What does it say about my experience with PC gaming that some of my more vivid memories involve the first-person-shooter-cum-advertisement Chex Quest? Probably more than I should admit to on this blog! But as kid whose Gateway ran the pack-in flight simulators at an insanely sluggish rate, a video game that came free with a box of cereal was a welcome diversion. Plus, it was free of all that video game violence that was destroying youth at the time. Instead you were a Buzz Lightyear encased in breakfast food and zapped mucous. Which is more reasonable.
Apparently I’m not too alone in my fond memories of the game, as it seems someone liked it enough to create their own sequel. Seriously. I mean, I know the modding community is big, but Chex Quest? And this is from a board of Chex Quest enthusiasts? I don’t even know what to say.
You’d better believe this is getting downloaded on the double. Impressions might be forthcoming. You’re all on the edge of your seat, I’m sure.
