Would you sub $29.99 a month to a MMORPG if the game was just that incredible?

Imagine your most favorite MMORPG game ever in your head and say it exists and you play it full time every day.. And it has so much content you couldnt shake your snake at it all...Would you sub $29.99 a month to this type of game? What's the most you would pay for a monthly subscription?

Or do you think no matter how good a game is, its only worth a minimal fee?

    Only if I quit smoking to free up the extra throw away money from my budget.  I just don't think it will happen.

    $30 a month for a game that I consider perfect? Absolutely, I mean thats impossible, but in some alternate reality where something like that is possible, absolutely.

    To find an intelligent person in a PUG is not that rare, but to find a PUG made up of "all" intelligent people is one of the rarest phenomenons in the known universe.

    considering i save $60 playing mmo's instead of buying new titles that last 5-10 hours and then reselling them to gamestop for $15 (assuming they're not even pc games, which are a full loss), mmo's are well worth a sub.


    personally, i'd pay $50-60 a month if the game ran flawless, content being streamed non stop, 24 hour support.


    (not even getting into what my dream mmo would be)

    50-60$ a month for a perfect game no problem, already paying more for games that dont last a week.

    If it would be perfect? Yes.  That's impossible though.


    Realistically for game that would not be perfect but would be kind of mmorpg I like and would be good solid game. 22-23$ would be what I could pay.  Absolutely no microtransactions though.

    hell no. $15 bucks is plenty

    Yes, but it would have to be a truly mind-blowing game. Like something I couldn't stop myself from playing all the time.

    15€ (~19$)/mo is more than enough we EU-folks have to pay currently. - now totally F2P no cash-shops or micro transactions at all.

    Any game that would keep me from posting on this site?!?!? Yes I would pay the 29 bucks for that !
  • WhiteLanternWhiteLantern Nevada, MOPosts: 2,712Member Uncommon
    No. Current box + sub fee is pushing the boundries of what I'll put up with. It kept me out of the genre for many years in the beginning. Just because I can pay it, and the dev wants me to pay, doesn't mean I should pay it.

    I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

    Easy answer  NO!!!

    Sure, if I thought the game was worth $30 a month, I'd pay it in a heartbeat.  Same with $50.  Same with $100.  Money isn't an object, the game just has to be worth it.

    Unfortunately, most games today aren't worth $15. a month.  Or $10.  Or $5.  Or free, honestly.

    Played: UO, EQ, WoW, DDO, SWG, AO, CoH, EvE, TR, AoC, GW, GA, Aion, Allods, lots more
    Relatively Recently (Re)Played: HL2 (all), Halo (PC, all), Batman:AA; AC, ME, BS, DA, FO3, DS, Doom (all), LFD1&2, KOTOR, Portal 1&2, Blink, Elder Scrolls (all), lots more
    Now Playing: None
    Hope: None

    Id pay that for vanilla WoW or a decent version of RYL...

  • HycooHycoo OsloPosts: 217Member Uncommon
    For my dream mmorpg, yes.

    honestly 30 bucks is a tad rich for me on a game. i have to rationalize droping 30-60 bucks on a game as it is. even if its preorder (which is rare now...thankyou fking devs for the garbage you sold)

    but honestly if we are thinking about this.. in a magical dream world.. then maybe. 

    if money isnt an issue and the game fullfills 110% of what it promises, launches without a single bug. no cheats no problems just perfection. then i could see my self paying that. 

    though i get gamer ADD so its very rare for me to p2p mmos anymore. most dont hold my attention for more then a month  30bucks would require almost 24/7 playtime to make the price worth it at times. even if it was perfect, price would still have to be met with value of time.


    and catbert if you are talking about "risk your life" as a perfect mmo... while i would love to see that game come back.. what it offered is so lacking to standards today :(  shame its gone

    Is that about £20 if so yes, but..

    Needs to be hybrid mmo, taking list of influence from the best themepark - daoc and the best sandbox - eve

    Original setting, like say late 19th early 20th century steampunk / horror / mystery, with a political / doomsday element regarding 1914.

    Or something equally cool and bloody new, rather than a substandard wow rehash.

    Hell fecking no!  I might pay $15 or a bit more if it was my dream game, but then it could have no micro-transactions what so ever including xpacs, cash shops, paid renames, and the rest of that sort of bunk.
    Centuries ago, in primitive times, before the dawn of civilization, there were things that would be inconceivable to us today; such things as poverty, disease, violence, senility, and love.

    This should have been a poll question.


    Yes.  If everything was the way that I want it.

    I'm pretty sure that would apply to your 'dream scenario'...


    I personally don't see the fault in paying $30 a month for the perfect game.  


    We pay $60 for games that we beat in a matter of days.  It seems like the most logical way to spend your gaming money.

    Something along the lines of original EQ up to Velious with modern graphics , with tons of added GM active support actively banning the trolls spamming chat with obvious racist/overly vulgar etc unnecessary chat.
