I couldn't give a fuck about Sid Meier, one-trick pony. Sure, the original Civ was fantastic, I remember being amazed by it when I was in 4th grade but Alpha Centauri was better than any Civ game - to this day - and he didn't even work on it.

My vote would go to the all around whacky guy, Richard Garriot. I mean without the Ultimas other great games we have come to know and love like Baldur's Gate, Fallout, Daggerfall/Elder Scrolls, WoW or even System Shock & Thief might never have seen the light of day.

Flight sim pioneer, and the man behind Railroad Tycoon, Civilization, and Pirates. Not to mention his input and dedication to Firaxis, one of the premier PC-centric game developers still going today. His time running and co-leading Microprose was what made him historic though.

Sid Meier - the greatest game developer of alle time imo.

Brian Fargo is a part-owner of Fig, which is why they are using Fig.

Obsidian and Inxile are partnering up for a lot of these games "behind the scenes", and Fargo is the bigwig at InXile.

The remastered KQ and Quest for Glory are very well done. Excellent, I'd say. Played them through with my wife and we enjoyed them a lot.

Why not revive Eye of the Beholder series, these were better than Bards Tale IMHO.

I second this.

News Comments > Another RPG Revival Planned by inXile

The new 5th Edition ruleset for D&D is the best iteration yet (imo).

However, depending on what camp you are in, it either doesn't lend itself too easily to CRPG's or it makes everything much easier. ;-)

The rules are less strict, and GM control is back as a very deciding factor. So if you are a company that works best within a constant frame, 5e is not too good, whereas if you are good to adapt, I suspect 5e is the easiest D&D system yet to turn into a computer game concept.

That said, I would love for someone to try and make a new D&D game with 5e rules. The Baldur's Gate games have still not been surpassed.

I would also be delighted to see a remake of Shattered Lands, or heck Al-Quadim even and experience that cool world in an outright CRPG.

I'm going to Birmingham too, and researched it a little.

Civil Rights Institute should be a chilling and memorable experience.
Mt. Ruffner Mountain nature center/park should provide some nice vistas and hiking. We're staying with some people from Couchsurfing, so can't really tell you much, but the town seems interesting.

Guidebooks say that nothing is happening in downtown, but the surrounding cityscape should be nice. Vulcan Park gets good reviews too.
