I enjoyed KQ2016 a lot.  I can understand why fans of the original series might not be too impressed but I have a huge fondness for the game.  I've played through in its entirety numerous times and always look forward to playing again.  To me, if it can make an accessible entry in a beloved series, which means people may give the original entries a chance, I'm happy for its existence.

Of course there were weaker chapters gameplay-wise than others...  But I found huge enjoyment in doing a marathon playthrough one day a couple of months back and it made a certain chapter a bit more tolerable...

Talk about a blast from the past! Mango...I was DanceMagicDance. Not sure if you remember me. But wow! It's awesome to see you're still around here. How have you been all these years??? :)

As far as the new KQ....I loved it, then I hated it, now I feel neutral. As a reboot, divorced from the original games, it isn't bad. It just needs to standalone as its own entity, King's Quest, but just not Sierra's King's Quest. Viewed from that perspective, it isn't a bad game, it's just not what I personally was hoping for.

I bought the series today but have not played it yet. Trying not to have preformed opinions. Hopefully I'll enjoy it as is.

Hey, it's been almost a month. Was wondering what you think of it? :)

Hahahah, I'm terrible at remembering to log in, so literally just seen this! I do remember you, it's always great to see some familiar faces here :) I've been okay, taking thigs one day at a time... only numerous years older! How about you?

(On-topic, I feel I owe this game another playthrough soon)
