With all these supposedly (because I have not really played any of them) innovative games coming out, I am actually starting to prepare myself for defeat. The last time this many huge revolutionary titles were announced it was back with WAR and AoC in I think 07.
That year was so disappointing for the MMO genre in general. I'm not saying either of them are really bad games in general, but that they set themselves up so high only to knocked off their high horses by themselves. What really got me peeved was some of the higher-ups of WAR came onto G4 talking about how innovative and frekkin' incredible their game was going to be and how different it was than anything else in the world. They of course didn't say that exactly, but that's the just of it.
The fact that the game was not terribly different and seemed a little uninspired only made me weep in anger at all my lost hype. I really just want to go over to NCsoft, Bioware and all those other studios and scream at them for an hour about what they are setting themselves up for.
They had better be ready for this.
I'm preparing for the worst.
Don't get your hopes up.
