2. Choose Your Grinds Another thing about Guild Wars 2 most people find odd is the grinds and gear treadmills. Simply put, you aren’t expected or required to grind a lot to play the game’s latest content.

While some interesting conversation was had, I felt that there were some interesting contrasts with another panel on mitigating abuse before it happens, held by Tara Brannigan (flaregames), Nicole Lazzaro (XEODesign), Katherine Lo (University of California, Irvine), and Nova Barlow (Microsoft). Rather than just summarizing the two talks, which would be a waste of transcription efforts as you’ll be able to view them yourself eventually, I want to talk about how some of the ideas floated could affect not just the MMO sphere but society as a whole. … [Read more...] about GDC 2018: Ready Player One Now, billion person gaming, and mitigating abuse
