The first time my dad caught me playing KQ7, he took me to the store and bought me a whole carton of KQ7s, and sat there and made me play every last one of them.  Needless to say, I never played KQ7 again.

And it was actions like this that made KQ7 successful enough that they could go on to make Mask of Eternity.

Your metaphor is problematic because it suggests KQ7 is addictive.

Ha!  Touche.


Fix KQ7?  Nah.  Slash and burn.


*turns away* I think I shall just ignore that statement and silently disagree.


All I ask is for extremely gory death scenes for our obnoxious protagonists and all of the annoying side characters, complete with the option to re-watch them in slow motion. That by itself would be incentive to play it.

The difference is, nobody asked to see Connor's polygonal ass.

In my book, it's flawed, but not a completely terrible game.  Yes, there are a lot of things that could have been done better (like not having one cursor do everything).  And there were annoying bugs to have to work around that would kill you.  (Trying to sneak into the house while the dog barked, getting randomly killed by the boogey man if you didn't talk to Dr. Cadaver come to mind.)


At least it has a Disney-esque intro, everyone loves that! Right...Right?



I think Stika was being sarcastic, GrahamRocks.

...and if you actually liked that abomination of a musical number, then you are easily amused and your standards are too low. Period.

Hey now, be nice. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean others are inferior or something because they do. Everyone's got their own tastes.

For my part, I enjoy the Disney-esque cheesiness of the game. It's a flawed game, but it's got plenty to enjoy as well.

It's funny how you find you enjoy your life when you're happy to be alive.


I like to think that I still have a bit of childlike innocence left in me that doesn't really mind these things.


I've never actually played KQ7; I just watched a Let's Play.


Speaking of that intro, did they ever get that rip in space-time continuum in the pond fixed?

Even as a child, I would have declared that intro to be a pile of poo.
