@aparrish @aparrish It feels like another round of MMO fever, with the same companies making the same mistakes they always make when a big MMO captures the Zeitgeist. Yet almost painfully, hilariously worse because these same companies in this case refuse to call most of these "live service games" MMOs so the mistakes are sometimes self-inflicted by not even talking to their existing MMO arms on purpose b/c "not MMO". (Both Anthem and FO76 got accused of this by sib teams.)
