I mean seriously why am I still obsessed with a game that even the developer hates. I would think I could just move on and be happy playing another game and god konws I have tried. I even played WOW and all of its various incarnations by other developers. I sort of feel how Neo did in the first Matrix when Trinity is trying to convince him to stay in the car and explains that he knows exactly where that road goes. Thats how themepark MMO's are for me.
Who would have guessed that SWG would be the last AAA sandbox? I mean back t hen I was sure that other developers would have made more open ended games and thought it was the logical eveolution. Making online gaming experiences closer to reality. I just feel bad for the people in the forum above us as they have no idea they are walking on the ashes of a once vibrant game.
At this point there is only 2 senarios that are likey to pull me out of the MMO duldrums.
1. A europen developer actually pulls out a functional Sandbox MMO. They seem to cater to a more mature audience and certainly have ideas and have the desire to make a complex MMO. They simply lack the funding and experience to pull it off look at Darkfall I still give the game credit for trying though.
2. SWG is sold to another developer far away from the clutches of SOE or a good mod is created and that may take years though.
Hopefully by the Time I expatraiate to Thailand and have all the time in the world one of these senarios comes to fruition.
