Books vs Movies

MUDs are to graphical MMOs as stone tablets are to movies

MUDs are more like stone tablets.

The folks over at TMS love their books vs movies analogy when it comes to MUDs and graphical MMOs, but I’m not so sure that it’s very accurate.

If World of Warcraft is a movie then your average text MUD is not a book.

Fallen London is a book. Mafia Wars is a book (albeit a children’s book with simple words).

MUDs are more like stone tablets, or in the case of those horrible stock Diku clones a few letters on a cave wall scrawled in excrement.
