This is a thread for fans of KQ7, imo one of the more underrated games in the series.

  • 90s Myst clones?

    Journeyman Project series was better than KQ7... More compelling storylines, interesting characters, atmospheric, etc...

    I liked Zork Nemesis and Zork Grand Inquisitor more than KQ7...

    Being a 'myst clone' was not necessarily a bad thing. I never could get into Myst, but some of the clones were actually quite compelling...

    BTW, I like KQ7 more than Myst... But like it less than the few Myst Clones mentioned above I played...

    I do probably like KQ7 a bit better than Sierra's attempts as 'Myst cloning'...

    Of course. But none of that is useful in telling the difference between something that merely attracts opposing minority opinion and something that is underrated.

    Well then, I think KQ7 is overrated in this thread. :p

    (But definitely much better than the worst Myst-clone I ever played.)

  • Yeah, I was clearly just trolling, too. :)

    KQ7 still sucks balls though.

    Even the best games/movies/music has it's detractors as you said.

    In spite of what numerous school teachers have told you, it is entirely possible for personal opinion to be incorrect.

    That said, KQ VII isn't *that* bad, just not really up to the standards of the previous games.

    The idea that all 'personal opinion is equally right' reminds me of 1984!

    2 + 2 = 5!

  • In the words of my once 3-year-old sister, "dun like it."

  • Your three year old sister didn't like KQ7? Wow, and I thought that was the age group it was targeted at!

  • No, she didn't say that about KQ7, she just used to say that about stuff she didn't like. I'm just quoting her in regards to my opinion on KQ7.

  • KQ7 wasn't my favorite KQ, but I enjoyed playing it (even with the little kiddieness). We finally got to be Valanice and I liked the story. I wished you were allowed to use text cause sometimes it's hard to understand some characters.

    I'd rather play any of the KQ games compared to Myst. I don't even consider that an Adventure game, it's more like a puzzle game.

  • I liked KQ7.

    I had issues with specific gameplay aspects [namely, inability to increase walking speed and inability to save on the fly (I had the earlier version of it)] and I encountered the wooden-nickel-in-the-faux-shop bug on my first playthrough, but overall I really did like the game.

    Granted, KQ7 didn't meet the standard KQ6 set (which is still one of favorite adventure games ever), but I hated KQ5's voice acting (and, to a lesser extent, the pie-on-yeti and cheese-machine puzzles) so much that KQ7 was and is considered by me to be head-and-shoulders better than KQ5.
