If you enjoyed them as much as I did the first time, I definitely think they're worth another go. Sure, the graphics are retro but a bunch of new adventure games are using the pixel art style anyway. I'm going to start working my way through the Space Quest Collection tonight and then I'll be moving on to King's Quest. You can also play the new King's Quest episodes... not as good as the originals but still enjoyable. Velocity 2X is also a great game if you just want to invest in the cheapest tier.

The King's Quest games are great for kids. The Space Quest games are rated Teen, a couple of raunchy jokes. You can view the ESRB ratings for every game by following the links too.

Yeah, I don't think those games would be fun 30+ years later, but YMMV.

Agree, I'm going to pass.
Point and Click has evolved quite a bit. My kids love the modern ones but they are mainly first person perspective games now.

I probably would have still bought the bundle if the Monkey Island games were included (my fav.)

Gabriel Knight 1, 2 and 3 are must plays. Caesar III and IV are great sim games.

The rest I wouldn't play again because of the terrible DOS-era interfaces.

Phantasmagoria is not very good in retrospect. It was popular because it was an FMV game back when everyone was getting a CD-ROM drive, but it's really poorly acted and hilariously bad. GK2 is a much better FMV game.

As for Phantasmagoria 2... it's really, really awful. What I recommend it watching Spoony's let's play of it, which is probably the best let's play ever. You will laugh to the point of tears:

Spoony's content was awesome. I miss the stuff he released years ago...

I had no idea there so many Sierra fans here! I grew up playing them and have many of their original boxed versions. If anyone is interested in donating or selling any of the games then please private message me!

I remember replaying these games after printing off 1000's of pages of game guides when dial up internet first arrived [AOL]. I had owned the police quest series[& SWAT]/king quest series for years, but rarely made it that far into them. Once I had the guides I played each one till it's finish.
They were amazing for their time, not sure if they would hold up now.

In for the nostalgia!

I had Caesar 3 [and 2] as well, loved those games! The game manuals used to be like 300 page novels.

When I saw that logo, the PC speaker sierra melody played in my mind haha. Gabriel Knight II is one of my top 5 games of all time. I even bought the novel back in the day.

Wasn't there a hotline that you could call for tips too? I swear I called it at least a couple of times. I wasn't printing out guides yet but I didn't have AOL either. My father opted for CompuServe instead.

Definitely stay away from the Phantasmagoria games if by kids you mean anyone younger than late teens, lol. Those games were pretty controversial at the time and were censored in some countries, banned in others.
