Impossible to answer, but if I really had to give an answer: Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge.

Has to be Day Of The Tentacle, a great game , and actually damn funny to boot.Plus you can even find a fully playable copy of Maniac Mansion within the game!

No sweat with this one - Monkey Island 2, a classic from start to finish and the adventure I have replayed the most.

I always enjoyed Discworld, but then I love Terry Pratchett's books and sense of humour. It also featured voice acting from Eric Idle, Tony Robinson, Jon Pertwee and Rob Brydon! Awesome.

I dont know if these are scumm or not. But I loved robin hood, conquests of the longbow and the Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes (I think thats what its called). And then theres B.A.S.S and Monkey Island. I cant choose tbh.

Zak McKracken - It was the first adventure game I played, and made me fall in love with the genre.

Ouch... that's a really tricky question. But having to choose one I'd say the CD version of "Day of the Tentacle"... memes a plenty, a lighter hearted look at American history, cracking puzzles, and some excellent humour to boot.

It has to be Loom, as it's the only one I've spent considerable time in. From what I've seen of other games, it does seem to be lacking in any real department (comedy, atmosphere, puzzles, exploration, graphics, music, etc..) and as such I enjoyed playing it a lot. Having said that, it's a shame I never got into all the other great offerings from LucasArts.

Has to be Sam and Max Hit The Road. My best mate Chris and I would borrow his dads soundblaster card and play it in my old 286 (or was it the 386) pc just so we could listen rather than read the speach bubbles. The humor was just brilliant and kept us entertained all through the summer holiday and this madfe me save up for my 1st soundblaster sound card. Maybe its time to get dosbox running and get my old pc disks out of the attic.

really really tough question... but there was nothing more epic at the time than opening that black and silver box to find FIFTEEN floppy discs waiting for you.

having said which, to this day i never checked if the rumours about it originally being planned as a film were true or not, but i would have loved a film version of the dig, regardless.
