Two of my favorite MMOs, Lord of the Rings Online and The Secret World, share an unusual but interesting trait: They both have interactive theaters that encourage players to be part of the stage experience.
While I am not the world’s most consummate theater goer, there’s something about in-game plays that interest me. Giving players tools to entertain each other while adding to the aura of normal (non-combative) life in towns is fun and immersive. I’ve only been part of a play maybe twice in my MMO career, but it was kind of a rush to know that people were watching me perform for them.
Have you ever been part of a play in an MMO? For a bonus question, which MMO has the best support, tools, and settings for player-run theater performances?
