Ultima is a game universe created by Richard Garriott, and later through his company Origin Systems. The first Ultima game was published in 1981. The series spanned dozens of games, soundtracks, comic books, and more.

My first experience with the series was from the NES game Ultima: Exodus, which I really loved, despite its many flaws. A middle school friend later showed me Ultima VII: The Black Gate and I was utterly blown away. I own every major Ultima game and have played nearly all of the non-canon games as well.
