Originally posted by 77lolmac77 I'll say this and everyone will laugh but I'm telling you a Narnia MMO would be cool. So many races to choose from and could have 3 faction PvP plus all the different characters that could be used for bosses/faction leaders, etc. Probably wont happen though
I would love a Narnia MMO!
A couple of my other choices:
Avatar - the Last Airbender
Alias or Chuck (a good spy MMO would be great!)
And there's some others I'm sure, but those are the ones that stick out right now. And like most people have said, I'd love it if they made a game based off of those IP's, but only if the game doesn't suck.

Skyrim is not an IP, think you mean Elder Scrolls or TES.
But for myself id say Warhammer 40k or GTA !

That's easy... it would be Stargate (if done right)!

^^ or Dragonlance. Could never get into Forgotten Realms.. /shrugs
Song of Ice and Fire refers to A Game of Thornes not Dungeons and Dragons. You are thinking of Icewind Dale. You remind me of my friend who hated Forgotten Realms and was a Dragonlance guy, doesnt really matter because you both are wrong because R.A. Salvatore is a f**king god among authors.
R.A Salvatore IS the most over rated fantasy author of all time. You really need to read more books or stop being 10 years old.
And you need to die IRL. j/k but Salvatore is my favorite fantasy author and Douglas Adams is my favorite Sci-Fi author and its not even close. I have read so many books in my 42 years on this planet (on average 1 per week) and I have enjoyed those 2 more so then any.
Who is your favorite Author? Stephanie Meyer or JK Rowling? lol. And dont say George R. R. Martin because he writes like he is explaining rocket science, so hard to follow his style because it doesnt flow in rythem and synch like a good book does.
Please mods dont ban me for just kidding for the die in real life comment. :P
Steven Erickson (fantasy) Dan Simmons (scifi). And i will NOT die in real life because i need to read The Black Company which i just started.
Playing: PO, EVEWaiting for: WoD Favourite MMOs: VG, EVE, FE and DDOAny person who expresses rage and loathing for an MMO is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae.
The Cold War!
I've always tried to envision a great MMo based on the cold war with espionage, arms race, industry, and micro skirmishes which bring the world to brink of nuclear war.
Asterix and Obelix
Star Trek (If done correctly)
Or, a game set in Lovecraft mythos (Call of C'thulu)
James Bond (Espionage, spy type of game)
Terminator (set in the future)
It's not about fighting, it's about balance. It's not about enlightenment, it's about balance. It's not about balance.
Wheel of Time (but probably not the one that's coming out by a new developer)

You have Star Trek (If done correctly)
Would you do the others if they weren't done correctly?
If it stays true to the PnP Source then: Shadowrun.

Thomas Covenant? The White Gold Weilder? WTF? Mr "I am a rapist and a man dying of leperosy"? Wha? Seriously? What in the lore would make that a compelling game environment? Hell might as well go with Last of the Renshai while you are at it.
You sir owe my curiosity an explanation for such madness!
DAMN HOW COULD I FORGET:
Palladium's RIFTS! Going with a Juicer or Vampire Hunter. No wait Ultimax pilot! No NO Ley Line Walker... no wait.... Dog Boy!
Depends on how the MMO will play. Just IP doesnt predict anything about that. I always liked Lord of the Rings (thanks to these books I now read for fun) and loved the movies too. I also liked the idea about the MMO, that you werent going to play as a main character, but someone in the background. But LOTRO was too boring for me. They created the kind of MMO that I wasnt interested in. I tried to like it, but I couldnt last a month. Even though I love the IP.
So while it can be interesting if a new MMO is announced based on an IP that I like, I dont really get that excited untill the developers tell more about the features and gamemechanics. Preferably using ingame footage.
For example, I would love a MMO based on Discworld. But that would need cooperation from Terry Pratchett himself. I really dont want others to mess up his humour and characters. And even then it really depends on what kind of gamemechanics will be used.

They did and it was cancelled last I heard.
Owww! I love this game!
Uhh... Star Wars the old re... sorry wrong thread.
What I would really like to see is a good Sengoku based MMO. One that is fairly historically accurate.
I have a problem with MMOs based on existing world with set stories and characters.
Every one wants to be Conan, Drizzt, Aragorn, but they have already done all the cool stuff.

Lol, that would actually be an interesting setting. I used to love to read those comic in my youth.
I would love to have a dragonlance mmo. There is so much history and lore in the series it would be perfect for such a game. Each generation could be an expansion. Being able to adventure with the characters from that series would be awesome.

Douglas Adams were indeed great. I like the Icewind dale trilogy by Salvatore myself but think his books started to drop in quality after them. I wouldn't call him bad still, but I think that Denning, Greenwood and Grubb have made better FR books, and at times, Cunningham.
I do not agree with you about Martin, I like his style. I am not as impressed about Jordan though, while Eye of the world was a great book he kinda started to be too slow for my taste after it.
The thing with books is that they really are a matter of taste. Some people love when the story is about many people and switching constantly while others prefer to have the book focused on a single hero or party. Both works for me.
There are many great and rather unknown authors who write great fantasy though.
My personal downside with Salvatore is that I don't paricularly like some of his characters. People like Wulfgar, Bruenor and many of the bad guys never really felt that much too me. I like Jarlaxle and Regis though.

Actually, yes. Dragonlance would make some epic flying mount battles if nothing else.
I think Ravenlofts steampunk horror would work as well. The advantage to that before DL is that CCP actually owns the right to RL.
Mortal Kombat MMO would be sick. Though I wouldn't done in the traditional MMO style. I'd want it to play at least somewhat like a fighting game.
5) GRR Martin's game of thrones books. for a political intrigue type of game it would be the best.
4) for a modern fantasy setting, Neil Gaiman's Anansi boys/ American gods world, (and if you havent read american gods? go do it now, it's not only a great fantasy but at its core a wonderful book about america)
3) I wanna indulge my steampunk freak flag, so i'll choose my favourite steampunk type world, the Engineer series by KJ Parker. In the US it's hard to find, but if you can it's worth every second spent reading.
2) Star Control (the RPG series of the 1990s) i am sure some of you other older folks remember how amazing the star control games are . My choice for the space/sci-fi game.
1) of course, of course, ages come and go, and eventually the legends that were once ages fade from memory, but a wheel of time MMO would live forever, for me, just like the books do, and RJ himself does.

My optimism wears heavy boots and is loud.
While I like many of the suggestions given in this thread, upon reflection my favorite MMO's have been for titles with unknown (or little known) IP's such as DAOC (OK, Arthurian Legend is pretty big, just more of a public domain thing), Lineage 1/2 (yes, I know its based on an Asian IP), EVE, and even WOW (game lore from RTS of same name, but not traditional lore.)
Games based on IP's such as LotRO, Star Trek, Star Wars, Warhammer and even Conan all pretty much tanked in my eyes.

A very well done Potter MMO might keep me glued... so long as it wasn't just about Hogwarts.
2. The Malazan Book of the Fallen series from Steven Erikson
3. The Dark Tower from Stephen King
4. The idea behind the original The Matrix (leave out the idiot crap in the sequels)
Of course, they would have to be B2P for me to play them!
You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???
Be afraid.....The dragons are HERE!
