Ul­tima VII: the Black Gate

Games TM - - REVIEW -

Patrick Mills,

Man, we are get­ting in the Way­back Ma­chine for this one. A game I ab­so­lutely love is Ul­tima VII. It was, in many ways, the first open-world game. You can go out and go ab­so­lutely any­where and, if you know where you are go­ing, you can beat the game in about 15 min­utes. It also had a level of im­mer­sion that is, to my mind, still al­most unmatched. I very rarely see many games that have that level of in­ter­ac­tiv­ity with the world and you can see a lot of its in­flu­ence through the Witcher 3: Wild hunt and you are go­ing to see it again in cy­ber­punk 2077.

I know that for sure be­cause, were you to ask one of our game di­rec­tors, Ul­tima VII would be his an­swer too!
