and it's pretty much the only game aside from Ocarina of Time to get a Game of the Year award in '98.


GOTY is meaningless, like Best Film in Academy Awards.

espouse the virtues, don't enumerate accolades like a parrot.

Hmm, I see. Well, I think I have more than enough suggestions to get started. System shock 2 is $2.50 on GOG and I'll try the first fallout. After that maybe I'll hunt down a copy of grim fandango and check out more of these games.

Then again, it's known as possibly the greatest point-n-click adventure game ever made, and it's pretty much the only game aside from Ocarina of Time to get a Game of the Year award in '98.

A lot of games got GOTY awards from a major publication in '98. Baldur's Gate, Starcraft, Half-Life, and Fallout 2 are all little games you've probably heard of that won several awards, for instance, and that's not including console games. Or PC games that lost their appeal over time (like Unreal).

To the TC's question, I recommend using this picture as a reference:

I had never heard of Grim Fandango and now I'm interested, but is it worth playing or would I get most out of it by just watching a playthrough on youtube?
