Tim Schafer's psychedelic platformer adventure debuted back in '05, instantly making it one of the standout titles of the last gen. The charm Schafer brought to PC adventures Monkey Island, Full Throttle, and Day of the Tentacle is in full effect here and solidifies Psychonauts place as the quintessential "if you know, you know" games of the Aughts.
YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
The Psychonauts concept came from a sequence that Schafer thought up for Full Throttle in which the main character takes peyote, but LucasArts deemed it too inappropriate to include in the 1995 game.
