Nah, the issue comes down to this for me. I played UO for 10+ years. There hasn't been a sandbox that comes close to it.
They haven't managed to make another sandbox like it in 15 years. I don't see one coming any time soon. So if I had to pick between themepark and sandbox to play for the next 5 years I'd go themepark simply because choosing sandbox means I'd be stuck playing sandbox wannabies like DF or MO which isn't going to happen lol.
Currently playing: Elder Scrolls OnlineMMORPG experiences:EQ2, AoC(pre f2p), Lotro,GW1,DDO, Aion,WoW( stop with wotlk),Allods, GW2Eu,War, Secret World
Waiting On: WoD Sometime Maybe: Elder Scrolls MMO, Might and Magic
I would probably play Minecraft, but I'd be spending a LOT of time doing something that wasn't playing video games.
I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.
Originally posted by mmoDAD I voted Sandbox, too. I can't imagine blasting through the Theme Park to max level in a matter of weeks and having to spend the next 4 years and 11 months playing the same 4-5 Battlegrounds, Arenas, Warzones, or whatever they want to call 'em. Sandbox has fantastic sustain. It's a shame that AAA funding has never really hit the Sandbox genre as of yet. Here's hoping for ArcheAge and EverQuest Next (Smed did state that they are going virtual world with this one).
I didn't vote because you don't have an option for the game that is FUN.
Themepark or sandbox, whatever as long as I am enjoying it, you need that option as well. Hell, maybe I would want to play NHL 13 for the next 5 years, why not an option for that?
That Guild Wars 2 login screen knocked up my wife. Must be the second coming!
Well, you'd expect a sandbox answer to this poll, but truth be told, most sandboxes bore me to pieces. It's all player driven, but if a group of players decides to do things that you don't like one bit, then tough, you're in for the ride or you're out as well.
So I'd prefer a good themepark to a sandbox, because I have yet to find a decent casual friendly sandbox that doesn't require a sub.
