Sierra is spash screen that come to mind way before LucasArt... LucasArt is burn in my memory because it was the first game (X-Wing) that I saw on a 2X CD-Rom computer in a store... But Sierra is the compagny that made most of the adventure game I played.
This exactly. X-Wing was a great game (how many 3.5" floppies did it have?). I was also uber impressed by the cut scenes with voiced dialog. And then to hear the soundtrack (with gameplay-matched music) on my friend's PC with wavetable synth... oh, it was glorious! And yet, when I pull out DOSBox, I'm not playing X-Wing (who wants to calibrate an old analog joystick?). I'm playing any of the Sierra quest-series games, or Leisure Suit Larry. (Plug for LSL: Reloaded! I can't wait!)
