My laptop was overheating and shutting down frequently a few months ago. I took a vacuum with the hose attachment and sucked dust and crap out of the fan vent holes and I haven't had the problem since then. Might be something to try.
Mega Man 2 is my favorite console game of all time. A lot of that is nostalgia, but I pop it in every month or so and play through it and it is still great. Also, I was always a fan of the old Sierra Online adventure games, but Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist is easily my favorite. I'm a big fan of Space Quest IV and Gabriel Knight as well.
I got this laptop with 64-bit Windows 7 a while back and it wouldn't run Gemini Rue for whatever reason. I'd like to pick this up, but I'm afraid that I would have the same problem. It looks great though. I prefer my adventure games in 320 x 240 resolution.
That was a great list. I haven't played a lot of those games, and I've never even heard of Team Buddies, but it's nice to see a list like this that isn't just Shadow of the Colossus, Resident Evil 4 and other obvious titles like that. Super Mario Sunshine is a nice inclusion as that game is severely underrated. Also, Mega Man 2 is my favorite game of all time.
Saint's Row the Third, Deadly Premonition (both intentional and not), Persona 4 and 3 have pretty hilarious moments though they aren't comedic games, Portal 1 and 2, Rock of Ages, and Magicka. I actually thought Magicka was hilarious and deserved more credit than it got
Deadly Premonition is great and the shooting is so broken, it's debatable as to whether or not it could be considered one. Also, Magicka and all of its DLC is only $6.24 on Steam for the next nine and a half hours! It's a steal!
