The MMOs that I've loved the most have been niche games (ATitD and Wurm Online). I can look back at the early versions of Star Wars Galaxies and City of Heroes and really appreciate what they did and I have a lot of fond memories. But over time they always become degraded and increasingly formulaic. I even feel like Teppy and Josh capitulated to popular demand in A Tale in the Desert sometimes (introducing teleportation, for instance) and diluted the game's vision in other ways like much later, introducing the terrible level system. Anyway, I wish there were more games in that niche. I keep hoping that canned solutions will help drive more exciting MMO development, but a lot of what gets made seems really derivative and inbred.
