Not even close.
Damn! Looks like I might have to play one of these games just to say that I've played a point and click game!
Well the only one I have played for more than 10 mins is B.A.T on the ST, by Ubisoft I think.

The fact that it has not been mentioned in this thread (therefore most likely Crap) probably means I haven't actually played one either :shock: .

yeah, I was going to mention this brilliant series but didn't as thought retro only, I'm just playing through series two at the moment and it's fantastic, Clementine is one of gamings great female characters.

I love point and click adventures and i think many of the newer games owe nothing to the Lucasarts and Sierra games of the past. The Dream Machine and The Whispered World, for example, should be mentioned among the best.

Al Lowe's Leisure Suit Larry - 1,2 & 3. Silly and fun and I guess they'd never make a Benny Hill style humor game like that in this day and age.

LOOM (Amiga) is the only P&C that I've completed. Fantastic game.

Enjoyed Monkey Island (Amiga), but Day of the Tentacle (DOS) has to be my favourite in the genre.

How about a game screenshot quiz? Amiga, DOS, Megadrive and Commodore 64.
