#50: Heroes of Might & Magic III
I honestly forget how I got introduced to Heroes of Might & Magic III. But what I do know is how much this game enthralled me when I did get my hands on that keyboard. I was enamored with the huge world to explore, all while fighting monsters, hunting treasure, and eventurally overcoming your enemies. All this while steadily gathering resources and upgrading your keep for more powerful creatures and defenses. It was a lot to take in at first, but once it clicked, the game became incredibly engaging and fun. My go to was the Necropolis, the bastion of undead might. Skeletons, zombies, vampires, liches, ghost dragons... it was so cool! This game is still a blast to play even today, and it's never a bad time to get lost in the world of Erathia.
