My Father's Obsessions

For whatever reasons, my dad doesn't play a lot of games, but when he does, he plays them to the point of obsession, claiming that he's the best in the world at some games. For the most part, this turns me off to playing these games, but in some cases like Tetris Attack, it just further incites me to be that much better at the game.

Ah, King's Quest V.

@ahoodedfigure: Yes. This was the only title in the King's Quest series that I managed to like.

@JackiJinx: I thought it was beautiful when I first saw it.  It was one of the first fully VGA games I'd ever seen back in the day and I marveled at all the detail.  You get to see a lot of interesting locations, too.
 
Although in hindsight, I think some of those puzzles are downright cruel...
 
I never got into the sequel as much, and I don't think I even played the older ones.  Space Quest got more mileage in my family, at least as far as Sierra adventures go.
