QuoteTrue, it was pretty advanced for its time but that also brought its own set of problems. I couldn't even play it for several years as I didn't have a computer that could handle it, and even when I did later I still had to set things up pretty low and the load/unload times were atrocious.
QuotePersonally I like Doom, Hexen, etc. quite a bit better than MoE (proof in the pudding is that I still play those from time to time, I have only ever played all the way through MoE twice in my life). I feel like the type of secrets and bonuses those games give actually fit the overall gameplay than MoE's "Congratulations on finally finding that object, now spend half an hour backtracking to use it where it belongs."
QuoteI actually still even have a fully functional Atari with about 3 dozen games and many of them are still plenty of fun (Pitfall on a 60 inch Plasma HDTV, woot!), and I have a number of original NES and SNES games that I think are better than many "modern" game entries. Earthbound is one of my very favorite RPG's ever, and Solomon's Key from NES has always been a favorite puzzler in my book.
QuoteI just don't think that Mask of Eternity has aged as well as a lot of other games from back then. Possibly because I haven't had anywhere near as much trouble getting any other classic game running on a modern machine as I have Mask, and now that I have been able to get it running it's still the glitchiest game on my system
QuoteIn the end, I'll say this: do you seem teams of talented artists, writers and programmers making new King's Quest games in the style of MOE? Because I haven't...
QuoteI only played the Mask of Eternity once. I suppose it was an ok game. I got used to the fighting, but I reallywanted to find out what happened to graham and family. There fore I did not care for connor.I hated the loading times as well, and I thought the ending was pathetic.
QuoteRoberta apparently chose Connor, because she felt she couldn't do anything more with the Royal Family, King Graham was getting too old and Alexander was living in the Land of the Green Isles. Roberta also has said; "The only character from previous King's Quests will be a couple of cameo appearances by King Graham. I felt that it was time to feature a new character to the saga of King's Quest as long as we were updating the whole look and feel of the series." Roberta has stated that the general idea of the story remained the same throughout the various phases, but that she never really changed her ideas very much (though some material may have been reduced). Were there any other storylines thought about before the current one? Describe a few of them. Not really. The basic idea of a golden, all-powerful, sacred "mask" having something to do with a terrible crisis in the land was pretty much the essence of the story from the very beginning. And having a "normal guy" who lives in the kingdom of Daventry be the one to fix this problem was also part of the storyline. Now, as to exactly who he was, and what exactly
