How could so few words spark so much response? Because we all like talking about fantasy vs. sci-fi vs. western vs. modern vs. everything else. Why on Earth are there so many fantasy games, books, and movies? Why do we keep seeing new fantasy MMOs announced at a 2 to 1 ratio vs. all other genres? Well, there are already half a gazillion comments at Terra Nova about it, and Moorgard has some good insight into it. I’m not sure if I’ve ever really chimed in about why we make so many fantasy MMOs, but I guess it’s time for me to enlighten everyone beyond the break.
We love fantasy.
