Hello, my fellow avatar jockeys, and welcome to this week’s edition of MMO Weekly. This week’s MMO Weekly is, as you may have guessed by the title, about the plight of the aging MMO. Let me digress, for a moment, with a mea culpa. One of the things I try to do with this column, each week, is do a bit of analysis of the MMO industry, games, and players. In months past, I argued that WoW was making itself very vulnerable, because it had emphasized hard core raiding (and other very substantial grinding) as its end game content. This was suicidal. Since this alienated the average player, the addictive love for the game had faded. People howled in protest when I wrote this, but within a few short months, even my biggest critics were agreeing with me.
