        Here’s a few questions with the answers that I would give:

        1. What are the top one or two MMO games you have spent the most hours playing in the last 3 months?


    Ooh, bad choice of timescale. Haven’t really been playing much of any games the last 90 days.

        2. Which MMO got you hooked on MMO games?

    GemstoneIV (not an MMO at all). Didn't really do more than nibble around at MMOs until ... DAoC? CoH? (was working on GS4 and then Hero's Journey until '05-'06 or so).

        3. If you could wave a magic wand and “fix” all the problems in any one MMO (past or present), which MMO game would you fix (“fix” includes upgrade graphics and animations)?

    Probably...hmm. I’d rescue CoH, I think. Can't really explain why I liked it so much. Customization still unmatched, too hard for anything else to touch, I guess.

        4. How much money have you spent on MMO games in the last 6 months, including game client, time cards/subscriptions, gem cards, real money auctions, third-party gold or leveling services, etc)?

    $60. GW2 box just slips in (barely) under 6mos.

        5. If you could turn any setting from a book or movie into a modern MMO, designed to your specifications, which book or movie would you adapt (even if it has already been done)?

    Ringworld+Protector (Known Space), Larry Niven. But like most good SF, probably too ambitious for an MMO project.They can't ever turn most of 'em into a decent movie :/

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    1. What are the top one or two MMO games you have spent the most hours playing in the last 3 months?

    GW2 - but been in Skyrim far more (I know, I know - NOT an MMO... yet...)

    2. Which MMO got you hooked on MMO games?

    Alas, to my eternal shame, it was vanilla WoW. Before then graphics had been too primitive to interest me (EQ etc.) which I had tried and not enjoyed.

    3. If you could wave a magic wand and "fix" all the problems in any one MMO (past or present), which MMO game would you fix ("fix" includes upgrade graphics and animations)?

    Age of Conan - Funcom made a GREAT looking game with fantastic lore and combat and then did an endless hatchet job on it -utterly tragic...

    4. How much money have you spent on MMO games in the last 6 months, including game client, time cards/subscriptions, gem cards, real money auctions, third-party gold or leveling services, etc)?

    ~£90

    5. If you could turn any setting from a book or movie into a modern MMO, designed to your specifications, which book or movie would you adapt (even if it has already been done)?

    Dune or Fading Suns for scifi and Chronicles of the Black Company  or Elric for fantasy.

    Tough to see any character except Elric being at all worthwhille to play. And Elric is playing a sword, rather than a character. Stormbringer's a game-breaking deus ex machina too.

    I'd choose Fafhrd & the Mouser (Nehwon) first.

    Most of what you read in the Elric sagas (and Hawkmoon, Corum, Erekose, etc.) all made it into the essense of the D&D game. Which then influenced all the early MMO's, which influenced...well you get the idea. So in a sense you already indirectly have your Elric MMO(s).

    The Elric sagas were the first fantasy writtings I ever read and it holds a special place for me. My 1st and oldest AD&D (1st ed) character was a F/MU albino elf called, unsurprisingly enough, Elric.

    As a matter of fact I think at the back of my 1st ed. DMG it lists Elric/ Michael Moorcock as recomended reading material.
