Grabbed them myself from Monkey Island 3

to be honest It was a shame they made more than 2 monkey island games
The second one ended well enough
The others (there was a 4 and maybe a 5, not too sure), weren't as good by any means.

Being an utter fan of any LucasArts adventure ever released (including Loom), I have to disagree with you :)

Grim Fandango was the best, followed by DotT (the difference is no more than a tentacle's nose length :P).

I really liked Loom , finished it it in one afternoon though with a few friends though, still it was fun :)

DotT was outstanding,

And I never did get around to playing the grim fandango games

The Indiana jones games were good too, but the combat is very hard in them

The 3d Indiana Jones is without doubt the worst LucasArts adventure. Still I enjoyed playing it somewhat.

And as far as I know, there's only 1 Grim Fandango :)

Are you sure?
I'm almost positive there was a sequel or something

Maybe I'm just going crazy though

Still I like those old adventure games,

nope, they don't make them like that anymore
