"Games that treat religion realistically, weaving it into the game as it is woven into people's lives, can provide a richer and more realistic simulation," says Destination Games founder and Ultima creator Richard Garriott.
The result was Ultima IV: The Quest of the Avatar, a game that used a series of ethical questions to determine your character class, and then thrust you into a world that offered a great deal of freedom.
Adventure games typically use religion as the historical and supernatural backdrop needed for such a story driven genre.

 WORTHPLAYING - - All about games !
If you played one of these games before, you’re no doubt familiar with how time consuming this process is — first you have to see what’s going on, then find out where your friends are, work your way there and finally hook up with your friends.
The PvP in the game isn’t about killing players of an opposing realm or faction — it’s more like the Army’s war games, where the goal is to get better at fighting a common enemy by practicing on one another.
The game will also support voice chat, which is a great way of being able to communicate with your group without worrying about being able to type fast.

Under this moniker, the now filthy rich founder of Origin and Destination Games built a twenty-year-old empire upon a cornerstone that began with a little game called Akalabeth and eventually evolved into the award-winning, unforgettable Ultima franchise.
On the one hand, I feel vindicated that we were giving good advice, but unfortunately there was a substantial disagreement as to the future of online gaming there, and it just wasn't possible to sustain the relationship.
To be honest, I used that time for relaxation mostly, even though my brother and I had already decided to start Destination Games.

Yahoo's wired games are already immensely popular, and while they may not take advantage of all the interactive and communicative possibilities the mobile platform offers, they reflect the potential of casual games in the mobile space -- something that's easy to pick up, easy to play, and can be enjoyed quickly.
They're heavily weighted towards puzzles games that are easy to learn, maybe a little harder to master, don't require a lot of time or involvement -- lest somebody's boss walk by, of course.
While Yahoo's gaming ambitions may realize a further merging of the wired and wireless Internets, its current mobile games site makes it look like the company takes a divergent pricing strategy, choosing to charge for its mobile games.

 IGN: Hands on: Freekstyle
The company continues their partnership with Electronic Arts, and one of the more promising games in Destination Software's line-up is its impressive GBA rendition of Freekstyle.
The game is fast and smooth even with four polygonal bikes and riders on screen; we're sure that the size of the polygonal objects (much smaller than the characters in Dave Mirra and Aggressive Inline) has something to do with it.
The developers put a good amount of realistic handling into the game, as the bikes tend to skid and slide around curves...kicking up tire tracks in a very neat effect.
