I grew up religiously playing Monkey Island I-III. I am currently replaying Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge. Just hangin’ out on Scabb Island, searching for Big Whoop. You know. Gotta win back Elaine too. Of course.
Anyway, the best thing about Monkey Island (besides the wonderful characters, brilliant gameplay, witty dialogue and everything else about the games) is the MUSIC! I can’t hear that theme from Monkey Island without getting gee’d up.
Listen to the theme! I feel like anyone else who grew up with Monkey Island will also agree it is the best game of all time.
