    Check out the episodic Sam & Max releases (you can also get a DVD with all of Season 1) they are pretty great and funny.

    If you have access to a DS, Ace Attorney (there are 4 games) and Hotel Dusk is all you're ever going to need :)

    Wait.. "last year or two?" What exactly do you mean by classic? When I think of classic point and click adventures, I'm thinking of King's Quest and Monkey Island, or maybe even Myst... but those are all more than a decade old.

    Yeah, Journeyman Project, etc.

    ...I though the SCUMM engine used for LucasArts point-and-click-type games had been released as share/freeware, and any of the old games could be run on it. Try searching around for more details.

    penny arcade adventures is fun if you like the comic (altho if you like the comic you probably already know about it!) and there is a mac version.
