I always found the first three games too hard, Keen 4's theme didn't click for me, and I thought Keen 6 was slightly too complicated. Keen 5, on the other hand... my favourite Keen game by far. Shame they never made the third "Goodbye, Galaxy" game... :(

Keen 1. :) My favourite keeps changing, or at least did before.

I reluctantly rate Keen 4 just higher than all the (PC) others.

Thank you. No need to feel dirty, nobody is going to vote for it anyway, not even me.
My favourite is Keen 1 because of it's one of the first games I played and because of the yorps. Keen 6 would be a close second.

I'm gonna say five. I think two would be second place.

'nuff said.

As much as I love the Scrubs, they can't carry Keen2 to victory over the atmosphere of Keen6... There's something about the giant light switches, the platforms piloted by minuscule lifeforms, and the satellite recreational district that really resonates with me. :) Also, the music is my favorite in the series.

HEY!! You said in the XkyKeen2 docs that Keen 2 was your favorite episode!

(Come on, everyone, clear off. Step away from the contradiction. You don't know what might happen if you touch it.)

Keen 6 would have to be my favorite. I think it feels more like an alien environment than any of the other episodes. I also like Keen 5 but it feels too sterile. Keen 4 comes in close second, I think. Keen 2 is fun but the levels can seem a bit repetitive after a while.

I guess it's only me and Djaser who like the first one the most. :crazy Of the 'new' episodes I like Keen 4 perhaps the best, its world is so versatile.
