Rate the Game: Week 113

It's that time of the week again, ladies and gentlemen! We're so close to the end of this ride we can almost taste it. What other sorts of tasty games do we have left to tackle in the weeks to come? First thing first, we've got to take care of last week's full course meal, Dark Souls. Only 2 brave souls dared to tread its waters but let's see what their thoughts on their journeys end up doing for it. How about it, leaderboard?



A 3.5 splits it down the middle and Dark Souls ends up being able to get over the hump fairly well. We commend you for being so bold to dare to accept its challenges.

Time for a new dare, though. Week 113 needs a game to rate so let's get to it. What's next for us, bowl?

via GIPHY



Well, damn. I know we've gone back to the distant past for some of these titles but how about we go plundering the distant PC gaming past? It's the early days of floppy disks and point-and-click as this week we take a gander at LucasArts' The Secret of Monkey Island! This game was pirates before pirates were cool...or was it? What do you all think? Let's cue up the shanties and brew the grog and prep our insults as we share our thoughts on this entry. Until next week!




No matter what may happen to me, just remember Lzzy Hale gave me the bedroom eyes...



...again.

Well, if nothing else, this breaks my streak as far as games I haven't played. This was one of the first games I ever played on a computer, right up there with Oregon Trail.

Forgot all about King's Quest. It basically set the template for these kinds of games in the years that followed.

This little mini-doc is a nice look at the game in question, plus it covers other point-and-click titles like King's Quest and Maniac Mansion as its precursors. The latter was always one of those titles kids in school would pass around in conversation but I never stumbled across it in any form.

One thing I can praise about these types of computer games, hell I'll throw in the Carmen Sandiego titles as well, is they were about making you think but you were still enjoying yourself. I know this genre took a major dip in popularity as time went on but I would imagine it'd be terrific fit for the mobile device scene. Or is it all word games and Candy Crush?

Heck, I remember consulting an atlas as a kid for Carmen Sandiego. Anything that makes a kid look in a book like that has gotta be considered a success. I guess nowadays the kids would just use google or wiki to find the answer almost instantaneously... but I remember just searching through that atlas, really wanting to get that rank promotion....

What is the one with the little kid and his flahlight wearing a read hat and a brown backpack. He tries to get into a library but it's locked so he has to go down the basement stairs to try and sneak in. Graphics looked 16 bit-ish.

I only ever got to play Where in the U.S.A. Between some of the rather tricky geographical clues and the somewhat weird to my young mind terms they used to describe certain physical attributes of the V.I.L.E. villain who you were tasked with apprehending in a certain time period made it especially daunting. I remember always thinking that if there was 2 or 3 suspects with similar attributes, did I accidentally choose the wrong one? Waiting when I got to the place where they were and hoping to see the paddy wagon with the right suspect in the back was so nerve-wracking.

I instinctively thought of the Hugo series of games when reading Vic's question even though it's clearly not what he was talking about. Those games along with The Secret of Monkey Island were discovered by me almost simultaneously. If I'm recalling correctly, one of the kids I knew from taking the bus home after school had a brother in high school. Our grade would be dismissed earlier than the high school students so he would go to the high school library, chill there and wait for his brother. The library had these games installed on the computers there and one day I got invited to check it out. It certainly helped kill the time waiting for the bus in a much better fashion than sitting under a fucking tree. They were nothing like anything I'd played before, requiring a bit more mental sharpness. If these kinds of games were the Food Pyramid, stuff like Doom and the Konami beat-'em-ups were the junk food from the convenience store.

Here’s a blank check. Write it for as much hush money as you need to make this all go away, nice and smooth-like, see? 😎

I probably gotta watch a youtube of "top 20 90s point and click adventure games" or something

Checked the covers of each game from 1990-1998 nothing sticks out. Is there a reddit for finding lost media?
