The Secret World should’ve been a single-player RPG

Bitmob - I figured out The Secret World's secret about six hours into my free trial last weekend.

Ironically, it happened while I was trying (and failing) to puzzle through one of the massively multiplayer game's unique "investigation” quests -- riddles that call to mind the graphical adventures of the '90s, even requiring real-world research.

I pondered the clues I had been given (a fire, a murder, a jail cell) as I tromped across Kingsmouth, the misty, undead-infested New England town that serves as the game's first zone. As I walked, a revelation occurred to me...one that had nothing to do with the quest at hand. (PC, The Secret World)

Considering all the source material they have to have, The Secret World probably could have been a general franchise that detailed some random character's entry into it, or a major event like a town being attacked.

Instead they had to go with the current multiplayer/subscription fee trend to make one average game.
