"...yes, a reboot is on its way..."

My favourite is King's Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow. I adore this game so very much! It's got everything that makes a game a masterpiece: a compelling story, memorable characters, magical soundtrack, gorgeous graphics and fantastic replay value. I can play KQ6 again and again and again!

While waiting for the upcoming reboot, I highly recommend getting the King's Quest Collection on Steam or GOG, and then download this patch to make the games run better; like updating the DOS version of KQ1 to SCI, the addition of the enhanced/Windows version of KQ6 with HiRes character portraits and GUI, and more.

ERROR: I'm not sure why this post is in the Fire Flower forum. I chose the King's Quest (Franchise) twice and it won't work. Any ideas how to fix this?

I haven't played all of them, but Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow is that one that stands out in my head.

I've played the first one and V. The first one was an amazing piece of computer wizardry when it happened. V sucks balls.

Honestly, KQ6 is the only game I ever played in the series. I did try 5 and 7 but never got far; the art style and UI in 7 threw me off big time. I plan to play ALL King's Quest games in the future.
