14 years old, but still fun to play.

The Good

There is something about a command line interface that is strangely enticing. For one, this is the game that shot my typing skills from 15 wpm to 50 wpm. I don't fully understand what so appeals to me about this game, but it and QFG 2 definitely had something the later sequels didn't. I am also quite fond of the character import feature through the rest of the sequels. Too bad it never caught on with mainstream rpg gaming.

The Bad

Despite ancient graphics, I can't think of anything I didn't like about this game.

The Bottom Line

A true classic -- definitely check this out if you enjoy old games.
