The Daily Grind: Do you have a ‘white whale’ in MMOs?


And no, I don’t mean whale in the sense of MMO players who spend way too much money on games. I mean in the original metaphorical sense of a difficult or obsessive goal, the one that got away, the thing you’re always chasing and can’t quite catch.

I feel like I’ve been chasing the perfect economy MMO sandbox my whole dang life. You know, an MMO that has both good crafting and a robust economy at the same time, with all the other trappings to entertain me when I’m tired of that and entertain other people who aren’t really into that kind of play to begin with. The ones that exist are good, but every one of them is missing some key element that stops it from being perfect.
