They made some seriously great games, but yea its been a while.  I think I have bought more lucasarts games than anything else over the years.  1313 was looking pretty BA I thought.  I'm sort of pissed about that.  Loved Dark Forces, loved all the x-wing and tie fighter games.  My son loved Lego Star Wars.  I think Outlaws might have been one of my favorite non-starwars.  Loved that game.  I liked Secret weapons of the luftwaffe, Galaxies, loved Empire at War, and galactic battlegrounds.  I actually feel a little sad, mostly because I can't play any of those games on windows anymore as they are way too old.  But in the day Lucasarts was great.

Star Wars Kinect was out sourced to Terminal Reality, it really doesn't bode well for Di$ney's idea of outsourcing all SW games. I guess well never see the likes of Monkey Island, Zak McKracken, Sam and Max or Day of the Tentacle (nearly spelled that wrong) again.

Always prgrams like DOSBOX to get old games running again, almostunbiased, For most old games is getting your hands on a working 3 1/2 inch floppy drive (if using your original old games).  There re other ways which we will not mention at this point.

 

Some old LA game were remastered for IOS devices, I picked up Monkey Island a while back. But I doubt we'll see much in that way for a long while.

 

Oh and there are programs such as SCUMM VM which provide a front end for you game disks to run on newer systems. Not just LA games but several other studios.

If I had that then I'd be playing Serf City.

Can I make a confession?  I played Rebellion until the disc had a hole burned in it.
