The Avernum games are amazing, as are Avaddon and the Geneforce games.

Also, see if you can find Infinity Engine games, like Planescape: Torment, Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale.

Another amazing game is Albion, even though it may be hard to find. Its a spiritual successor to Amberstar and Ambermoon (also amazing games, BTW), and features a big world, very good tactical battles and a challenge thru the roof.

The 3 Realms of Arkania games are great, even if a little too complex. Just forget about the remake of the first game, as it is completelly unplayable.

Lastly, DO get the Might and Magic series. Even if 1 and 2 are a bit TOO old-school for some, MM3 onwards are still completelly playable today. There are 8 amazing games and one so-so one. Recently, the series was reborn as Might and Magic X: Legacy, but its not released yet (its in early access phase, but its more like in a pre-alpha stage).

Evolution of the dungeons in the Elder Scrolls game (from Daggerfall onwards)... ES 6 dungeons will be strait lines, I guess...

Didn't they just release a new M&M game?


Well, its not officially released. Its in early access stage as of yet, and only 30% or so is done, the game is still buggy and slow, but its quite fun, and feels VERY similar to MM3-MM6.

BTW, if you buy it now, not only you'll be able to test the game before its release, but you'll also get Might and Magic 6 for free. :)

Sort of. It's an early access game so you'll only get access to a small portion of the game. The deal does seems pretty good though:

MM6.


If there is ONE thing its not, its that. Its grid based, which is love or hate. (on my side, absolutely hate that). Nothing at all like MM6-8, a complete downgrade unfortunately.

Yeah, only NOW I've noticed that I said MM3-MM6, while I meant MM3-MM5. :p
