      If anyone knows where I can find any sierra games for sale. Well I should be more specific… I am looking for the Leisure Suit Larry Collection and the Kings Quest Collection. If anyone can tell me where to find any of these games besides ebay ro amazon i would appreciate it. Because amazons prices are outrageous.

      Try here bro.I browse thrugh this site quite often.

      Ye Olde Infocomme Shoppe – Est. 1996

      The guy that runs the site has set up a trade/buy /sell/exchange page and in all my e-mail dealings with him he seems a realy nice person.
      He’s a big time all classics game types and systems collector(but primarely INFOCOM ,hense the name , everyone starts loving games at a diff. point and time)

      He has some listed for sale/trade and very good fair prices.

      (re: Looking for sierra games) Amazon has nothing to do with price… it’s driven by market forces and if a seller beleives the hype and will actually make any sales at those prices then ‘good luck’ to ’em. There’s also a games trading zone which has equally stupid prices.
      eBay is bar far and away the best marketplace for this type of thing. However, you’ll be hunting for a while to find a) what you want – exactly down to boxed, with manuals, etc. b) for the price you’re willing to pay c) choosing the person most likely to complete the sale as stated, etc… It’s far from perfect with far too much end auction sniping for my liking but you can get ‘lucky’.
      From the two you listed. Leisure Suit Larry comes in one of 3 collection boxes. Collection 1 which is labelled in Europe as the Collector’s Edition and elsewhere as Greatest Hits & Misses. Collection 2 (bigger box with flap labelled as Collection Series) adds a talkie version of LSL6 and comes with a great book on the series. Collection 3 is the Ultimate Pleasure Pack and includes LSL7 but with no book… The 3rd pack is the most difficult to get hold of and it’s eBay price is usually $120+
      King’s Quest is available in one of 5 box sets. 3 are near identical bar some packaging detail. This is the 15th Anniversary set which comes in a box with cool looking embossed text, in a standard slip case box with fairly bland pattern or in a (possibly US only) release with some unusual drawing on it. (Peter’s site may have the box shots!). Like LSL, the KQ collection was also treated to the Collection Series large box set and finally all of the KQ games are included in the Roberta Williams Anthology boxset. All very cool if ya can get one/all of ’em 😉

      You have to be careful with the “Collection Series” one though (what Adam termed “Collection 2”), since there’s actually 2 printings of it… Al Lowe recently informed me that it was the first printing that contained the book, while the second printing they cheaped out and didn’t include the book. The book incidentally is the Official Book Of Leisure Suit Larry “Special Edition.” I think there were 2 editions of this book previously – does anyone know if it’s basically the same as the 2nd edition? In any case, it is an EXCELLENT book.

      I should have been more specific with the title. What I was looking for was the Leisure Suit Larry Collection 2, the box with the flap and its kind of long. I have King’s Quest Collection 2 but my parents seem to sometimes not care about my things and trashed the box/manual. They did the same thing with my Space Quest Collection 🙁 I am just trying to get the complete set for them all again. Which kind of sucks because I already had them once lol.

      Also, it may not be the case with the collections you are after, but I recently got the SWAT Career pack, which has Police Quest 1-4 (both versions of PQ1) and Swat 1 and Swat 2. Sadly, the versions of PQ1 SCI and PQ3 on there don’t include the digitized voice which I was seriously upset about.

      i’ll bet you a dirty chicken (???) that the voices are there and that the sound drivers we use don’t access the data.

      you can copy the data onto floppies or put the CD into an older computer, think about 10 to 15 years ago.

      the sounds should play. if not, you can take an older floppy sierra game and take the sound *.drv files for anything from a Disney Sound Source to a Tandy 1000 w/DAC

      this has worked for many friends who are willing to have another PC just to place vintage Sierra
