I wonder if I can be a corrupt cop, like Vic Mackie.  Shake down thugs, take their money and try to make enough for my own retirement in the Caribbean.  Or maybe fake a serial killer to get more funds to take down a drug lord.....

Looks like you're driving a desk, making sure the other cops crack their cases.

Oh, good find CeeKay!  That looks interesting.  I haven't played a game like that since Hill Street Blues on the Amiga, and I was a bit too young to really make the most of that one.  I'm going to investigate further.

The life of a Policeman is far too stressful.  My money would go towards something less nerve wracking.

I think Sierra's Police Quest 2 or 3 was the very first PC game I ever bought in late 1992. I quite liked it but the next game I bought in the series had such a baffling beginning I couldn't even figure out how to get past the opening screen.  disgust Back then you couldn't even Google the Internet for solutions.

I loved Police Quest and its sequel!  At the time I had an Amiga and when Police Quest 3 came out - which looked amazing - it was on quite a lot of floppies and we didn't have a hard drive at the time.  Sadly, it was pretty much impossible to play it properly without one, and I never did get to play it.  I had a similar experience with Midwinter 2: Flames of Freedom, too.  crybaby

Police quest 3 was the first game my father bought for me, after he saw how much time I spent playing on borrowed copies of older (always incomplete) sierra games. I utterly loved it for an entire summer.

Like Blackjack said however, the next game (Police Quest Open Season) was a completely different beast, which recreated in astonishing detail the boring real-life work of a detective. That was one strange game...
