    I am the prettiest, smartest, funniest and most skilled writer on this forum.

    Unfortunately all the skill points are in underwater table tennis, I should probably invest a few in writing.


    I also seem to mainly base video game purchases on how bad everybody claims the game is. Ultima IX has one of the worst control schemes I've seen in a third person RPG, and that's including Daggerfall. At least I picked up 1-6 at the same time.

    Shut up, me, I'm trying to be more confident.

    Underwater... table tennis?

    Eh. I mostly pick up games because they're on sale.

    Everything is going according to plan. And by that I mean the plan has changed like 3 times in the last year but now I have it written down and the new plan is going well!.

    Underwater table tennis is a real thing.

    I don't. Is it The Giant? Do comics even count? Is it Munz? Was he even here recently enough to qualify?

    Is it you? It's probably you.

    Oh, if the control scheme were the only thing wrong with Ultima IX it wouldn't have the reputation it has. It's more the way it defecates from a great height all over the storyline and themes of the series it's nominally a part of that annoyed fans. TBH, if you want to play a really good Ultima RPG then you should have gone for 7--6 and earlier, while good, are a bit primitive to modern sensibilities and 8 was too arcadey for its own good.

    For the same reason we climb mountains.

    I've only heard of one of those people but fair point on the big man upstairs.

    Zodi there is no summit underwater.

    And I'm not surprised; most of those people are more active in the roleplay boards than RB.

    The mountains are above water but the point stands. Also there is absolutely underwater mountains, goofball.

    Yeah that'd probably be why.

    Mountains that go above the water are called land. And underwater they may be, but you still need to go *down* to get to them.

    Also there is absolutely underwater mountains, goofball.
    Are. hail grammar

    And while they may technically be summits I don't think it really counts as a metaphorical summit if you have to swim DOWNWARD to get to them (at that stage wouldn't the valleys and trenches be more impressive?)

    Also yes, I am that vain, there are so many times when I feel like the prettiest person in the room. I need to grow my hair out and wear it in proper Celtic Warrior braids!

    Unfortunately I didn't pick up Ultima VII before the sale ended. I got 1-6 because I actually wanted to experience it from the beginning, and IX to see if it's truly terrible without having played the previous games.

    Even ignoring the betrayal it's a serious contender for Worst Game Ever. The controls are bad, the combat is dull, the story is confusing, and the main character is unlikeable. Ultima 1 can't be that bad compared to this.

    Sure they do. It is very ego/human centric to say that Mauna Kea is not an immense mountain just because WE happen to start most of the way up already.

    and since to reach the highest state or degree (a metaphorical summit) one would need its comparative..thus the opposite would be its lowest point if we are going to use a distance based system. (One could use a temporal "starting" point but that again assumes a shared frame of reference that is not really assumable IMO)

    Mauna Kea is above sea level, you do not have to swim down to reach it. Also, yes, it is less impressive to climb something if you start most of the way up it.

    Try reading the things you're responding to, please.

    and since to reach the highest state or degree (a metaphorical summit) one would need its comparative..thus the opposite would be its lowest point if we are going to use a distance based system.

    If you're not going to have any common frame of reference then there's no way to discuss anything.
