SamnMax and Indy are great games but don’t hold againts GKs. I haven’t played Primordia and it’s been ages since I played MI so I’m not comfortable voting it against aWadjet Eye game that I will probably love a lot. Blackwell Epiphany is one the best games ever so that one I will vote even though I have only briefly tried KQ decades ago.

1.  GK2
2.  GK1
3.  Haven’t played Primordia
4.  Haven’t played Blackwell Epiphany, and with all the good things I’ve heard about it I’m not sure which way I’d vote if I had.  Even with all the respect I have for KQ6.

M1: Sam & Max Hit the Road - I’ll just repeat what I said in the other bracket, it was hard to choose, but in the end I went with the game that left stronger impression on me, when I look on them from this distance

M2: Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis - This was much easier, gameplay and storywise Indy is miles ahead of Gabe. Tremendous replay value, alternate solutions to numerous puzzles and for the ... sake it would be better than at least 2 movies from the franchise, while GK would probably fare similar to The Serpent and the Rainbow and Angel Heart

M3: The Secret of Monkey Island - Simply no contest here, probably the most one-sided duel in this whole round

M4: King’s Quest VI - Similar to the former, though it’s a little closer this time, but I still think a way better game got eliminated in the previous round (The Last Express)

1 - Sam & Max
2 - Fate of Atlantis
3 - Aurgh!!!  Brain hurts!!!  Well… I love both games, but putting aside the overwhelming sense of nostalgia with TSOMI, I’m actually going to go with Primoria here.  Or am I?  Gah…
Okay… Primordia.  By a whisker.
4 - Er… hmm… not sure, both were good though not (to me) great, probably KQVI.

Oh well, this wasn’t so hard Grin But dangit, next round the GKs are against each other Meh

1) Gabriel Knight 2. I’m playing Sam & Max right now, and I like it quite a bit, but I have to admit it’s not as fun to play or funny as I had expected and people have made it sound. And the gameplay is quite iffy, with a lot of sort of forced puzzles. Gabriel Knight 2, on the other hand - despite the sometimes silly acting, to me it’s #2 only to Gabriel Knight 3. Gameplay flows so well, story is great, and like all the best Jane Jensen games, it has a natural feel to it that doesn’t make it feel gamey.
2) Gabriel Knight 1. Well, My third favorite game, after GK3 and 2 Wink Though here Grim Fandango is also worthy contender, but luckily at this point I don’t need to make that distintion Tongue
3) Secret of Monkey Island. Well, you know, Monkey Island.
4) No vote, haven’t played either (though woot for a third Jane Jensen game on this group Grin)

1 - Sam and Max Hit the Road - I’m an absolute sucker for FMV, but GK is probably my least favourite Sierra series, and I just got so much happiness and enjoyment out of Sam and Max and it is a game I have been able to play and enjoy with people that don’t play video games, or these types of games.

2 - Fate of Atlantis - Again, the GK games just never really did it for me, and Fate of Atlantis was such an amazing game.

3 - Secret of Monkey Island - My favourite Monkey Island game, one of my favourite adventures, and just such a perfect game. The graphics are beautiful and an absolute pleasure to look at, unlike Primordia - possibly my least favourite Wadjet Eye game - where the colours make the game near unplayable to me.

4 - Blackwell Epiphany - This game is an absolute masterpiece and another example of a perfect adventure game. Kings Quest VI is great, but I can’t put it ahead of Blackwell.

So, after complaining about the lack of Sierra representation previously… I’ve just voted against three Sierra games Smile
