Incidentally, my brother wrote about Quest for Glory in his blog, as well as many of the games of that era, here.  (His experience playing games was much different from mine – more positive).  He also followed that post up with discussion of fan-made remakes of QFG, Quest for Infamy and Heroine’s Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok.

As always, thanks for listening!
