    My friend is trying to find out the name of a video game he played years ago and the only aspect about the game he could remember is:
    You go to a family of moles in one part of the game and there is a laugh track while you're there.
    Does anybody remember a video game where you visit a family of moles? If you do, you'd be of much help as my friend's new goal in life (for the day) is tracking down this game. [​IMG]

    Hmm, what's the genre? I'm not sure why, but for some reason this has me thinking of either one of the Simon the Sorcerer games, which I've never played, or maybe Torin's Passage, an old Al Lowe game?
    Normally I'm pretty sharp with spotting old adventure games [​IMG].
    Oh, wait, is this video or computer game?

    Yup, that's indeed from Torrin's Passage: a segment called "The Bitternuts" from the second area in the game if I'm not mistaken. Along with the laugh track, there's also the cheesy old sitcom announcer ("Tune in next time, when you'll hear Bobby say...").

    Minus 10 points to Gryffindor for Mark's utter geekiness at knowing that though [​IMG]. Imagine how much useless video game trivia I'll retain when I turn 25. I swear, if my girlfriend didn't tolerate this, it could be a problem [​IMG].
    Glad I could help your friend. Tell him to try something hard next time [​IMG]

    Maybe one of us should be the Videogame Geek for Beat the Geeks...
