The Green Isles... obviously, you get some corrospondence between people's favourite game and their favourite land ;)

I could argue against putting Daventry as being in both KQ1 and MOE... it's hardly the same land. The similarity between KQ1's Daventry and MOE's Daventry ends in their name :P Maybe it should have been "KQ1's Daventry" and "MOE's Daventry" 8)

I gotta pick Serenia. I absolutly loved that game because of the scenery. Ok so the graphics weren't as good as KQ6. But for the time they were great and I think Serenia rocks!

True. That's why I picked it. But it also the contrast in the places you could go and it always felt like there was so much more to explore (at least it did to me).

I picked the green isle because there is a great variaty of places you could go and are all different from eachother.

Ahh, but did you like the game because of the land, or the land because of the game?  :)

The only complaint about The Land Of The Green Isles is that you feel like you only get a little taste of each of the isles... it's like there are large parts of it you don't get to explore :-\

  I have to agree.  As pretty and bright as the Land of the Green Isles was, I always like Tamir.  It had both nice houses and dark forboading places as well.

I can't remember enough of the lands, so I actually didn't vote this time (I thought it would be unjust of me).

However, I did want to say to Rosella, what a lovely avatar you have ;).  :D

I also voted Green Isles. I think it's cause (a) that's everyone's favorite...well, the majority's favorite, around here, and (b) all that variety of place in one game was wicked cool!

But my real favorite is somewhere in KQ9...possibly because I created just about all of it!   ;D

I voted for Tamir...I've always loved KQ4...and just the fact that you get to go into a haunted house and the seven dwarves house.  Also, everytime I go into the haunted house, I feel a little meloncholy...wondering what happened there before hand and everything (and, yes, I do know that it's just a game!)

Tamir is my second favourite... I loved the haunted house and the cemetery. Those epitaphs were very memorable (that's where I learned the word "epitaph" btw).

"Here lies - but forbear
to read more without a tear.
One - I cannot speak the rest
you may weep, I'll smite my breast
Grief preventing, and this stone,
too small to be written on.
Only this - a little boy - Willy
In Abraham's bosom laid"
