If there ever is a list of computer games that changed the world of gaming forever, Dungeon Master would figure prominently on the top, among such classics as Civilization and Doom. Dungeon Master was not the first roleplaying game to be viewed from a first person perspective; that honor goes to Akalabeth by Richard Garriot. It wasn't the most difficult game, either. However, by combining a very unique spell casting system with real-time combat, unprecedented graphics and awesome sound, the game managed to create such an authentic atmosphere that only Ultima Underworld, many years later, was able to match it.

Couldn't agree more - quite possibly the greatest game I'd ever seen on the Atari when it came out

This has to be one of the RPGs I tried playing the most – without ever finishing it. I think the farthest I got was level 3 or 4 (I vaguely remember fighting some mummies?). There is something about it that keeps me coming back… yet there is also something that always puts me off.

It is also a game I only knew for the longest time by stories from a good friend back in school. One of those games you get told a lot of stories about and get your very own image of how it must look and play like. Maybe it is the discrepancy between this and the actual game that is still letting me down after all those years.
