I believe Monkey Island saved my life. I was going through a difficult time. The positivity, the funny things, the whole life in this game have been with me for several months in the early nineties. Was bullied in school. Heavily so.

But Monkey Island wasn't just escapism. No. Love the game with all my heart, and do replay it at least once a year. It is true that it can make me feel warm and fuzzy inside when I feel alone and sad. But today, Monkey Island is just ... fun to play. Amazingly fun to play.

Again, I don't know where I would be today, if this game were not around to keep me both occupied and with a smile on my face.
