I never played any Might and Magic games. Might give this a shot next year though - perfect Steam Deck material!

Be careful, "Might and Magic" games are very different games than "Heroes of Might and Magic" ones, despite sharing the same universe in some episodes.
I never played Might and Magic ones neither but I can strongly recommend playing the "Heroes" ones.
