          Space Quest III was great. I absolutely loved that astro chicken sub-game and played it for hours as a child It was a very basic game like lunar lander, but more fun. I also have never forgotten that priceless bit where Roger WIlco puts a ladder in his pocket and makes some joke about how it made his pants look big (if you know what I mean )

          Quest for Glory (Hero's Quest), the orriginal, was a great game. I very much enjoyed it. Everything from Baba yaga to the snowman to the hermit and the theive's guild. Great stuff. That series got worse with time though. QG II was great. QGIV was ok. QGV and later blew.

            I only played Space Quest V, but it was the funniest game I have ever played. And I also enjoyed the point-and-click interface. No more typing commands! Finnaly!

            For those who played the game, did you ever turned the cloacking shield off before boarding the Goliath SS?
            You got instantly killed by a Goliath photon, and the following ending message was: "DUUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! You died because you were dumb!"
            Oh, the good times...

                Popeye? Bleagh! I'd rather play Commando, Ghost 'n Goblins or Outrun!

                Elevator Action was cool though, simple&fun to play with nice music -dada-daa-daa-dadadadaaaah- . I played it a lot after MAME became popular in '97/98 as it was one of the few emulated arcade games that ran on my aging 486.
                Skeptics should forego any thought of convincing the unconvinced that we hold the torch of truth illuminating the darkness. A more modest, realistic, and achievable goal is to encourage the idea that one may be mistaken. Doubt is humbling and constructive; it leads to rational thought in weighing alternatives and fully reexamining options, and it opens unlimited vistas.
