http://www.gog.com/promo/special_promo_ultima_series_241214 I think Ultima 7 Part 2 had the best balance between user interface and "Ultima-ness". U7P1 had a good story but some interface issues. U8 had an arguably better interface but I could never get into the story. I've heard good things about Exult ( http://exult.sourceforge.net/ ) but haven't gotten around to trying it out. Bringing U7 into this century with a UI update is tempting though. What were your favorite Ultimas?
