| Nostalgia Personified
As a child, the King's Quest games were what got me into "computer gaming". As such, they hold a tremendous nostalgic tug on me. So, when I heard that this new King's Quest was hitting the PS4, I knew I would be purchasing it. I went whole-hog and bought the entire collection, and overall I'm glad I did, as despite some hiccups along the way it was a fun trip back down memory lane.

I'm not going to review all the Chapters individually here, but suffice it to say that some are better than others. For example, the second-to-last Chapter (devoted to a whole bunch of ice puzzles) gets a bit tedious, while the Chapter in the dungeon with the Goblins is probably the best.

Anyway, what makes this new King's Quest a success is that the "Odd Gentleman" (production company) really understand the nostalgia involved, as there is something in each chapter that hearkens back to the old games. Now, that being said, these Chapters aren't just re-treads of the classics, but rather new adventures of Graham and the Royal Family of Daventry. The game creators just do a really good job of incorporating storyline elements that players of the original games will remember.

About the only reason I can't give this collection higher marks stems from personal reasons: I just don't have as much time to devote to video games as I did in childhood. As a result, I found myself "cheating" here from time to time, as this is a game that does involve some puzzling. None of it is extremely difficult, but I guess I just don't have the patience I once did.

Overall, though, I enjoyed my experience playing the King's Quest Complete Collection, primarily for the nostalgic ability to run around once again as King Graham! It felt good to be beneath the adventurer's cap once again.
