Ultima 7, in my opinion, was the best of all Ultima games. I played it through 7 or 8 times, and found every little secret, and every bug, and every weird like thing I could. The game starts with the Avatar (you) returning to Britannia, and finding yourself in the city of Trinsic with your companion Iolo, investigating the ritualistic murder of a local man. This is where you find out about the Fellowship, a organisation apparently commited to spreading a new message of goodness through out the land. However, all is not as it seems, and you soon find out there is a much more powerful and evil force behind everything. What makes this game stand out from previous Ultimas, and many of the RPG's of its time is the detail in the game world. You can make flour, which you can use to bake bread, to sell to the local baker. You can carry pumpkins from one place to another to make change. You can sneak through dungeons past dragons using invisibilty spells. The amount of freedom is quite suprising for a game of its age. I would defintly recommend this game, and the series of games it is a part of.
