Richard Garriott, aka Lord British, is best known for his series of Ultima video games dating back to the early 1980s. He’s back in the news with an upcoming mission to the International Space Station. We called him up to learn how the old games were made, what inspired him, his upcoming mission and Operation Immortality. You’re going to love this!
