Keeping Sierra On-Line Alive

I understand cautious optimism and all, but I'm certainly excited. And I forget who said it (I didnt' hit "quote"), but yes, I suspect this forum will begin getting more traffic again soon..

Reminds me, I loved to play cards with Graham, Laura and Roger.adeyke wrote:The difference is the Mario and Mickey Mouse were actively used as mascots for their respective brands for many years (up until the present). Mario has appeared in around 200 games. If you watched children's entertainment or played Nintendo games, it's basically inevitable that you'd become familiar with Mickey Mouse or Mario, respectively.
King Graham isn't like that. Almost all exposure to Graham would come from playing his three games (or in the Crazy Nick's game, which is something only someone invested in the King's Quest franchise would see). He did have some other appearances (as easter eggs or in the Hoyle games), but there he was treated as just one Sierra character among many.
Graham's claim to fame is mainly a historical one. KQ1 is a significant game, and Graham starred in it. He just doesn't have any ongoing cultural relevance. It's like if Nintendo had stopped after Super Mario Bros. and had Disney had stopped after Steamboat Willie.
I never claimed to be the sharpest tool in the shed..Collector wrote:The "Location: Land of Hamlet" kinda gives it away.
