No, those titles just didn't appeal to me at all...

Really enjoyed a lot of later adventure games NOT out of the hand of Sierra, like the "Chzo Mythos series", Darkside detective, Gemini Rue and some others.

Oh, and Hero Quest, which had te be renamend to the Quest for Glory, was very enjoyable as well...

Also not interested in those later ones, like Phantasmagoria or Gabriel Knight?

Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder?

Yeah, well I always thought Kings Quest was the lesser one of the collection.
KQ1 and KQ2 are just too similiar, KQ3 was way better, but at the time I found it too difficult to get through. And the others were just "mweh".

I decided to save my money for the titles I really enjoyed.
The only one missing right now is "Conquest Of The Longbow".
And last month I finally got my hands on a copy of "Laura Bow - The Dagger of Amon Ra", sadly I discovered the manual had heavy water damage. So now I'm on the lookout for a better copy of the manual.

Expensive hobby, that's for sure...

Yes… it's probably hard to believe, but I actually never played Larry 3. I know that I got the Space Quest collection from a friend who when he moved didn't have room for his games anymore and gave them to me. But I'm struggling to remember why I have Larry 3. I don't remember buying or – as I said – playing it. The box is even missing one disk. The only theory I can think of is that I received it as part of a lot I bought off ebay, because I wanted something else in it.

By the way, what is it with you and King's Quest? No interest at all? That series is quite noticeably absent.

I'm impressed Mr. Creosote! You know, that Larry 3 game still needs a well written review, if you're up for it. It could be your time to shine and express your love to Sierra. ;)

Here is my Sierra collection! Well, in my defense, I have a handful more Sierra titles, but those are the adventure games I have ;) Yours is clearly more impressive!

Since I pretend to be the big shot Sierra fan around here,

Allow me to at least share my humble collection of the games I've accumulated during the last couple of years. For me, they are a reminder of simpler times, a nostalgic trip through memory lane.
Now, before you start about size, it might be small, but but I love it nonetheless (the collection that is)!

Do you have a classic collection to share? If so, I would love to see some photos!

Regards,

BM.
