Every year, a gazillion new MMO’s are released. Well alright, “a gazillion” might be somewhat of an exaggeration, but it’s a fact that the genre grows every year. One of the reasons for that is that the definition of the term “MMO” gets broader and broader. When even SimCity dares to call itself an MMO, we know we’ve gone too far.
Anyway, with all these titles in the making, there are a few that have piqued my interest. That’s not too hard: the right words and a few nice pictures, and you’ve won me as a customer. However, being disappointed by several games in the past, I have become somewhat…cynical. My enthusiasm is dampened, and I watch the hopes of the future with care. Today, I want to share with you the three games that I have laid my critical gaze upon, and tell you why I have so much hope for them, but also why they could fail big time.
