What's that crappy MMORPG that has graphics like that and its huge?
Basically if you going to have low graphics then you need a lot of features/quests/story to make up for it.
(partly) agreed. You need features to entice people in and keep then there, but there is no reason why lots of people won't be willing to play a small MMO with simple graphics, as long as it's fun, addtictive and they know it exists. I used to play heavy amounts of Inselkmapf, a browser based game with barely any graphics. It was small and simple but I found it very emmersive.
