What's all this fuss about?
My name is Hacki Dragon. This page is mainly about an activity called nitpicking, i.e. looking for mistakes, in the Ultima series. Ultima is a traditional classical computer roleplaying game series, founded by Richard Garriott alias Lord British in 1981. It came to its end in 1999 with Ultima IX: Ascension - The various Ultima Online spin-offs were never considered true Ultimas by fans.
As the Ultima series provides you with rich storytelling, detailed characters and a huge treasure of background information on the fantasy world, you can also find plot holes and various other errors in there with ease. But why? Easy: Just for fun!
There are currently 847 nitpicks on Hacki's Ultima Page!
Hacki's Ultima Page was once founded with the noble intention of putting Ultima IX: Ascension to shame, a game frowned upon by most old fans, and to show everyone why the older Ultimas were so much better than the last installment of the series. However, I soon opened up a nitpick archive for the older Ultimas, too, in search for completeness. This didn't change anything about my strong opinion on Ultima IX, of course.
I also began to put more general Ultima information on the site, such as articles, infos on the original Ultima IX, multimedia, a collection of press reactions for Ultima IX, and much more.
