(re: Sierra games changed my life!)
Steve, the same thing happened to me right after college. It was quite a shock to realize that in 4 years, adventures had literally disappeared from the shelves. I must have been studying really hard!
Luckily, there are a lot of good new games available. Not Sierra games, but adventures that wouldn’t be around if not for what Sierra did for the industry.
Some new(er) games you should check out are Runaway, Shadow of Destiny (also available on Playstation), The Longest Journey, the Law & Order games, and Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon. These should all be available commerically. There are others but these are the ones that come to mind. They can be hard to find at retail (although just today I saw every single one of these on the shelves at either CompUSA or EB Games), but you can also order them online from places like Amazon and Chumbo.com.
Also, check out Tierra Entertainment’s site (link below) and download their KQ1 and KQ2 remakes. The first is a straight VGA remake of Sierra’s King’s Quest 1; the second is a wonderful “extended” version of KQ2 with all new story, graphics, and music, but with all of the same elements of the original game.
