The only MMO with any real vision, as far as I can see, is ArcheAge. Here's hoping it will be a success - and they find a decent US publisher. I don't dare put my hopes up for an EU publisher yet, but it looks like it could be one of the first "asian" MMOs with a very wide appeal.
Bliz have always been about the mainstream audience, but somehow - I think they used to keep the creative vision intact with a strong design integrity. A very rare thing, and I don't know another company that succeeded in that very strange combination.
But given their recent efforts, and in particular the laughable Panda thing, I don't see any integrity that will get my hopes up for Titan. I think they've grown too complacent - and they don't seem to have the same creative drive as they used to.
They're pretty much just extremely competent craftsmen with the emphasis on the business side of things now. Not really my thing.
