Dungeons & Dreamers
A story of how computer games created a global community
Paperback | Kindle Edition
Written by Brad King and John Borland
ETC Press
Release Date: March 15, 2014

Like any well-written history book, Dungeons & Dreamers captures your attention from the very beginning. For those of us who are older and remember a time before video games were a major source of entertainment, this book is like going home again. It firmly establishes its roots in tabletop gaming and taking the reader through a step-by-step transformation to the wondrous gaming networks we have today. And if it stopped there, this would still have been a labor of love that justified the long hours spent researching and interviewing. But it’s more than that, it’s an exceptionally detailed accounting of the work of several pioneers in the video gaming industry.

Modern gaming owes much of its entertainment and viability to early roleplaying gamers like Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson, who adapted other tabletop games into a more detail rich experience, allowing the player to move about in an unfettered landscape. Many people would come later on that would embrace this concept and take it to the next level. Richard Garriott was one of the first to act upon this, creating a multitude of text based games that eventually led to his massive multiplayer game, Ultima (and its sequels).

Watch Now: 24-Minute ‘The Elder Scrolls Online’ Live Stage Demo
  |  @   |  

We’ve seen some great gameplay action for The Elder Scrolls Online, the upcoming MMO set in Bethesda’s fantastic Elder Scrolls world. The title looks to change the MMO game, so to speak, offering something as close to an actual game in the series—such as Morrowind or Oblivion or Skyrim—as possible, while also allowing you to play with friends and explore these worlds you’ve only been able to explore alone in the past, and only one at a time.

At the recent QuakeCon, Bethesda was on hand to do something we have not seen yet, and that’s a live stage demonstration of ESO in action. This demo shows off what it will be like to start the game and choose your character, what it will be like to play by yourself, and then what it will be like to join up with some friends to go on an adventure together.

You can watch the full stage demo for The Elder Scrolls Online below!
