By Ryan | On Tuesday, October 11th, 2011 - No Comments »

If you grew up in the eighties and nineties, Sierra games like Police Quest, Space Quest and Leisure Suit Larry were a staple part of any 286/386 PC owner’s gaming diet. My favourite, by far, was always good ol’ Larry. The crappy graphics, cheesy catchy Soundblaster tunes, naughty jokes and tons of adventure waiting around every corner – nothing could beat it. And funnily. Read more...
