Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge, PC

Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge is the 1991 sequel to the classic The Secret of Monkey Island and is arguably even better than its fondly-remembered predecessor.

I think I’ve played through the entire game on four of five separate occasions. It’s always an enjoyable and tense blast.
