4. Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude
This Leisure Suit Larry game follows the story of college student Larry Lovage, who’s trying to get on a TV dating show (and bed as many campus girls as possible in the process too…). Magna Cum Laude surely was a game of firsts: not only was it the first game in the series not to feature Larry Laffer as protagonist, but it was also the first Leisure Suit Larry with which series’ creator Al Lowe wasn’t involved with. The game ditches the slight subtlety of the earlier Leisure Suit Larry games and instead goes for American Pie-style humor and frankly isn’t so great.
Oh, and Magna Cum Laude also has the honor of being one of the few video games to have been refused classification by the Australian Classification Board, meaning it was banned in Australia, and remains so to this date (this also applies to the tamer, censored edition of the game by the way). If you want to find out what all the fuss is about, and uncut version of Magna Cum Laude emerged on Steam a couple of years ago, letting you experience the game’s adult-themed minigames and so-so humor for yourself.
