Keen 4. It was the first one I ever played and will always be my favorite.

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.)
Uh oh. :) Hrm... well, I'm in a pickle, then. Keen2 is the best of the original trilogy, while 6 is the best of the games on the Galaxy engine.

Of course, the only way to settle this is for the two games to have a throwdown. Vorticon Elites versus Blooguards. Bobbas versus the purple Security Robots. Blooglets versus Vortikids.

Scrubs versus Bips. Oh, the carnage. :)

Could someone make this a multiple choice poll? I like both Keen 4 and 5 best equally.

@Xky: Hmm, well, all right, I'm not really satisfied. :p

@DaVince: I don't know if phpBB has those.

I'll vote for Keen 4, since it was the first Keen game i ever played...
Thus - it's just simply splendid!

It's so hard to choose which one is the best. Between Keen 5 and 6... I like the style, enemies, tiles, music and setting of Commander Keen 5 but Commander Keen 6 is... the art and creativity is FANTASTIC. (Seriously... the "eat at joes" dinner-sign was awesome.)

It's hard to choose. Keen 5 seems more refined... Keen 6's world is just awesome though. (Always loved Fribbulus Xax.)

Four!

Commander Keen 4 would always be my favorite. I like the graphics in particular, although there are some things that can be be done specificly in the later series.

Commander Keen 5 would be my next favourite. I like the spaceship setting, and I love the hidden korath base.

Out of the first trilogy, I like keen 2 the best. The puzzles were brilliant. Keen 1 was (unfortunately) incredibly easy, and Keen 3 was never created to live up to its full potential.

I don't know, really. I like Keen 5 and 6 a lot, I quite like Keen 1... I've never really been any good at choosing favourites out of things.

Topic's title is 'Best Keen game', singular. Better wait for a 'Best Keen games' topic.

I'd have to say Keen 4. Although it was the first I played...
Keen Dreams sucks. I think it would win the "Worst Keen Game" award.

I'd say Keen GBC is the worst, but I don't even consider it a Keen, so I can't say that. :dopefish

Don't worry, I voted anyway. Just such a difficult choice when 4, 5 and 6 are ALL top quality. And then 1, 2 and 3 for the people who prefer those, though that's a bit easier since 3 was rushed, anyway.
