campaign, but there was a ring of truth in it. Other genres are definitely out there -- post-apocalyptic, sci-fi, and so on -- but the fantasy genre is still the king of MMO Land.

So does it get to be too much after a while? Do you need a break from wings, mages, and mythical creatures? There have always been alternatives
lurking here and there, but with the growing popularity of alternatives such as Fallen Earth
, Champions Online
, and Star Trek Online
it seems that maybe the industry is suffering from a bit of fantasy burnout of its own.
