I really don't want to appear like a pessimist, but it is really hard to blog about MMOs when there are no good MMOs around. When the companies that used to produce good MMOs start to behave like spoiled and greedy kids.
I'd almost wish it was just me. But looking at the recent update of MMOdata.net, we can see, that I wasn't all that wrong when I blogged a genre in decline some time ago.
Fortunately, every crisis is also a chance. In some way I am happy that WoW is losing subscribers. It allows other companies to step in. Maybe it will make Blizzard announce Titan at this year's Blizzcon? Mmh.. I have a bad feeling about this Titan ..
It's not that I don't have a lot of topics to blog about. It's just that it is really hard to blog about MMOs when you just can't motivate yourself to actually play one. I mean, I want to believe. I'm willing to pay hundreds of euros a month for quality games (without micro-transactions!). There are worse customers than me, really. But if the industry continues to focus on immediate profit instead of quality games with a vision, there's no way I'm going to waste my money on them.
