Star Wars Galaxies, Eve Online, Albion Online and What Makes the Sandbox MMO So Compelling

This week Brett and Walker dive into the rich and storied history of the sandbox MMO. While many games have fallen into this space, Walker shares his stories from his time in Star Wars Galaxies, Eve Online, and Albion Online. The sandbox MMO offers markets, stories, and gameplay options that feel almost limitless when compared to the traditional theme park MMO. The grind can be intimidating but for some the rewards are worth it for years on end.
