GK is my favorite series of all time along with King’s Quest. For mature subjects, it blows away everything else. For me, 3 was by far the best. The entire interface and gameplay is simply genius, the story is pretty much unsurpassable in my opinion (I can’t imagine how a GK4 could have topped it, though I’d like to see:), and the puzzles and information are just brilliant. All the games are great, but GK3 just went well above and beyond in terms of how plastered to the screen I was and how deep the story was (truly genius the way it connected real-life mysteries and legends, and it preceeded DaVinci Code mind you) and how well paced and fun the game is. I’d love to see a graphical update of it to a more modern level, wouldn’t that be incredible? It’s THE perfect game, in my opinion.
Seriously, screw Sierra for ditching the best games we’ve ever seen. And screw LucasArts for the same reason, I can’t believe how they’ve turned their backs COMPLETELY. I mean, GK was a highly successful series, I just don’t get why they ditch these forever but still hold on to the rights.
