I'm now 37 and Monkey Island remains imprinted on my mind as one of my fondest gaming memories. I doubt anyone will remember any of the multitude of games now available in a similar fashion.
The behemoth that is Disney can likely put food on the table without the Monkey Island IP (shudder - thinking of Guybrush et al in terms of an 'IP' drains a little of the magic so I shall desist at that!).
Cheers Ron (& all the team). Happy birthday MI:)
