BeefJack: Looking back at LucasArts
Remember this morning when I said the reason for me not talking about LucasArts would become clear. Well here it is.
Looking back at LucasArts
When I first mentioned to Jamie that I wanted to do this he he thought about both of us pitching in on a look back and asked what my favourite LucasArts games, I told him that was impossible. That's like asking someone to pick their favourite child (yes, he used that in the strap too).
After I turned in my draft, he decided I'd said it all, and he couldn't really offer anything. For my side, I held back a bit. I could have kept going.
There's a lot of games I feel bad for not mentioning. Grim Fandango. X-Wing Alliance. Day of the Tentacle. Raven's Jedi Outcast and Academy. Mysteries of the Goddamn Sith. All great. But for me there are five games that I fondly remember from LucasArts.
Monkey Island's 1 and 2
and Full Throttle
And I couldn't resist a special shoutout to Republic Commando.
