My answer to the poll is necessarily skewed by my limited exposure to older RPGs.
I never got to know any Ultima games in their heyday (except Ultima Online), and I haven't played through any of them yet. I still intend to do this with U7 Black Gate with Exult. One day. Maybe
I know that neither Wizardry 7 or 8 grabbed me enough to play them further than a few minutes in.
Might & Magic is a serious contender, but I only know VI (which I loved), VII (which I quite liked, but less than VI) and VIII (which I dropped after the first 10 minutes). I think it finalizes as my personal number 3 series.
I never played any Realms of Arkania game, although I once started Shadows over Riva, and I didn't like the antics of the game.
I've never even seen a Gold Box game.
I only know TES: Morrowind (which I loved) and Oblivion (which bored me), which would still make it my personal number 2 series.
I probably lose my geek license by admitting to never having seen any Fallout game.
I absolutely loved both Baldur's Gate games. This makes this series my personal winner by default, I guess
Gothic. Don't beat me, but I hated the controls. That's probably my loss, but it still means that I have never played any of the games more than a few minutes. They are still on the list of my "have to play this one day" list (which might mean that they will never get touched.)
NWN? The first one was not that cool as a game (I'm not counting the editor). The expansions were better, and they brought me to finish the main game
. The second single player campaign was slightly more engaging, and I got pretty near to the end with this one. Which still means that I didn't finish it
. So no vote for this one.
That leaves the BG series for me. And I notice that I'm a notorious "never finish anything" gamer. OK, that's not true, but I haven't finished quite a few titles.
