The List this week takes a look at MMO settings that are underused, poorly developed or utterly non-existent in today's market. MMORPG.com writer Bill Murphy spends time with five different settings that he feels would bring a breath of fresh air to the MMO industry. See if you agree or if you have additions to Bill's list.
As the MMO audience continues to grow, it makes sense that there should be more diversity among the games we have at our playing disposal. In a highly competitive sector of the gaming industry, you’d think that someone out there would want to ditch convention and try to bring us some new worlds to play in. I’m not the type to believe that gamers only want fantasy or space in their MMOs. If a game is designed well, even with a niche setting, it has a chance to succeed. We’ve had a few post-apocalyptic games in recent years. And in the somewhat near future we’ll see a zombie apocalypse MMO on consoles, and two macabre settings in The Secret World and World of Darkness.
