The protagonist of future "Tales of Monkey Island"

Since the title is "Tales of Monkey Island" rather than "Tales of Guybrush Threepwood", I wonder what people would think about future "seasons' featuring different protagonists?

Personally, I think that there's something quite appealing about the idea of each season focussing on the "Tales" of various pirate characters who live in the Caribbean. It'd keep the series fresh, and perhaps extend the life and appeal of the franchise. I'd like to see seasons featuring all-new protagonists, but I'm not sure if die-hard fans would accept such changes.

What do people think?

  • I could handle some sort of "Tales Of LeChuck" consisting of storys from when he was a ghost before meeting Guybrush. Or maybe before he died.
  • I voted only Guybrush, but I would live with Tales of LeChuck.

    Actually that sounds amusing. But that's about it.
  • I hate the way Lechucks beard looks in Tales, couldnt stand playin and listening to him for a whole season

    Tales of Murray on the other hand...
  • In Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis there were couple of puzzles where you could play as Sophia Hapgood. It didn't ruin the game that you could control someone else besides Indy, but instead it added some flavour to the game. I wouldn't mind if during some puzzle you could control for example Elaine, but those chapters shouldn't be too long.
  • But Guybrush is 100 times cooler than Indy
  • It's all about Vegetable Goodsoup.. I mean Guybrush Threepwood.
  • ...

    They invent the most perfect Guybrush since Lechuck's Revenge, the Guybrush I've wanted to see for years, and now we're talking about alternative protagonists?

    Nay. I say thee nay!

    Providing they keep the style of Guybrush they have now, they could make 10 seasons and I would very likely buy every single episode.

    If they were to switch protagonists now though, it would kill my ongoing buzz about currently having a proper Guybrush Threepwood, and therefore it'd likely kill my interest in the game.

    Guybrush is iconic to Monkey Island, it'd be like killing Picard in the third or fourth season of TNG. Or it'd be like that one plot they had for Doctor Who, where there'd be no more Doctor and Ace would continue to carry the torch. /shudder
  • Well it's never been:
    The Secret of Guybrush Threepwood
    Guybrush Threepwood 2: LeChuck's Revenge
    The Curse of Guybrush Threepwood
    Escape from Guybrush Threepwood

    I'm just saying...

    Edit: Also, that would be like Star Wars without Luke Skywalker ¬_¬
  • I wouldn't mind if you would have to play Elaine or LeChuck for a while, to see the story from a different perspective. :)
