Also keeping grounded to familiar locations helps me stay "in the zone" of being in a persistent Sam and Max world.
Presently we saw it three months ago. When all the episodes are out and someone plays through them all, the gap between seeing all these returning locations and characters is going to be much smaller. Sure, it grounds you familiarity, but wouldn't you rather explore new places? Meet new people? I know I would.
