I have been reading a lot on these forums lately and I see tons of threads dealing with definitions of MMOs, questions about what to label certain games, and amazing amout of people arguing about things that really don't matter.
I really enjoyed
and would recommend this read.
It seems that the majority of devs working on what some people call MMOs have broadened the definition -- or killed it.
I for one will pay for this game AND a monthly fee. It has strategic elements and requires skill that most typical "MMOs" don't carry. I will spare you the list as it is posted in several other threads here and there. I have played video games since PONG so I have seen a lot in my day and I have learned one thing, variety is king and "good" is simply an exercise in that persons perception.
If I buy GA or any other subscription based game ... heck we should call them SBGs instead of MMOs.. fails to live up to what I want or I deam it not worth it, I stop. Just like I stopped paying for WAR and AOC.
