I made this account because I was tired of all the generic negativity surrounding a game we know little about.
As a background I've played several MMOs. Ultima Online being my favorite past time, and Darkfall being my favorite vision thereafter. Played Guild Wars2, was slightly original and nice for a while but got old. Tried several others but they couldn't keep my attention. Originallity is key for me.
To these generic comments, "It's not a sanbox game", "It's a WoW clone", "It's just a theme park". Seriously people what are you talking about? What are you basing this on?
What is a sandbox game? Would that be something where you can go out and create your own adventures? Like going to collect material and wondering across a monster you must protect your self from, coming across a shaddy charater and deciding whether or not to help them, diving into a cave to see what treasures it hides. What is you definition of sandbox exactly?? There isn't a story path you must follow like fable, this is an open world. This isn't a theme park, you aren't forced down paths. You could be a cave diver your entire stay and be rewarded for it.
It's a WoW clone? Really? The stupid game where you click on something and hit buttons, waiting for timers. For one thing that is a recipe that WoW definetly did not create. So quit calling games WoW clones in the first place. This game seems it will require you to aim and jump and move. If anything call it a Darkfall clone, which I would be happy to do. For now don't call it anything because we don't know enough.
None of the detail are known enough, so perhaps it rediculous for me to make these counter arguments. But I just don't know where all these labels are coming from unless you just want to be a hater.
I might end up hating this game, but I'm not going to bash it when its obviously something that is somewhat oiginal if you've read or watched anything about it. Its certainly not a target something and press buttons MMO where you must stay in line to play the game. I see it just as free and challenging as TES games have been, why think differently.
PS. Please have player housing (fingers crossed).
