Well, but the point is that it's not up to us to make that decision. Whether we like it or not, those games still rightfully belong to Vivendi, so it's up to them to 'use them', 'lose them' or - as they obviously prefer to do - simply 'keep them'. It simply won't do to complain about their (perhaps unwise) policy or use it as an excuse for warez. We have to respect their decision, even if we think it's damn foolish.

I have to obey thier decision, not respect it. Luckily for me I actually own all but the last two Space Quests and, since I live in Canada, I can download them all I like. I cannot say the same for the Gabriel Knights nor for the Laura Bow games unfortunately, and would still like to own a copy of the final two Space Quest games just to satisfy my OCD :tai: As for not complaining about their policy all I have to say is have you never heard the phrase "Squeeky wheel gets the grease," it's what corporations use to get their way all the time.

Oh, and Shifter got it right, though I'm not really sure about the confusion...

Edit: Keep in mind that warez will be relative to the country you live in... though I have no idea where frenchkiss is hosted.

Frenchkiss maybe in France. Just an obvious guess.

A mild warning people:
Frenchkiss hosts warez.This is the last time i will let such discussions continue.
Now i believe this is a good topic for SQ fans(although i am not one of them), so i will not edit any posts nor will i close the thread.
Continue with SQ, drop the frenchkiss discussion/linking!

Well, if it makes you feel any better, I was very disappointed by Space Quest 6. SQ5 was one of my favourites, but SQ6 just felt wrong, somehow. Maybe it was the different graphics. And I never did get the patch for that odd crash bug to work, so I never finished it.:(

I kinda heard that about the last one, which was part of the reason that I didn't buy it at the time... I figured I could always pick it up three or four years later, because Sierra would always sell its old quest games (they did keep them for sale for a really long time) ah well... I'll keep looking.

Well, you might want to try here. The price looks OK. You don't have that much time left, though.
