As a video game nerd over 30, I'm kind of ashamed that I've never played this. It would be like being a drama geek and never having read hamlet.

Same, actually. I've heard tons about it but I've never played it. You'll have to let us know how it holds up!

Holds up really well. Bought this in High School as part of a Lucas Arts CD pack. This version is great because it has th voice tracks, unlike the floppy version.

The art style and writing are still, very good. I'd makes some in-jokes but they'd all be spoilers, enjoy!

That guy on the cover looks familiar...

Nice find by the way! It's a great game.

PURPLE TENTACLE may be in a list of all time most memorable villans.

I loved that game.

Hahahaha, that's awesome! I knew I recognized WhiteboySlim's icon! I played the game long ago on my first Windows PC. That said, I don't remember it too well. I remember being introduced to Maniac Mansion on the NES and I loved it (even played it recently in an emulator). Although, I never played the PC version, which was supposedly a bit better and perhaps a bit more crude.
