Fun little read on New Sierra

I thought it was a fun read, and easy to relate to. The number of times I died in those original Sierra games is...probably not a good idea to mention.

Good article. I can't recall how many times I died in Sierra games... probably more than I can count... ;)

Yeah, every time I see something about my old Sierra obsession, I do one of those point-and-noise things from Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Ah, Sierra! They were pretty much the only games I played for a number of years. I have to admit I'm suprised at how much I miss them at times. It's rare that I anticipate new games now as much as I did their games then. Of course life in general was much simpler back then, so perhaps it was easier to place more importance on them.

Thanks for the link, Tin! Good to see you again. :)
