Cal0877 thinks the legacy sequel Return to Monkey Island deserved a slot on the list of 2022 GOTY nominees, rhetorically asking, “But where’s my Return to Monkey Island?” There hadn’t been a new Monkey Island game since 2009’s Tale of Monkey Island, and though fans found a Guybrush Threepwood reference in Uncharted 4, that didn’t exactly leave fans fulfilled.
However, the legacy sequel finally arrived in 2022, and it’s better late than never, as game developer Terrible Toybox pulled out all the stops. The point-and-click adventure is just as entertaining as ever, the puzzles are just as challenging as ever, and the beloved aesthetic hasn’t changed one bit.
