"BS1 was the game that was responsible for me becoming a complete BAAGer!
chrissie, I had never played much of anything but the original Kwazi's Quest Mahjong (which was pretty good, btw, except for those dumb poems), when I ran across a demo for Grim Fandango on CNet. Fifty megabytes and it took me an entire day to download it on dialup. Those were NOT the good old days.
Fantastic story, great characters, wonderful voice acting, beautiful graphics, music that's perfectly suited to the game...any more superlatives I can stick in there? I had to have the game and got one of the last copies Lucas Arts sold, I think. Fifteen bucks in a jewel case, then the game disappeared from their site.
See, Lucas Arts? See what happens when you ignore Grim? You get swallowed by Disney! Ha!
