The List: Five MMO Wishes

Posted Jun 30, 2009 by Dana Massey

The List: Five MMO Wishes

Managing Editor Jon Wood moves his weekly Tuesday list into a full on column. He kicks off things with Five MMO Wishes he'd like granted. Pretend you were in charge and could change anything at all about the MMO industry, what would it be? Read his, then discuss.

Every year, I have a tradition. It’s a bit sadistic, but for some reason, I keep doing it. I go out and buy the newest version of THQ’s Smackdown vs. RAW annual wrestling game. I don’t do it because they’re stellar games. In fact, I believe they’ve allowed both gameplay and story quality to steadily decline each year. I don’t do it because I’m a huge wrestling fan, I’m not. While I do watch casually, I’m just not that into it, fact is that the only piece of WWE merchandise I own are these damned games. I don’t do it because I have a secret crush on the girl who works at GameStop, I’m happily married and my wife says I can’t do that anymore. So, why do I drop $60 every year?

The answer is simple: I can make myself. If I have the time and the inclination, I can sit in front of that character creator for hours and create a very reasonable Jon, all 5’6” of densely concentrated awesome, kicking ass and taking names. Plus, I’ve always wanted my own theme music.

Jon's column will appear each Tuesday. Check out the full article here.
