This list was very hard to choose from...I would like to see more than three off this list 're-made'...no de-makes here. On the topic of de-makes, I think it is a waste of time; unless we are talking about re-making a Sierra VGA re-make then we can jump on the topic of re-doing 'Space Quest 1 VGA'
Anyhow, the three classics I chose; of course 'King's Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella', 'The Colonel's Bequest' and 'Gold Rush' a very very overlooked gem of a classic Sierra adventure. Not sure why not many of you are picking 'Gold Rush', whenever I think of playing that classic it warms my senses. In my opinion one of Sierra's most intriguing adventure titles based on real life events in history. I would absolutely love to see it re-made in VGA goodness...
However, nothing tops the list as much as 'King's Quest IV'; I remember impatiently waiting for KQIV back in the late 80's...only to be sorely disappointed when it was delayed for over a year...as Sierra was developing the AGI & SCI version simultaneously. When it was finally released I still remember how excited I was, and of all the hours that it consumed of my life.
There is something about 'The Colonel's Bequest' that I can't quite put my finger on, which evokes a sense of wonderment within me when I play it. I don't know whether it is the eeriness of the setting/atmosphere, or the time period that it is set in, or maybe its characters...maybe that big spooky house...anyways it is, in my opinion, definitely one of Sierraâ€™s greats that is deserving of a make-over.
One thing I did notice with this list, and it probably would have replaced my â€˜Gold Rushâ€™ selection had it been included...no it would have replaced my â€˜Gold Rushâ€™ selection for sure, is the absence of â€˜Space Quest II: Vohaulâ€™s Revengeâ€™...yes I know that Infamous Adventures is in the process of redoing this classic as I type this...however based on their past re-makes I believe that AGDI would do a much better job at re-making this prestigious adventure classic.
