Sam & Max

Sam & Max is a media franchise that goes even beyond gaming, existing in many forms of media and beloved by many. The titular characters began their life in a comic strip, which ran for 10 years, with a revival in the mid 2000's. It was based on this popularity that LucasArts offered the series creator Steve Purcell the opportunity to develop a video game on the crazy pair and their parody universe. With 5 games in the series, 3 of which have been recently remastered, it seems the popularity of this pair is here to stay.
