Good Old Games is having a ‘winter’ sale, and kicked the whole thing off with an amazing Lucasarts bundle, featuring some of the best adventure games ever made.
Now they’re doing the same thing with old-school Sierra adventure games.
Look, I’m going to level with you here: in the great adventure game rivalry that was Sierra vs Lucasarts, I was always a Lucasarts guy. Therefore I think this sale just doesn’t top the sheer level of amazing that the Lucasarts bundle brought to the table.
It does a decent job of trying though…
— King’s Quest 1-9
— Quest For Glory 1-5
— Quest For Infamy
Really, for a sale like this to compete with the Lucasarts bundle, it needed more Space Quest and it needed a pinch of Police Quest. Still, well worth investigating.
This sale continues to be great. There’s also a Bullfrog sale running right now, which will delight those of us who were Amiga owners in a past life. That one features Theme Park, Theme Hospital, Populous, Syndicate and much more. Really cool sale.
On the front page there are a host of good deals, although many will look familiar. It’s sort of a roll call for games that are always on sale — like Hotline Miami, VVVVVV, Mark of the Ninja, Don’t Starve, etc. I’m almost surprised I didn’t see Braid and Super Meat Boy there.
Still you’ll probably find something you don’t already own on there. Have at it!
