TR - Richard Garriott Interview at Gamespot

Posted Thu, Feb 09, 2006 by Awenyddion

Gamespot had the chance to interview "Lord British" and got some great tidbits on his thoughts of the industry and why he thinks that Tabula Rasa is going to break the traditional MMO boundaries.

S: Looking at the previous inductees to the Hall of Fame, pretty much all of them are still very active. At the same time, though, the Hall of Fame induction in most fields is kind of a career retrospective. I'm wondering if you worry or concern yourself at all that maybe your largest impact upon the industry has already been made.

RG: That thought has at least crossed my mind, and, interestingly, I don't think so. And the reason why I don't think so is because Ultima Online wasn't that long ago. You could have made that argument previous to Ultima Online.

I substantially believe that Tabula Rasa, the game I'm working on right now, is a dramatic departure from all other [massively multiplayer games] that have come before and will revitalize this segment again.
