I’m pretty excited to announce a new column I’ve pitched to Massively called The Gaming Archaeologist. The idea behind it is that we as a community tend to focus on the “newer” or higher-profile MMOs while older titles get left in the corner. So to rectify that, I wanted to shine a spotlight on a different classic MMO each month, and give it a little love while discovering it for myself.
The plan is to give one week to the game’s history, one week to interview past and present players of the game, and one week of my own impressions. It’s going to be a really interesting personal journey to go through all of these titles.
This month’s featured game is Ultima Online, and you can read the first article here!
