Why Ask?


It occurred to me today that whenever I'm interviewed in my capacity as "father/grandfather/great-grandfather of virtual worlds/MMORPGs/MMOs", I'm almost invariably asked which of the commercial virtual worlds I like best. For the past 3 or4 years, I've always replied that from a design point of view my favourite is EVE Online. OK, so it has a 6-month learning curve, but apart from that...

The thing is, this response almost never appears in the resulting write-up.

So ... why am I asked?
