Are the LSL games any good? Or is it just nostalgia that gets people to talk about them so much?
It's a little of both. Anyone who did not grow up with these games might think the games are dumb as 1 - 3 are the old-school....type-text? adventure games (you have to type "open door" if you want to open the door) whereas parts 5 - 7 and the remake of part 1 were point and click adventures.
Basically before Steve Carrell, Larry Laffer was the original 40-year-old virgin and your goal is to get him laid. Unfortunately, wacky hijinks ensue during every encounter preventing him from "closing the deal." Each game is chock full of innuendo and hilariously bad puns (e. g. in part...6? there is a mother/daughter duo named Nailme and Whydoncha Juggs)
I'm still debating getting this, but still wondering why part 7 was not included - it's the only one I have never played
