If you could take a Movie,Book or RL event and make an MMORPG, what would it be?

RictisRictis UnknownMember Posts: 1,298 Uncommon

Are there any books, movies or rl events that you think could ever be a good MMO?

Please list what you feel would be a major success as a MMORPG if you could chose the companies to produce it.

The only rule is that you have to chose between Books,Movies or a RL event.

I think the world of Terry Goodlkind, from the Sword of Truth book series would be one of the best worlds to create an MMORPG in. You can have factions, pvp, sieges. I mean you could really go nuts.

    meh.. I don't really like mmorpgs based off of other stories. Which is why I've never dabbled in SWTOR or LOTRO

    You do realize every game you play is based off of lore from somewhere.

     

    Edit:

    You could argue in MMORPG land that LOTRO and ME is the original that all others followed.

    Movie, book or RL event does not make good MMos. It is alll about gameplay systems, implementation, art direction, and a thousand little details.

     I have to disagree, while you are correct its about gameplay systems etc. All that stuff can be created from scratch by taking a concept and expanding on it.

    Original content please.

    I'm tired of seeing my favorite IPs butchered by horrible game companies trying to make a quick buck.

    The above is my personal opinion. Anyone displaying a view contrary to my opinion is obviously WRONG and should STHU. (neener neener)

    MH is shaping up to be a good game. You know that it "borrows" more from Diablo than from traditional MMOs? And it is F2P.

    WW II MMO ala Axis and Allies. US, UK and Russia vs Germany and Japan. 5 factions FTW!

    Well everyone has their own preferences. I like Diablo 3 much more than WOW .. so i think i will like MH more.

    DCUO is not a bad game though. I did have some fun with it.
