I always found it weird that bookstores always shoved science fiction and fantasy subgenres together, kind of like a “here’s a general section for geeks but we’re not going to try to differentiate between any of it.” I’ll acknowledge that there is a lot of crossover and flow between the two, even when it comes to MMORPGs.
Recently I’ve been searching for a sci-fi title to scratch that spacefaring burning in my soul. Elite: Dangerous has proved problematic without a joystick, and EVE Online is far too hardcore for my tastes. Maybe No Man’s Sky is finally ready to check out? Perhaps. At least there are more space sims and futuristic MMOs on the way!
Do you find that your tastes tilt toward sci-fi or fantasy in your MMO gaming, or are you balanced right in the middle?
