A Critical Look at DDO

Does DDO Need to Tidy Up?

North American servers for Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach flung open their doors to welcome new gamers on February 28, 2006. Did players arrive to find a spotlessly clean game, or were there smudges on the windows and cobwebs in the corners? Shayalyn may like hanging out with DDO, but she's got a few cleaning tips for its developers, Turbine, Inc. Is DDO Martha Stewart approved? You decide!

Don’t get me wrong--I like DDO. I play it and I enjoy it. I do think that Turbine delivered on their promise to make an entertaining massively multi-player online game (MMOG) that would come as close as possible to replicating the pen-and-paper (PnP) Dungeons & Dragons tabletop roleplaying experience. I’m down with that. But...

Yeah, there’s always a “but.”

Grab a broom and a dust pan and get into Spring Cleaning at DDO - TenTonHammer!

A horribly-abused system from gaming's past is all but eradicated from current titles.
