The Game Archaeologist’s ultimate MMO archives v7.0

Something fell.

Once again we put a wrap on another year of MMORPG news, opinions, and — most pertinent to this column — history. In a way, Massively OP is a history book in the making as we catalogue all of the ongoing events in the industry for posterity.

As is my custom, today I want to gift to you the updated comprehensive guide to date for The Game Archaeologist. Not only will you get every column that I’ve covered in the past but also all of the new pieces from 2023. So tuck in, learn a thing or two, and broaden your gaming horizons!

Believe it or not, MMOs did exist prior to 2004! Every two weeks, The Game Archaeologist looks back at classic online games and their history to learn a thing or two about where the industry came from… and where it might be heading.
