Mine's gotta be the hero fix-up station!  That was so cute seeing the Graham cameo as a robot or something, in dire need of repair!  ;P

Mine is the King Graham fly by.

Mostly because it's the only one I've seen/remember. :D

My fave is the cameo of Cedric in Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist. He doesn't say anything, but when you try to talk to him the game says "You can almost hear him saying "That's ok Graham, I'll wait out HERE!"" or something like that. XD

Cedric shows up on the west part of the bridge after the snail stampede in that game.

Rob -
KQ2 SPOILER ALERT!!


That KQ2 easter eggs happens when you look in the hole in the rock near the cave on the mountaintop you fly to using on the carpet. IIRC, it shows the intro screen of SQ (with the music).


Amazingly enough, I've seen all those easter eggs except for the SQ4 one. But I think my favorite would have to be the Laurel & Hardy easter egg from QFG3. The King's Quest series wasn't the best of them when it comes to easter eggs, not visual ones anyways. I hope that would be rectified in KQ9 ;)

2 other easter eggs I'd like to mention just for the heck of it - Rosella in the LSL2 barbershop, and on the QFG1 hieroglyphics at Erasmus's house. Anyone notice those?

I know the one you mean in QfG1, Storm, but I never played any LSLs...
Uhm, okay...it just posted this without me telling it to...O_o So, anyhow...EDIT:
I had forgotten about the Laurel and Hardy in QfG3....which then reminded me of the Awful Waffle Walker, which I think is up there on the visual easter eggs...
And then, of course, there's the x-ray glasses from QfG2.  There's two easter eggs from those, iirc.  First, wearing them in front of Ali Chica...and then, wearing them in Rasier when helping Zayishah.

That's what would have had my vote if I'd remembered it at the time!  I wish I could revote!

I never saw the QFG2 x-ray glasses easter egg... haven't explored that game well enough yet :P

About the Awful Waffle Walker, I wasn't sure that's cosidered an easter egg... it was hilarious though, I could have chosen that as well. I'll just vote for "other" then - there are many easter eggs funnier than those specified in the poll, even if I can't remember them all :-\

I will... when I have the time. I always hear people talk about QFG2 and say "WHAT? where was THAT in the game?" so I think I missed about half of it :P The whole paladin thing completely escaped me, for example :S

That was in KQ2+, by AGDI.  I'm assuming that the eggs from that weren't included in the poll because the game wasn't made by Sierra...

FP had some pretty good easter eggs. The Cedric one was great, as was the note from "Kay Graham" :suffer:
