The only one I played and beat from the Ultima series was Exodus Ultima, it had to be one of the most difficult RPG's which was released on the NES series. This series was to my knowledge the first generation of role playing games created by created by Richard Garriott, a.k.a. Lord British.

The series gets a significant upgrade with U4, so keep going. U4-7 and the Underworld games are the motherlode of crpg innovations, and U7 is one of the most detailed and interactive open worlds around. Games like Gothic and the Witcher 3 are cargo cults built around its features. The Worlds games are supposed to be pretty good, but I haven't played them.

I played Ultima 7 back in the day as a kid, although I really had no fucking clue what I was doing. But I loved the huge open world and moral freedom.

I've been trying to get into the series as an adult, starting with 4. We'll see how it goes I guess.

You got Ultima 7 to run as a kid? Clever bastard.

Why is Ultima 8 so bad?

I don't remember it being that hard. Not as hard as trying to get Ultima 9 to run at a playable framerate, Jesus. But learning to get games to run was the whole reason I ever got good at computers in general. Stupid IRQ settings.

Plus, these days GOG makes it super easy.

>trying to get Ultima 9 to run at a playable framerate

It still ran like shit last time I bothered to try, on something like Palomino or Thunderbird with at least 128 MB RAM etc. That's an achievement in and of itself, how badly it is written.
