5 game franchises that deserve the MMO treatment
MMORPGs have been around for quite awhile now, though recently it seems that plenty of developers have been rushing to jump on the profit train, spurned on by the growing popularity of the Free-to-Play (F2P) model, as well as the success of franchise-inspired titles like DC Universe Online and Star Wars: The Old Republic. Personally, I'm extremely excited that Sega is finally pushing out a true sequel to Phantasy Star Online (playable on the PS Vita and Android phones no less), and the recent announcement of a planned Elder Scrolls MMO has set the series' fanboys into spastic fits of jubilation. Seriously, if there's an Elder Scrolls fan in your house, you'd do well to read up on what to do in case of a seizure (keep a wallet handy).
Anyhow, though there are countless MMOs out there already, it seems like there's always room for more. That's why I'm taking a look at five gaming franchises ripe for the treatment. Do you agree with these picks?
