I couldn't agree with you more there.

As for my biggest surprise, I'd probably have to say Callahan's Crosstime Saloon. I never really had any interest in it when it first came out so it kind of slipped under the cracks for me for a long time, but when I did finally get around to checking it out a couple of years ago, I was absolutely blown away. It's still one of the best written video games I've ever played and manages not only to be consistently hilarious, but also really sweet and touching at times.
