I'd have to think about this...

The one that always makes me chuckle is the slit wrist in Space Quest 3 (in the junk area)...
And I think also in Space Quest 3, the Alien who "impregnates" you...
Colonel's Bequest - the shower scene, that's just a nice classic reference...
Any death in Space Quest with the orat...
The S&M woman in Leisure Suit Larry 2...
The after sequence of dying in the alley in Leisure Suit Larry 1...

And there's much more.

Actually, Tawm, the alien "impregnates" you in SQ2. This happens in Sludge Vohaul's asteroid. Sludge doesn't exist in SQ3.

Speaking of LSL1 - if you wait until the sun rises up, and Larry is still a virgin. *snicker* Actually, LSL1 is generally more forgiving than other Sierra games, particularly LSL2 and LSL3 (which have many more ways to die). For instance: try to get the Big Gulp from the 7-11 knockoff (the Stop 'N Gulp?) and then walk out without paying. :lol: Or any of the ways you can die at sea... or trying to get the bikini bottom from the bottom of the pool, and then swim back up without drowning. Or, all the various ways that the KGB agents can nab Larry if he doesn't disguise himself properly as a woman. (Having grown up in the 80s, I love the "evil KGB" humour. Can you tell?) :P But my favourite LSL2 death is the James Bond moment - i.e. slicing Larry in two, beginning at the groin (ouch!!), and then throwing the bits into an acid bath. Nasty, but evil. I love it. :twisted:

Any deaths in SQ2 or SQ3 are quite gruesome, but my favourites are getting caught by the carnivorous plant in SQ2 (because it's so easy to do - and so gruesome!), or getting squashed by the "Tasmanian Devil" beast in SQ2, or getting waxed by the floor waxer in SQ2, or getting caught by Ah-nold in SQ3 (he'll be back), or landing on the hot planet without thermal underwear (SQ3). But generally SQ2 and SQ3 are great for random, hilarious death. (Sorry Roger - I'm an evil bastard sometimes. Mwa ha ha.) :twisted:

QfG1... the night gaunts get ya (but we warned ya!). Trying to pick a fight with Brauggi. Being rude to Baba Yaga. Being rude to the Baron. Being rude to Erasmus. Being rude to anyone more powerful than you. *snerk*

QfG2... doing the wrong things in Iblis's cave (like trying to get the treasure). Not being careful as a thief. Retiring to WIT and letting Shapeir take care of itself. Iblis gets released. Falling off the rope as a thief and becoming road pizza. :twisted:

QfG3... not that many deaths, but many hilarious sights, like... the awful waffle walker. *snerk* We dig - earth pigs! Not a death, but too good to pass up. ;) Laurel and Hardy. As for deaths... hmm. I don't think I died in QfG3, ever (except in battles).

QfG4 is a very different proposition, obviously! Best of all is the banana slug. :twisted: But also Davy getting burned at the stake. Hugging the Rusalka (before helping her). Drowning in the swamp. Avoozl gets released. Getting zapped by Katrina or Ad Avis. etc.

QfG5... trying to swim without knowing how, or for too long. Cast levitate near the big windmill and levitate until it chops your head off. :P Die in Hades (possible, but rare if you use enough healing). Die at Minos's or at the Dragon's.

Can't think of any more. Hope these helps! ;)

Ha! Fatal indeed. :lol: Another one is wearing your uniform into the shower (not fatal, but funny). Or getting the towel from your locker, and then walking out of the locker room. :lol:

I like the death sequences, they are what make it an adventure, otherwise it'd just be an interactive story.

SQ1 - Tiny's hopping ship tied with "Do not touch" button
SQ2 - use the flippin' plunger on the wall!!
SQ3 - Arnold
SQ4 - Sea Slug meal
SQ5 - Microwaved ambassador
SQ6 - Invisible Monster

KQ1 - The only one that stands out to me is Beanstalk (but I hate that one)
KQ2 - Eaten by a lion
KQ3 - Failing most any spell
KQ4 - Marriage!
KQ5 - Wrongful transformation
KQ6 - Black Widow love

QfG1 - Antwerped!
QfG2 - Iblis Released
QfG3 - Hanging out with a certain apothecary...
QfG4 - Book in the Monestary
QfG5 - Banking at Night

PQ - Crashing in general

GotB 1 - Approaching the angry mob! - Technically not Sierra... but it was inspired by such.

What is this from? :shock:

Again, what is this? I don't think I've seen this before.

GK1:
Being strangled by the snake.
African zombies perform heart surgery on Gabe. :P

GK3:
The Gabe and the Pendulum - it's a scream!
Gabe becomes a knight at chess (and performs an illegal move) - down you go! :P

Conquest of Camelot, also source of the Best Sierra Easter Egg Ever, has you looking for the Grail - and the Grail will kill you if it doesn't like you.

In GK1, holding space bar as you leave for Africa in chapter 8 kills you.

My favorite from QFG3:
1. Use Tinderbox on Salim's Hooka in the Apothecary.
2. Use Hooka 3 times.
3. Game over!

I heard that it's possible to turn into the Awful Waffle Walker (i.e. become one). Is that true? I only ever saw it once.

Incidentally, it's possible to cast flame dart on the Awful Waffle Walker to toast him golden brown. :P

Is it possible to do this in any other way (i.e. what if you don't know magic)?
