Awesome: King's Quest
Specific games:
  • Moment of Awesome meets Awesome Moment of Crowning in King's Quest I: Quest For The Crown.
  • The AGD Interactive Remake of King's Quest II: Romancing The Throne outdid themselves with the Air Gem tests. In order to get the magical gem, the Cloud Spirit subjects Graham to relive an incident in his childhood, starting things on a lighter note. Then, it takes a spectacularly nasty turn penciling in a "missing scene" from King's Quest III: To Heir Is Human where The Father, head of the Black Cloak, puts The Final Temptation in front of Graham at his bleakest hour, and plays it for all the gut-wrenching power it deserves. The third test centers around the controversial Mask of Eternity, as an aged Graham can choose to make the game's protagonist his heir — as Alexander rules the Green Isles, and Rosella is implied to have moved to Etheria with Edgar. Quest Studios (the composers) also use Awesome Music on these scenes, weaving in the Leitmotifs of King's Quest III and King's Quest: Mask of Eternity.
    • AGD also pulls several Moments of Awesome in their game ending. The wedding is not as simple as it was in the original game, and more an homage to the one depicted in KQ6. You also get the Friendly Neighborhood Vampire Count Caldaur reclaiming his rule over Kolyma and officiating, cameos from everyone (including the Dev team and THE GODDAMN BATMAN!), AND a wicked sword brawl to expose and banish your Evil Chancellor — but not before he sets up a curse that explains the other games.
  • The sorcerer duel between Graham and Mordak in King's Quest V: Absence Makes The Heart Go Yonder!. It's impressive, but the fact that Graham is no wizard (that's his son's department) just makes the fact that he pulled it off even cooler.
