Up for your perusal is my favorite game of all time, Might and Magic: World of Xeen.
I know this will be a commitment as this game is actually both 4 and 5 mashed together to make one cohesive experience and add in one final quest to tie everything together in a nice tidy bow. However, this was the final “main line” game published for DOS, as 6 was a Windows 95 title, and as such, takes all of the best bit from all of the past titles and creates what is in my opinion, the definitive Might and Magic experience!
This series means a lot to me as it came into my life during a huge change, and has stayed with me through all of the good after that change. It literally represents a turn toward a healthy and happy life for me. This has made my collection grow to encompass anything Might and Magic I can lay my hands on!!!
This will be a huge game to take in in one month, but I do truly believe that once people start playing this one, it will stick with them, and they will want to play through to the end!
I am currently catching up on podcasts, sadly I am a year behind, but am listening to the Eye of the Beholder episode. You all mention Might and Magic heavily as a big series in the Dungeon Crawl genre, and I couldn’t agree more!
Just decided I might need to bump this one a bit… and beg to play this one in the club once more!
