    I am going to go out on a limb here and say... who cares? They had some great games back in the day, but I fail to see how reviving a completely shut down company would actually bring those days back. Everyone involved with it when it was successful is probably long moved onto other things (or even died... it has been a while).

    I think Phantasmagoria was the last PC game I bought or played until about 2005, It just totally put me off PC gaming. I did however enjoy one of the space quest games earlier in history.

    Oh and I have to agree with CPCMAX, I don't get the point in bringing back a dead company, one with a tarnished reputation at that !

    Outpost was always a favourite of mine. It was definitely not ready for release, but seemed to capture the space exploration vibe well - with a complete lack of instructions/guidance for added effect :p

    If the current batch of old-school "remakes" are anything to go by (read: Flashback, Syndicate) then I almost wish they'd just kinda leave Sierra dead-and-buried.

    I suppose asking for HD versions of Kings/Space/Police Quest in the same vein as Monkey Island I/II would just be asking too much, right?

    Have you tried the Lotus 49 in Assetto Corsa? If not I think you'll be impressed.

    Thanks Bokonist!! Why have I not heard of Assetto Corsa before??? The thing I liked most about GPL was the sound of the Ferrari 312.... dat noise!

    It's still an early access release, so there are still a few missing features, that said it's probably the best driving experience you can get on pc at the moment. I've lost many hours to it already.
