Ultima has all many of the elements that I look for in a great game.
Wonderful stories, interaction with the elements and people of the fantasy
world, puzzles, and reasonable ethics. (Or at least that's were the series
Did You Wipe Your Shoes Before Entering? :
MUD stands for (in my mind), Multi-User Dungeon, but I'll let it stand
for any on-line games which allow too many people to play together at once.
All MUDs suffer from the lack of control over the players who simply act as
you would expect humans to act once you've made them virtually anonymous and
removed severe consequences for uncivilized behavior. They typically have
poor story lines too.
They remind me of a senario where a uncooperative child finds his way into a
sandbox and the teachers believe you can all get along and play. I don't
believe that you can just have anyone play games because there are always
those people who thrive on the anguish of others. When I play a game, I
believe it is supposed to be fun and challenging. If I do not have enough
respect for my opponents after the game for shaking their hands, then
something is wrong.
