Top five features we want added to DDO

Like quite a few gamers, I came to the virtual world of online games through tabletop role-playing games.

The top five new shows we want made into mmos

Developers draw inspiration for creating mmo games from a variety of sources. There are games based upon iconic book series (Lord of the Rings Online), movie franchises (Star Wars: The Old Republic), and even tabletop rpgs (Dungeons and Dragons Online). Yet one medium has only been used in the creation of a few online games: TV. The main two TV-inspired online games I can think of are Star Trek Online and Defiance. Outside of those two, there are...

How to tell a pay-to-win mmo

Free-to-play has become the standard revenue model for the mmo games of today. Players just love being able to try out a new game for free and play it from beginning to end. A perfect example is League of Legends, which now boasts over 100 million players a month. Yet with all the f2p games in existence, nothing gets a gamer angrier faster than hearing that something is pay-to-win. It does not matter if the p2w aspect of an online game is big or ...

Top five old school mmo features we don't miss

Older gamers often comment that the mmorpg games of the past were far superior than the online games of today. They will argue that older games were more challenging, more immersive, and featured truly inclusive communities that current games seem to lack. There can be some arguments made for such viewpoints, but I do think that older gamers often look back at old school mmo games through rose-colored glasses quite a bit. While I enjoyed my playi...
