Even today I would gladly sacrifce graphics for a game with a great story line. The first Wizardry games had minimal graphics and could be played until the wee hours of the mornings making work more difficult. I couldn't wait to get home to get back into the game again. Having to make a map on grid paper only added to the fun. Those lousy spinners, I never did know which direction I was facing when I stopped. All part of a great game. An era long past like the Golden days of T.V.
Ahhh, Wizardry! Such sweet memories of my induction into a most enjoyable addiction to video/computer games. I remember staying up late into the night to finish exploring one dungeon level (getting slaughtered or teleported numerous times) while drafting a map of that dungeon using only paper and pencil. Those were wonderful days of gaming. The games today are good, it's just that they are very different.
I have the whole Wizardry set that includes every single game to Wizardry 8 (I think that was the last game that was released, although I could be wrong).
Thanks for taking me down memory lane. Such a great diversion from the daily grind. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />
