I loved several of their games. Want to go to Monolith Burger to sit and talk about them?
Incidentally, my favorite game was Jones in the Fastlane. It was sort of a computer board game where you compete to meet 4 goals: education, career, money, and happiness. Each turn represented one week of your life, so there are only so many hours available. Random events over the weekend (between turns) and the presence of the thief Wild Willie plays into the game as well. The economy can hit the skids and you can lose your job. You might spent the weekend going on an expensive weekend getaway to Vegas or La Jolla. You can get sick and spent a couple of days of your week in the hospital. You might have forgotten to buy food last week and you lose time due to starvation. It was quite fun and the sense of humor that you expect in Sierra games still was there.

There is a disk for Incredible Toon Machine on my desk right now, I have to go into XP mode to play it though.
For a kid game, most of the puzzles are easy enough but there really are some wicked hard ones where I needed to find the hints to solve them online. Solving puzzles using the pieces in a completely wrong way in which they were not intended to be used but STILL managing to beat the puzzle, always satisfying. ;D
