LucasArts is Dead: Let's Remember The Good Times

I don't get wistful that often when it comes to gaming news. Companies come and go, but LucasArts was something special. It's time to remember that.


Yes, the LucasArts of more recent memory was not the company it was in the 1990s. Yes, the luminaries of old had left to found their own companies. But we shouldn't let our cynicism outweigh our respect for the games that shaped us as gamers.

Below are just a few of the brilliant games made in the hayday of LucasArts. Let's remember them, in quiet solemnity, and reflect on a time when one company did so much in such a short span of time.
