For me, the Sierra games I have are a special link to the past, a link to better times in my life. A time when the computer was a mystical device where I could escape, and let me tell you, I was in the worlds Sierra created back then.

I used to have a sizeable Transformers collection, and I sold it. I do not miss it. On the other hand, one look at my Sierra games boxes and I am transported to better times, playing through King’s Quest I with my older brother. Even computer game stores had a mystical feeling back then.

It’s not about the games itself anymore. It’s about happier times where my imagination was free and powerful, and the worries of the world where unknown to me. I’m not living in the past, but I do like to look through that window sometimes, and take a peek and recapture some of those feelings, albeit breifly.

Those Sierra game boxes take me there.
