I do watch Dexter's Laboratory with my son and I love it! Dee Dee is my favorite character! I loved the one where she wanted to be a pretty princess pony (or whatever they called it to avoid litigation)! I'm really looking for to playing DOTT now!
Happy gaming,
Beth

I would have to agree with Arthur in the Journeyman games was great. I hope they come out with more, III was my favorite. Loved that game.

Not just one, but a combination of three...Viconia, Edwin and Korgan in Baldur's Gate 2. Makes for some hilarious conversations. You who have played it knows what I'm talking about laugh

Gee Laverne sounds great. Does Day of the Tentacle run on W98? It sounds like a game I would like to play but I'm not too great at tweaking games to get them to run.

The combination of Bud, Etno, Candy, Stereo, And Gorgious from Stupid Invaders are my favorite funny characters. The look, voices, everything was funny about them to me.

I thought Tony Tough was pretty funny. His voice and the way he walked.

Fildil, I had trouble running Day of the Tentacle on my Win 98 computer (400 MHz). I think the game didn't like my SBLive sound card. I've heard a few people say they ran it in Win 98, but that seems to be the exception - at least with PCI sound cards.

I'm unsure if there is an updated version or not. I heard a rumor there was one that was released in the UK. But that was just a rumor.

If you have a computer with Win 2000 or XP, you might try running it with ScummVM. It has 95% compatibility under ScummVM.

Eric the Unready hands down - That guy got himself in the most hilarious situations in a game and the way he solved them were just as hilarious. Second was the talking fish in the beginning of zork Grand Inquisitor, the sarcasm was so thick you could cut it with a knife.

By the way Jenny ScummVM works with Windows 98SE also, ran Beneath A Steel Sky and Full Throttle with it.

Eric the Unready was definitely the funniest single game I have played yet, but its an ensemble thing IMO. All the situations & beings you met were jokes in one way or another. Still some stood out for us, like Ed McDwarf & Bruce the waiter laugh Return to Zork is the same way. Lots of funny characters like Boos Miller, the Mayor, the Lighthouse Keeper etc but its hard for me to pick a standout.

ZGI was hilarious! I liked our faithful talking lantern guide, Dalboz & the 2-headed guard of Hades best.

I agree with the other nominations for the games I know, and especially Murray the talking skull. If they do a Monkey Island5 they gotta bring back Murray!

I am playing the first Discworld now. If you ignore the departures from the series, its very funny indeed. I expected Rincewind to be funny but the trolls were a delightful surprise.

Hey, did any of you play the Lost Vikings or Lost Vikings2? We thought they were a very amusing bunch. Its puzzle/action but not too demanding physically.

I havent played Day of the Tentacle yet. I will have to do that soon after reading all this. (Its on my "to play" stack somewhere)

IMHO
Funniest character: Murray the talking skull
Honorable mention: Dalboz the lantern, Simon the Sourcerer, Arthur from Journeyman series, Ed McDwarf et al from Eric, Elvis minister from Civ II, Oscar of Syberia, Roger Wilco, Carla & Lula of Runaway (I liked Carla even better than Lula), & a gaggle from Return to Zork & Discworld

Funniest game: Eric the Unready
Honorable Mention: Freddy Pharkas, Return to Zork

Funniest series: Monkey Island
Honorable Mention: Lost Vikings, Simon the Sorcerer

and I am probably forgetting lots of others.

Makes me grin just to think about them all.

I think back with a chuckle about Malcolm from Kyrandia III, Malcolm's Revenge. He was such an old coot! lol (great dresser too!)

Jenny, (regarding Day of the Tentacle) there was a reissue in 1999 I believe that updated the game to run on more recent OS's. It also included Sam and Max Hit the Road. It is extremely hard to find. The CD Rom Shop in the UK had it recently but was never able to restock it. I had just missed out.

Jenny and johnboy298, there's an auction on ebay for this game, but the seller says that you must download a Scumm program to run it. I don't know how you put in the url for it, but if you want to look, just search for Day of the Tentacle PC game.

Dalboz in Zork Grand Inquisitor had such hilarious comments, but then everybody in that game was funny. I also liked the Barbot in Starship Titanic. He reminded me of another tippling, blarney-filled Irishman I know. smile
