The community here are MMORPG.com, the voice of the MMO gaming community, seems to rage over the so called "lack of sandbox support" from developers, and the more THEMEPARK focused development over the last few years.
Well something I notice, thanks to a few forumers here, is that most SANDBOX MMO are never innovating at all. Innovation doesn't seem to be as big of a topic as it is from the THEMEPARK community, because they are use to the idea of these games can be different. THEMEPARK fans want innovation, and SANDBOX fans want the opposite of innovation.
Well going by the community here's though on AAA themepark developers, they sure seem to lack innovation. Doesn't that kinda fit into what the Sandbox community wants?
would that mean that these AAA Themepark developers can make good sandbox MMO?
But on the flip side of things. Sandbox design seem much harder to successfully pull off unless you a developer that know what they are doing in the design. Which may be why so many Sandbox MMO aren't pleasing the community here which cry out for them.
Well these AAA developers, which seem to have a record of making poor Themepark MMO.
Wouldn't they likely fail as well if they try their hands at a harder project such as a SANDBOX MMORPG?
What's your thoughts?
