Playing a great game lately, Escape From Monkey Island, which is the fourth and (so far) last installment in LucasArts' Monkey Island series. Classic adventure games, they have fun gameplay, good voice-acting and quite a bit of humour. Only one of the four I haven't finished yet. I'd recommend any and all to just about anyone.
This game series, and the enjoyability of the early games even though technology has passed them by goes to show that solid game design can trump the latest bells and whistles of graphics and sound.
