(Favourite Sierra series)

With all the games Sierra has made what Sierra series is your favourite. My favourite is the Space Quest series and my favourite Space Quest game is Space Quest IV.

Re: ARRGH! *tears his hair out, tears his eyes out, collapses*

My favourite version of office was office 97. My favourite word processor is the mac version of wordperfect 3.5. That version was released in 1995. It's old but it's the best.

A forum for the hoyle games

I have found the publishers site for the hoyle series. The reason it's important is because the hoyle games still have their own site but the sierra site is completely down and directs you to activision. http://www.encoreusa.com/ there's support for older hoyle games like hoyle card 2004 http://supp...

Re: Things That Annoy You!

I hate how on petty much every typing adventure game you have to say stuff pretty much specific to what the game wants. Police Quest 2 is terriable for that. Space quest 2 is actually surprsingly one of the better adventure games on that. Space quest 3 is a little bad but generally good at it. Most ...

very old windows game goes too quick

Prairie dog 97 for windows runs a lot faster than it should. I thought about using cpu killer but really I don't want to slow down the computer itself, I just want to slow down the program. Moslo is good but it is for dos games and the free version does not work on anything quicker than 700 mhz. Any...

another problem

I decided to start the police quest games over again and I am actually able to beat police quest 1vga now with a later DOSBox version. I decided as there is not enough problem I wouldn't use the DOSBox patch with space quest just before I was about to use it. I want to get the launcher back but I ha...

Re: Crazy Christmas Shoppers (warning - rant ahead!)

Most stores are open on the 24th but many choose to close. Most stores aren't open on the 26th but many choose to open. I'm in Greater Sudbury and over here stores aren't allowed to open on the 26. Some gas stations and some other stores do open though. Technically black friday isn't around in Canad...

Re: anyone remember detroit

It was very hard and you had to succesfully manage a car company but it was my favourite impression game. You can't get sound on newer computers though.

Re: Crazy Christmas Shoppers (warning - rant ahead!)

Black Friday is no where near as big as it is in the US. There was a lot of people in the morning but nothing too crazy. It doesn't get really crazy till mid december. Going to Walmart in mid-late december is just the absolute most insane thing to do. It isn't a violent mob but really Walmart is oft...

anyone remember detroit

Detroit was a managerial car game by Impression and published by sierra in 1993. The depth that was in the game was impressive. You had to financially keep your car company in working order. It had so much strategy and I feel it was quite possibly the best game from impression but really I don't see...

Re: Most overrated and underrated games

Another under rated game besides strike base is 3d rc racers by dynamix. I found that to be such a fun fast paced racing title. Power ups and great track layouts and great cars made a great game. I used to play that game for hours and for some reason find it to be my favourite game from the sierra f...

vu games site no longer works

VU and the sierra sites are no longer active and just go to the activision site. Why does activision own sierra in the 1st place. Activision will most likely just get rid of sierra eventually. I couldn't even find pages for the hoyle games on the horriable activision layout.

Re: SierraVault November update

Wow great site but it may be annoying but my only complaint is that most of the hoyle games don't have a year on them and they aren't in chronical order. Hoyle classic card games was the fourth hoyle game if that helps a little. It was also the last hoyle game to have characters from other sierra ga...

Re: Most overrated and underrated games

Over rated: Early Lucus Arts adventure games I found the interfaces to be very distracting and that's what ruined the experiance for the games. Loom was the 1st scumm game with a good interface. The interfaces they used after that were all good except for day of the tenticle which used the worst luc...
