Now that telltale is reviving old favorites, it seems like time to cash in on some of the old Sierra gold we all loved as children. I, personally, remember many long hours spent working through the puzzles of Quest for Glory, King's Quest (yes, I was one of those gamers), Space Quest, and various other titles that strangely seemed to lack the word "quest" in their title. I mean, it was the golden age of gaming.
After Mist hit the market everyone scrapped plot and character development for ridiculously difficult puzzle sequences, which, oddly enough, seem to have been replaced by those sad, underdeveloped search for hidden object type games. Since telltale is one of the few companies (still around) that actually takes the time to create well plotted, character rich games, it seems they would be a good match for the old sierra games. (Actually, to tell the truth, I really just miss the "questy" type games that seem so sparse these days. I would settle for something really and truely questy. Apparently I'm a sucker for high adventure and improbable romance.)
While I admit that titles like King's Quest probably (and by that I mean definitely) had too many games created, I probably played KQ VI like fifty times because I loved the plot. (I still wish I could marry Prince Alexander sometimes). Don't get me wrong-- I LOVE Telltale's humor, but I also love adventure gaming in the old school sense. Is it just me, or do other people feel the same way? And what old games do you think Telltale could do well?
(And I still want Sam and Max Season 3 to come out.)
