    Ultima V - EA's Old Tricks

    Jimmy Maher has, for several years now, been posting a detailed history of computer games, starting at the beginning. He's worked his way up to 1987 and has just published an entry that discusses the context for the creation of Ultima V. It's pretty fascinating reading, from Richard Garriott's odd persona to EA being the same EA they are today. Maher's work is worth of more attention than it gets; he's doing a bunch of archival work and historical research to make this history available.
