Since Steam/Origin/uPlay, I dont tend to buy many "boxed" games anymore..... but still have these sitting in the cupboard, some I have on Steam etc.

I brought the PQ/SQ collections on steam the other day just for nostalgia.. I think I lasted about 2 minutes in each game, I really don't remember the graphics being that horrific.

 

Spent many hours on them years ago.

Have sold all my retro consoles but I have many Atari ST and circa 2000 PC boxed games still hanging around.

 

My favourite is Their Finest Hour, old WWII flight sim, the manual for that was a great read. RIP great game manuals

Police quest 1 though.....Police quest 2 was crap, the top down driving was the best part of PQ1.

Police quest and hero quest were my fav, then Kings Quest.

 

Wish they made decent point and click adventures nowadays,

Nothing in my closest...because they're all in boxes in the garage.  I'll pull them out when I get home and take a couple photos, but there are a lot :p
