The Ideal MMO Comes in a Familiar Package

For Independence Day, Shayalyn was granted the freedom to look beyond Vanguard: Saga of Heroes and design the MMO of her dreams. When she laid out the parameters for her perfect MMO, she realized that her ideas were not exactly visionary. In fact, they were really a bit retro...and had already been envisioned for a modern MMO platform by a company called Sigil Games Online.

Some of my co-workers tweak me occasionally for my love of the fantasy MMO genre, but I’m unashamed. Fantasy MMOs still have my attention, and probably always will. There’s something about elves and orcs and faeries and goblins that appeals to me. So far, super heroes and sci-fi have yet to capture my imagination. Historical MMOs hold some appeal, but I’m not sure I’d like to be saddled to one particular time period. Right now, I think the only thing that could pull me away from fantasy MMOs might be a game that involved time travel. A Dr. Who MMO? Color me so there! But until there’s a time travel MMO, fantasy is where I find myself drawn.
