I like the original better, but I more often play the remake because I can get through it more quickly. When I play QfG nowadays I'm usually aiming to play a certain point in the series, however I can't seem to allow myself to start midseries, so I always play through all of them.

My name is Tallin and I am a Rogue.

I preferred to play the remake cuz I didn't have to use a slowdown utility to actually play it. The original just BLAZED through me during the combat screens.

I'm not to sure that was your computer, in the EGA version combat was just brutal. The only battle that was easier in EGA was the weapons master, in VGA he suddenly learnt how to fight at warp speed.

The EGA version rocks. I played the original version ("Hero's quest") for ages with all character types. I never got any other QFG games until I bought the anthology. I tried playing the remake but I never actually finished it. I don't know why.

Every time I replay the series I use the original version for part 1. I'm always struggling when I use the remake. I could't even retrieve my daggers after killing the ogre with about 10 daggers confused.gif With the keyboard I always have better means of expressing myself, instead ofhaving to find out "where to click to perform a specific action" like retrieving the daggers from the ogre, or making the thief sign in the alley.

Beating the weapons master was also a pain due to his high speed, although the rest of the remake, strangely enough, ran perfectly fine. The original always runs perfect.

Also I like the silly looks of the hero in the EGA version much better (like "escaping" from the healer after returning her ring lol.gif )

The original is definetely better, in my opinion. The game runs smoothly, the fighting is easy and quick. The transition from I to II is great. No bugs whatsoever in this game ( None that I've noticed anyway ). I can get by just fine w/o the better graphics.
