This year, I renew my often-flagging resolution not to look forward to things. There were three MMO releases I was looking forward to in 2009. The first made me physically ill just from looking at the graphics. If you and your friends made your own version of WoW in your garage, it would look very much like the second. The third I tried with my wife, computers side-by-side, prompting the following exchange:
“I wonder if this gets fun at any point, or if it always sucks.”
“Okay, just so you know we’re on the same page here.”
Here is to low expectations in 2010.
