If you’ve never played a MMO that includes a lot of sandbox-options, do check out the video below. It’s from Stargrace, who has put a lot of effort into her Norrathian Museum in EverQuest 2. And when I say a lot, I mean a lot. Be sure to watch at least until she gets to the library, which contains not only books from the game itself, but more than 100 books written by players. Awesome stuff.
I truly hope that MMOs will return to implementing things like this, since it brings so much immersion and personality to a game. Looking forward to seeing more videos of EverQuest 2 from Stargrace, since I don’t enjoy the rest of the game very much myself.
(It seems like YouTube managed to mess up the sound of the video a bit, so it doesn’t synch all the way through. Not a big deal, though.)
