Vanguard Friday Op/Ed Discusses MMO Themes
What hasn't been done?
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. While MMORPGs have been around for several years now, it seems to me that for the most of that time, the majority of these games have fallen into the fantasy genre. This has changed in the past few years, as we see more and more games focusing on other genres.
