Emotional City Of Heroes Tribute Videos Created By Fans
Yesterday City of Heroes fans uploaded two emotional tribute videos to the recently closed superhero MMORPG. Despite a petition that amassed thousands of signatures and pleas from thousands of players, City of Heroes closed its doors for good on November 30, 2012. It was a sad day for all MMO fans as City of Heroes gave birth to the now popular superhero genre, with many saying games such as DC Universe and Champions Online would not have existed without its success.
The City of Heroes Remains video shows the game surviving its ultimate apocalypse before hundreds of heroes band together to restore it:
The second video, albeit a little shorter, is just as hard hitting. The City of Heroes Memories Video shows a lone hero walking through the famous Atlas Park. He bids farewell to some of the games most beloved characters before heading into Paragon City Hall and rekindling the memories of yesteryear
I played City of Heroes for about 2 years back when it first launched and despite having little interest in it since, I found these videos to be truly heart warming. Great quality video editing and a master piece selection of music sets a fitting tone for the closure of such a beloved MMO game.
