Arrighty, so I see a couple of other "Hi, I'm new and I'm an alcoholic." threads here so I figure I'll throw my hat into the ring as well. :)

Hello, I'm new to the forum, I don't bite (much) and I'm generally friendly (even when I'm biting), I was raised on Sierra games, playing them on my wicked bad Tandy1000SL.

I'm 28 years old, married (I married my gamer girl), and live in South Carolina USA.

I think it's a shame that Sierra is effectively "No More", I felt a twinge deep in my heart when Ken Williams sold the company to Cendant, even though he did get an ungodly sum of cash for it, I read a thing he said back when he sold the company about Adventure Games, or at least the market for them being dead, which I can't say I agree with at all.

I thought it was particularly sad because Sierra was, at least from what I understood, a family and friends operation... You knew the people making the games, Ken and Roberta Williams, Al Lowe, Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe, Jim Walls... we knew their names, and I honestly believe they (and the other people behind the scenes) poured their hearts into making those games.

Most of the gaming that I do on the PC is retro gaming, playing old copies of Space Quest, Full Throttle, Monkeys Island etc. So you can imagine how pleased I was to find vintage-sierra.com. :) I dig that there actually old-school gamers, and new people still enjoying these games for their first go-around.

Oh, and speaking of Space Quest, it's my favorite Sierra series, followed closely by Leisure Suit Larry, Police Quest, Laura Bow, and Manhunter, in that particular order. :)

Never got into King's Quest, well I should say rather, that I haven't *yet*...

Ohm, and that's about it. :) Hi.

Hey there! Allow me to be the first to welcome you to these forums :) . It's always great to see new faces (or new posters :lol: !)
I see that you are also a Space Quest fan, if you have some time drop by at

Welcome and be happy!

You forgot the two greatest names in Sierra: Lori Ann Cole & Cory Cole ---but then could be you haven't play Sierra's greatest series The Quest for Glory! :lol:


Happy Questing!
