MMORPG.com managing editor Jon Wood recently got the chance to check out the new Mission Architect system for NCsoft's City of Heroes. Today, he shares his opinion of the system.
As I mentioned in the "Mission Architect System Overview" article, I recently had the chance to get my hands on City of Heroes' foray into the world of user generated content, the soon-to-be-released Architect System that allows players to create missions. As a result of getting to spend a day with the new system, I thought I'd share my opinions of it and offer you folks a review:
First, I simply can not say enough good things about the idea of MMOs integrating user-generated content into their games. In a world where the popularity of services like YouTube, Facebook and Myspace (services based almost entirely on user generated content), is hitting an all-time high and changing the way that we communicate and socialize, it was only a matter of time before MMOs found a way to put that user desire to build and contribute to good use.
