I love video games. Growing up with them since the early 70s I have a strong appreciation of the multiple forms it comes in now. The idea of having a world you can share with others persistently is attractive. I can't think of who wouldnt. And to reach that dream I would expect failures along the way in order to realize how to get it right. It just seems now we had a success and we never really left its shadow.
I ask myself why? But the answers are so apparent. They are not or for some reason can not make games. Its been reduced to a generic consumable created to maximize profits. What? When did gaming become a business? Thats another conversation I would love to have. Better yet, when did gamers know more about the people making the game than actually playing it.
Yeah I did that too. But it was more for fun bragging rights. Super Nintendo was way better than Sega's phony "blast processing" and I liked making fun of that. But when it came to games? We played them. All of them. Some of my funniest experiences were on NES. Play Dark Towers for a month then tell me how you feel.
Why do I like MMOs? Because they have a soul.
And its been missing for a loooooooooooooooooooong time for me.
