Top five mmo movies we want made

The best movies create a compelling world that the moviegoer can immerse themselves into, which is done through the use of compelling stories and interesting characters. These same trait...

Here on mmo-play, we recently explored Wildstar and tried to work out what could be changed to make the game more popular. To the credit of the mmo, NCSoft have performed a complete 180 since Wildstar's original, jumpy launch, but the fanbase never quite grew to the size that everyone initially hoped. With regular new content and events, refined servers and improved gameplay, the devs really have gone the distance to make this the best mmorpg i...
