It was bound to happen...

Last year at Digital Hollywood, I chaired a panel discussion on the future of MMOG's. I asked panelists to close with some bold predictions of the future for the next 5 years.

3 of 5 panelists had one of their predictions as something along the lines of "There will be a big successful of sex-theme based MMOG".

Now there's Sociolotron. Brought to my attention via Jane at GameGirlAdvance. Not sure it's going to be successful, but it's a step in that direction.

Not sure how I feel about it. I'm glad to see experimentation within the genre - something beyond 'men in tights', but I'm also worried this will further add to the negative perception that games have (i.e. more GTA3-style grief).
