i have played and savored almost every major classic sierra game starting with the black cauldron. When you play these incredible adventures, you get this warm feeling about sierra like they are part of your family. this is sorely lacking in games today, as is the true sense of adventure and fun. if you browse you local video game shop, it seems like 90% of the titles are first person shooters – or some other brainless impersonal game. I feel sorry for this generation of gamers, the assortment of games is truely sad now, and it seems that software companies arent striving to make genuine adventure games that totally immerse you like sierra USED to do. Sierra now is just like every other company – making shallow clones of todays lame games.
