Finally; looks like were going to be spared the crap from now on and won't be seeing any new MMORPGs with subs. Sure; we have Wildstar holding out on us for the time being, but... "times change."
Which brings up a more important topic: the decline of the traditional MMORPG.
You remember them; Everquest, Ultima, FFXI, EVE, GW, WoW, AoC, WAR... now no one's making them anymore. Or, if you have a vastly broader definition of the word 'traditional', then that'd be "very few people are making them anymore."
Twas a glorious age of when we considered a static world full of NPCs spawning in set positions and a story that only progressed whenever we completed a quest to be that "living world" stamped onto that cardboard box we paid money for. A generation of sitting around for several minutes in between fight eating food and chatting while we waited for our mana to regen. An era where we made corpse runs and paid repair bills and ludicrously inflated economies as Chinese slaves rushed in to farm gold...
Let's pout together.
OT: What do you think? The genre is falling, soon to be forgotten. Sure; FFXI, EVE, and WoW will still be out there, years from now, manning the lighthouse, but they are all that'll be left. We'll be the guys ten, twenty years from now telling our children of the good 'ole days of mindlessly grinding away our lives as if we were reminiscing about lemon cars from the '60s.
Will you miss it?
