So, yesterday I finished Ultima VII Part Two: Serpent Isle. The only Ultima games left for me to play are Ultima VIII: Pagan and Ultima IX: Ascension, Ultima Underworld I and II and the Worlds of Ultima games. But I've heard so many people complain about those games (Pagan and Ascension) and how they lack a true Ultima feel, not to mention that they are plagued by numerous bugs. I love the Ultima series for its epic scope. Since joining GOG.com I've bought quite a few games frome their RPG catalogue which is superb and I hope keeps getting better. I have also completed the Baldur's Gate series (did all the sidequests and expansions) and the Icewind Dale series. I played Ultima because I was curious since I heard it mentioned several times and started all the way from Ultima I: The Age of Darkness. Is it worth it playing these games just to say I've completed the series? Do they have redeeming qualities in your view or would you switch to another series like Might and Magic (which I also bought here but I've never played it)? I have so many games I want to try and several on the wishlist, but I want people's opinions of their experience with these two games.
