video games with a sense of humor  
I want to play a game. Kind of like the old lucas arts games (like monkey island.) I've identified it's not the adventure-puzzle aspect I want, but a game that has enough of a sense of humor to have, say, a mask of tofu, because, of course, the volcano is veggitarian. Sadly this is not something you can search for, or at least not that I've found. I'd also like it to have been made in the past 5 years. Any suggestions that aren't Phsychonaughts?

You've played Grim Fandango, right?

I've watched greg play it. I really should play it myself, but it fails the "last 5 years" test. ("That's not what balloons are for!")

You should check out Sam and Max, by Telltale Games, which comes in short (1-3 hour long?) episodes that you can buy&download as an entire season of 6 episodes each. It is the sequel to the original Sam and Max games, and it is pretty hilarious.

And I second Grim Fandango even though it is an older game.

I can't think of any others - the sequels to Circle of Blood were less funny than the original, sadly, but they were decent games, and the original is probably from the 1990s.

I have found that the reviews on UHS Hints (what we use for hints for any game that has a walkthrough there) are actually pretty well aligned with my tastes tend to give me good ideas:
