I did actually, and was impressed. I'm a big AGD fan, I don't think they've made a bad remake yet

Shadows of Darkness!

In spite of it being a buggy mess when first released, it had loads of great horror references and some really fantastic characters. The voice-acting in the CD-ROM version is also very good, and I think it's in the ISO cellar so everyone should go and play it RIGHT NOW. Also, read my review! (actually, maybe don't, I'm not sure how good the writing of the review was, it was a long time ago).

So for me it goes: QfG4, 1(EGA), 2, 3, 1(VGA) and a very distant last... 5.

Really don't like qfg5, can't bring myself to play it for very long at all (never finished it, unlike all the others).

I prefer the 2nd game, because I love the all 1001 nights ambience and the storyline. Although it's a bit linear and almost impossible to navigate without a map.

Trial by Fire without any doubt, the others look like crap in comparison.

I know I'm definitely in the minority here, but I voted for Dragon Fire. I love the soundtrack (best in the whole QFG series I think), and I love how it functioned as both a love-letter to QFG fans and a proper ending to the series. Great stuff. The more enhanced focus on combat never really bothered me, because as a thief I wasn't getting in fights anyway

I have a special bond with Quest for glory 1 (ega)
That was the first game for pc that my father bought me many years ago.
It was awesome and colorful for the time.

Also quest for glory 4 is absolutely wonderful.

This is my all time favorite series. Ever since I was eight years old and saw my friend's dad playing the original EGA version of "So you Want to be a Hero" I've been hooked. My favorite is between Part 1 and Part 4. I have to go with Shadows of Darkness even though Hero was my first love. The storyline was so much deeper in Shadows that it really sucked you in. Part five was a horrible steaming pile. It especially made me mad that in part 5 the character's choices within the game were so constrained, especially to who you could marry.

I like part 1, although I prefer the vga version because I'm not a big fan of the text parser (yes, I know QFG2 has a text parser, but the game is so great that I forgive that).
QFG2 remake by AGD Interactive is great, but they don't have the game clock config (where you can choose the speed the days last).
QFG3 looks a bit small, probably because it wasn't planned to be. The Coles said that part 2 was planned to jump to part 4, but they thought that the hero wasn't ready yet to face the Shadows of Darkness, so they made Part 3 in a hurry.
Part 4 is great with all his horror ambience, but the bugs at the time were awful.
And I still have to play part 5.
