I know poking fun at mass media is easy, but this article is just full of win.
It’s a good thing someone is finally going to expand the MMO market beyond the complex world Warcraft has with all those troll characters played by young male gamers paying ‘hefty’ fees.
While most people unaccustomed to MMOs might be intimidated by complex games like “Warcraft,” Hutter says trends in technology suggest the audience for simple, well-designed games will grow quickly. The runaway success of Nintendo‘s Wii proved virgin gamers will try new titles if they are easy to play, while the boom in social networks like Facebook suggests people of all ages are looking for new ways to interact online, he says.
Hutter sounds like he definetly understand the MMO market, and I’m sure all those investors will totally see a huge return on their investment. Good luck with that.
