Hugo games. Oh god...

Movies, TV and Entertainment
Does anyone remember these games, back on the old 90s MSDOS systems? I think there were 3 of them. Good times... I can't tell you how many hours I've invested just trying different ways to use all the different items you picked up, and remember this was before the AOL era and internet walkthroughs for games.

I remember Hugo, and Leisure Suit Larry were similar types of games. And Maniac Mansion. Plus there were a lot of text-based ones...
Oh god yes.

I was absolutely TERRIBLE at them though. I don't think I finished a single one. My 7 year old self wasn't much of a gamer. And yeah, no walkthroughs to speak of.

I do remember Day of the Tentacle and Sam and Max:Hit the Road though. Those were great.
I remember the text-based Questprobe games that featured characters from Marvel comics. It always felt so rewarding when you finally entered a command that worked, after hours of reading "I don't know how to do that" over and over.
