Mercurie focuses his thoughts on the themes of MMOs and how they have evolved over time. He also offers what he'd like to see developed at some point.

I hope I might be forgiven for departing from the topic of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes this week, but I thought I would discuss the various genres of MMORPGs that exist, and even suggest a few genres that might make for good MMORPGs.

This has changed in the past few years, as we see more and more games focusing on other genres.
