Garriott drives me nuts, people look up to him but really what has he produced since Ultima Online? One failed half assed project after another. I loved Ultima growing up, I played all of them even the 3D Eye of the Beholder-esque ones and I followed Garriot for years afterwards but with the disapointment of Tabula Rasa and his weird "showmanship" with his castle and whinging on about not being an Astronaut I realised he's just a really weird creepy and slightly sad man who's best work is behind him.

Eh, that's too much hate really. The dude had to get surgery and learn Russian to go into space. It wasn't a road trip to Vegas. He's got a pretty long and cool list of life accomplishments whether he ever makes another game or not. Yeah, he's wealthy, but if you read about him he does some pretty cool and generous things with his cash. That's more than I can say for a lot of rich people.

But, yeah, the games he's made after Ultima haven't stacked up and I get the feeling he is washed up on that front and/or is just doing it for kicks anyway.
