I don't think it's too black and white to be as objective and factual as possible when it comes to aspects that should be objective and factual. I also recognize there are grey areas in almost everything. Even in some maths. (take that math nerds!) I also love discussion, and to learn why folks think the things they do. I'm open to the notion that I could be (and often am) wrong - just show me the evidence. It just so happens that I also state things with a reasonable amount of confidence. What does 'in development' mean if it's been going for 2 years, with no approved plan? As for EQNext, I enjoyed what lore/stories were released, but kind of tuned out when dark elves (or whatever they were calling them) showed up with dragon horns. They're already sticky enough. I agree, nostalgia is a powerful thing. And I think nostalgia is going to bite a couple titles that are in development on the butt. Folks think they want the old school days, when what they want is to feel like they did in the old school days - different things. I think if a new company, that had an actual interest in game development, could be convinced to buy the Norrath IP, nostalgia alone could create a moderately successful title with a devoted fan base. So long as the development and release were handled properly. Unfortunately the corporate shenanigans (both of them) have become intrinsically associated for a lot of folks with the EverQuest name. That being said, if such a thing did happen, I would mostly likely purchase that game - with cautious optimism.
