So first off, I know they are making a "mmo"...and if you've spent more then 20 seconds on the GOT page...you'll know its utter crap.
Second off, I know movies made into games usually turn out like the game listed above... but for the sake of this discussion, lets pretend it could be done right.
I don't know how to do a spoiler alert hidy thingy, so if you havn't seen the TV show. dont' read beyond this point
Aight getting down to business. I recently burned through what is out of that TV show...and OMG!!! I love the world and the lore, and it seems PERFECT for a game/MMO, (a well done one) the "wall" with the white walkers and giants...and dragons.. I mean its got everything,
A few contraptions, a little magic, some sweet fighting. It just seems like the perfect place for a large AAA MMO...
But that got me thinking even more, why in MMO's are you allowed to go everywhere? I mean you have access to just about everything in a standard fantasy MMO, everything from the prison to the throne room...
I was thinking (keeping in mind all of this is based on the GOT universe) that you could join the game have a standard starting area, blah blah blah... but when it came to certain area's only certain people have access, like if you want to go beyond the northern wall you would have to join up as a black gaurd (I think thats what they are called)...but then you could only stay on the northern wall and do quest related to that area.
If you wanted to go south then you would reroll another toon and have that guy dedicated to something else. I think it could really stretch out the life of a game, and allow for more intresting quest.
Anyways, I'm just on a slight high from the TV series.. but its probably the best fantasy world I've seen in a long time.
