Neat, but most of the conversations seem to be about finding and playing illegally downloaded versions. If I had a Reddit account I'd post and link them to GOG, but they probably wouldn't want to pay for their copies anyway.

Really? I went 4 months back just now and don't see people asking for illegal copies?

EDIT - 5 months back - I found this - and people replied with GoG.

And in that thread people also replied with answers ranging from playing online for free to downloading abandonware, neither of which is legal. Sure, a number of people did mention Steam and GOG, but there were a few who looked for other ways to get the game. Also, I saw some other threads that had suggested some less-than-legal means of acquiring the KQ games.

Beyond that... there's not much content on that Reddit. I guess I shouldn't really be surprised, though. The last Sierra-created KQ title was released 22 years ago, so I doubt there's a whole lot to be said.
