From the glory days of the DOS-based RPG 90's era, Ultima VII: The Black Gate is the seventh entry in the Ultima series that started out on the Apple II computer. You play as The Avatar and you must get to the bottom of a series of murders and figure out what The Guardian has to do with it. It was commercially successful and led to an expansion pack, Ultima VII: Forge of Virtue.

The Exult project was started in 2003 and has been going ever since, adding official signed and notarized Universal 2 macOS builds just recently. The project is one of the more well known third party efforts, even receiving praise from Lord British himself.

Note that modern game retailers like GOG almost always feature both games and their expansions under the collective title Uiltima VII: The Complete Edition or something to that effect, so buying one package gets you everything and Exult allows you to pick which one you want to play.
