From Al Lowe's Cyberjoke 3000T:
Today is the 20th anniversary of Leisure Suit Larry. On June 4th, 1987, LSL1:
Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards shipped ...to the lowest
sales of any game in the history of Sierra! I assumed I had just wasted six
months of my life and immediately started work on Police Quest I with Jim Walls
and Greg Rowland. We worked long hours while, unknown to me, each month Larry's
sales doubled. A year later, Larry was in the Top 10 and soon after that was
number one. So lift a glass with me to my dear departed friend, Mr. Laffer!
Together we had one hell of a decade of great times.


We miss you, Larry.

That game was simultaneously awful and hilarious to play. Granted, while I'm glad I didn't actually spend MONEY on it, I am glad I got to play the cheesy thing, and hear those AWFUL pick-up lines.
