    I found this article today and thought it was a good read. It is focused on why WoW dominates the market, and where the growth avenues are for game makers. I especially liked Ralph Kostner's advice to game designers:

    The article also mentions browser based games - specifically Dofus, MapleStory and Runescape, and highlights Kostner's builder/publisher site, Metaplace.

    Yeah... there's no innovation at all. It's very very very very sad.
  3. I beg to differ, sir! I would like to present Pirates of the Burning Sea as evidence to the contrary.

    While it is undoubtedly a 'niche' game at this time, it is chock-full of the innovative goodness made possible by its independent development team (Flying Lab Software).

    POTBS isn't innovative at all.
