Ultima Worlds (Link to section)
Ultima Worlds has the classic games by Richard Garriot from Origin Systems. Battle the Guardian in Ultima VII: The Black Gate. Uncover the Fellowship plot to control the minds of Britannia citizens and how Lord British intends to deal with it. Solve lots of sub quests in the way, earning rewards and experience points that can train you in your various skills.
Discover Batlin's evil plan in Ultima VII: Serpent Isle. It utilises the same engine as Black Gate with various enhancements such as combat detail, photo-realistic portraits and a captiviating storyline. However the linear approach has added negative points to the game - still it is one of the good classic rpg games.
For both the games listed above, there are many fan works done for it. The most great one has to be Exult - it allows the Ultima VII series to be played in Windows. Music soundtrack, the whole slew of the in-game music, humorous poking at the engine. The full game manuals can also be downloaded - consisting of the Fellowship Guide, Forge of Virtue and the Reference guides.
And in Ultima VIII: Pagan, the Avatar gets banned to Pagan - it is up to you to find a way to get out of there, without any companion support. The Lost Vale, expansion was planned but not released as no one will buy it anyway - the original game did not get good ratings
Ultima Underworld I: The Stygian Abyss brings you into a 3d environment. Directed by Warren Spector, the game has got high ratings. The Avatar soughts a way out of the Abyss while seeking to rescue the Princess.
Ultima Underworld II: Labyrinth of Worlds places you in Lord British's castle where the Guardian suddenly covers the whole castle with blackrock. Exploring the castle, you uncover a gem that leads you to other worlds. Another high rated game.
