The death of the MMO?

Posted by & filed under , .

Just a few years ago, it looked as though the massively-multiplayer online (or “MMO”) genre was going to completely take over the gaming industry.  The huge success of World of Warcraft prompted a tidal wave of MMO titles, and it seemed like each month, we were hearing about a new, “genre-changing” game that was going to […]
