Dana Massey: A Wild West MMO

Dana Massey: A Wild West MMO

In his debut column, Dana Massey laid out a host of historical settings that would make good MMOs. People seemed to respond most to the idea of a Wild West MMO, so in his sophomore column, Massey lays out what he'd like to see in a potential Wild West game.

Reputation, though, would be the ultimate backbone of the game. Players would harvest reputation through deeds in the world. Each time they hunted down someone more famous or pulled off some heist, they’d rise up the ranks and get closer to the most famous guy in the Wild West.

As players earned more reputation, this would do more than just give them bragging rights. Different schemes within the world would require a group leader of a certain reputation to attempt. The more insane the scheme, the more famous a leader does a band out outlaws require. So, while players could stick up wanderers at an early level, a train heist requires someone with much more fame under their belt to even undertake.
