I know I'm dating myself here, but when I was a teenager, I was fascinated by Zork. I found it endlessly frustrating, but I couldn't stop playing and trying to work out just what the hell I was supposed to do next, desperately trying different words and combinations in the hope of blindly stumbling across a solution. (Thank God for the internet and FAQs!) So it is with great delight that I inform you that Good Old Games has just released The Zork Anthology. This includes Zork I, Zork II, Zork III, Beyond Zork, Zork Zero and Planetfall. All six titles for just $5.99. Of course, the file weighs in at a whopping 9MB, so make sure you have enough room on your hard drive!
If your tastes run to more realistic adventure fare instead of surreal, witty text adventures, they've also released Sierra's classic Police Quest series for $9.99. This includes Police Quest: In Pursuit of the Death Angel, Police Quest 2: The Vengeance, Police Quest 3: The Kindred, and Police Quest: Open Season. Can you keep the criminals off the streets?
I love what GOG is doing, but I just wish I had more time to play all the games that I've gotten from them! I'm still working my way through Syberia! (But seriously, how awesome is the title Police Quest 2: The Vengeance? It sounds like one of those fantastic direct-to-video 80s movies that I would just eat up with a spoon!)
