I've beaten every game in the Space Quest series, twice! I absolutely love the SQ series. It's sad that the hostile takeover killed the genre. My favorites are the VGA games. I wish they could at least release Space Quest VII: the Return to Roman Numerals.

Space Quest was one of the games that got me into gaming. And writing. They were my favorite adventure games at the time...to heck with all you Monkey Island heads.

They were all great, though I do remember being disappointed somewhat by 6. Can't complain too much, though. Sierra adventure games were some of the best things ever.

Not a Police quester or a Jet setter? Shame on you.

@orlick: that would be The Brothers Chaps, creators of Homestar Runner (homestarruner.com).

I tried Police Quest once. All I remember is being able to ride two motorcycles.

I also played Torin's Passage, which had a built in hint system (which I abused, LOL). I got pretty far in The Dig, but got stuck after Brink disappeared. I've beaten KQ V-VII more than once, and KQ1 once. I also played Freddy Pharkas until I got to the snails.
