  1. New Zealand seems like an oddball, when it comes to online games, because I don’t ever think about online games originating from there. Definitely not the first country I think of, when it comes to online games, since I generally think of Korea for MMOs (Nexon, NCSoft, etc.), Japan for console games (Nintendo, Sony, SEGA, Square Enix, Konami, etc.), or America for PC games (Blizzard, EA, etc.).

    And this article doesn’t feature a whole lot, other than The NewZealand Story which is themed on New Zealand, but doesn’t originate there since it’s developed by Japanese company Taito, and I don’t know if that game is even that popular in New Zealand.
