The State of MMO's

MMO's are currently always in development, but the discussion around them is a maelstrom. I want to sort out some of the ideas and give some of my own. This industry definitely needs improvement.

This site is getting to the point where the articles are not worth reading anymore.  Every day, it is the same tired parade, fluff about new MMO's that are guaranteed to be mediocre (eh), obvious articles trying to be obvious (uh), or even just general fanboyism.  Over and over again, they go over the same old stuff, features, maybe some interviews from mainstream developers, or just bantering about the possibilities in a new game.  Yet, this is all old hat.

The genre is stagnating.  Everyone knows it, the administration here can't truly deny it, and the discussion of it on the forums is endless.  Yet continually, the site promotes everything to do with the mainstream, which refuses to make any real changes or take real risks, and completely ignores any articles that bother to challenge this.

Because of this, developers can easily see this site as support for their pointless descent into games that are just like the ones that came before.  How many devs actually read the forums here?  Hmf, likely very few.

At least it is refreshing to see people on this site covering more than the mainstream garbage, like this guy. If any of you out there happen to come across those on this site that challenge this norm and have decent blogs, let me know, I would like to read more interesting developments of games that challenge the status quo!

I tend to blog about MUDs. That's pretty outside the mainstream /shrug
