So - if you had to rate the games from best to worse - what order would you put them in?

Maybe say what you liked or disliked, to explain the order, to generate some conversation?

Leisure Suit Larry II - This was the first Larry to have the new graphics - and the game felt larger! The graphics, I thought, were stunning! All the scenes and everything...! This one had everything for me!

Leisure Suit Larry III - I loved that you got to play as Patti - and I thought it was ingenious that the path through the maze was written inside the manual! Hours of frustration and the answer was at the tip of my fingers all along! I just had to sing a song!

Leisure Suit Larry I - We go back to the original where it all started. Simple. Basic. Straight forward. It's only 3rd on the list because it didn't have that much of a story, other than Larry's one goal.

Leisure Suit Larry VI - This was fun - though you're pretty much stuck in the resort and there's not much you can see - the graphics for the ladies were stunning for a game like this.

Leisure Suit Larry VII - This was another one where you're stuck in a specific area - but the animation was done - and the easter eggs were fun to uncover (literally!)

Leisure Suit Larry V - With the no fail, no dead end, no way to die - this game was actually a little too easy. Didn't even care for what passed as a story, which was barely any better than the original game.

LSL4 was my favourite and the only one I've come close to playing. I like how it basically destroyed Xenon and made SQ4 such an interesting game to play. I just wonder where Vohaul found it to imprint himself as a virus on.

Speaking as a child of the 80s, LSL2 was lots of fun. I loved the Communists chasing Larry around the world. I took the time to omit all the various things that Larry has to do, just to see how he would die. :P The only things that irritated me about this is how easy it was to drown in the quicksand or get killed by the bees.

LSL3 was lots of fun too. Very difficult sometimes (the bamboo maze especially). If any LSL were to be made, I wish that LSL2 or LSL3 were to be made. (Pipe dream, I know).

LSL1 - the original - is good fun. And it's been redone more times than Cher's bosom. :P (I can say 'bosom' in the LSL forum, yes?) :P

LSL7 just narrowly beats out LSL6, but only because I love the idea of Strip Liar's Dice. :P But LSL6 is heaps of fun too!

There's not much that I can remember about LSL5. Maybe I should play it again sometime.
