Simplicity might sometimes be its own beauty.
I logged in to one of the more 'popular' MUDs and the tutorial took me two nights, it asked me to choose from 30 classes, 30 races and over 100 spells.

Is it too much? How many brand new players are these MUDs going to attract?
I know which one he would go for if I asked my young nephew to play this or Call of Duty

Sometimes people equate variety and number/size with value. Not to digress too much, but why do womens razors have 5 blades? One or two ought to do the trick.

They were invented by a man with a grudge and a bad sense of proportion, the original plans had the blades much, much larger?

If simplicity is its own beauty then MUD players' humours shouldn't be so in-depth! Or perhaps our humours are complex because we're used to serene simplicity and thusforthwhatyamacallit is a nice change?

Do you suppose he was related to the men who invented the corset and high heels?
