The Deathspank series and 'On the Rain Slick Precipice of Darkness' 1 and 2 are all cartoon like games with, first and foremost, lots of fun dialogues. I got the first Precipice game in a bundle and just gave it a try, then after finishing bought the others.
These are all great games, I love the 2D artwork and the way the whole thing is put together. For instance, mall details like when you switch weapons you see Deathspank wielding it in the preview (I know this is common among the bigger game developers but for a relatively unknown game maker it is nice to see that they created a finished rather than a rushed product) .
Unfortunately the screenshots alone do not do these games justice since you are not aware of the funny dialogue (if the first game wouldn't have come with the bundle, I bought, I probably wouldn't have tried them at all).
Deathspank is secondly a hack and slash. Although you die rather frequently (ok, I die rather frequently :-) ), you will just respawn close by so it isn't such a big deal. Personally I have set it to the easy setting and then it should be playable by anyone, I think.
I really love all of these games and finished ORSPD 1 and 2 twice (note that I didn't play ORSPD 3 and 4 because these are different kind of games with retro graphics) and Deathspank 1 once.
I would recommend any of them if you enjoy a not so serious game with lots of fun dialogue.
