SWG Didn't Execute Things Very Well But It Tried So Hard & Was Innovative - That's Why I Loved It

MARTYB2KMARTYB2K AthensPosts: 167Member

I loved SWG back before the NGE, however i've been thinking that it wasn't brilliant at anything, but good at many things we haven't seen before, or since.

 

Combat:

Cons - Broken/Unbalanced

Pros - Open World PvP. Player created invasions of towns and cities. A Sense of danger in the world.

 

World:

Cons - Bad Performance for many, Fiddley Environments. Structures just appearing out of thin air.

Pros - Massive, Open, Alive, Weather, Day/Night, Seamless. Felt Star Warsey. Player Content. Great Music /Atmosphere.

 

Housing:

Cons - Lots of Empty Structures.

Pros - Brilliant Idea which really drew you into the world. Never felt so much immersion. I actually used to travel back to it everynight to log off. Even if it was a long way away on a different Planet.

 

No Levels & Not Many Structured Quests Lines:

Cons - People struggeled to find things to do. Probably people who like watching Americas Got Talent, or the X-Factor.

Pros - Complete Freedom. Almost possible to create your own class. Made you judge your power on not simply a level number.

    You forgot crafting which I used to find amazing. I'm usually not a crafter but in SWG I enjoyed.

    Also the concept of player cities was something I really would like to see again.

    Personally, i liked the late post-NGE, especially my rebel gunship, it was my pride and joy.

    And running as a medic beastmaster was awesome, i used to have a small squall to solo Sher Kar with.

    i really miss all of it, even the meatlumps...

    You had to go to Master though or you gimped yourself.  I always thought of SWG as more or a dual class system, beucase oyu could get two all the way up and that was by far the best way to go for almost everything.

    It was a fun game and I think you are right in your idea; SWG had a lot of flaws, but it also had a lot of very cool ideas.  I did not love it as much as man here, and wish the MMOs would have worked in space between SWG and WoW instead of just trying to copy WoW.

    In my opinion, SWG ( pre cu ofc ) had one of the biggest potentials to be a classic of a game.

    Sadly, corporate greed made sure that never happened.

    Post is ok. Worst thing in this game was broken pvp, i can't see the reason why they didn't make movement so smooth like in wow for example. Robotic combat was the only reason i lost will to play. Everything else was just amazing. I had my little house on Tatooine to :)

    YES!!! I absolutely loved crafting and I am not a crafter. I miss this game witha  passion. We need a SWG 2 set during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. That would be awesome! Also SOE cant have it. Lets get Trion to do this game. I like how they have advanced Rift. :)

    LOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!! Really? You of all people have the nerve to talk about the worst forum trolls ever? Mr. I got JediMonkeyLizard #1-456372829 banned and over 70k posts over how many accounts? Lol. You really are some piece of work. The only person I could honestly say who was worse than you on the forums was Kobie/Barrahm. But then again, not by much.

    And it's "sequal" SWTOR was probably the most uninnovative piece of garbage released in years.

    The game was ahead of its time. If they made it now with a far more fluid and robust gameplay engine, it would be superb.

    I'm one of those still stuck in 2005.... Look at my post history--few but almost always about SWG.

    And I still haven't found a game to compare.

    SWG did a lot of things right. It just needed more work and less corporate meddling.
