Title: So, am I the only one...
Post by: MangoMercury on September 19, 2010, 01:42:25 AM
...who, during cutscenes, moves the crown around to put it on people's heads?

It was something I did a lot during KQVI and VII, and I was so happy to see the crown return so I can continue to crown anybody and everybody!

Same.  To all of the above.  :)

That is so funny you should say that MangoMercury  :)
I've been playing King's Quest games since I was little girl, and I would always "crown" the characters.

And now, while playing Episode 2: Two Households, I started "crowning" the characters again without even thinking about it  :D

I've done this since I started playing KQ.

I think everybody does it. I did it since I started playing the series, starting with KQ6. I never even thought to bring it up. It was just one of those things that I did, but I never questioned it.  :-\

I can just imagine Alexander holding that skull in front of his face and making a silly monster voice...if only he had a cowardly sidekick like Cedric. ::)

Glad to know I'm not the only one!

Also, seeing big-head Graham totally gives me the incentive to play KQV that I needed - it's the only one of the first seven that I am yet to complete (just finished IV yesterday), and being able to give Graham a big bobblehead will make it worth it. 

As will being able to give Alexander a creepy skullface, Jafar!

I always do that, too (in TSL, as well)! ;D

My favourite one on TSL is putting it on top of the Arch Druid's leopard hood.  KING LEOPARD.

Oh my gosh! Yes I've always done that too! I also used to get mesmerised by the way that in KQ6, when the dialog portraits are showing up, the crown icon sits perfectly in the little gold triangle thing. Did anybody else do that?

YES. 

When I wasn't sitting it on someone's head.

What's this little gold triangle you're referring to?
Title: Re: So, am I the only one...
Post by: KatieHal on September 19, 2010, 09:14:54 AM
LOL! I would ALWAYS do that with the crown! Haha, never thought of it with the talk icon though. I think I might've unintentionally done the skull thing in KQ6 though :)

I believe this is the one Duke is referring to, but when the character portraits come up for dialogue on KQ6, the picture frames have gold triangles about halfway along each of the four sides.  I always balance it on the top one.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7m4ZrXGfG8 - for example.

Also, I LOVE the NBA Jam reference; that was one of my favourite games as a kid!

LOL!  Mango, I grew up on doing that!  My dad used to do it when we would play KQI, and it was something that just kind of stuck.  Haha!  I wish we had an applause emoticon. :D

Yup. I did that and I would stick the hourglass from KQV into the corners of the character portraits.
I never tried to crown anybody (though I will now!), but I always used the hand to pretend I was picking characters' noses. ^_^

Post by: crayauchtin on October 11, 2010, 12:01:22 PM
EVERY SINGLE TIME. ZOMG!

In fact, it is SO second nature to me now that I didn't realize I was doing it in TSL until just now. I was like "They kept the crown? Ohhhhhh yeahhhhhhh THAT'S why everyone has a crown when I look at them." :P
Title: Re: So, am I the only one...
Post by: MusicallyInspired on October 13, 2010, 06:36:56 PM
I did the crown-on-heads thing every time. In every KQ game with a crown loading icon.

I would put the crown on Mordack's head and imagine he killed Graham and became king....  :P

I tihnk everyone who has played the series at one point have done this! Also Jafar, I totally did that to Alexander when I was a kid  :rofl:

Post by: akkratte on March 20, 2011, 10:57:46 PM
Wow, this is too funny. I did it for sure in KQ6 and 7 (as well as putting the crown on the 'triangle' too. All the time!

I've done it with anything KQ game (original or remake) that has had a crown! ;D

I've been doing this ever since the crown became part of the games, way back when. I didn't even have to think about it, when playing The Silver Lining. It was essentially a reflex LOL

Oh man, I LOVE putting the crown on people! It's one of my favorite things as well. It's a reflex for me too lol.

Title: Re: So, am I the only one...
Post by: Buddy1991 on March 28, 2011, 01:58:03 PM
I do that, too :D And one of my friends used to play KQ7, and a few weeks ago we met for a huge KQ7-revival-day where we played the whole game at a stretch, and she kept doing that, too! I think every KQ Fan does that!
Title: Re: So, am I the only one...

Thats hilarious. I do that all the time too...good to know there are a few of us that do it lol. And yeah sometimes it was without even realizing it too haha.
Title: Re: So, am I the only one...
Post by: Deloria on March 29, 2011, 03:06:05 AM
I do this! :P But I'm obsessed with anything sparkly or crown-shaped and I'm not sure I would still do it if that weren't the case. ::)

I did this all the time,  I tried to do it in TSL but they kept moving >_< how are you supposed to wear my tiny crown if the camera keeps zooming in on you?
