Following the adventures of lovable idiot Guybrush Threepwood, you'll fail your way to becoming the most notorious Pirate Captain in The Caribbean in LucasArts' quirky point-and-click adventure series, The Secret of Monkey Island. Known for its humor, The Secret of Monkey Island spawned four sequels spanning 20 years, including Tales of Monkey Island developed by Telltale Games.
Gameplay is primarily relegated to interacting with the environment, using one of nine commands, such as "talk to" or "pick up" to solve puzzles and progress through the game. As Guybrush, you must impress three pirate captains in order to become a pirate and win the heart of the Governor, Elaine Marley. This brings you into conflict with the seemingly undefeatable villain LeChuck, who comes back to haunt you in each subsequent game, first as a ghost, then a zombie, and then a demon.
There's some really great twists and turns throughout the series, and the first entry should definitely be on every gamer's list of games to play.
