Re: Games and all things related
Unfortunately, it costs a lot of money to run an MMO, which means companies go after the biggest player base, which is WoW.
I believe there's a market out there for an MMO which aims to get people who like the idea of massively-multiplayer games, but hate the reality. The problem is, there's a good chance it would be a small-budget affair, which is difficult to finance, ironically.
Planetside 2 and Mechwarrior Online are coming out this year, though. So there is hope. Mechwarrior I am hyped as fuck for, and Planetside has a lot of potential, and a guaranteed playerbase from the first game. Both are massively multiplayer, and F2P, and both are trying something different that hasn't seen massive success before.
