Alrighty, folks! I hereby kick off this month of classic point-and-click adventuring with the first two episodes of my playthrough Sam & Max Hit the Road. (And if you’re all like WTF??!, then please read this post. Though you should have read it before clicking on this post but whatevs, yo. I’m not your damn mother.)
The thing about point-and-click games is that, because they aren’t all flashy and shooty, there’s got to be something right off the bat that grabs your attention. The prologue and opening scenes of Hit the Road demonstrate this beautifully. They set up not only the story of our unlikely PIs but also allow plenty trademark humor to shine bright as day. So I’ll be brutally (and stupidly) honest, if you aren’t enthralled by the time I get out onto the world map first episode, then this game — playing or watching — probably isn’t for you. And that’s fine; I’m not here to change anyone’s mind about game. But if you stick with me through the series, I promise that we’ll have one hell of grand time in the gloriously silly world of Sam & Max.
