Original Thread: Your Mom's A Lush In Every Reality - Let's Play Back To The Future



Back To The Future: The Game is a point-and-click adventure game based on the Back to the Future movies. Telltale Games was nice enough to actually write a whole new story for our time-traveling duo to embark on which starts off after the movies ended. Telltale Games also did an excellent job with the writing, inventing a whole slew of new characters and a ton of dialog options. The game takes place over the course of five episodes, a formula they later went on to use for The Walking Dead game.

The game controls and HUD are wonderfully simple with no quick time events or platforming needed, most sections of the game involve guiding Marty around and interacting with people and objects in the world either directly or with items in your inventory. There's a bit of puzzle solving to be done but there's also a handy hint system just a click away so you don't have to think too are playing as Marty who has spent years sucking on car exhaust while hitching rides around town on his skateboard.
