You know, I never really got into that whole Massive Multiplayer Online thing. I don’t have the bandwidth for it (ag… dialup! I hate dialup!). Besides, I do not like the idea of paying a monthly fee for a game on top of the $50 price tag. I’m a casual player so I’d rather buy a single player offline game for the same price, and enjoy it without some monthly commitment.
It seems that there is one more reason not to start playing multiplayer online games:
For the past few weeks, Massive Inc., a New York company that distributes ads in videogames, has been testing an ad with full motion and sound in a science-fiction game called Anarchy Online. Today, Massive will roll out the full-motion ad capability to advertisers generally.
Great! So now they will put adds in games? No thank you. I’ll just stay with my single player/lan games without annoying advertising. Massive Inc. can kiss my shiny metal arse – I’m not gonna buy any games from them!
