Do you remember King's Quest VI?

I sure as hell do! This is one of the first computer games I ever played. It holds a special place in my heart because it was given to me by my first nerd friend way back in high school. We would spend forever on the phone working through the puzzles and generally being nerdy.


I lost contact with him after high school, but did see his wedding announcement in the local paper a few years ago, so hopefully he's doing well. I wish I had stayed friends with him. He was a wiz with computers and was the first person I knew who beat Super Mario World. Awww... memories...


I am currently watching a walk-through of King's Quest VI on Youtube:

Although, this version has narration and the one I played had text bubbles.

Just because I'm surfing a giant wave of nostalgia, tell me what your favorite old school computer games are in the comments.
