more similar games

Can anyone recommend some similar games? - other than the ones already listed in the left hand side of the page.

I really liked this game and I'm hoping to find other adventure games that are as funny (other than monkey island series & grim fandango).

Many thanks

PS: I also really liked the Broken Sword series and Gabriel Knight Sins of the Fathers.

Left side of the page?
Is this a Gamespot-only feature?

Have you tried the "Indiana Jones" games?
"King's Quest I-VII"? (Fans have remade the first two games with updated graphics and controls and for free!)
"Sam & Max" (this is a long line of games)

"Tex Murphy" adventures? (Specifically "Martian Memorandum" -- though it takes itself rather seriously)

How about "Psychonauts" on the XBOX? Different kind of game, but made by the same crew as the Monkey Island games.

Thx for the reply.

I'll be sure to check out King's Quest and the Tex Murphy ones.

I only got the 1st episode of Sam&Max but I didn't like it.

Cheers

Oh and a few more popped into my mind:

Maniac Mansion (fairly old, probably freeware by now; came out on a LOT of consoles)

Day of the Tentacle (sequel to MM)

Runaways (two games in the series; heralded as great but short)

Leisure Suit Larry (mixed bag, adult situations, from the same company as King's Quest for some reason)

I dunno of the Discworld games hit the PC, but they were point-n-click games on the Playstation. (And Wily Beemish was a similar game on the Sega CD.)

Ah crap, and how can I forget Grim Fandango. Read the reviews on GameFAQs; highly recommended.

I gotta recommend the Discworld games, though they may be a little hard to find/install these days.

A Vampyre Story. Best point and click in years. Enough said.

Simon the Sorcerer games are entertaining. The world map can be somewhat convoluted though, so I tend to draw them out on paper.

Hm, I'd have thought Space Quest would have been top of the page, Roger and Guybrush have so much in common. At least no one has lied to you and said 'Jack Keane' that game turned out to be a pile.. then again any game claiming to be 'Monkey Island done right, at last' is destined to suck bad.
