Ranking the Best and Worst Sierra and LucasArts Adventure Games | Cannot be Tamed

Cannot be Tamed
Today I’m ranking games from another of my favourite genres – point and click adventure games. I’m focusing only on those made by either LucasArts (LucasFilm) or Sierra. I rank 32 of them and it turns into a bit of an overview of adventure game history as well as my own gaming history.

  1. What a waste of anyone’s time. Your opinions of Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle and Grim Fandango just showed that you haven’t got a clue about these games.

  2. so ok , i judge you 20+ years later more weight out of fashion and used and abused! prefer your daughter s she is more relevant and bangable! judge it from time scope moron!

  3. i dont subscribe cause she is an idiot! who tell the difference between a before an after photo!

  4. watched the hole video unsubscribe, you know shes never played these games doesnt mention different versions etc!

  5. again unsubscribe is the recommendation of average face try to cash in vintage dollars! i formed another account just to dislike!

  6. Great video. A very belatedThanks for posting. 😊

  7. Yeah, you definitely lost a lot of people with your ratings…. Obviously this isn't the genre for you

  8. Day of the Tentacle is S tier. It's the perfect benchmark for what a P&C Adventure should be.
    My number one never showed up. That would be Indiana Jones And The Fate Of Atlantis. Loom, The Dig, and Full Throttle are all A tier games.

  9. I think the transition from requiring CGA/EGA support in games (and having them fit on disks) was the primary reason for the crisp dithered pixel art style which I also loved too. Great video thank you for the nostalgia!

  10. rex nebular was very very funny. Sad it is not on this list.

  11. lsl3 at 7 being your intro adventure game by your aunt is wild lol. that was quite a difficult game, and i'm curious how many of these you beat. quest for glory was my favorite series as well, i started with 3 then went back from 1 (vga) importing characters forward. my favorite was a thief who i gave magic abilities to. i wasn't a huge fan of typing but really enjoyed qfg2 as well in the end. my first sierra games were actually police quest 3 and space quest 4, then i think king's quest 5. i didn't play agd's vga remake of qfg2 – but it's supposedly one of the best ever fan remade games. thanks for the video, fun watch to bring me back 20 years for a lot of games i sunk a lot of time into. you might like laura bow 2.

  12. I absolutely love your content. There’s a severe lack of retro point and click game content on YouTube and I’m so glad I just found your channel. It’s definitely the best one and I can’t believe I went so long without knowing of it. Thanks so much for making these fantastic videos. I just watched your The Dig and Loom videos and they were so polished and entertaining to watch.

  13. QFG5 combat and whatnot isn't bad if you just click through it. And Frostbite trivializes combat anyway.

  14. Why did this lady turn her back on Space Quest?

  15. Leasure Suit Larry 1 was released 4 times. 1. Softporn Adventure. 2. Larry CGA, 3. Larry VGA and 4. Larry HD. Which one was rated?
