If You Want More Classic LucasArts Games, Buy The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition

Like many of you, I’m super excited about LucasArts’ upcoming The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition. The original is a classic, and having the chance to see such an iconic game in all its HD (hand-drawn) glory on my Xbox 360 quite simply rocks.

And yet, for as thrilled as I am that this title is on the way, I can’t help but thinking about the other classic LucasArts games (Curse of Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle) that I’m currently unable to enjoy on a daily basis. Fortunately, there’s a very simple way for fans to ensure that these titles resurface: buy Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition!

At least, that’s the advice passed along by LucasArts Community Manager Brooks Brown. Brown told Australia’s WAToday.com, "If [Monkey Island: SE] sells, there's no one at this company who doesn't want to do these games...It's a matter of showing that there's interest and this market is alive.”

Ok. So Brown makes it sound a bit like LucasArts is using Monkey Island: SE to blackmail gamers (“Buy this game or you’ll never see your precious point-and-click adventures again!), but if ever there was a blackmail scheme that I supported 100 percent, this would have to be it.

How many of you are planning on buying the Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition and/or the new addition to the series Tales of Monkey Island? Which classic LucasArts game would you most like to see updated next?
