The Daily Grind: Which IP should never, ever be turned into an MMO?

Oh please please please don’t ruin Farscape with a badly done MMO.

I don’t think there’s any danger of this, I hasten to point out. The old IPs currently being mined for online games – like DUNE and Lord of the Rings and Star Wars – are far more popular, far more lucrative, and far more old than an Aussie sci-fi show that peaked and winked out less than 20 years ago. And anyone trying to appeal to that specific nostalgia period and theme would probably be more likely to rummage around in Firefly (which has also kinda been done, though not so directly).

Besides, Farscape did a fine job ruining itself with season 4 and Peacekeeper Wars. It doesn’t need help from B-tier MMO studios!
