Free Stuff: Ultima V: Revisited

Ultima V - Gameplay Screenshot
Richard Garriott‘s Ultima V (this is indeed a 5) is an ultra classic, albeit dated, RPG. One of the rare gems of the late 80s and one of the first PC games I (or anyone else for that matter) ever enjoyed, in the long forgotten era of CGA graphic cards and 8088 based PCs. Contemporary and especially younger gamers would never be able to understand how grand such a game could feel, even though they would surely appreciate Ultima V: Lazarus.

Ultima V: Lazarus is a 500+Mb total conversion mod based on the Dungeon Siege engine, created by the (aptly named) Lazarus Team. Not only an impressive audiovisual update, but also an expansion and overall enhancement of the original, Ultima V: Lazarus is a must-download for every (Computer)RPG connoisseur. Download it from the official site.
