(I hope this is the right place to post this? I wasn't sure if General Discussion was mainly for GB stuff. Sorry, I'm new.)
I like adventure games. I liked Monkey Islands 1-3, The Longest Journey, Broken Sword and I consider Grim Fandango one of my favourite games of all time.
But I don't get what people like about Sam & Max. I played through Hit The Road (it's a favourite of Jeff Gerstmann's, isn't it?) a few years back, and I don't remember anything funny or interesting about it, just a "that was it?" moment at the end. The puzzles were just crazy random too.
I just finished playing through season 1 of the Telltale series and it's the same thing. Max is kinda funny and there's occasionally a decent line in there, but overall, it's not very charming nor hilarious, nor clever. And the puzzles are still nonsensical. (Adventure game or no, it could be more intuitive)
I enjoyed Telltale's BTTF for its plot, I enjoyed Strong Bad's Cool Game For Attractive People for its Strong-Baddiness. But I just don't get it with Sam & Max.
And I plan on playing seasons 2 and 3 of the series, because I bought them...I'm just wondering if anyone can help me appreciate them?
