    Greatest Games You’ve Never Played: Grim Fandango




    Some of the best games ever made never made it big. Today we explore the adventure game Grim Fandango , from Lucas Arts, for the PC.
    There are more than 10,000 games in existence, and hundreds of games are released every year for each home console. While some titles are held for a moment in the spotlight of the masses’ collective attention, many more glide quietly in the dark, largely unnoticed. Popularity has never been a measurement of quality, with some of the highest quality titles selling fewer copies than their big budget competitors. Whether this is due to marketing difficulties, distribution problems, or low visibility because of a release date close to higher profile titles, these games suffer from a lack of exposure. The unfortunate outcome of these cases is that the innovative ideas that drove these games are usually put on ice, and the next title created by the developer is typically more pedestrian in concept and design. Luckily, with each new generation of games, players are becoming more keen on finding information themselves about what titles are quality, as opposed to purchasing the first game they see on a commercial. This is an ongoing series of the greatest games you’ve never played.

    Grim Fandango


    When the LucasArts epic adventure game, “Grim Fandango,” was released in 1998 for the PC, critics applauded the excellent voice acting and story, while most gamers skipped the title. Created by Tim Schafer, who would later go on to found Double Fine Productions in 2000 and create such infamous titles as Psychonauts and Brutal Legend, Grim Fandango is a game directly influenced by such classic films as Casablanca, The Third Man, and Maltese Falcon.



    The game’s protagonist, Manny Calavera (whose last name means “skull” in Espanol), is a travel agent in the land of the dead. A Limbo-like place between the plane of the living and the underworld, the land of the dead is a realm filled with hard working souls who simply didn’t lead the best of lives, or weren’t well enough off to buy their way to their ultimate, eternal destination.



    Manny spends much of his time helping others with their journey to the underworld, and LucasArts put an incredible amount of time into the writing and voice acting for each of The Land of The Dead’s inhabitants.

    The graphics in Grim Fandango have aged very gracefully, with the title’s polygonal characters blended well with the pre rendered backgrounds. The appearance of each inhabitant is influenced by Day of The Dead, a 3,000 year old festival honoring the lives of those who have died. The uniqueness of each character’s design, mixed with the art deco architecture and film noir camera work makes the game a timeless and cinematic adventure.



    The humor that permeates every moment of the experience continues to be just as charming as it ever has been. The game has been so influential in the gaming industry that fan sites devoted to the game continue to thrive to this very day, including the aptly named Grim Fandango Network. Any gamers who missed this landmark title the first time around should get their hands on a copy and see why Grim Fandango is widely considered one of the best games ever made.

    Here is d gameplay video -




    D gameplay video isn't bad either............

    Game spot reviews are also good -

    Here is d dl link - http://thepiratebay.org/search/Grim%20Fandango/0/99/401

    You let this game go and you'll be missing out on one of the most memorable experiences of your life. If you can look past the dated graphics, you'll find an underlying layer of intricate story and rich humour that modern games, unfortunately, are sadly lacking in. They just don't make them like this anymore.

    Go and play it now, thank me later.
