I'm glad that Fallout is not going MMO. I'm not disparaging MMO games, but I hate how some of my favorite single player games (Elder Scrolls, Warcraft(I enjoy the campaign)) have been turned into MMOs. I don't like paying to play a game every month. Even with the free to play wave I still like to get lost in a big world all on my own to explore and discover the stories. I look forward to sequals because I want to see how the world and stories will be developed, but not at the cost of a monthly payment, risk of server crashes, or dealing with internet assholes.
The other problem with MMO-ized franchises is that the lore will probably stay in the MMO forever. Look at Warcraft, all of the new stories are confined in WoW, effectively preventing any future installment of the franchise. I fear that Star Wars KOTOR is going to face the same fate. If there's a new game installed after the MMO, then that practically spells the death of these MMOs, doesn't it?
What do you think?
