What Tim Schafer game has the best writing (strawpoll)

Recommended Posts

A few of those have little to no involvement in the writing department from Tim (Maniac Mansion, The Cave, Costume Quest 1/2 [I think he made a few small contributions to CQ1 but I'm not certain]).

For me, it was a tough pick between Psychonauts and Grim Fandango, but I went with Grim.

Another thing to keep in mind is that Tim actually co-wrote psychonauts with Erik Wolpaw and it's not really clear how much of the writing was Tim's / Erik's, though Tim was obviously the creative director and had a bigger influence on the writing that way.

Yeah I figured he wasn't involved in every single game but the only thing that links those games to Double Fine is Tim Schafer so that's why I included them anyway. Thanks for the votes guys.

For hilarity, probably Day of the Tentacle.  For story, definitely Grim Fandango.  That's Tim's magnum opus in my opinion.

Tough choice between Grim Fandango, Psychonauts and DotT for me, but since GF is all Tim, and has great writing, I decided to go with that.
