Heralding the Future of Games

Shroud of the Avatar

After spending some time with Richard Garriott last week, there were a bunch of topics that we discussed which did not make it on video. One of the main ideas was where video games are going, especially MMOs.

This led to the discussion of why Shroud of the Avatar will herald in a new era of games that continue to bring players together on many levels.Posted Mar 7, 2014 by Garrett Fuller
