Since updates are slow, I was just wondering what everyones favorite Sierra Adventure games were....I know we all love LucasArts Adventure games, but Sierra had some pretty good ones. I'll start...

Roger Wilco in Space Quest IV

    Probably Gabriel Knight, any of the games really. Kings Quest is good too (except for Mask of Eternity)

  • I think it was space quest 6 or maybe it was 5. I'd play up to the point where I was to get into a ship ( in a junk yard type level) and was about to start it up and then I'd run out of ram and the game would crash. So I think I would have enjoyed it more had I been able to play all the way through it Good old 386 days

    Kings Quest 7 was also a little bit of a let down, compared to the other games. I didn't understand why they would include the ability to jump to whatever chapter you wanted. Same thing with Torin's Passage. The Mask of Eternity wasn't a bad game by itself, but just the simple fact that they threw the King's Quest name on a game that had no right to bear it made the game an instant suck-fest.

    As for my favorite games, I would go with the Gabriel Knight series. It's just a pity that with Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned, Sierra created a new 3D engine that could have made their other adventure games play in a completely different way. imagine 3D Space Quest, or Kings Quest, running on the same gaming engine. Too bad they had to go and just forget about the adventure gamers.

    LOL, I like the ones that are funny... wait, that's none of them.

    GK1 was a great game. Unfortunately, GK2 and 3 weren't.

    Gabriel Knight, Hands down.

    GK3 was iffy in spots, a lot of the puzzles weren't as integrated as they could have been.

    GK2 was great though. Definitely the best FMV game that came out of that whole craze (though that's not really saying much). But the story and locations were cool, and the acting was actually pretty good.

    I remember it annoyed me at first because I couldn't 'pick' what action I wanted to perform and it was all automatic, but then again cycling the right mouse button isn't exactly the epitome of gameplay.

    Quest for Glory series (except the 5th game), although they featured some not-so-well-done type of RPG elements. The game had great strory though, nice seting and most importantly - one of the greatest comic characters in the history of adventure gaming: the wizard Erasmus.
