Ever since the tone-deaf SOE proclamation that nobody wanted to play Uncle Owen in an MMORPG, contrary me has consciously fought that very stupid idea. A whole lot of people wanted to play Uncle Owen, then and now, there and elsewhere. Star Wars Galaxies was a game half full of Uncle Owens. I spent a lot of time literally becoming a moisture farmer as my own form of rebellion. And yet, as I realized while debating with my husband a few weeks ago, the person I really wanted to be was freakin’ Lando. And most MMORPGs don’t allow that either — it’s Luke or GTFO. Such is the argument made by a recent PC Gamer article, which in its own precious mainstream way argues that “MMOs need to let you be an average Joe” to get out of the clear “creative slump” they’re in. “With their scale and permanence, MMOs give us the chance to be citizens in a make-believe world we create with the help of our fellow players.

Everyone holds a game in their memory that didn’t quite live up to that original announcement trailer. That said it is still an insanely fun time to be a gamer and blogger… and as is my tradition I sit down and write about the shows as I watch them. Electronic Arts – Saturday June 9th First up this E3 Season is the Electronics Arts conference which thankfully happened while I was gone at a family reunion. I say … [Read more...] about E3 Weekend Roundup: EA/Microsoft/Bethesda
