In the MMO space Sandbox just hasn't done as well numbers wise. Eve is probably the most successful, and it's population is what, around 300k?

Sandbox MMOs have tended to come with some steep learning curves, and little to no themepark to guide players along the way.

I'd like to see more sandbox elements added into games, but themepark is certainly a better way to tell a story, and I think the next kind of breakout MMO will probably be one that does hybrid sandbox/themepark really well, with compelling features.
