    A game I refure to as an all time favorite

    Grim Fandango is an adventure game inspired by Mexican folklore and told in a film noir-like style.
    You play Manny Calavera, a travel agent in the land of the dead cursed to selling travel packages to deadbeat recently departed clients who can't qualify for anything better then a walking stick. After finding, and losing, your prime client, Meche Colomar, the adventure begins in an effort to find her.

    What really sets this game apart from anything else is the fantastic art style, the great dialog, great characters and everything you would want in good story telling. This is a game i can recommend to anyone, gamer or not, and has impressed me enough to call it an all time favorite.

There are three things that designers must always tackle with: storylines, graphics, and sounds. Without these core mechanics, no games will ever be a true game and it's replay value will be at a minimal- and Grim Fandango is no exception.  Be a good boy...or else In Grim Fandango, you play as Manny Calavera who is literally "Grim Reaper" working for the Department of Death in the L...
