I've picked up Might and Magic VI yesterday. Well, that was a mistake... I've literally spent 4-5 hours in one sitting until I realised that it was dawn already. Never played any other M&M in my life, and the only party-based "first person" RPG game (not sure what's the correct term here) I've played before was Lands of Lore.
Guess I'll have to finish the whole trilogy now.
Too bad the Grayface patches aren't compatible with Win98SE though.
UPD: got to Castle Ironfist. Got to say, there are some annoying things here. Like the fact that game designers just love throwing dozens (if not hundreds) of identical low-level enemies at you in open locations. Oh, and oozes in Dragoons dungeon suck, because there are no weapons with elementary damage available at the moment, so only my sorcerer can do actual damage with his fire bolts. Maybe I could stock up on scrolls and wands, but it still seems a bit too punishing.
Also the fact that the castle has an area that can literally teleport you in the arena with 100-150 mobs (give or take) JUST BECAUSE IT'S SUNDAY. I've walked into this area by mistake three times — why did you have to put it right after the stairs to the castle? Why not put it somewhere in the corner? Or better yet, ask me if I want to actually get my ass kicked right here right now?
