The Think Tank: Finding the magic in MMOs

About a month ago, a Massively reader wrote to our team to ask for help on an issue many of us -- and probably many of you -- struggle with: a genre with lots of games and not enough stickiness (and patience!). I've been around the MMO block (since EverQuest); I even dabbled in Meridian 59. And I ...

Ask Massively: Misconceptions about new, old, and sunsetted MMOs

As the editor-in-chief of Massively, I make it a point to read as many of our comments as I can.

Today's Ask Massively question comes from Kirk because he wanted to open up a can of worms all over the column apparently. Why do people have to hate on World of Warcraft so much?
