5 Classic Sierra Games That the New Sierra Should Bring Back
King’s Quest is being resurrected by the recently reborn Sierra Games, but there are a lot of games that Sierra had a hand in that are worth bringing back.
With Activision announcing the return of Sierra Games at Gamescom earlier this week, we thought it would be a great opportunity to look over their back catalog and pick out our favorites. We’ve selected five games that we think Sierra should bring back now that they have a new lease on life.
5. Lords of the Realm
A strategy game set in medieval times, Lords of the Realm mixed real-time and turn-based play well enough to spawn two sequels. In each game, you were fighting for the right to become King. By the time the third game rolled around, it combined diplomacy, real-time strategy, and even the ability to control units in battle directly. It also include a fast-paced multiplayer component that let you take on your friends. Developer Impressions Games was criticized for the third game’s departure from the mechanics of the first two installments, but there’s no reason the series couldn’t mount a comeback today.
