20 Awesome Point and Click Desktop Games
(Point-and-Click) Adventure Time!

Point-and-click adventure games have a long and storied history in the canon of computer gaming, featuring classics such as LucasArts' Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island, to Sierra On-Line's various Quest games. It's not a dead genre though, as the Internet is wild with indie publishers releasing short and sweet adventures, loving riffs on genre classics, as well as downright weird, experimental titles that take genre conventions and turn them on their heads. If you're looking for a quirky, whimsical, or downright mysterious game that doesn't rely on your twitch reflexes, why not have a go at these point-and-click games for the weekend?

    "Laura Bow 2: The Dagger of Amon Ra" was another one of my favorites. Also, how can you leave off "Day of the Tentacle"?
