Space Quest 1-3 on GOG.com

GOG.com now offers sales of Space Quest 1+2+3 to go along with their previous DRM-free reissue of Space Quest 4+5+6, offering even more of Sierra's classic space adventures. Word is: "The first two installments require text input to interact with the environment, but Space Quest 3 is of the more modern point-and-click variety. Despite the lack of full-talkie voiceovers, you'll surely recognize the witty, sarcastic humor and cunning sci-fi references you know and love from the later installments."

I've played 1-5, wish I could just get 6. There's not much re-play value in these.

SQ1 was the first pc game i bought... in glorious EGA

and yes the text parser games were WAY better than the icon based games

my favorite sierra games were probly heros quest 1 + 2 tho.. what with the rpg stats you could build up and so on - unfortunately the combat in each of them was totally crap - you could win 99% of fights by holding down the "up" button.. beat a dragon with a dagger in the 1st one.. kinda wacky

It was actually fun typing what to do, I do miss it.

I always preferred typing into the command parser over playing the point and click versions.

the graphics in 6 look like crap. Stylistic direction, or massive budget cut?

I want to say the Two Guys had left Sierra at that point, but I could be wrong. That might explain it...

Looks like they left before the last 2 games:

I loved these games when I was a kid. I think my introduction into the series was a actually a multi pack that contained 1-3, with the first one being a remake. I never got to play 5&6, though I've got to say, the graphics in 6 look like crap. Stylistic direction, or massive budget cut?

For purists:

Looks like (based on the screen shots) this includes the original version of SQ1, and not the VGA remake from a few years later.

Not sure which version the Steam bundle included.

But they are classics.

The "Steam version" is just the retail collection from a few years ago which I know contains the remakes, not the originals, so this may well be the only way to currently buy the original versions.
