There are a number of good mmorpg games based upon TV shows and movies. However, using an established intellectual property does not guarantee success or quality. One essential ingredient in such an online game is a regular infusion of new content that moves the overall storyline of the game forward or tells a self-contained story arc. This factor is a perfect match for games based upon TV shows. One notable example is the Defiance mmofps where events on the show have a direct impact within the game. This format is an intriguing one, and it could be adapted to other intellectual properties on the small screen as well.
