"In honor of APB: All Points Bulletin’s recent demise, here is a look at some other MMOs that came and went all too quickly."
Ah, the MMO. The genre I have yet to play and will likely never play.
I was excited for a few of these while looking for alternatives to WOW. Sometimes, it seems like originality in the genre is halfway to a death sentence.
I wish Earth and Beyond would come back. *sigh* That was a great game. It just needed more content.
I thought about putting Earth & Beyond on the list, but even it had a longer lifespan than the games on this list. So did Hellgate: London, which was also a candidate. ;)
So sad, I really liked this one.
never heard of some of these before
havent played an MMO in years.
I really thinked that APB would work. It seemed incredible good on paper,but in reality...
It must really suck for someone to invest a lot of time into developing their character in an MMO only to find that it's going to end after a brief run.
The reason APB died is because it had crap marketing. The first time I had heard of APB was when someone posted a link to the human avatar videos on Twitter. It will be interesting to see if we start seeing more console based MMO's with the increase of Mac sales and PC gaming diminishing (before all the PC gamers jump in, I said it was DIMINISHING, not dead).
Tabula Rasa's been dead since February last year? ... And I was just thinking about pulling out my old discs and getting back in. Ah well, it feels nice that I own a collector's edition copy of a dead MMO. All it does now is take shelf-space, but still a nice keepsake. I had fun with the time I put into it!
