The original KQ2. KQ2+ gave the game, well, a reason for being there, what with the actual plot and all, and making it much more relevant to the rest of the series. The original? Bah! You walked into the tower room and this girl says she'll marry you because you gave her some earrings you found in a tree and paused to ask her name?! Not *quite* my idea of finding true love. Valanice had more involvement in KQ2+, though, and it actually gave her a reason for liking Graham, too.

I'd otherwise vote for KQ7, I think. While I enjyoed it and all, it seemed very... separate from the other games. Oh, sure, tied in Edgar again and all, but... I dunno. The others maybe connected more for me.

Yeah, after the original KQ2, my second choice would probably be KQ7.  I'd still keep KQ1 since it proves how noble Graham is, and shows how he actually became King when he wasn't related to royalty at all.  ::)

I don't know if we're even told in any of the other games that Graham isn't related to royalty.  Someone correct me if I'm wrong...so that's why I chose KQ1...didn't feel like it was absolutely necessary *shrugs*

I'm not sure if it was brought up in other games either. :-\  But it makes him seem less "Paris Hilton" and more like someone that earned the crown and kingdom.  :P

I don't remember where, but didn't someone consider/try making a Kings Quest 0?

Oh well, I'm probably just remembering a conversation in the forum. :)

Without KQ1, you wouldn't know Graham was once a knight.  ;D

I’d omit “King’s Quest VII” because I didn’t care for the immature turn the story and art took. That and it never seemed to work right on my computer…  :suffer:


That’s just my two cents…

I might be wrong(she might have just been saying how bad KQ1 was), but I think Storm and I agreed on something! :o

Well...it depends on how you classify them.  Lousiana went by what added to the storyline...and by that measure it makes sense.  However, I have a feeling all of these games will be also be tied together in KQ9 from what I see so far (feel free to correct me).  So that kinda negates that really, if they are all tied together in this new adventure.  Anyways, I guess I'll base mine on pure annoyance.

The original KQ2 made absolutely no sense and was just a buncha fairytales all tied together.  I'm sorry but I found it irritating beyond words.  Especially the horrible purple landscape behind that silly looking door.  When I was finished playing it I was like..whah?  So that gets my vote.

Drop KQ1. Quest to secure three lost artifacts of nominal importance? That just isnt exciting anymore... :-\

I don't see how anyone could want to remove KQ1. Every quest must start somewhere.

Hee.

Actually, KQ3 would make a good secondary start for the series, IMHO.
