Today, playing Maniac Mansion would seem to many like a chore. In it's time, its controls were seen as fine, and its SCUMM system as revolutionary. However, regardless of the time period one would experience Maniac Mansion, it would typically be appreciated for its hilarity and its great puzzles. I remember both my brother and I logging dozens of hours into this game in an attempt to view the multiple endings for each character. This was the game that had started my obsession with LucasFilm Games in the early nineties.
