The Daily Grind: Is there any dead MMO you’d play if it were resurrected by blockchain schemers?

aw hell

Earlier this month, Justin and I jawed on the MassivelyOP podcast about the revival of Kritika Online, which turned out to be an exploitative mess with a blockchain pitch. The conversation naturally turned to the implications for the rest of the industry, specifically because the Kritika whitepaper identified the game as one with huge potential because of its decade-long patch history and multi-million-person playerbase.

And that describes kind of a lot of dead or dying MMORPGs, doesn’t it? From the crypto perspective, it’d be far cheaper to just buy a beloved sunsetted or ailing MMORPG. We’ve already seen it happen. But while it’d be nice to get, say, WildStar back online, this is… not how I’d want to see it and definitely not how I’d want to play it. I wouldn’t want to see a company tarnish the legacy of an old MMO and completely kill the IP for future use to boot.

How about you? Is there any dead MMO you’d play if it were resurrected by blockchain schemers?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
