The correct answer is Gabriel Knight. But I'm sure many will be choosing the incorrect answer.

Quiet you.

I say MI, it was witty, one of the funniest game sI ever played, one of the ORIGINAL Lucas arts games, as for Gabriel knight I hardly ever played them as for adventure games with real FMV's? Euch. lol

And I love Guybrush.. Original characters and just general piratey fun.. none of that dark stuff you get with GK. ^^

Gabriel Knight, of course. Monkey Island is just too goofy and childish for me.

Considering I only liked Gabriel Knight 3 (number 1 was ok), I'd have to say Monkey Island, where all games are good in my opinion (yes, even number 4).

It really depends on the mood I'm in. Both series have some fantastic games in them, but they're not really comparable.

I haven't played Gabriel Knight, but I'm pretty sure I'd go with Monkey Island anyway. I appreciate a good comedy more than the sort of drama that Gabriel Knight is.

It's hard to accomplish now without rehashing old jokes. But I wouldn't say it's in a landslide, there's only been one mediocre game (I'd say it was a decent enough game up to Monkey Kombat - but the game really didn't fit in the whole Monkey Island universe at all).

Apart from the music and Gabriel Knight 3 I don't see the beauti of Gabriel Knight series. What is it about them that's so good? After hunting through Ebay and Tradera for a not too costly copy of GK 1 & 2 I was extremely disappointed. Maybe I'd have enjoyed them more had I played them when they retailed? I mean I love the GK theme with supernatural thriller and such... Black Mirror is a favorite as well and in my opinion superior to Gabriel Knight 1 and 2.

Considering your remark I can say that you don't have a taste at all.

Then enlighten me, what's so good about Gabriel Knight 2 for example? It felt like a click fest to me with hardly any interaction at all.

I found Gabriel Knight boring, but Monkey Island is endlessly inventive. No contest.

Although I like both very much - Monkey Island will always be first-choice for me.

I grew up on them.
Okay, number 4 was crap, but CMI was a great comeback and 1&2 were fantastic.
