I stumbled across this article by Jakub Wojnarowicz dated 09 July 2007, and I’m in complete agreement with the fact that game players in general are suffering from “gamer fatigue”. Everything out there has been done ten times before. We’re tired of killing x number of creature y and collecting z trophies. There simply has to be a better way. But do the developers have the ability to move into the next phase of games, particularly MMOs?
Read for yourself and see if think they can.
