Well, "ever" is an awefully long time. Personally, I don't think
anything will ever top the original Leisure Suit Larry.

Speaking of which, isn't Vivendi bringing Larry back?

Yep, Sierra is doing a new LSL but the original creator, Al Lowe, doesn't
have anything to do with it (despite his offers of collaboration). Without
Al in the mix, I'm not expecting much.

And people try to raise the devil too! I guess people will do any sort of
evil act for a quick buck

True. So True. His sense of humor made the original game for sure. To
this day I remember just how hard I laughed when the stray dog wizzes
on you if you stand on the street corner too long without doing
anything. The whole thing was like one long running joke. It's the
"Airplane" of video games IMO.

The remake looks like it's more of a modern Frat Boy (Larry's Nephew)
theme, not the aging Disco hipster. I dunno. If it's really funny, and
not just lame I would be very surprised... but pleasently so for sure.

Yep, Al himself is a classic and I really look forward to seeing him get
back in the business at some level. I think he's having too much fun in
retirement, though.

The original Monkey Island has it for me, although I have never played
any of the LSL games.
