What are your all-time favorite adventure game jokes?
My list would have to include...
MANIAC MANSION DEATH GAGS
+ Getting Razor to microwave and give the dead hamster to Weird Ed is probably the most twisted and demented gag of all, but in a warm and cuddly kind of way.
+ Drowning your buddy in the nuclear reactor cooling pool.
+ Microwaving the pool water. I like how the character runs around the kitchen like a chicken with it's head cut off yelling "Ahhhhh! Radioactive steam!"
+ Showing the Green Tentacle your record contract.
+ Playing the tentacle mating call record for the Green Tentacle. I like this joke because it's romantic.
+ The various ways of blowing up the house, and the awesome music that follows.
They're all brilliant!
SPACE QUEST 3
+ Sneaking into Scumsoft, and facing Elmo Pug. The whole Scumsoft thing was the perfect parody of Microsoft's reaction to software pirating. I wonder if software managers still have bull whips at software companies.
+ Thermal weave underwear for extreme heat. Classic.
The list could go on and on...
