The mind bending of CADAVER
The humour of SECRET OF MONKEY ISLAND
The simplicity of RAINBOW ISLANDS
Mix all these ingredients together and IMO you get the perfect game.
Well you know me, I think Kick Off 2 is #1 when it comes to pure playability, longevity and simplicity.. that's why I think of it as the perfect game. I totally agree about the originality of LEMMINGS, I'd change the rest to:
The atmosphere of UNINVITED
The mind bending of MANHUNTER NEW YORK & SAN FRANCISCO
The humour of LEISURE SUIT LARRY 3 (Ok maybe I don't go out much)
The graphics of SIMON THE SORCERER II
The sound of AGONY
Now that I think of it, if we mixed all the above we'd probably have a crappy and confusing game.. just like most of today's PC games that try to squeeze all the genres in one.
