IncGamers: MMO Weekly 04/08/09

Jeff Hollis is back, and this time he's looking at the reasons Sci-Fi MMOs fail.

"Hello there, my fellow avatar jockeys, and welcome to this week's futuristic edition of MMO Weekly. In this week's epic installment, we'll take a hard look at some of the more intriguing sci-fi MMOs of the past few years. We'll also examine why they failed, and why sci-fi MMOs generally fare quite poorly.

"Fare quite poorly" doesn't accurately describe the state of things though, does it? Perhaps a bit more accurate would be the phrase "die a horrid death." If you're a lover of sci-fi, and you find yourself endlessly hoping for a juicy sci-fi MMO to sink your teeth into, you know exactly what I mean. Sci-fi MMOs just don't do very well - and usually go under- especially compared to traditional fantasy MMOs."

Hellgate is one of my favourite games, really..

Well, it WOULD have been, if it had WORKED and not FLOPPED :(

Edit: Also, she is hot, and yes, that is an official pic.

OMG OMG OMG OMG a game with nudity in it :D
Leord  +   1820d ago
There is no actual nudity in the game. It's the Playboy special concept art they made.
thetamer  +   1820d ago
I'd like to see more Playboy concept art in games. Suggestions anyone?!
AndyA  +   1820d ago
Well, I'm shocked.
thetamer  +   1820d ago
She really is quite hot. I couldn't not slap her on, she can be slapped on anything as far as I'm concerned

Sci Fi MMOs fail? EVE, that's all I'm going to say.
thetamer  +   1820d ago
Jeff pointed out that EVE was an exception. Which it is.
Chazmers  +   1820d ago
thats a great way to sell a game, slap a picture of a lass naked on it.
LoaMcLoa  +   1820d ago
o.O
BOOBIES!
Panthers  +   1820d ago
Well, I certainly hope that Star Wars TOR breaks this trend. I trust BioWare to do that.

Nice pic BTW.
