To the Ancient Gaming Noob, this is a complaint about Twitter.
To me, it's a complaint about how far the gaming industry has fallen from its heyday in 1985. That Garriott is reduced to spamming about Ipad casino poker is only a symptom of the disease. I forget whether George Lucas destroyed my childhood with the Phantom Menace, or Garriott destroyed it with Ultima IX (both were released in 1999), but I remember that, whichever one came out second, it wasn't that big a disappointment.
None of this is to say that I don't hate Twitter, almost as much as I hate the Phantom Menace and Ultima IX.
