Someone should re-make WoW/The Sims, with the Mac OS interface, aimed at 5 year olds looking for ‘fun’ mail delivery grinding. Then it should be called ‘next gen’, because the future of MMOs is to make everything ‘optional’, even if ‘fun’ is not an option.
“The first MMO that does not require combat to level up.” EVE clearly does not exist, and neither does UO, and no doubt other examples. Why even throw something so blatently wrong out like that in a official video?
Honestly, THIS is the future of MMO gaming? Originally this was a list of things we have already seen in MMOs out today or 10 years ago, but as that was getting long, so lets try this. What was shown that was NEW to the MMO scene? What is so amazingly ‘next gen’ here, aside from the fact that they managed to release a video that is both inaccurate and incredibly boring? (hint: don’t release a preview video that shows nothing but running around in an area everyone will associate with a starting area for WoW just to reach the ‘optional’ star collecting grind)
