PC download service Good Old Games has been on a bit of an Ultima binge recently. Not only did it put out a bundle of the first three Ultima games, but now it's gone and released Ultima 4: Quest of the Avatar for free! Yes, for free!
Ultima 4 changed things up on the PC RPG scene by offering more freedom than most previous games but also with the core idea that there was no main villain. You were to become a moral and upstanding hero that the citizens of Britannia would look up to. Kind of like the Fable games but without the farting.
As someone who's only recently come round to using GOG, I've come to appreciate the work they put into these re-releases. There's also the small fact that GOG will give you free games just for signing up. Now you can add Ultima 4 to a list that includes Beneath A Steel Sky, Lure of the Temptress and err... Teen Agent.
