All the new releases seem to be heading south, games like Rift, Star Trek online, Star Wars online, fuck even Guild Wars 2. I'm too ill and probably too poorly educated in the matter (despite being wrapped up in it all for the past 10 years) to create a meaningful fucking post but the whole genre is becoming a dead horse; getting beaten, maimed and ejaculated on. WoW is still pretty much a success, despite the dropping of numbers. However, the games is still at the reins of the franchise. It's no doubt because the whole series has been out for so long now, had major lore developments and just overall polish that it now holds a monopoly over the Genre.
I don't think there will be any new 'revolutionary' MMO's to ever be created, not without breaking the genre completely and creating something new. Fuck, look at FFXIV, that failed completely and the dumb shits are now re-releasing another turd; making it more 'WoW like'. Which is a fucking waste of time, money and effort; I bet the game fails within the first 3 months and it goes F2P like so many others *cough* SWTOR *cough*. Elder scrolls will no doubt be the same, and oh... that's a big fucking mistake, fans will be expecting something similar to Skyrim online; not some standard MMO using the Hero engine??(same engine as swtor, buggy as cum. There are no WoW killers, there are no new MMO's to get hyped about; fuck the entire genre in it's infested anal cavity.
I think it became apparent that shit was getting real when FFXIV was released.
I remember watching this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgtZvn5c4e4
and thinking; shit this looks awesome! finally, maybe an updated FFXI! Too bad it turned out to be copy and paste maps with XP locks and colloquial text which was batshit hard to read. Fuck you MMO, FUCK ALL OF YOUR BULLSHIT RELEASES.
...well, that being said I guess i'll go level my frost mage.
tl'dr: Fuck you
