Tomorrow, the remastered version of the one of the best-loved adventure games of all time hits PlayStation Network: Grim Fandango. While adventure games might seem like a relic of the past to some, they're an important part of gaming's history, and also a genre that continues to be relevant today. Telltale Games is the most obvious studio making inroads in this genre these days, with The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, and more in their portfolio.

There are plenty of examples of great adventure games. Here are eight of our favorites to pass the time with once you've finished up Grim Fandango Remastered. Some of them aren't exactly easy to lay hands on nowadays, but if you can, they're worth the effort.

Full Throttle

It seems fitting to start the list off with another Tim Schafer-developed title. Full Throttle is set in the year 2040, in a world where motorized vehicles are being replaced by anti-gravity hovercrafts. The main character, a biker named Ben who leads a gang called The Polecats, ends up trying to save the last domestic motorcycle company from being turned into a minivan manufacturer by its evil vice-president.

This one is really hard to find, as none of the digital sites have it yet. You might get lucky on eBay.
