I'll be honest with you: I hated Tales of Monkey Island when I first started playing it. The camera was annoying, the dialogue lengthy and impossible to skip, and the controls were - to put it bluntly - awful.
But I persevered. I have a fondness for the original game, and figured that - even though it had been a long time between drinks - this new incarnation couldn't be all that bad.
...to my delight, my patience paid off (be that a lesson to you).
