After many days of typing up part 4 I trashed it. I just couldn't post it. Why - you may ask. Read below.
You know I can sit here and tell you all these wonderful ideals for what I would consider to be my dream MMORPG, but in reality, and in the end, it is all just a dream. Sure I can look back over the years at all the other MMORPG's I have played and say, "If this game only had this and this it would be perfect." or "If the game designers did this and changed that...omg this game would truly rock." And I have many times, but the truth is, we will never have our dream MMORPG even if we designed it ourselves. There would always be something we'd like to change or tweak or add to make it that much better. I dunno what the future holds for us in this genre. If changes come it seems to come slowly. One thing I do know and that is that someday a game designer will eventually create a game I will enjoy playing. It may not ever match up to what my dream MMORPG would be like, but if it manages to allow me to escape into a world of fantasy for a few hours a week and have "fun" doing it - that is all I can ever really ask for - to just have fun.
