QFG 1 EGA, of course the copy I have is the Original Original Hero's Quest before they had to change the name!

Countless hours playing that game killing goblins and brigands.

Part I VGA, no contest.

I mean... the one that started it all, revamped as a point-and-click game with improved graphics and sound.

Next poll please!

I think QFG1 is the most well-rounded game, but I can't choose between EGA and VGA, so I'll say QFG4. I don't like the combat system in it, but everything else was excellent. I'd like Dragon Fire a lot more if it weren't for the combat, too.

QFGI EGA, I like the fighting style best in QFGII, but I like the setting in Spielburg better. I still haven't warmed up to the point and clicks though.

First time poster here.

They are all great games so it is a tough choice. Hero's Quest wins because of the heavy dose of nostalgia I get seeing those EGA graphics along with using the text parser and the countless amounts of hours playing it. Not an important point but the box art on Hero's Quest is so much better than Quest for Glory!

Somewhere around twenty 5 1/4" floppy disks were swapped between a low density dual-drive IBM AT setup. Please insert disk 18. Please insert disk 17. Next screen, move the character north. Please insert disk 14. Please insert disk 3. Please insert disk 14. Next screen. But you dealt with it! The day that IBM PS/2 Model 30 286 with a big 20MB hard drive came into the household was a great day indeed.

Quest for Glory has been my favorite series throughout all the games i have played so far. They had everything. Adventuring, RPG elements, smart puzzles, a storyline and especially the importing of your hero to the next part of the series really made you go and play the previous game with ALL the hero types and maximizing the stats, just so you had an slightly advantage with the new game.

I distinctly remember the time i had made in QfG I EGA a super thief (with fighter and magic elements) and then my frustration as the QfG 2 recognized him as a mage!

However i have to say that QfG 3 was my all time favorite. First QfG without a parser. Fantastic graphics (for the time), exceptional storyline, nice riddles. I really enjoyed it.

Row of preference: 3 - 2 - 1 - 4 - 5.

4 was buggy at best and 5 was not too QfG equivalent!

I think i still have somewhere the CD that was published with all the QfG without 5.

Love QfG!

It's a close shave, but QFG1, VGA has gotta be my top favorite. It was my first taste of the QFG series, even though QFG3 was the first one I actually got to play through. So You Want To Be A Hero? had many little quests that eventually brought everything together in the end and I really enjoyed that. I also have a fondness for beginnings in stories...

QFG4, however, WAS simply amazing--the dark and serious and sometimes even deeply emotional tones in that storyline were simply amazing, while at the same time it kept its trademark humor with many silly or witty moments. In the end, though, it's bugginess was it's ruin, and I have to place QFG1 at the top.
