Sometimes I wonder if MMOs have really lived up to their potential. From my first steps playing a text MUD and realizing that some of those other characters were controlled by people like me, these games captured my imagination. The fun diversion became a deep fascination with multiplayer gameplay and game mechanics and eventually a career. But, when I take a look at where we are now, I can’t help but think that something is missing from our games.
Have you noticed it, too?
