I had heard of this game before, but it was actually a negative review on Youtube that piqued my interest in the game via reverse psychology. I either learned from the reviewers mistakes, or he just really sucked at playing this, because I'm not having any of the problems he had. I'm enjoying this quite a bit & see myself sticking around. I've never played Ultima Online because I was a teenager when it came out & my mother was opposed to the idea of online transactions, I'd also never played any of the Ultima games because I didn't get into RPGs until 2005. It was actually the similarities to Elder Scroll: Morrowind that pulled me in. Always did prefer Morrowind over Oblivion or Skyrim. After years of playing hand-holding MMORPGs, this "figure it out for yourself" approach is rather interesting. & the old school gameplay is refreshing. The way you talk to NPCs & unlock hidden dialogue is fun, the questing is not boringly straightforward. But as I sit here in a house in Soltown reading a pile of books, I'm wondering if I take books marked as private property, will the guards chase me, make me pay a fine, & take my books?
