Are you sure? My impression was that the humour in said licenced game matches the humour of the franchise the licence comes from.
This is definitely not the case. There are still enough adventure games released that are original and aren't part of any licence. This may not seem the case with TellTale but to me it looks like that was a deliberate choice. And I like it so far. I like revisiting 'forgotten' franchises and seeing new life breath into them. It's huge fanservice to a lot of people. Fans of Sam and Max got new games. Fans of Wallace and Gromit got a new game. Fans of Monkey Island got a new game.
And now fans of BttF(like myself) get a game. =)
and you'll see that enough adventure games are still released that aren't built upon an exisiting licence. Whether the games are of good quality is a different matter. In a world where there are countless of Adventure Game companies one is bound to handle the licenced material. And I am glad TellTale is that company.
For the first time I completely agree with you, might be the second time. Things are just on the net more now a days than they used to be. There's many good games out there that we all ignore, pretend don't exist.
AVS was almost a new classic if it weren't for it's non-finished feeling. Star Wars has been milked for like almost 40 years, so why can't other franchises that are arguably just as deserving, have a little fun?
