Quest for Glory 1: So you want to be a hero? (from here on in – QFG1) is one of my all time favorite games. This is one of the great Sierra adventure games – where you take the role of a hero in a small town with a number of mysteries. It is up to you to explore and determine what is going. You get to choose the role of a warrior, wizard or thief – and the game plays slightly differently depending on your choice.
This was one of the first games I ever played which had the concept of building character attributes – and I have always enjoyed spending the time to build up my character statistics to ludicrous proportions.
QFG1 is also filled with many humorous lines. My favorite joke is that if you play the role of a thief you can command your character to ‘pick nose’. If your lock picking skill is under 50 you will stick your lock pick into your nose and kill yourself by accident. If your lock picking skill is over 50 you will successfully ‘open your nose’.
QFG1 runs perfectly under Virtual PC.
