I don't know just how many of you have played this game - The Day Of The Tentacle - but I have found THE FUNNIEST character I have ever encountered in a game - Laverne! I cannot stop laughing and every time I think of her I start all over again - in the game when she did that 'conversion' thing with the flag and put it on I was rolling on the floor, tears rolling down my face and hubby was ready to call 911 for the 'men in the white coats' to come and take me away! Still laughing over her.
Who was/is the funniest character you feel you have encountered in a game and what game was it?
Love, Betty Lou smile laugh lol laugh lol

The ones that come to mind are:

Guybrush Threepwood from Monkey Island - He cracks me up!

Rincewind from Discworld - Love that British humour!

Leisure Suit Larry - I just love all of the past LSL games! Funny!

Zork Grand Inquisitor made me laugh and reminded me of some of the politicians I have met.

Can't choose one - but some of my favorites are:

Max - what a little buddy
Murray the evil skull
The two bad guys outside the hotel in BS2
woodworms and the vacuum salesman in Simon 3D
All the HARM baddies through out NOLF
Lewton in Discworld Noir

I think I would go with Murray the evil skull in Curse of Monkey Island. He was so morose and scrappy even though he was a head on a pole (or a shelf, or floating in the ocean...) lol

Oscar from Syberia really made me smile and chuckle. He reminded me of C3-POs complaining and fast comebacks. He doesn't mean to be funny, which makes it even better. laugh

Lewton in Discworld Noir -- sarcastically funny.
Guybrush Threepwood in the Monkey Island games -- endearingly funny.
Zork Grand Inquisitor -- the funniest wackiest world.

Laverne is hands down the funniest character I've ever seen in a computer game period. Her voice, her walk, the wise/naive cracks she makes at every turn. It's the whole package with Laverne. She's sweet too, not sarcastic or annoying. Jeez, I miss her already.

I'm going to discover Laverne for the first time soon! I ordered a Day of the Tentacle/Sam and Max combo game (a re-release that I haven't found in the States that works with Win 95, at least according to the description) from Gameplay and it's on its way. I was moaning in another thread about the fact that my other game in that order is out of stock, but now I feel that I should be happy that Day of the Tentacle is on its way! Thank you for cheering me up with this thread!!! smile
Happy gaming,
Beth
