    Back in the day before Windows 95, there were a whole slew of point and click games out there. Most were very fun at the time. While I'm not sure I'd want to play any of them now, except for Nostalgia's sake, scummvm will let me, or anybody play them.

    Not so sure I agree. And for your information several of the games it supports were released after Windows 95 with Windows support - for example the Broken Sword games, which still look pretty good today.

    These games are still relevant because they don't rely on graphics to deliver. As such, many of them don't look and feel as 'dated' as other titles from that period. The point and click adventure game genre sadly pretty much died after Lucasarts stopped developing, and as such most of these games are still the best the genre offers, even today.

    I know the whole thing continued after the release of Windows 95, but I guess my memory must be slipping, because I remember having to use DOS to get to the vast majority of the games I played. Although Sam & Max is a later game (weren't we on Windows 98 by then?) that was tons of fun. I wouldn't mind playing that one again.

    sam and max have a sh*t load of games to play, From what I understand they actually were developing them in a season, episode fashion. Hit the Road was truly excellant.
