yeah you can always count on the good ol' M&M series, just installed 8, only tried it fairly recently, and havent finished it. 6,7 i've played through so many times, starting to have some hopes for X, its looking pretty good..

I've only played through M&M7 and I have to say the gameplay was quite gripping.

It got a bit boring once you got that special weapon imo. It's a bit the same with Fallout once you get some special item too. The game gets somewhat too easy and the sense of character advancement and magic disappears to me.

The story wasn't great, but the way you had to advance your characters was quite good. (special class quests)

I had played the game a long time ago when it came out and those skills were too daunting for me. I tried again two years ago I believe and I really enjoyed it.

A bit of a ramble, but hey, who cares ?

I tend to agree.

If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?

You use {spoiler} Text here {/spoiler} but with square brackets, like the quote ones…

I'm guessing it's because they thought it would be "cool"…

There is always the option of not using the blasters if you want to challenge yourselves.

I tried to but my party kept getting overwhelmed. It was just too hard and by the end of M&M6 I was ready for the game to end as the last 1/3 of the game is quite the grind as it is.

It's not my role to restrict myself in games when they are designed in a certain way (imo).
And it wouldn't be much more challenging, just more tedious since the only thing they did when adding the weapons that were supposed to be in spoiler tags , is add 99999999 monsters to the last few levels.

Also, to be honest, it was the worst thing in the plot. Again, might have looked cool on paper, but to me seemed very tacked on for little purpose.

The plot was not the greatest, but it was fun to have one house plotting against the other and saving little villagers from dragons.
The end seemed tacked on by someone who had a few too many joints one day and ran to the board room:

Glad someone else likes MM6. I'm more of a MM3-5 guy myself but of the "modern" MM games, 6 is by far my favorite.

I love the Tomb of Varn, the seemingly never-ending spawn of dragons in the bombed out wastes out west, the true end boss fight (The only other true end boss fight in a MM game was 4, IMO)…MM6 doesn't have the alignment play of 7 or the imaginative races of 8, but it does have the best dungeons and the most incredibly outlandish fights.

I probably think of the last boss fight with the queen differently than most, since I never use blasters and refuse to learn the skill. I do it old school style: Shrapmetal and dual swords.

It's also one of my go-too games when I'm bored with the ho-hum new stuff. Right now I'm playing a lot of Morrowind with the new overhaul mod.

If you can read German, I recommend this site for the Might&Magic universe:
