YMMV: King's Quest I: Quest For The Crown

  • Awesome Music: Ken Allen's soundtrack for the remake really adds to the mood of the game.
  • Seinfeld Is Unfunny: King's Quest is very important for the history of gaming; however, it's too dated and frustrating for some to enjoy it at face value today. The Fan Remake makes it much more accessible.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The general reaction to the 1990 remake among gamers and the tech press.
  • Vindicated by History: The official remake is much better regarded these days, and served as the basis for the well-received fan remake. Video game remakes are par for the course now, but in 1990, the idea seemed sacrilegious and was compared to the controversial process of "colorizing" old films.
  • Why We Can't Have Nice Things: If not for the massive backlash above, we would have gotten official remakes of 2, 3 and 4.
