Ultima is a series of RPG's that holds a special place in my heart and in gaming history as a whole. They are responsible for shaping the face of open world role playing games and were the first to include any type of karma/reputation system in game. One where your actions and behavior directly affected your interaction with others and the games outcome.

For those of us who have had the privilege of playing these (or at least some of) these games, which is your all time favorite? This poll will include all versions and ports of Ultima games on one line - ie: if Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar on the NES was your favorite, just vote the Ultima IV line biggrin.gif My personal favorite, by a hair, would have to be Ultima VII: The Black Gate on Exult. The story and open world were so intricate and expansive, it is a true role playing delight. This game just edged out the Ultima V remake entitled Lazarus, which was a close second for me.

Also, for those of you who don't know... Richard Garriott (aka Lord British) is back at it, creating a long time "sequel" of sorts to the Ultima series entitled Shroud of the Avatar! It will be a single player RPG with multi-player element. Check it out here if you're interested: https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/ thumb.gif

Voted for Ultima 7, one of the greatest RPGs ever made in my opinion. Hoping to see more out of the Ultima franchise one day..

Have you heard about the Shroud of the Avatar Kickstarter project? It raised over 2M in funds and is Richard Garriotts latest Ultima project. He cannot call it Ultima because EA owns that name, and he does not want to work with EA.

I was about 40 when I played my first Ultima, it was U-VI. My son was spending the summer with me and he saw that it was out so we got it and loaded it on my Compaq 86286 wit 8 Mb of RAM and I got my introduction to the Ultima series.
