ya there's like an entire genre of these things made back in the day
>>
They're point and click adventure games, or simply adventure games

Lucas arts made a ton of them (same company that made Grim Fandango). Search for a scummvm torrent that ought to include a lot of the good ones

Modern adventure games are kinda shit, I haven't played any good ones
>>
>>322241654
how many have you played, friendo
>>
Monkey Island 3.
Monkey Island 1 and 2 are also fantastic but feel a little less like GF.
>>
>>322241809
I'd personally recommend Day of the Tentacle, Curse of Monkey Island, and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis

Try those out and see if you're still interested
>>

Deponia was a good modern adventure game. It got obtuse sometimes, but so did most Lucasarts ones.
>>
>>322241973
>Day of the Tentacle
>Fate of Atlantis

>for a man who enjoyed Grim Fandango

you're shit at recommending adventure games you know that
>>

Broken Age :^)

Not him, but why is that? What sets apart Grim Fandango aside from strange console-ish controls and inventory management?

I heard a lot of good things about the Myst games. Which ones to play though?
>>
>>322242042
FoA is a bit off, less humor-based but it's still good

DotT and GF are usually listed side by side in the best adventure games ever made. I really don't get what your problem is
>>
>>322242376
whichever

Myst is always the same gimmick
>>
>>322242367
Hit the Road should be a higher priority. But the Telltale episodes are one of the better things Telltale has done.
>>
>>322241215
This game isn't possible without a guide unless you're autistic. Game sucks.
>>
>>322241215

If you mean any point-and-click adventures, there are tons.

This is a more recent one and one of my personal favorites. It's not too convoluted like some of the older point-and-clicks, but some of the puzzles really make you think. The visuals and soundtrack are what really make this game. Plus it's $2.50 right now.

My only complaint is that it is rather short.

Telltale games are click and point adventure aimed at millennials

Nah this part is fucking ridiculous. I still don't understand it, even after reading a guide.
>>
>>322242302
>>322242419
I find FoA crude and barebones from today's point of view - sure, back then it was a fucking legend, especially compared to Sierra shit

DotT is a fine example of a nostalgia bait - I sincerely don't understand what people see in it, never did and still don't

Grim Fandango should be put on the same shelf as other plot-driven adventures of low difficulty, such as Broken Sword or Gabriel Knight
>>
>>322243132
I think that took me a few hours back in the day, and I admit it was frustrating. The rest of the game really wasn't like that though, that was just a bad part
>>
>>322243151
If Grim is anything, it's nostalgia bait. I replayed it just a few months ago and I felt a lot of its shine had worn off. It was really only good for its humor and righting and somewhat nonsensical solutions, again playing into the humor angle. DotT does exactly the same thing, it's just more dated in visual appearance
>>
>>322243771
>DotT
>more dated than Grim

cmon anon be serious
early 3D was atrocious and dated worse than pixel graphic adventures
>>
>>322243771
It does a wonderful job with world-building and atmosphere. I loath a few of the puzzles, but calling it "nostalgia bait" is a weak criticism. I played it for the first time some years back well after its original release and I still thoroughly enjoyed it.
>>
>>322243948
Grim is mostly prerenderd backgrounds that would still hold up nicely if they had saved the original assets

DotT is 224p cartoon pixel art. To be completely honest, I like it better, but I'm not going to delude myself into thinking it's aged better than GF
