The complete non-starter of Pathfinder Online did not surprise me. It was about what I expected, and it always struck me as one of those ideas people seemed to believe for reasons that never made a ton of sense to me. But I did back the project, because there was supposed to be a fun book that I got out of it even if it fizzled… and I never got the book, either. That part galls me much more than the game, if I’m being honest.
Then again, I also should be thankful I didn’t fall into the traps of Kickstarters that are never even going to pretend to release, or are pretending they’re not dead but simply pining for the fjords like Chronicles of Elyria. Some of you probably did. So what has your biggest MMO Kickstarter disappointment been to date? A game that failed completely to launch, or one that launched something that was disappointing, or even just one still in development hell?
