      I’m 36 now and constantly reminisce with my brother about the original Kings Quest on our Tandy. He still thinks I’m the greatest gamer in history because I beat Kings Quest 2 and 3 both without saving the game lol. In Kings Quest 3, typing the spells correctly without one single mistake was a task on its own.

      Anyway, I miss you Sierra!!

      I’m 26 and I grew up playing Sierra games. I stumbled upon these forums because I was really missing all those great Sierra games I used to play when I was younger. I wish that Sierra didn’t get sold off and that the current intellectual property owners would give all those Sierra classics the kind of modern re-release they deserve. I have the King’s Quest collection on Steam but unfortunately whether it’s on Steam or when I try to load up the old discs there are so many compatibility problems now.

      Hi David;

      Virtually every Sierra game can work under the latest version of Windows.  Check out the Sierra Help Pages first at http://www.sierrahelp.com to check for updates, patches, or other modifications to make your games work.

      Also be sure to check out ‘Good Old Games’ where you can buy old Sierra games for anywhere from $2.99 – 9.99 each (and sometimes, a collection of games for under $10).  These games are exactly the same as you remember them except they have been modified to run under Windows XP/Vista/7.  Right now many Sierra games are on sale, too.  Check out http://www.gog.com/en/catalogue#all_genres/search/sierra/

      Thanks for that C_Guy. I’d heard of that website before but I never realized that they actually worked on making old games compatible. They had a sale going on and I purchased ended up buying almost all of the Police Quest, Space Quest, and of course the King’s Quest games. The only 2 I didn’t see that I wanted to check out again were Gold Rush and Torin’s Passage.

      As already noted, virtually EVERY Sierra game can be made to run on modern machines. Check out the work Collector has done making that possible at the already linked Sierra Help. Join us on the forums if you have any issues: http://sierrahelp.com/forums/index.php

      You mentioned Gold Rush and Torin’s Passage:

      Gold Rush: http://sierrahelp.com/Games/GoldRushHelp.html

      Torin’s Passage: http://sierrahelp.com/Games/TorinsPassageHelp.html

      For patches and such to make them run on modern machines. If you mean them not being on Gog.com, that may be entirely possible. Not checked.
