The One Thing That Stuck Out For Me About Doctor Brain...

Post by Tawmis » Thu Mar 29, 2018 3:09 pm

The One Thing That Stuck Out For Me About the Doctor Brain games...

All of Sierra's "main" games were very different in themes, and as a result - the way the game played, interacted, etc.

If you had to pick out ONE thing (good, or bad) - about the game, that left a lasting impression (and feel free to go into detail) - what would it be?

And I'd like it to be just ONE thing (because on some of our favorites, it's too easy to list all the things we enjoyed).

I want to focus on what made EACH game of the different titles (GK, LSL, PQ, KQ, etc) different than one another?

My experience with Doctor Brain is limited; I don't think I've ever completed any of them - but those puzzles and riddles were great. That's all I remember.

In the first Dr Brain you have a puzzle where you have to point out the constellations. Nightmare to me then, but now that I'm a stargazer...

In the second I lovehated the bookshelf puzzles. When I made my walkthrough I played through it infinite times to get all the categories and titles.

Do you think the first game's constellation puzzle influenced becoming a stargazer? Like did it make you look it up, learn it, and start you down that road?

It was an interest that was always sort of there, I'd been a Stephen Hawking fan since I was 13, but I never thought I could find the constellations until a good friend pointed out Orion and Ursa Major to me and explained how I could find them. Now I can find a number of constellations, especially if I use a star map.

People have looked at the constellations for a long time. Orion, Taurus and Gemini and the Pleiades can be found on the Lascaux cave paintings, which date back to 17,000 BC.
