      I remember going to my friends house and trying to play Leisure Suit Larry on his green-monitored computer but we hardly ever got to because we couldn't answer the questions.

            Kings Quest 6 Was my most favorite game of any computer game I ever had. The story was awesome, and the graphics were really amazing at the time.

              The Space Quest series was my favorite, followed by King's Quest and Quest for Glory.

                  Actually my favorite games by Sierra back in the day were from their subsidary Dynamix.

                  1)Aces of the Pacific
                  2)Aces over Europe
                  3)Aces of the Deep (best submarine game ever)
                  4) RED BARON!!!
                  5)Battle Dome

                  Quest for Glory 3,4 or 5, I can't remember was awesome. It had a gypsy camp in it, if anyone can help me out there.


                  Do you mean Eco Quest?

                    Leisure Suit Larry rocked. I solved the very first one before I was old enough to actually know what Larry was supposed to be doing. Great memories. I have the series around here somewhere and got the newest one Magna Cum Laude but haven't devoted a whole lot of time to it. It's pretty raw with some of the visuals...nothing like good antimated videogame porn to get the American male's blood flowing.

                      The only thing I owned from Sierra was King's Quest VII Where the main chracters were Princess Rosella and her Mother. I never did beat the game. I always got stuck on the middle of the thried part. I couldn't get passed there and it irritated me to no end.

                        Oh, yeah, I was a big fan of Sierra, my favorite was King's Quest 3. I liked the Ultima games, too.

                        Does anybody remember Sierra's arcade game, "Thexder"? That was the hardest and most frustrating video game ever made.

                          I loved those early Sierra games, especially the King's Quest and Space Quest series. One of the first PC games I ever got was King's Quest I (which came out in the early 80's). Dynamix put out some really good titles too. A-10 Tank Killer, Stellar 7 and Nova 9 were my favorites. Thexder...omg. It's all coming back to me now. For 1987, that was one seriously kick ass game (and frustrating for sure). I enjoyed that one more than I did Silpheed.

                            I enjoyed Police Quest 3 and Castle of Dr. Brain.

                              No, it was one of the Quest for Glory games. There was a gypsy camp, you reunited the creepy gatekeeper guy to his old wife, and I think there was an Inn where the ale came out of a boar's head. It was one of the few RPG's I've ever enjoyed.


                              That was Quest for Glory 4. The only one i ever played. I loved that game. I wish i still had it.

                                Hey, since we're on the subject: does anyone know where I can dl the original DOS versions of the SQ & KQ series? They've been long removed from Underdogs and recently pulled from Abandonia.

                                  I have the Anthology series of LSL, PQ, QFG and SQ right here! They're still fun to play. I played these back in the day, when QFG was called "Heroes quest".

                                  Starting at around part III in each series, the interface changed to point and click rather than type in commands. I really like the old interface better. "Look under rock." "Attack troll!".

                                      Do you guys know that Sierra made the $100,000 Pyramid for the PC 5 years ago? I did and won $318,200 playing it.

                                        The "Phantasmagoria" games are wonderful as is the similar "The Beast Within."

                                        Sierra was quite a name back then.

                                          the only Siera games that I play is Nascar Racing 2003 (papyrus) and You dont know Jack! (Jellyvision).

                                          just currious, Didn't Siera team up with Minscape in the late 1980s?
