Not much to say about this... Extremely sad of what could have been. An awesome opportunity wasted and now we have a situation where everyone looses.

I still have a small hope that Al and/or Josh will make more games. Larry or not is unimportant.

My story is not that exciting. My name is Roger and XY is the male chromosome pair (loosely based on the TV show "Kyle XY")

Knights of the old Republic comes to my mind

The early ones like "Mystery House" and such is not that good but if you compare them to the other games of that time they are good so I guess you have to do that.

I would have to say "Codename: Iceman" among the ones I have played. The story is great and the graphics are really nice but the gameplay... wow... horrible

"Leisure suit Larry 2" or "King's Quest IV" for nostalgic reasons.

But if I'm going to be sober and choose the best game without nostalgic reasons, I think "Leisure suit Larry 6" or "King's Quest VII"

No more crappy star wars games oh my how will we survive

The shutting down of Lucasarts will not mean any difference for us that want to see adventure games. At least not in a negative way

I think it was the best thing that could happen. Disney would not have done adventure games anyway... now there's at least a chance that another developer could use any of the AG licenses to make a game.

Great post BT, almost shed a tear :)

I've always been there and played adventure games since the beginning/middle of the 90s.

I was there when the abominable 3D Adventure games came and replaced the 2D ones. When legendary series like "Monkey Island" and "King's Quest" made us utterly dissapointed when transcended into 3D.

I was there when Lucasarts promised us "Sam n Max 2" and I was there when the same company cancelled it and at the same time declared they wouldn't do anymore adventure games.

I was also there when Sierra as we knew it ceased to exist.

Having adventure games as one of your biggest interest, everything that happened there was pretty hard. I also agree that the "revival" for me was when I found Tierra a few years later. I didn't know, however, that the adventure game community was still so big, but that  was what this "Tim Schafer revival" really showed us.

And here we are.

Even though many have doubted, the future for adventure games looks very bright. We have retired adventure game designers coming back, as well as newer ones (Like you and Himalaya Studios). And here we are. We who never lost faith. And I'm glad to be here.

Wow, I'm actually very surprised that there are people who like dead ends. I don't think there anything in an adventure game I hate more than that.

Getting killed is another thing, I have mixed feelings about that. Used to hate it but I'm leaning more towards being for it nowadays. And that is because of one single quote from Lori Cole, that things you do shall have consequences (just like in real life), to add excitement. There are of course good and not so good ways to kill off your character.

Punishing the player for wanting to explore and not to everything exactly as described in the walkthrough is a typical not so good way. If you screw up is one thing. Being able to get killed of practically everything in the whole game (like some Sierra games) is another (not so good) one
