Yep, remember those games well. Think Ultima IV was on about 6 diskettes.

Remember sneaking around Lord British's castle looking for treasure rooms...

Maybe I'll take a look at this WoW and see what it's all about.

No not really. You did not play with other users. It was just you and the computer generated monsters and world and stuff.

Oh alright. I can image it being good for a while. To me, games are boring unless I've got someone to play with. I still have a few single player games, but they have to be really good.

There is one game series called the .hack series. That was a great game. I played the first and the other 3 hadn't come out yet. So i waited. The moment they came out, I bought them and beat it in the same night.

Then when I beat them all, I did it again. :D

Now I just play online games. Diablo, Starcraft, Counter Strike, WoW, Flash Flash Revolution.

Goboenomo, Ultima 4 would take you HOURS to finish. http://www.uo.com/archive/ultima4/
It was the 1st game that was adventure meets RPG. In 1985 it was KING! And it was the base of WoW. Bow down to Lord British!!!
