Even though we've certainly seen some short-lived MMOs in our time, the average lifespan and half-life of a title is still up for grabs. Considering that titles like Ultima Online
and Meridian 59
are creeping ever closer to the two-decade mark, I think it's conceivable that some of the very MMOs we play today might still be around in 20 years.
So assuming that they don't go belly-up or invent free-free-to-play-supreme editions that sinks them for good, what do you think your current MMOs might look like in the year 2032? Will we be playing World of Warcraft
in holodeck simulators, be teaching Star Wars: The Old Republic
in grade-school classrooms, or be experiencing EVE Online's
radical "walking in spaceships" feature?
