One sunny spring day I took my kids on a tour of the local red light district and indicated to them a sex worker. I said 'that person is a prostitute, you must never ever disrespect her.' I cannot properly describe my pride as they proclaimed that they certainly never would do so.
I have played / trialled pretty much every MMO there is and I can tell you that every MMO host has a common fault in their philosophy. They believe that we want a world that is simple and predictable. That is what our pathetic simpering politicians think we want. Human inclinations are far more tribal, we care for our own and fear the unknown. I can not wait for the belated epiphany of the MMO creators when they give us the gratifiying gritty world that we fantasize about as we do the daily office grind lol.
Working your way up to becoming THE hero following a quest ant-trail has been done to death and is obsolete. It's time to take it to the next level. Modern programing can cope with it. It's time to make MMO's a truely personal experience. Everyone is different and we need a personal fantasy journey for genuine gratification. If an MMO creator wants to take that next bold step they need the courage to enter that unknown land where the complex nature of human interaction leads the game.
Tribes may grow or diminish. Tribes can own a territory and receive it's income and defensive benefits. A tribe's progress can affect the world.
What do you folks think?
