  • Strong Bad has more episodes and there's more stuff to do. But I like the graphics in W&G better. It's up to you.
  • It all depends on which source material you like better. If you are partial to the humor of homestarrunner.com, SBCG4AP is better. If you are partial to the humor of the Wallace and Gromit shorts, then W&G is better.
  • If you're not familiar with either, then:
    - Visit http://www.homestarrunner.com and start watching the Strong Bad emails from the beginning. Watch some of the toons. Decide whether you think it's funny or not.
    - Hire a DVD of Wallace and Gromit - either the shorts or the movie "Curse of the Wererabbit". Watch them and see if you enjoy them.

    The target audience is slightly different for each (W&G is suitable for all ages, Strong Bad has humour suitable for 12+, in my opinion) and the style of humour is also different, and both are different from Sam and Max/Monkey Island.

    Or... download demos for both games and play those and see which one you like more :)
  • As a Monkey Island and Sam and Max fan, I was very happy with SBCG4AP and still haven't bothered to play through Wallace and Gromit past episode one.

    What are you waiting for?!? Get to bothering!
  • The humour of Strong Bad's etc. is 'in your face' wackyness. Wallace & Gromit is more gentle, British humour. They both have their positives and negatives, but once you play the demos, you should have a good idea which one you prefer.

    I agree wholeheartedly.

    That poll is just going to turn into a count of fans of those games on these forums, but that won't tell you which one you might like better. Make up your own mind!
