Would you sub $29.99 a month to a MMORPG if the game was just that incredible?

    Have you seen what those folks over at Gemstone IV are paying or that game?

    I tend to think that if it is TRULY what you want to play, you will pay to play it..

    If they developed a great sandbox based on Universal Century Gundam that fixed the bugs and mishaps of that other one they had in japan, and released it in the states.. I would pay more than I would pay for any other game to play it..

    How about for a MMO like this...

    14.99 is my limit. Anymore than that, and I stick with F2P

    Yes, if the game was like Sword Art Online (not the dying part, but the cerebral full immersion) then yes I would.

    Literally living in another world would kick ass, as long as I can take the helmet off, Of course.

    remember this is YOUR dream MMO. So it can have w/e you want in it. what would THAT game be worth a month TO YOU>

    Yes.  I pay $150 for cable and internet, $15 for netflix, about $45 for various MMO's, and that's not even going into stuff like the occassional movie ticket or new video game release.

    I could see paying $30 a month for an MMO, especially if it meant dropping other subs and not getting as many new games.

Or do you think no matter how good a game is, its only worth a minimal fee?    

    Inflation? Perhaps, otherwise heck no fool!!!

    I'd prefer games to bring back the old EQ Legends server model where players can pay more to play on a server that doesn't have poor people on it.

    heh some of these replies... I'm almost embarrassed to say I spend about 100 bucks a month on video games presently (almost). And thats down from about 150 a month in my twenties. I spend about 30-40 bucks a month on indie games ;p, a monthly sub or two, and a single player game about every other month.

    Yeah I know what you mean mate but all I can remember is having some truely fun moments in that game... The open world PvP was amazing and even though it was a grindfest to level up it was still fun to level in a group

    I dont understand why people freak out about MMO sub fees.  If I go to the movie ($7) and buy a popcorn ($4) and a drink ($3) I spend between $14 and $17 for 2 hours of entertainment.  I leave the theater with nothing for the rest of the month.  MMO's are so much more entertainment than that.  I would gladly pay $30 a month for a really good sandbox MMO.

    Yes without a second of hesitation. If they released a proper Elder Scrolls MMO, Shadowrun MMO or heck even SWG2 that was done properly.
  • KilraneKilrane WAPosts: 302Member Uncommon

    My short answer is no.


    However, I would consider 30 plus a month for a sub if the devs made it worth my while. At 30 dollars a month my expectations would be ridiculiously high, so much so that I don't think such a game is possible now or in the near future.

    It would have to be some kind of groundbreaking VR game for me to even consider $30 a month.

    $20 maybe would be more realistic...again, it would have to seriously be something thats miles beyond what current games offer, and I can't really fathom anything that would get me that excited.

    Otherwise just my favorite idea of what an MMO should/could be, no. I wouldn't pay more than $15.

    At first thought, yes.

    But then a dream mmo... hmmm that would force me out of my social life, make me call in sick to work every other day, giving me bad food habits, getting bad hygiene etc etc. So that means I would sell my whole life for 30 bucks. Doesn't sound so appealing when you think about it. :D

    If some could make my dream MMO, I'd happly pay $30 a month.

    Otherwise, I'd pay $15 a month for someone elses dream MMO.

    Why do people keep looking for ways to spend more money for doing the same thing? I'd almost suspect publisher sock puppets to post these things trying to convince people to spend more.

    Well that is what my dream mmo would be to me.  I'm a little chagrined to admit that I think that I think $15 a month for an mmo is a lot for one game.  If you pay $20 / month for a sub it would be roughly the equivalent of paying $15 pre month with a $50 xpac annually.  I'm kind of a penny pincher.

    Centuries ago, in primitive times, before the dawn of civilization, there were things that would be inconceivable to us today; such things as poverty, disease, violence, senility, and love.

    Well in the past I had 3 accounts of SWG so I was spending about $45 a month so yes I could spend $30 for a great game.

    max I would go would be 20 bucks and there would not be any type of cash shop

    It would have to absolutely mindblowing. Still... it woul have to somehow justify the high fee... P&P style GMs perhaps?
