Remember playing one of these games and having to kill bunnies. Lost
interest there. Poor bunnies.

Guess you haven't watched Monty Python's "Quest for the Holy Grail".
Bunnies *ARE* evil. (By the way, if you haven't watched it... GET IT
NOW!)

You missed on a great RPG there. I especially loved it because it was
the first game (that I remember playing) where the actual game changed
depending on your class, not only in how you did in combat, but in the
actual game. It's a pity games didn't follow on that. Nowadays the
difference between rogue, fighter and mage are just the graphics they
use to do the same 10 points of damage... how unimaginative.
The game kept a score of how you 'played'. Then let's say you find 5
ogres blocking entrance to an area. The fighter would score by just
killing the ogres. The mage could also kill the ogres but get no
score, but he would score if he used, say, an illusion a dragon to
scare them away and then walk by, and the rogue would scare by climbing
a nearby wall, walking on a tightrope above the ogres and getting
across.
Also, each class would open different areas of the game where the other
classes just couldn't get in (like fighter's hall, or the wizard's
academy, or the inside of houses to rob and the rogue's guild for
example). So you could play the game 3 times in different ways (in the
first game, then they added a 4th class)

Yes. There was a Quest for Glory compilation that had all of them
from 1 to 5. You might be able to find it on e-bay.

Well, there was QfG Anthology that had QfG1-4 (including
QfG1 VGA). Might be hard to find nowadays, check eBay.

I have also heard on the adventure newsgroup they might
be re-releasing all the Sierra 'Quest' games soon in bundle
packs, but I'll believe it when I see it. ;)

Yep, fans are also re-making QfG2 in full VGA glory here:
http://www.agdinteractive.com/

Not to be missed that one, if KQ2 VGA was any indication
of the quality to expect. ;)

actually if you played the rogue/thief, and spent your points right, you
could still play all 3 endings (for qfg 1 & 2), depending on how you
progress, and almost all the options where opened up to you.

I never ended up finishing the 3rd one, and the 4th one just looked bad.

It would be great if they remade them all for winxp, and redid all the
gfx, not 3d, just newer better ...
