  1. I've been a gamer since PONG. I'd much rather pay a one-time, or monthly fee than suffer microtransaction pay-to-win.

    Kids today seem more accepting of paying for purely cosmetic items. I say, more power to them. I'll only buy a cosmetic item, if I want to give the devs some money.

  2. MMO's NEED a relatively large playerbase to survive given the ongoing costs associated with keeping the game alive.
    For this reason, their lifecycle works differently than most other games.
    Are MMO's dying?
    Yes, that's an inherent trait of the genre: they come and go.
    Are MMO's dying as a genre? No.

  3. The indie game community has this little golden rule of “don’t make an mmo” because it takes so long by yourself

  4. HAHAHAHAHA!! it's funny to look back at what we expected of mobile gaming's future.. and handhelds for that matter..

  5. 1:33 – I'd rather be in Star Treks universe than Star Wars, so you're wrong there MatPat

    Edit* Complain, Complain, COM-PLAIN!

  6. Isnt it obvious. We all grew up. MMOs were another trend that came and went. Just like modern shooters, battle royals, and dark souls type of games.
