    Oh, I recently stumbled across a new game coming out, Underworld Ascendant, which is the spiritual successor to Ultima Underworld. I never actually played an Ultima Underworld game (short of messing about in the gog version for all of 15 minutes), and would love an excuse to give one an honest shot. I hear the 1st one is the best one.

    Again, I’m stoked on any Ultima, even thinking of having to choose which Ultima to play seems painfully difficult!

    I loved this game as a kid. My friend had it, and he did not like it. I’m pretty sure I tortured him by asking to play it every single time I visited. 🙂

    Thanks for the run tip. The only nagging issue I felt so far was how slowly the dude walked.

    I love the dos game club, you dudes are guys right after my own heart!

    I played both BioForge and Ecstatica. I even suggested Ecstatica in the forums! I actually installed Ecstatica last month and played it a bit. You can find it on MyAbandonware.com (I think that’s the name of it, if not, it’s close) and I ran it in dosbox w/o any issues.

    Seriously, no one I have ever spoken to in real life has ever even heard of BioForge or Ecstatcia. It’s awesome to have come across folks who enjoyed these games as a kid like me. 🙂

    I did end up finishing both games, but BioForge is damn hazy in my memory (other then I remember liking it) but Ecstatcia is pretty clear. I don’t remember all the puzzles, but I do remember a lot of them. It was creepy, and that werewolf guy scared me as a kid. I remember fighting him FOREVER trying to kill him. I don’t think it’s possible.

    I’ve started too! I have never played any of these games, so I’ve been excited to jump right in. I think I’ve finally wrangled the controls. They seem pretty simple for the most part.

    Needless to say I was killed by the first two monsters because I could barely figure out how to attack, but once I restarted after figuring everything out I’ve started to make my way through!

    I found a sword and gave it a few swings, and the blade broke off! Not sure if I that always happens or if my “testing it” whacked it against a wall and broke it.

    I do enjoy the look of the game. The monsters are awesome. I must say… the scariest monster I’ve seen so far… is the face on the female protagonist. 😉 That mouth and lips are sooooo wide! She looks like the damn joker!

    When I restarted I discovered the first window was the character select screen, and I switched to the dude.

    All in all, this seems like the perfect October game!

    Wow everyone is in this thread so I can’t help but jump in too! I’d eagerly welcome an RPG to the list!

    I did play Betrayal at Krondor as a kid, but I was pretty young and I didn’t really “get it” at the time. I never made it very far.

    I have always wanted to play Wasteland! I’m a big Fallout fan, played them all a lot.

    I am VERY partial to the Ultima series. Ultima V sits just under Starflight in regards to my favorite memories of gaming with my dad. Ultima Rules!

    So my vote goes for Wasteland, or Ultima… but admittedly that Keef the Thief sounds pretty funny too, and I’ve never heard of it!

    Looking forward to returning to Monkey Island! This is another game I played with my dad at a young age. We had the original game w/ the spinning code wheel. Unfortunately a pipe broke in my parents house a few years ago and Monkey Island was one of the PC games that was destroyed in the flood. I did manage to harvest the original Disks out of it… which are a bit funky smelling… I’m sure they’re dead…but I still keep’m in the collection for the memories.

    Hmm I actually had that one as a kid! But I never had any of the sequels. I don’t think I ever beat it. You just need to find tons of gems and figure out where to place them for the most part right? To defeat the evil Jester?

    It’s those little needless details that I think give Blizzard games such charm. As rough as the game is to play compared to modern standards (my kingdom for a control group) I have honestly been having a lot of fun going back and playing. Fighting vs your own unit AI is… half the fun? haha

    I feel like I need to try to get in some Warcraft 1 time, just so I can help put some perspective on the growths and changes. I remember Warcraft 1 only had 4 units select-able at a time, so if you felt limited with 9… ohhh boy. >:D

    I hope everyone is having as much fun as I am! 🙂

    I would be down for an X-Com episode! I played this game a TON when I was in 6th grade. I feel like I was almost a bit too young to get everything fully, but I eventually figured it out and did beat the game.

    I remember thinking the Mind Control was just the most insane game feature of all time.

    I love this game! I played it in the USA under the banner “Relentless: Twinson’s Adventure”

    I got this game when I was in 7th grade after reading a review for it in PC Gamer I think. I remember thinking how unique it looked and it really pulled me in. The nature of the open world after you can start traveling between islands, the colorful world w/ crazy characters. Elephant people, rabbit/mouse people, all living in a seemingly contemporary world… but w/ magic teleporting robots.

    This one holds a real special place in my heart.
