Tabula Rasa

Drugs are good. Probably. Or maybe they’re not. Richard Garriott just can’t help making you think about this stuff. His fame was founded on the moral dilemmas of the Ultimas, the games that established the very framework of what we consider the modern PC RPG. You can draw a line from his early work, via Baldur’s Gate, to today’s greats such as Knights of the Old Republic and Neverwinter Nights 2. But Garriott no longer makes single-player RPGs.
