New Vanguard Editorial: MMO Failures

Posted Thu, Feb 02, 2006 by Ethec

MMORPG Failures Examined

In today's editorial at the TenTonHammer: Vanguard community site, Eliana takes a look at a current hot topic from the Official Vanguard Forums. The question posed on the thread is "Which MMO were you the most disappointed to see fail?". She looks to find the reasons why some games just cease to entertain us.

A recent discussion thread on the Vanguard Forums asked which massively-multiplayer online game (MMOG) people were the most disappointed to see fail.

"Which MMO were you the most disappointed to see fail?"

The thread had me thinking wistfully about the golden age of EverQuest, when EQ, along with Asheron's Call and Ultima Online, introduced the fantasy worlds of the massively-multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) for the first time. EverQuest, I'm sure, seemed unstoppable. I doubt that many of us who played beginning with beta testing or launch ever dreamed that, even though Norrath might live on, our avatars might not. I know that I didn't anticipate graduating from the Plane of Time to the Plane of Disappointment!
