The Daily Grind: Is the mystique of MMO questing lost for good?

World of Warcraft is often credited with inserting questing into MMORPGs, but veterans know that classic MMOs like Ultima Online, EverQuest, and Asheron's Call all featured quests, be they simple escort quests for gold or elaborate multi-week quests for epic weapons that required a few dozen of...

Perfect Ten: MMO industry moves I didn't see coming

Despite -- or more accurately, because of -- my love for video games, I would never want to work in the games industry as a developer or what have you.

The Game Archaeologist: Checking in with classic MMOs

What's this, you say as you rub your eyes in disbelief. Is it... The Game Archaeologist, long since thought lost in his expedition to Atlantis (and the trials therein)? It is indeed, my friends. TGA has been a long-running passion of mine on Massively, but I needed a break for a while to...
