Speaking of which, I've managed to install Ultima 7 but the manual doesn't mention controlls at all. So I'm a bit uncertain on how to play the game (and that goes for journal too. Do I really need to keep my own notes? ).

Yes, the original Ultima V has very bad graphics by today's standards. It takes a lot of patients and understanding on the player's part to work through the game. But, it is well worth the effort as it offers a story of morals that modern games don't.

Ultima 7 is very easy to get the hang of. It's mostly point and click. I think if you just fool around with it for a while you can get used to it quickly. It doesn't make use of the ethics system very deeply but it does have a great story and an amazing world. Also, the graphics are dateless. You can play it 10 years from now and still enjoy the graphics.
