How many people out there used to play old sierra adventure games?

Sierra adventure games were and still are my favourite games ever, there was something about them that modern days games just dont have.

I remember playing them for hours on end typing away "open door. close door, get sword etc" and it really did feel like an adventure, whether it was not doing the check on the police car in Police quest and dying, or not using protection when visiting a "lady of the night" in lesiure suit larry and your manly parts exploding.

Although i loved them all these were my all time favourites -
- Quest for glory series
- Space Quest
- Police Quest
- Kings Quest
- Leisure suit larry (great laugh)

It would be great if they could make a comeback into todays world with maybe improved graphic and sound but somehow keep the original adventure appeal to them.

Anyway, i just wanted to start this thread to reminisce about the good old days of computer games. And maybe get a petition going to replace COD and WOW with text based adventure games

Not sure if any of these are available, but...

Several old game developers games are now free! 100% no strings attached.

www.myabandonware.com...
(That is a link to their Sierra games.)

This is all legal (IE no copyright infringement):

What is an abandonware?

An abandonware is a game no longer published by its company.

I knew there would be at least one


Other folks; be sure to check the link out too. Plenty of old free games on there, and elsewhere (run a Google search for "abandonware")

Lastly, enjoy that game!

Did anyone else ever play the Gabriel Knight series??? They are probably my favorite 3 games of all time. I keep hoping they make a 4th installment.

I never could make it through any of the games without peeking at a walkthrough. But they all had great stories.

Police quest was fun too. I used to play it on our old Commodore Amiga. I downloaded the first one a while back, but the driving part is too frustrating

King's Quest was amazing. The satisfaction from figuring things out is hard to match even today. A lot of it was pretty tricky.

Yeah, the driving was awful, especially when using a keyboard. One wrong click then into a wall and game over. I remember when you had to actually chase someone down with the sirens on, it went really fast, I think i must have played that bit over 100 times! But that was the fun.

S&F for you. These games completely shaped my gaming life. I think they also shaped my sense of humor. While most of my friends were off playing their nintendo. I was busy playing Kings Quest and Space Quest. (Never really got into police quest although I had the games) Sure I played nintendo, but the play style didn't appeal to me as much. Today I much more of a MMORPG P.C. gamer than a console gamer. I would love to go back and play the first few Kings and Space quest games just for old times sake.

I remember playing one or two of the King's Quest games. They were quite fun, though the problem with that sort of game is that it's pretty much got zero replayability. It's great the first time around, though.

Ah, the good old times


My three favorites where Police Quest 2, Space Quest 3 and Codename: Iceman.
I still have the original boxes with Amiga disks of Space Quest 3 and Codename: Iceman laying at home
