off anything past Monkey 2, or anything past Monkey 3, etc, and you obviously can't control that.

    Now, [/thread]

  • They can prove me wrong, but I can't see Lucasarts coming back and doing a Monkey Island 5 . EFMI was the newest adventure by them and I haven't seen them plan to do another. It's a shame cause I love adventure games. At least telltale has put in the effort to bring the genre back.
    As for Ignoring Monkey Island games cause Ron Gilbert didn't do them just seems a little silly to me. If I remember correctly, he liked curse, he just didn't like how Elaine and Guybrush got married, cause he always thought of them as brother and sister. Even Escape had a few enjoyable points in it. It's still my least favorite of the series, but i'm not going to ignore stuff that happened from it just cause I didn't like the game.

  • Well I DO want to ignore the giant robot monkey.

    So you don't remember Full Throttle: Payback, Full Throttle: Hell on Wheels, or Sam & Max: Freelance Police?? :eek: Coz I sure do. Sure, none of them made it to see the light of day, but you clearly said you haven't seen them plan to do another. :p Anyway, I'm glad TTG got Sam & Max as well as Guybrush & Friends. Now if they will pick up Ben and Bobbin we can get the whole crew back together. :cool:

    And while we're on the topic of canceled sequels (hehe), I just looked to see what the difference is between the first planned FT sequel and Duke Nukem Forever (3 years) when I realized that Duke Nukem Forever has the initials DNF. I've played a few racing games and so it strikes me that DNF (at least in racing terms) means Did Not Finish. Ironic much? :D

  • I always feel like this IS MI5 but I guess not. Though I'll always refer to it as so. And if it really is supossed to take place after MI5 and it is infact MI6, then where the hell is MI5!! Haha

  • Oops I worded it wrong. What I meant is Lucasarts hasn't made an adventure game since 2000 and I don't see them planning on making any in the future. It would have been neat if there was a FT 2 or S&M2 like they were talking about but I don't think that's going to happen. They probably don't think it will sell enough which sucks. Sierra pulled the same crap with Space Quest 7 and Leisure Suit Larry 8 and yanked them while in production. It's a shame cause there's a fan base for adventure games and you can see it if you check websites like this one, Adventure Game Studio and other sites.

  • I'm not sure the few people left at Lucasarts have the talent to make a Monkey Island game.
    The Monkey Island Special edition was a little sloppy and that was just a remake.
    If there is to be a new full retail Monkey Island game, make them hire Telltale to make it, and maybe bring on Ron Gilbert and Tim Schafer while they're at it :D

    It is MI5.

    Look at the quotes above from Jake.

  • I can't believe how many people has struggled with this concept. I thought adventurers were supposed be some of the brighter gamers...
