Nowadays when I try to read website content, there is little to read. Just video ads followed by video content. No one seems to want to read anymore. [That's part of why I am here - because of the written content].
Mmorpgs cannot be immune to this trend. I expect any parts that you need to read will get shorter and shorter, eventually to become near non-existent.
At the same time, games like EQ2 and SWTOR have lots of cut scene video content, and people complain about that too.
So in the war between less words and less videos, who will win? Or will a new contestant enter the ring?
EQ1, EQ2, SWG, SWTOR, GW, GW2 CoH, CoV, FFXI, WoW, CO, War,TSW and a slew of free trials and beta tests
