When Bobby talks about generic themepark MMOs that might have trouble retaining players, he is speaking from experience here.
I mean look, what’s more likely to get you to keep throwing $15 into a hole, dated-looking Pandas, or ten blaster shots to the face? A cheap pokemon knockoff sideshow, or a 2004 game with a fan-made-quality Star Wars graphical conversion? Skipping quest voiceovers or raiding with dumber-than-bots anonomous raiders? Welfare epics or welfare Sci-Fi epics?
When Bobby talks of failure, you should listen to the expert!
