Point-and-click games are simply one of the most amazing (yet ignored) games a person could want.
I played a game of Curse of Money Island. Oh mess that game was simply wondrous! It was witty, challenging (I had to look at a walkthrough a number of times), and simply amazing!
I got Zack and Wiki for my birthday.
It's amazing itself (though it could use some humorous dialogue like Monkey Island had! Well, speaking dialogue anyways.). Though I'm proud to say I haven't looked up a single guide on it in the 6 and a half hours I've played it (I've probably got a number of hours to go!)
I'll certainly be looking into Sam and Max.
