Massively Opinionated: Which MMO should never have existed?


The MMO industry, much like any other entertainment industry, is full of wonderful people as much as it’s full of really odd people. And our host Larry Everett has pulled in some long-time gaming journalists to talk about some of the fun and odd things that have happened in the industry.

Larry asked Jason Winter of MMOBomb and our own Brendan Drain to debate industry shocks and the things — and games– that should never have happened in the MMO genre.

The rules are simple for this debate: Our panelists were given four questions to consider before the show. The host will award one point per question for the best argument, and the panelist with the most points at the end wins… the internet!

This week’s questions

1. What’s the most shocking thing that an MMO developer has ever done?

2. Which triple-A (or close enough to triple-A) MMO should never have existed?

3. If money and profit were no object, which studio would make the best MMO?

4. Take an existing game, revamp its payment model, and make it better. Which game would you pick, and how would you make its payment model better?
