Own three of history's greatest games for only $13... total!

Are you prejudiced against point-and-click adventures? Do you often wonder why folks in the '80s and early '90s even bothered playing such ugly and archaic nonsense? Are you confident that today's shooters and quick-time events are that much better than yesterday's puzzles and inventories?

This weekend is the perfect time to put those smug opinions to the test. Between now and Monday at midnight, Good Old Games is selling the entire Gabriel Knight trilogy – Sins of the Fathers, The Beast Within and Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned – for less than $13 together.

If you're a fan of GamesRadar's podcast, TalkRadar, you already know how I feel about the series. For those who have never heard of this "Gabriel Knight," trust me when I say that these are a few of the best adventures ever created, and some of the most professional and adult storytelling ever produced in any genre. Period.

Don't believe me? Still doubt you could enjoy a point-and-click, inventory-combining puzzler that requires you to read instead of button mash? Download the trilogy, play a couple hours and prove me wrong.

Above: Yes, this is what the first one looks like. It's still prettier than a few Wii games I could name...

    Sorry, Bearhat. I only ever wanted the first, and I paid full GOG price for it.
  • MattK - May 22, 2010 8:43 p.m.

    Definitely worth the price. If I didn't already own all three and the ability to play them, I'd buy them again. They're that good. Hell, Sins of the Fathers I'd pay that price for.

    Wait, I thought history's greatest games were Mutant League Football, Double Dragon II and Stranglehold.
  • iJizzLots - May 22, 2010 5:19 p.m.

    This article warmed my heart
  • SillyPigeon - May 22, 2010 4:54 p.m.

    Good price. I love the old point and click games. I'll get'em to see if CHARLIE! is right to be so obsessed by them
  • IChooseUAntistaMON - May 22, 2010 12:41 p.m.

    @Frog Maybe because you don't have down syndrome of course Charlie wrote it who else would write about gabriel night
  • Rhymenocerous - May 22, 2010 10:26 a.m.

    "Dammit Gracie! Can't even handle a goddamn Fuckin' diagram!"
  • Bawheidbob - May 22, 2010 5:05 a.m.

    I have never heard of these games yet i loved my point and click adventures thanks for sharing this information im going to get them for sure
  • allthegoodnameswheretaken - May 22, 2010 5:01 a.m.

    I sent you the link to that =)
  • smallberry - May 22, 2010 2:56 a.m.

    Nice! I've been trying to get my hands on a legit copy of Beast Within for years. Finally no more bloody DosBox.
  • Redeater - May 22, 2010 2:49 a.m.

    This cracked me up. Of course it was written by Charlie Bearhat. I grew up with Kings, space and police quest so its nice to see some appreciation for these types of games
  • johngrybos - May 22, 2010 2:01 a.m.

    Part 3 and its cat-fur moustache puzzle may not rank among the greatest. But that's just my opinion.
  • batman5273 - May 22, 2010 1:33 a.m.

    hey, Charlie, I thought you said the three greatest games?
  • Amnesiac - May 22, 2010 1:32 a.m.

    This might happen. I already bought Sins of the Fathers, I might take the dive for the rest.
  • Jacob816 - May 22, 2010 1:27 a.m.

    You need help Bearhat. Please check yourself into a clinic.
  • zigs - May 22, 2010 1:12 a.m.

    Hey Charlie, are you as excited about Grey Matter as I am? Helluva lot of potential there
  • davidthebowie - May 22, 2010 1:02 a.m.

    I know I'm stating the obvious, but this article couldn't have been written by any one else. I haven't been disappointed by a gog game yet. Even on vista 64, the games run like a peach. More than I can say for some of my steam purchases.
  • frogfromchronotriggerisactuallyjesus - May 22, 2010 12:57 a.m.

    how did i know that an article about gabriel knight was written by charlie?
