I know this may be a little late to the party, but I was checking out the interview of rift's CEO. Maybe it's just because I'm tired of the whole "Om nom nom nom nom" gimme your moneys for as minimal effort as possible! approach to the whole MMO genre after the craze brought on by "that game I wont mention" hit such a large population.
I don't know, but I'm really feeling motivated about the future of the MMO genre when you have a game with a community growing by the day, and a direction that aims at catering to -shock- have fun while also being serious and competitive in the market.
I just remember watching the video and going.... omg some one finally gets it! How did we drive so far away from that little thing called "fun" or "entertainment" and turn it into greed with out content. I don't know about you guys but I feel like the Rift team is trying their best to put their all into the game so they can break into this market and get things done in a way that can be fun, because fun is far more addicting and long duration than empty grind.
What do you think?
