Regardless of either Genre, the state of MMOs is in turmoil due to one main factor. Somewhere along the road of this great invention we call online gaming, someone decided that it was En Vogue to be a complete jerkoff to total strangers. As soon as its not cool to be a dick to the neighbor you haven't even met yet, MMO's will become fun again, for this gamer at least.

I disagree with your comment about science fiction games forcing you to think. I contend that both science fiction and fantasy games alike can be enjoyed without setting aside a score of mental faculties. In other words, both genres can be enjoyed while cooking dinner, watching TV, and facebooking all at the same time. While the scifi gaming genre may deal with rocket science, any 6th grader can excel at the helm of one of these mindless games.
