Love U8! Myself and my brothers spent days playing it back in the day. The main theme music is a classic

I spent countless hours on Ultima 4 back on my C64.  I think I stopped playing around U6, but I do need to go back and finish the rest.  They have the whole set available on gog.com:

Everybody rags on U8 and sure before the massive patch it was awful but I loved it. Apparently U7 is the real crown in the jewel, I have it along with the expansion. I think I might fire it up to see what all the fuss is. But if you stick with U8 its got a great story. It's just a bit crazy when you play it first.
