Retro games rock, hard. From FF to Kotor to Aoe there's an excellent game for every category. I haven't gotten to the Ultima series though, what're they like?

I find the conversations and stuff between characters a lot better in NV, they feel a lot more... I don't really know how to describe it, fluid maybe? Unless you're switching back and forth to questions they feel much more like an actual coherent conversation. Gameplay is mostly same as 3 anyway, so...
