Leisure Suit Larry, created by  Al Lowe, is a series of adult-themed video games that began in 1987. In the original series, players follow Larry Laffer, a middle-aged virgin in the first game, and try to help him seduce women. You can see a full playthrough of the original game here. A spin off series, following Larry’s nephew Larry Lovage, began in 2004 with Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude. It featured very different game play, as seen in this video.
