Do you want to be a hero? The Quest for Glory series by Sierra was a classic adventure/role-playing series that fans world wide remember fondly. TheBigJB (Ex-Sierra employee) talks about all five games in the series and which ones are his favorite, and which are not.

 

Anybody else remember this Sierra series fondly?

Honestly, I never played it. I just got into IBM PC gaming around 1991 or so and I just played what was given to me (eye patch firmly in place) or whatever was in the bargain bin at the time. Only Sierra games I had at the time were Police Quest and Leisure Suit Larry. When I upgraded from an 8088 10 MHz to a 486 SX 25 my world opened up so I tried a lot of cheap/clearanced games which most were not Sierra, going with the Kyrandia series, Sam and Max and the Access Software (Mean Streets, some other point and click I can't think of) for my adventure fix. Last Sierra adventure game I played was Phantasmagoria.

 

In my neck of the woods I never saw those titles and I worked computer retail at a couple places from 1993 until about 1997.

I was talking about this with my wife (who I met while working at Sierra) and the QfG series was definitely a bit of a Hidden Gem at Sierra. For whatever reason they were never as popular as the King's Quest/Space Quest/Gabriel Knight games...and it must be because of the RPG elements that were included....But that's what made them great! :)
