KQ6, since it still managed to havea happy ending. :P

KQVI, since it was pretty elaborate to reach either ending (unlike KQVII). :P

I have played through MoE(KQ VIII), and if there is one, I have never seen it. Well, unless you count the "peril" sequences(if you did that, all of the KQ games have WAY more than 2 alternate endings). :P

Ok I knew about 6 and 7, but what are the alternate endings to 2 and 4?   ???

4-Graham dies.
2-Dracula's at the wedding.

2-There is no wedding ;P

In addition to the two major paths that you can take in KQ6, isn't there also a slightly different ceremony if you never got the ring back from the pawn shop?

2-There is no wedding ;P
That's what happens if you die? :P

I think what he means is that it's possible to activate the ring before getting Valanice to go with you. You return to Daventry alone and there is no wedding.

Graham dies if you don't get back within 24 (game)hours.

There are two paths you can take in KQVI. In one you rescue Cassima's parents from the Realm of the Dead, in the other they stay dead.

Post by: BumpOnALog on December 17, 2006, 06:28:39 PM
Ohh ok, I forgot about that.  It's been a while since I played the original KQ II, but I had no idea that you could kill off Grahm in IV !!!.  I think I'll have to go try that  :sneaky:

EDIT:  :!Oops:

(Gives deepest apologies to those offended by my exclusion of roman numerals before)

Actually, the KQIV ending has many variations depending on what you did previously in the game:

If Alex sends his signet ring to Cassima, or reclaimed it from the pawn shop, it will become the wedding ring. If not, there will be no wedding ring.

Cassima's parents may or may not be at the wedding, depending on if Alex saved them from the Land of the Dead.

Jollo will behave differently at the wedding depending on if Alex befriended him and if Cassima's parents were saved.

The genie and rulers of the island may or may not attend the wedding, depending on if you saved the genie, discovered the stolen treasures and saved Cassima's parents.

The keys to getting the ultimate ending are to send the signet ring to Cassima, befriend Jollo, save Cassima's parents, save the genie, and discover the stolen treasures. Do none of these things to get the worst (successful) ending.

KQVI, as I haven't seen the others. :P

Do you people have problems with roman numerals? ;P

LOL I thought I was the only one that noticed that. XB

Yeah I thought I was seeing things, obviously I wasn't. :P

I'm confused. XD

I know my roman numerals though! :P

Some people were talking about KQVI and typing KQIV. :P

Now for those other few people:

Some people were talking about KQ6 and typing KQ4. :P

I'll say IV right now only bacause I havn't finished VI. Maybe over X-Mas weekend.

Post by: oberonqa on December 20, 2006, 04:49:09 PM
I'm going to have to go with KQVI... if for no other reason the alternate ending requires going through a great deal of additional content that, in my opinion, fleshed out the story in greater detail than the regular ending.
Title: Re: Which King's Quest game...
Post by: dew7 on May 06, 2007, 11:48:56 PM
KQVI --- for the same reason as above

 ;)
Title: Re: Which King's Quest game...
Post by: PirateKingChris on May 07, 2007, 12:00:58 AM
Though this poll is long over...KQVI is best in most categories, including multiple endings :)
Title: Re: Which King's Quest game...
Post by: tessspoon on May 07, 2007, 05:49:28 PM
KQVI.

psst... I think VI won... ::)
Title: Re: Which King's Quest game...
Post by: dead4life on May 13, 2007, 05:36:12 AM
IV, just 'cause by the time i finished the fairy quest, i forgot about the stupid fruit anyway. Graham died my first play through ; ;

but VI is still my favorite in the series :D
