Red_Avatar: Space Quest was a lot less punishing out of all the Quest games. King's Quest is the main culprit but also Quest for Glory sinned quite a bit and let's not forget Leisure Suit Larry which had plenty of moments where you'd get shafted if you didn't watch out.
Arteveld: I've finished LSL 1-3, QFG 1-3, SQ1-5, PQ1-4, and didn't really notice anything vile and evil.
When You said "every game where you can forget to pick up an item which causes you to die" and "make the game uncompletable more than 5 minutes later", which exactly games did You mean, because the killing object was in SQ4, and it was in the first minutes of the game, not really a game killer.
So, which games can i not complete if i forget an item?
Pfew, I can't think of it from the top of my head since it's been 10 years but there's a site that handles these fiendish puzzles which I've read a few months back - I can't find it right now though. One I remember in King Quest involving a shield and a dragon. In LSL2 there were several including money shortage, buying the wrong item, losing an item, not carrying an item you should have bought long before (like sunscreen in a store way before you knew you'd needed it), etc. so there's plenty - I think you just forgot them :p
