A couple of weeks ago I was at GDC, surrounded by hundreds of people talking about the present and future of games. Like, I don't care, you can just like it. But protest too much, perhaps? Forget what your kneejerk reaction is!
The original Leisure Suit Larry trilogy is about finding true love! On one level I understand what people found interesting about it. I got run over immediately by walking into the street without realising, because when you press an arrow key, Larry will keep walking in that direction until he hits something, or you pick another direction. Or a car hits you. To my modern sensibilities figuring out text-based controls are kind of a puzzle in themselves.
Text commands give you more freedom to experiment, in some ways. You can put stuff in for shits and gigs to see if the developers anticipated different kinds of smartassery. I agree that Leisure Suit Larry is not about sex, because almost immediately I started looking at it as a series of blocks I was pushing around. From what I understand, this is how the depressed peacocks that call themselves "pick-up artists" think of it as well.
I tried to go home, because it struck me that this would be the best thing Larry could do. Go home, watch Queer Eye, eat some Monster Munch. Just chill out mate. Learn to love yourself.
But that instruction just deposited Larry in the Sierra factory again. The poor bastard has no escape. A dive bar with four rooms and a sex worker living over it. Does he take a cut, as well as her pimp? The peculiar logic of leisure suit larry sex scenes games makes everyone in here weird. A woman at the bar is going out with the drunk dude collapsed outside the bathroom.
Is it a universal remote that he carries around with him? Dude, your girlfriend is right there. You can sneak past the pimp really easily and go upstairs. This is, apparently, where the sex worker lives. Her underwear is on a washing line strung across the room. Ah yes, of course. After finishing, Larry has the revelation that fucking a sex worker in the secret upstairs room of a bar was a shallow experience. He wanted something meaningful, godammit!
So I left out of the window. Back to the Sierra factory again. In a way, Larry is a victim here. The shop was… a trip. I discovered that the game forced me to pay the cab driver after he dropped me off anywhere. I visited the sex worker again and, being careful to use a condom this time, and having read the same revelation about wanting real love, tried paying her afterwards. It does not make Larry a more sympathetic character to me. It does not make me think that this game could be about romance and love. But I have to pay the cab driver. Ah yes, Larry is about love because Afterwards, I accidentally got Larry run over by a car again.
Then I turned it off. Legion War is the perfect summer wargame.
