I recently posted the thread/poll below asking people what aspect of an mmo people most enjoyed.
The results so far and conversations within have helped affirm my own thoughts and brought me to this new thread
I dream of a world where games are more than roles we act out, of a virtual world that asks nothing of us. In our everyday lives;
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all players are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
Life is a perfect game, a game should likewise be a perfect life.
Such a world would hold us in its arms, but never so tightly as to strangle and deflate us.
You may state that such games already exist, but do they? A game in which you have the right to not bear arms, yet at the same time can take them up for what you hold dear. A world willing to let you find your own way, no matter what it may be.
Do you know what a self determining gaming genre without the strictest roles we have taken as fact would be called? I do not.
Such a genre cannot exist while we sit on idle hands waiting for this age of programmed destiny to end. Let me hear you, let everyone hear you, your voices full of sorrow. The voices of those who have had a dream crushed by the cold indifference of money and it's influence on those who decide our fates.
Tell me now, what is our future and what is its name?
If a butterfly learnt to speak, to live in human society, paid its bills, had a job, lived in a fancy house and married a human, is it human?
Now what if that same butterfly knew how to write code better than any human and had years of experience in the game industry, would that make it a game designer?
If u wouldn't let a construction worker design your house, then why let a programmer design your world?
