There are a plethora of free to play and a few regular pay mmorpgs created for an audience that is either very young or wants to have a very simple gaming experience that can't be taken seriously at all.
There are a few sandbox titles - the quality varies, and with Shadowbane gone I have to question the sincerity of the genre.
There is some pseudo - deranged RP out there (Goldshire on Moongard in WoW...) where themes such as college RP, family RP, erotic RP, etc exist . Sexually frustrated predators, the mentally ill, etc are covered here.
BUT...there are no mature (not necessarily M rating, I am referring to intellectually developed) mmorpgs that involve a real role-playing community set in an immersive world.
When will an RP enforced mmorpg for medieval/sci fi or whatever be created? Enforced as in, general chat is enforced by CSRs. If someone logs in and spams general and starts talking about body parts or swearing or who the best porn star is, then they get muted for said chat. Further issues result in a ban. Don't like this? Choose the games made for you that litter the genre.
What are we hungry for?
The world is ready for a Medieval fantasy mmorpg with servers that expect you to stay in character (Not necessarily 'Ye lass how doth ye fare')...I am just referring to staying in character. Nothing more, but nothing less. Feel free to speak on anything - as long as it relates to the in game world. If I am a dwarf warrior, I won't be talking about my skill tree or how cool Star Wars Galaxies used to be. I will just stay in character (REAL RP IS WHEN YOU COMMIT TO KEEPING YOUR ENVIRONMENT AS REALISTIC AS POSSIBLE...)
Give us an RP environment we can immerse in. If it's medieval fantasy. I don't want to see silly pets, pixies, and Easter egg hunts at the local inn. Crafting should include siege machines, ships, boats, casltes, walls, guild houses, personal housing, etc.
Is it too much to ask for differences between enemies?
Half of what put the medieval world at war was differences (religion, political beliefs, etc). I want variation. I don't want 5 races and 2 factions or 5 races and no factions. I don't want to fight enemies with MIRRORS of my class or classes in my faction because the developers are afraid to offend someone or make someone jealous of the opposing realms. I want to be able to recognize an enemy WITHOUT A RED NAME TAG...I should be able to look at my enemy in a fantasy setting and say, "That's a human, elf, dwarf, etc, obvious enemy..." or on the contrary, "That's a troll, dark, elf, etc."
How about Skyrim meets Medieval Total War meets Dark age of Camelot? Any developers out there that understand this would have huge appeal?
