I don't think this poll is statistically meaningful though, the people who participate may be...biased. Still, it's my favorite game ever.

It was good... but not perfect.


I'm done putting links in my signature because every time I do it just links to some old crap I've long since stopped updating.

Personally it was not the best game I've ever played but it was much better than the usual rubbish that comes out these days. I'd say 9.5/10.

Best game I've ever played, and thus I gave it a 10


We may have years, we may have hours, but sooner or later, we push up flowers.

Voted perfect. I've said it once and I'll say it again, I don't believe there has ever been or ever will be a more perfectly executed game than Grim Fandango.

Well of course nothing's perfect, but this game comes close to perfection... and it definitely deserves a TEN.

But I doubt there will be many scores less than an 7 in the poll, i mean, this community is formed from people that range from those who are intereseted in Grim Fandango to those who absolutely love this game.

While most say it's the best adventure game, I still think and always will think that it is the best game ever made...

It was a great game but no game, movie or music video is worth 10/10. I loved Grim Fandango but if you look at every aspect of the game there are some parts that could be better. Like the graphics for instance. While the backgrounds looks amazingly beautiful, the characters could look better. Of course I realise this game was made for computers in 1998 but I'm just saying that, now that we're used to realistic looking game models, the Grim Fandango characters just don't look as beautiful. I'm not someone who loves or loaths a game solely for their graphics, as I said; I love Grim Fandango and other older games such as Monkey Island 1 and 2, Sam and Max, Beneath a Steel Sky, ... despite their "bad" graphics. It's just that if you look at it now it's just not as good anymore, that's all.

Well, it's kind of true, but I'm in love with whoever designed the buildings.


People believe what they want to believe, Calavera.

I voted 10/10 more for sentimental reasons, sure the game has issues (controls etc) but I wasn't taking this poll too seriously
