Six-Word MMO


Last night, I happen to be listening to Alan Colmes. I’m not a Colmes fan, but when your stuck driving a large truck at 12am and falling asleep, his ranting can help keep you awake. Anyway, his topic of discussion was the book “Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure” by Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser. The book was a project to get people to write biographies about themselves by using only a six-word sentence.

Here are some examples:

“I’m ten, and have an attitude” – Tillie Sege

“Life has gone to the dogs.” – Ted Rheingold

“Anything’s possible with an extension cord.” – BillySirr

“Danced in fields of infinite possibilities.” – Deepak Chopra

“Ex-wife and contractor now have house.” – Drew Peck

As I was listening to Alan answer calls from people offering up their own six-word messages about life, I thought, wouldn’t it be great if you could find a way to sum up an MMO in a similar way? So, of course, trying to stay awake, I came up with a few.

World of Warcraft

Wow is fun, grinding is not.

Everquest 2

Life isn’t laggy, EQ2 shouldn’t be.


We make game, you make music.

Thats all I could come up with while trying to stay awake and not crash all the companies gear. lol Maybe you could do better?
