Well, it looks like they definitely had talent working for them.

It's funny, it just hit me, but I think WoW marked the end of the MMORPG golden age. I can't see any of these games being successful post-WoW. Before? Yes. The genre felt so wide-open. After? No. I can't get excited for any new MMO nowadays.

The MMO market has become stagnant because everybody is just copying the WoW formula. For the genre to be revived, developers need to try new things. Things that emphasize the whole "multiplayer" part of MMO. Players need to be able to make more meaningful choices and have more complex interactions with other players. Grinding and farming need to go away entirely. DayZ is a really good example of what MMOs should aspire to be. Player-driven experiences that explore the human condition and engage players with more than just loot and leveling.

Sounds kind of like EVE. One of the few MMOs that's broken from the formula. Unfortunately it broke from it in a way that made it far too much of a time-sink for me, but maybe that's inevitable. At least they did something different.
