Play station – not just a mere gaming console. It was something more than that to every kid or even an adult who had ever played it. Let us accept the fact that, it consumed hours of time in our daily lives. The happiness and experience that we get have no boundaries and something that cannot be explained in words. Every person has a different perspective on things. The same applies to games played in PlayStation. Everyone has own favorites. Here are some of the games that stood out from the rest and will always be something that we cherish.

Best All-Time Favorite Point and Click Adventure Games for PC Point-and-click adventures were the original computer games. Long before you had first-person shooters dominating an unknown marketplace, slow-moving and story-filled games where you chose your adventure by pointing and clicking around the screen were all the rage. The best ones of all time are based on popularity and ratings, but anyone that had something like a Gateway 2000 or remembers Windows 3.1 is sure to have their own favorites.
You can’t have any point-and-click list without mentioning the Monkey Island franchise. People loved Monkey Island and were happy to see it continue for years. Clicking through the adventure to discover new things was everybody’s favorite thing. Starting with The Secret of Monkey Island, then Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge, and all the way to The Curse of Monkey Island. The games kept getting made and people kept getting more and more excited about it.
Next up, and usually at the top of any list, is Day of the Tentacle. This was one of the first adventures into PC gaming by the multi-billion dollar company LucasArts, created by founder George Lucas of Star Wars fame. This game provided hilarious and outrageous cartoon work with an even sillier plot line. Thought to be the most popular point-and-click adventure game out there, it’s still available for download on sites like Steam, even though it came out over 25 years ago.
If you are one of the people who hear Indiana Jones and only think of the three great films, then you missed a golden opportunity in 1992. Also in the beginning of LucasArts’ computer game soiree, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis offered fans of the huge franchise an opportunity to take place in Indi’s new adventure. This game had it all, including multiple playing formats. You could go through the adventure intimidating and beating up on people for information, use your intelligence (he is a professor, after all), or incorporate the help of a young woman who was once a psychic, but is now a treasure hunter.
You may remember Christopher Lloyd as the classic character Doc Brown from the Back to the Future franchise, but if you were a point-and-click adventure fan in the 90’s, then you may be more familiar with his voice in the classic game Toonstruck. Christopher Lloyd is joined by other actors, such as Tim Curry, to voice over ridiculous adventures and puzzles as you try to match words together to advance through the game. Unfortunately, the translation wasn’t that great in the development of the game for America, and before you knew it, you were involved with such atrocities as evil clowns and cows that were into much more dirtier things than eating grass.
While the list of point-and-click adventures can literally continue for pages, it can be fun to go out and re-play your favorite from a time forgotten about with modern games. Go find a computer with a CD-Rom drive or download your favorite game today!

Hey everyone, There are however a few more things we need to do before they release the game. Here are a few more specific updates: IndiePub Festival They were recently an Honorable Mention in indiepub’s 2012 Independent Propeller Awards Festival! It’s always great to be acknowledged by a festival and most importantly to us… it means people like their game! Business Things In order to release the game, they had to form a company. The process of doing so turned out to be a bit trickier than we expected (who would have thought?) but we’re finally there! We’re working on contacting many online distributers. We already have a major one lined up for release! Demo They created a playable demo!
- The demo contains a small section of Chapter 1.
- Many of the branching paths and events in this Chapter have been sealed away for now but it should provide a solid hint at what’s to come!
- The demo will be available when the game is released.
- A Mac version of the game seems Probable.
- A Linux version of the game seems Possible.
