I must admit to still having NEVER finished KQ3...It's the first adventure game I ever played and I never owned it, I always played bits and pieces at a 2nd cousins years back.....I'm going to attempt it without a hintbook, but having not played a game that hard for years, I dunno how successful I'll be.

And the worst bit of KQ4 for me(though I think I cheated quite a bit after this) was figuring out how to climb up the STUPID whale tongue. My mom, sister, and I kind of played KQ4 together way back when, and that one had us stuck literally for months. I should point out we ordered the hint book from Sierra because of it and it didn't help since it didn't give specific intruction(from what I remember) for climbing it....but everytime we got stuck too long on a puzzle after that, we found it far too tempting to cheat and ended up using the hintbook on other puzzles, fairly often.

Strangely, KQ3 has very few if any pitfalls.  But of course it does have its share of annoying challenges (like knowing you have to just stand there in the pirate ship until it reaches land).

That was the only thing that really annoyed me with KQIII was the time issue and you having to wait for the wizard to leave and also wait for a while in the ship especially after you had solved the puzzles and were playing it again.

I found King's Quest 5 to be the most difficult in the series.  The mazes in the desert and Mordack's castle were difficult.  In addition, it was easy to miss something or do something wrong and not find out until later such as not getting Cassima's locket or as someone else has mentioned feeding the eagle with the pie instead of the meat.  Which King's Quest was the most difficult for you and why

I agree; KQV was difficult due to the mazes and the countless dead ends, but I recall probably dying the most often in KQVIII and must thus conclude that that also had a certain level of difficulty though it doesn't seem it when thinking of the plot.

I don't know about difficult, but for me, KQIII was definitely the most frustrating. For one thing, I would never have thought to hide anything under my bed without looking up the hints. It also took me FOREVER to figure out I that was supposed to move that giant book to open up the trap door. But what I hated most of all was that I kept messing up the spells, because the manual was worded incorrectly quite a few times. I hated how you couldn't look away from the spellbook without dying... a few times, I would accidentally save instead of restore my game when I realized I didn't have an ingrediant, so I'd have to start all over again.
