I've never played, but I've only ever heard great things about the community and Fanfest! It's so good to see an older MMORPG thrive.

The digital Fan Fest during covid was great. Tickets for this one could have been handled better but I think they didn't realise how many people would be interested. Maybe there will be a way to accomodate more people next time.

And I agree it's nice to see older games still going strong.

Congrats on reaching the final stage!

I've not played FFXIV, but it really seems popular among members here.

I'm a huuuge fan of machinima (games-based filmmaking) though, so I love that they've got a video contest! 😃

Can you go back in time and tell my mother that please? Maybe I would be making game trailers now 😂 I have my old game videos still which I have done for my diploma work but that was 18 years ago and they look so bad now in resolution, can't really upload them anywhere.

Hopefully there will be more opportunities to share your work through bounties 🙂

Not sure if this would be of interest, but there's a podcast called And Now for Something Completely Machinima. Tracy (one of the co-hosts) is my PhD supervisor and she ran the European Machinima Festival back in 2007 (and now the Art-AI Festival since 2019).

The podcast dives into things like the history of machinima, platform changes (like Reallusion, Omniverse, iClone etc.), as well as reviewing episodes / series of machinima videos.

Oh this sounds interesting, I'll check it out!
