I really love the adventure game genre as a whole, and Maniac Mansion is the yard stick by which I measure all others.

Maniac Mansion was LucasFilm's (now LucasArts) first entry into the realm of interactive storytelling games, and what a whopper it was. The storyline centers around a group of teenagers and the inhabitants of a strange mansion. Dave's girlfriend Sandy has been kidnapped by an insane scientist (with the oh-so-wicked name of Dr. Fred) and you must take Dave and two of his friends to rescue her. In the process, other odd characters and hidden plots are revealed.
