Richard Garriott, AKA Lord British, is one of the most well known names in computer gaming, both old school and modern. His influence is still clearly felt today by scores of developers that credit his games for much of their inspiration. He is the creator of Akalabeth, one of the earliest commercially successful computer RPG games of all time. He is also the mastermind behind the Ultima series of games, a massively successful trilogy of trilogies whose releases spanned two decades, which was crowned by the 1997 release of the first commercially successful MMORPG, Ultima Online, which still operates today.
