Annoying Headline of the Day

April 2nd, 2008 by Troy Goodfellow · 4 Comments · Industry, Media

Neverwinter Nights developer shuts

If that headline popped up in your news reader, you could be a little confused since you would have heard the wailing of a million voices if Bioware disappeared. After all, almost no one remembers or thinks about the 1980s Neverwinter Nights game (a proto-MMO) that the now closed Stormfront co-developed with AOL, SSI and TSR.

Why not make a more recent and relevant reference, like their work on Eragon?

    To be fair, most of the gaming media used their LOTR: Two Towers game as an identifying title.

    I actually bought the original NWN back on AOL, but never managed to actually play it.

    Probably deliberate. Misleading (but not untruthful) headlines make for more readers!

    Gotta get those Digg clicks, and what better than a headline like this? (It also works for people using RSS feeds.)
