I was just going back through some of these posts, and saw your Return to Krondor game, with a map of the game world. When I purchased the game, no map came with it, and am wondering if anyone else has ever seen this map?

Not on par with Sierra - but a lot of that could be childhood nostalgia that prevent any company from coming close. (Just like I don't think any writer will ever top J.R.R. Tolkien for me, because it was THE HOBBIT that introduced me to the world of books and reading and the desire to write... and why, for example, the original STAR WARS will probably never be beat movie wise for me, because they hold a very nostalgic place for me)...
D2Legend wrote:oh i am sure it has something to do with being nostalgic, but it became that way because they were really good games. i played other stuff back then too but don't feel the same way about them. either way, i still feel sierra put out some of the best quality of games. i loved legend and ssi too, but after those all the other companies just put out a few games here and there i liked. but almost every sierra game was a winner to me.
