I think the greatest story in an MMO is not the one dictated by the game but the one the player creates for themselves. It’s that which makes me worry that the new Star Wars MMO will feel restrictive after a while.
I’m not a huge EVE Online fan. I love the concept of the game but playing it just doesn’t click for me. Yet I love this player story video. It’s documentary style and it’s obvious a lot of effort and polish has gone into it, but I think it still manages to convey what players love about the game. Never before have I been so enthralled with green and red dots flying round the screen.
It’s a bit long at 37 minutes but I’ve watched it twice now and find myself wanting to try EVE again sometime.
