40% off all Zork titles at GOG.com til Monday.

http://www.gog.com/en/promo/zork_games

$3.60 each for "Zork Anthology" (all the text games), "Return to Zork," "Zork Nemesis" and "Zork Grand Inquisitor."

I now own all the Zork titles for under $15. Woot!

I've never played any game in the series yet, but I'd like to try one, especially at that price! Which one should I pick? Grand Inquisitor seemed fun but I really don't know much about any of those games...

The only one I've played to completion is Return to Zork. I LOVED it.

Zork Nemesis is a very dark game, with super-hard puzzles (I'm told).

Most people tell me Grand Inquisitor is the best.

And if you like text-based crap, all the old games are fun. I intend to play them ... with a walkthrough handy just in case.

I love the spam notifications below DOSbox.

Fans and non-fans of Zork must watch this.
