Just in time for our anniversary, G4 is running a three-part history of the Wing Commander series this week! It's one of the best articles I've seen--a serious, professionally researched history with comments from series creator Chris Roberts! Part one is available here and part two is here. The third part, an interview with Chris Roberts, should be posted later today.
Wing Commander’s revolutionary approach to narrative presentation helped pave the way to the modern video game industry, and its design continues to influence game development to the present day. In order to help us celebrate the legacy of this famed franchise, creator Chris Roberts granted us his first games-related interview in over a decade. G4 is proud to present: The History of Wing Commander.
