8. Re: Ultima 1-3 on GOG.com Aug 31, 2011, 00:14 zincthallinide
 
I found Ultima 3 fun back in the day. Ultima 2 is a bit obtuse and Ultima 1 seemed really simplistic even 10 years ago.

The UI for these isn't horrible, beyond being entirely keyboard based with no in-game help.

Re: Populous, similarly it's amazing to me that I beat Dune 2 when it was new - you can only select one unit at a time, there's no hotkey grouping, and it's pretty easy to get entirely stuck on a mission with nowhere to go (if you use poor strategy). The AI is quite horrible even for the time though, which helps a little..

Populous was amazing at the time, but that too, the main screen shows what, 5x5 tiles at a time on a big map? It doesn't seem so amazing now.
