    Wow good call. They have most of them for 2.99, and they have Ultima IV as a free download. I haven't played some of these since my last Commodore 64 died. Ultima VII parts 1 and 2 were two of my favorite games of all time.

    Yeah I played a few of those games. Ultima 7 was by far imo the best. But yeah good memories. :)

    Are these newer versions that work ok on todays machines? I only played Serpent Isle, think it was Ultima VI but really enjoyed it. Tried to load it years later on a newer machine and it would not run.

    Yeah, they have engineered them for todays machines. These old games used to be run from DOS instead of Windows so they use a DOS emulator to get them . They are all ready to go when you download them andstart right up after install. No tweaking.
