Today’s Bombthrowing Comes From A Veteran Grenadier

Richard Bartle, to be specific.

If you could take over control of one major MMORPG – which would you choose and what would you do with it?

I’d take over World of Warcraft and I’d close it. I just want better virtual worlds. Sacrificing one of the best so its players have to seek out alternatives would be a sure-fire way to ensure that unknown gems got the chance they deserved, and that new games were developed to push back the boundaries.

Er, I would get to do this anonymously, wouldn’t I?

Note to the gaming industry: is there some reason this man hasn’t been given a design lead position yet? I mean, you know, there are some MMO shops in the UK. Just sayin’, is all.
