sooooo making expensive blockbuster games that need to be in the top 10 to break even causing them to play it safe remaking the same game again and again *cough* NWN * cough* is making the industry stagnate and might not be a good idea... no objection here, i agree completely
but then "BioWare is experimenting with smaller scale MMO development", really ? adding the 12309742377th MMO to the ones in the making is not causing stagnation ?
how many mmos can a gamer play at the same time ? i doubt its more than 1, development
are they really any different from each other ? they are all the freaking same game
server maintenance and troubleshooting staff for that are cheap ?
the constant postrelease development required to stop players from running away to a new game (and many will leave anyway) is cheap ?
a few stupid mistakes coupled with arrogance and your investment is down the drain just look at APB, it seems to me this path will erode the consumer base much faster than the older one.
Bioware, what the hell ?
