Grim Fandango Remastered

Grim Fandango is quite possibly my favorite LucasArts games, and on top of that, one of my favorite games of all time. I was so happy when it was announced that they were going to do a “remastered” version, and I’m also incredibly happy that Day of the Tentacle will be next (and come on, let’s just keep going and do Full Throttle after). Playing it again has been an absolute joy, and the game looks terrific. I played a bit on PS4, but I’ve mostly been playing on Vita, which is just perfect for this – and the graphics just look that much better on the smaller screen. What has surprised me is how I don’t really feel like I’m playing an old game, but that’s maybe because I just really love adventure games like this, and I still play them now – Broken Age was one of my favorite games of last year, after all. But yes, please play this if you’ve never done so, and here’s hoping Double Fine manages to get the rights to do remastered editions of even more classic LucasArts games.
