Almost every gamer out there either misses the LucasArts heyday or knows someone who does. The Monkey Island series, Day of the Tentacle, heck, even Loom... these are all classic games for their time, all of which used a point ‘n click interface that only truly made sense on a PC. Of course, perhaps the greatest of these adventures was Sam & Max Hit the Road, a crazy little adventure featuring Steve Purcell’s unforgettable characters that was just difficult enough and hilarious enough to be memorable. To date, the exchange of “Do you mind if I drive?” “Only if you don’t mind me clawing at the dashboard and shrieking like a cheerleader” remains one of the funniest moments in gaming history. Those longing for the halcyon days of LucasArts will find everything they’re looking for in Sam & Max: Season One, a six-part serial game that retains every bit of both the humor and the skewed sense of puzzle-solving logic that makes the series great. Plus, if you buy the whole shebang, you can get it on DVD with a case and everything, not to mention a bunch of fun little extras, including a gag reel. And really, every game based on animated characters should include a gag reel, right?  Right.  [Find Sam & Max at Telltale Games.com.]
