Some may have noticed that I’ve added this link in my list in the sidebar of this blog. The Daedalus Project is indeed worth a visit, and repeated ones, even, from whomever is interested in surveys, statistics and psychology about the world of MMORPGs (Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games).
Articles and research include various themes, such as The Rise and Fall of Guilds, Communication/Relationships Skills, Elves, Ogres and Drama Queens: Stories of Digital Intrigue and Drama or Games, Life, and The Pursuit of Happiness.
If by chance you’d feel like helping with the surveys, taking part is easy and won’t take you more than a few minutes.
I’ve always found this website pretty fascinating, if only for the general behavioral patterns it has outlined over the past years. Whether it’s about EverQuest, World of Warcraft or any other MMORPG, many times they remain exactly the same—sometimes worrying, sometimes enlightening, but never boring. A beautiful sociocultural analyzis, in fact.
