THE MISGUIDED QUEST FOR MMO STICKINESS

The concept of “stickiness” is always a hot topic in the MMO community — stickiness being the sum of those game qualities that ensure player retention and keep people coming back. Fans and journalists talk about it often, and I don’t doubt that MMO developers devote an enormous amount of time and money to making their games sufficiently sticky.

But this obsession with stickiness can do more harm than good, and when developers focus on retention, they risk losing sight of what really matters: making games that are fun to play.

GALAVANT: "IT'S ALL IN THE EXECUTIONS" REVIEW

By AMY RATCLIFFE

KISS THE GIRL!

 

Note: Full spoilers for the episode follow.

The Season 1 finale of Galavant began in the best possible way: with a musical recap! Unfortunately, the prisoners of the dungeon cut Jester off in mid-verse. They didn't give you any time to feel disappointed though because shortly thereafter, Sid makes a "Kiss the Girl" reference complete with music from "The Little Mermaid" (which, in case anyone doesn't know, Alan Menken worked on). Too silly? Nah, it was adorable.
