  1. GOD. DAMMIT.

    Well, it was fun while it lasted, but it’s clearly time for us to admit that the “video game” experiment has failed and just go back to pinball and Quaaludes.

  2. I can’t wait till someone used in-game Family Guy Online MMO game mechanics to make a precasting sex video. Between Brian and Lois.

    •  No, it won’t work that way because the people who are idiots in other MMORPGs and the people who watch Fox News are not the same group.  They may be RELATIVES, but they are not the same.

  3. You know, if the goal of games like DNF and FGO are to appeal to a low standard, why not just throw Harvester in a n online emulator andf be done with it?

  4. I made the same mistake of being afraid that Sims Online would be smashing success and swallow gaming into big black hole of suck. Its spectacular failure restored some of my faith in /gaming/ humanity, and only now “social games” and “micro transactions” start to undermine it again. 

    This is fundamentally bad idea, regardless how you implement it, its a flop from the beginning.
