Conquests of Camelot: A Search for the Grail

Yes, that's it! One of the first games I played on a PC, probably back in 1990, it's remarkable because of the point system. Many puzzles had multiple solutions, but if you chose to be violent or sinful, you could end up with finding the Holy Grail and not being worthy of taking it. I also loved that the help system was to talk to Merlin.

More screenshots for those who thought it looked interesting: https://www.giantbomb.com/conquests-of-camelot-the-search-for-the-grail/3030-19759/images/

Josiah, you're on.

I thought that's QFG3 at first (but that'd be too easy).
I never played either of QFG3 and Conquests of Camelot (only seeing some screenshots of QFG3) and didn't realise these two games are so close in theme. If not comparing the screenshots of both games to see that they're really different, you'll bet lazy Sierra just reused backgrounds on both games!

Odd thing is that I've never played this game but I've often seen screenshots of it and recognised its art style, so I went to Mobygames and check the screenshot section of that certain game and indeed that's the one.

I do not want to answer this, but I'm sure a number of people here should be able to get the correct answer.

Yes, the first! I remember that morbid graphic style!
