Are MMOs as Appealing as They Once Were?


New details on the next World of Warcraft expansion, Mists of Pandaria, recently began making the rounds. Some former players are now eager to return to that world while others remain indifferent to the notion of forking over $ 15 a month to play what they feel is now a stale game. I find myself in a sort of gray area between those two: I’m always eager to see what Blizzard has come up with while also feeling less enthusiastic about MMOs in general than I used to, though I wasn’t really sure why I felt this way.

The return of the treasure chest in Mists of Pandaria, strangely enough, is what made me realize what one of my issues is: The sense of exploration in MMOs is not what it used to be.
