Kind of disappointed not to see Psychonauts on here, but it’s a pretty good list.

Ouch, when it comes to the Grim Fandango poll, 60% said it should not be on the list.

Yes, Grim had bad controls. But apart from that, it’s to this day a friggin excellent adventure game. I’d put it next to Monkey Island for sure.

Speaking of Grim Fandango, I’ve just now read an article on Mother Jones titled “Why It Sucks to Be a Woman in the Video Game Industry” which spends two paragraphs referencing Grim Fandango and LucasArts adventure games generally (bright spots in a vast expanse of suck).
