For the love of all that is Holy are ALL the new MMO's flippin some variant of japanimation, anime, pokemon, fluffy, cudly looking characters and world?

 

Man do i miss games that look like Warhammer Online, Warcraft with deep textures and beautifully crafted design. Please noone take this as a racist comment but is the Asian market just taking over new game design?

    The Secret World isn't "cutesy" like you're complaining about.  Uses the same graphics engine as Age of Conan.  Defiance which is coming out in April isn't cutesy either.

    Looks like a drunk post of mine.

    If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

    I will check out Defiance, I didnt care for Secret World. Not much into the post apacolyptic type game style.

    This thread led me to speculate on the kind of avatar people choose.

    Do PvPers choose grungier avatars than PvEers?

    Do carebears choose well carebears?

    I have no data really, just a random thought.

    I read somewhere that the reason horde are statistically better than alliance in wow is because a bigger proportion of Pvpers prefer to play evil chars, makes sense.

    rpg/mmorg history: Dun Darach>Bloodwych>Bards Tale 1-3>Eye of the beholder > Might and Magic 2,3,5 > FFVII> Baldur's Gate 1, 2 > Planescape Torment >Morrowind > WOW > oblivion > LOTR > Guild Wars (1900hrs elementalist) Vanguard. > GW2(1000 elementalist), Wildstar

    Now playing GW2, AOW 3, ESO, LOTR, Elite D

    I'm sorry did he say Warcraft was beautiful and not toonish? That's what I thought I read. The best looking game for a very long time has been LOTRO. Dunno what you'd consider toonish if you didn't think Warcraft was toonish. Odd.

    Might want to re-read the OPs post.

    That Guild Wars 2 login screen knocked up my wife. Must be the second coming!

    Most of the games being created are made by Koreans, Japanese and other Asian countries. Plus, many of them are not cutesy. Take ArcheAge for example. I've seen the trailer for that game. Looks nice and has a bad ass graphics.

    Personally, I would be happy if all future MMO's only had orcs and female castanics.  Just saying.
