When I think of Police Quest my initial, happiest memory is the ringing telephone sound effects in the office. Back in the day the coolest 'technology' for me wasn't the graphics, it was sound cards w/ midi.

Looking at the screenshots, I guess they redid PQ1 in VGA? I'd forgotten that. I remember the SQ and KQ 1 redos, but not PQ...

Yes, and oddly GOG used the original versions for their King's Quest and Space Quest releases, yet went with the remake here.

PQ3 was awesome... one of the first PC adventure games I ever played, and I loved it. The PC really needs another serious cop game, and I don't mean a stupid, kill-everyone shooter.

The ending to Police Quest 3: The Kindred was exciting and fast paced for an adventure game. Also because of the PQ games I bought an OEM copy of Blue Force in 1994 at a computer trade show for $5. Good times.

I was too young for PQ1 and 2 but I loved 3 and 4, 4 especially. I already have these in the XP collection they released a few years back though, no need for GOG versions.

Zork is a neat thing to see on GOG, but that is also before my time and I doubt I could play it. I would buy the three 90's graphical adventures though.

Hardest part of police quest (1) was trying to drive on the damn highway...holy shit, that was difficult.


Other than that, great memories. And hintbooks with yellow markers.
