I hacked Ultima XX way back when: it was all tables. I find that even with OOP, tables (dictionaries) have their place.
In my student days as a TA in the introductory programming course, half of the University departments insisted on sticking to Fortran ("we are doing engineering!!"), the other half had modernized to Pascal. Except for the language, the subjects taught was the same - except for one hand-in: In the Pascal group, the problem required the use of a linked list.

There was this (very cute) female chemistry student - her department insisted on Fortran - who got a little crossed: Why can't we learn the same stuff as they do in those other departments? So I explained that Fortran had no pointer mechanism, where one variable would tell where another value was located. She got very curious, so I had to go into more details of the mechanism, with a heap that could be seen as a huge array, and a pointer serving as an index into it. (They had been working a lot with arrays at this time.)

One week later this girl was back: She had gotten hold of the Pascal exercise, and solved it in Fortran in the way I had explained, with an array and using another variable as an index into the array. The solution gave the expected result, but she would be happy if I could take a look at it to see if she had done it the right way ...
