    If you think that, you just haven't experienced better end game content. 

    Before you've experienced every endgame there is to experience, you should avoid saying subjective things like this.

    SWG pre-cu or UO. Both games had something that I haven't found in any of the newer mmo's.

    Originality is the word you're looking for here.

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    True. It's kinda funny that those older mmo's had housing, meaningful crafting, were more social etc, and newer games seem to be much more simplistic.

    But all the people picking junk like WoW and EQ and AoC aren't being objective at all about this. 

    Seriously? Raids? That's it? WoW and EQ are one dimensional games with only one thing to do at the end of the game. DAoC had a robust crafting economy, as well as an extensive raiding system, AND RvR. There is no better end game content. 

      I agree with this. People seem to equate raiding as the sole end game activity. As far as what game do I think had the best end game? Well Guild Wars has kept me entertained the longest so I guess I'll go with that. But really it's purely subjective as there is no "best" end game, the best is what each person prefers for the end game.

    SWG pre-cu

     

    It's a very hard question to answer for me. In the end I went with the game that that had an 'end-game' that kept me playing the longest, who knows I may have still been playing it if it was around. Other than SWG I would have had to say Planetside, but that's not really an and game but it has kept me playing the longest.

    You dont have to raid on EQ and WoW it's your choice you can do other things and technically why call it end-game? The game doesn't end.

     Not sure about EQ but right now in WoW all there is raiding at the end. It really is a raid or die game. PVP has practically been ignored, perhaps their new expansion will change that.

    Please tell me what you can do in WoW beside grind for pvp gear or pve gear?

    You don't really *have to* create a guided end-game to make it fun and entertaining. Just give the right tools to the players, and they'll make their own end-game themselves.

    I would have to say EQ2 and WOW.  So far no other game has come close to end game content as those did for me.  Also EQ and AC come close to.

    eve

    endgame starts about 1 hour after you know how to use a ship

    the rest is isk grinding to replace what you loose

    politics to give you access to regions without getting a KOS from the locals

    ressource management to have a steady supply of ships for your alliance/corporation

    transportation of goods from central market to home base

    Close enough :/ … I cut my browser down to make room for my word processor, only looking for the poster name and first word of the post mainly, not too far after that the words go off screen. After all, I’m spending the time counting as a human counts, I’m not a PHP script ;)

     

    btw, what game is "Add"?

    hehe :P

    You should really be talking an Arena Game if it's about end game. MMOs are all about persistancy and longevity, nice thread but just so wrong in so many ways.

    Hard to say better, man :) That's exactly point - ideal end-game for MMO is NO end-game at all.

    Neverending story, endless adventures, wide worlds etc. That we really want. And sure in some place on our explorations we can found a legendary lair of dragon battle with whom takes time and tactics, but that's not end.

    If I mentioned EQ1 til PoP (incl.) then that was just the case:

    When legendary heros broke borders with lands of gods, when they went step-by-step to more and more bigger, stronger gods... and when they reach at last god of gods, big Quarm, god of times.... and kill him too. That would be place to put dot on I.

    But then expand game to next patch where 1-2 lil porcupines kill with ease and speed whole 54-men raid of previous god-killers - that was just obsolete and stupid.

    Same thing happened in LOTRO when instead of developing nice story (they already have done very nice) in one stop there was seemly some break-down in brains of some devs. And they started to develope "end-game", meanless radiance-grind rally and stupid instances and more stupidier skirmishes. That killed game not only for me but many ppl I know and respect.

    RVR was the only thing in any MMO that kept me engage for any length of time. Could never really care for PvE raiding, but RVR was just a prefect system to challenge you and  confront you with an almost endless number of situations.

    This thread shows the pitiful state mmorpg.com is in right now. Having a bad taste is one thing, but I didn't have such a good laugh in a very long time.


     


    The fact MMo’s are stale and unbelievable badly designed is your fault guys. Do support these great ideas and make more wind please.  Mark Morhaime and Bobby Kotick are laughing at you all over the internet.

    *yawn* I never said end-game. Most people understand what end-game-content is regarding mmog's. Make it too hard to understand, winds up going nowhere. Just be happy I'm taking the time to count the votes heh
