Ok, you all had loads of fun, but this ends here.

This is the real™ official ordered list:

 

1) MI2

2) MI1

3) CMI

4) EMI

5) TMI

 

That's just how it is. Sorry to be 100% objectively right.

I'm glad we all agree CMI shouldn't even be considered a Monkey Island game!

Let's see:

  1. MI1
  2. MI4(GP)
  3. MI6(F)
  4. MI5(RN)
  5. MI3
  6. MI2

We are talking about Mission Impossible movies right?

 

I would pay good money to see remakes of the Mission Impossible movies starring @Dmnkly as Guybrush in the Ethan Hunt role.

You might have a point there with Maniac Mansion, but that game is still pretty overtly a horror/sci-fi B-movie parody, while its sequel is overtly a Saturday morning cartoon. In addition, we've seen interpretations of Maniac Mansion rendered in ink, oil and clay that predate Day of the Tentacle that managed to be much more evocative of the game's world, in my opinion. I need to shut up about that now, because if I work through my ideas here I'll end up using it as an excuse not to make the article.

 

The article, as threatened.

 

Also, special thanks to Remi for inspiring me to replay CMI this weekend. Man, what a game.

Guys, guys, it's:

 

1. Revenge

2. Secret

3. Tales

4. That bit where you meet Herman Toothrot in The Cave

5. Curse

6. Raz saying 'it opens up into a system of catacombs' when looking at a tree stump in Psychonauts

7. Sid Meier's Pirates

8. Escape. 

 

I replayed the series not too long ago, and Escape has actually gone up a bit for me (still not enough to beat any of the others though). There are definitely weak parts (Elaine, the odd Herman stuff, a lot of the comedy/story stuff falling flat), but there are some good puzzles, some genuinely funny bits, and it does feel like a giant adventure in a large world I enjoy being a part of. Of course, due to the technology involved and some iffy art style choices, it's easily the ugliest Monkey Island game. 

 

And while I still love Curse and think it's super charming, I did feel the pacing and a lot of the comedy wasn't as good as I remember. It honestly bored me a bit at times - something the first two games never do, even though I know every single pixel of those games by heart. There's a lot of memorable fun stuff, but it's not the timeless classic some of the other Lucas games are for me. I do have a lot of fond memories playing through that game with my brothers/classmates though, so I'll never actually dislike it.

(a bunch of other nonsense)

 

 

I'm actually going to amend my list, and put the moment in The Cave down as #4, too. Because The Cave is awesome.

I love The Cave. Very under appreciated if you ask me. You're still a monster, though ;)

If calling CMI meh is being a monster, then Frankenstein was in the right when he threw that little girl in the water. Or something like that.

I think you mean Frankenstein's monster. Who wasn't a monster, I agree.

 

Wait

I cannot believe I made the age-old Frankenstein vs. Frankenstein's monster mistake...

 

Either way, somebody threw the girl in the water, and it was OK because CMI is meh.

I'd like to remind the jury of the defendant's previous words:

CMI is a nineties sitcom gone wrong.

I'm a big fan of The Cave too. If there was an option to hold two or more items at a time to reduce backtracking, it would be near perfect.
