Leaderboard: Where did all the City of Heroes players go?
Based on the comments under Justin’s Perfect Ten on City of Heroes memories this past week, a lot of folks out there in our audience really loved and identified with City of Heroes. So I couldn’t help but wonder: Where did you all go after the closure?
I tried Champions Online again, and then DC Universe Online, but neither was quite what I was after. Marvel Heroes came closer, but it’s not a traditional MMORPG. I found myself in other games entirely. But am I missing out?
For this weekend’s Leaderboard, tell me, former City of Heroes players — what are you playing now to scratch that CoH itch? I’m going to include superhero MMOs and a smattering of other games readers and colleagues have mentioned to me, but you can pick more than one and tell us in the comments if we’ve omitted your favorite!
