DeaconXDeaconX Toronto, ONPosts: 3,067Member

So... What if.. Disney gave YOU the decision to choose the developer of the next Star Wars MMORP...who would you choose?

Consider your options and post what studio your choice would be... or even what key talents in the gaming industry :)

 

It's fun to dream...

Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

    Electronic Arts. Mainly because they have a really great track record with mmorpgs. :D

    I would have to say either keep it in house since they also got the gaming section of LA or at a out side SOE (.

    Do not thing the others (EA, Funcom, Bizzard) could make the game fun to play.  Blizzard might be able to do it if SOE or in house production are rejected.

    If they dropped it in my lap, I'd say, "These things don't make money, don't make an MMORPG out of it."

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    If they had Goofy do it then it would never meet its release date. Mickey is really the only one responisble enough to complete a project of this calibur. Everyone knows Donald has anger issues so he would create a hostile environment in the office.

    Probabaly trion, because they've built a great game with a low budget and continue to provide a great service. I can only image what they would do with a 200 million budget.

    Not going to happen.  Two studios have already attempted making a SW MMO.  Neither did well.

    Sadly, I think TOR will be the last attempt made (at least for the next ten years).

    Might as well discuss a different IP.

    but their nasty  tentacles with dollar signs mold the game the way they want to be, which make them a developer corrupter, or in other words, they are in indirect form of developer.

    While I see your point, at least you can concede that Goofy would still be an improvement from what we've had.

    CCP ~ with their sandbox chops and that sexy WoD engine of theirs... where do I send money?

    A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

    You two are both wrong. Only Scrooge McDuck would be the right person. At least it will be a huge financial success.

    Id give it back  to Bioware.  Id also give them unlimited budget, unlimited time and stay out of their way.

    I would want a sandbox with hardcore pvp.  I think Star Wars is to diverse to waste away as a themepark.  I also agree that two server types would be best, pve and pvp.  There's not many companies that have done a good job with a sandbox having owpvp.  I love Darkfall, but the only that slows Darkfall down is the bad company behind it.  Loved SWG, but SOE ruined it....so with that said, i'd have to say the best fit to me would be:

     

    1.  CCP-Had kept Eve alive in wel even during the run of the themeparks, yet keeping their game a true sandbox with hardcore pvp.

    2.  NCSoft-Lineage2 has had its ups and downs, but its one of the longest running mmos.  If they could figure out a way to stop cheaters, as it seemsin all their games its easy to bot....then they could be great with all the updates they do for their games.

    Disney makes the worst games on the market bub, also, no need to even think about this as it is never going to happen.

  • SirBalinSirBalin Joppa, MDPosts: 1,150Member Uncommon
    I wouldn't be surprised at all if it happened.  So many are dying for another SWG type of game, SWTOR was a poor attempt...theres a big market out there if hte game is done right.

    I'd say Trion is indeed pretty impressive... I think my choice, kind of surprisingly would be....

    SOE : Yes, they messed up SWG but I think there were a LOT of lessons learned and quite honestly plenty of people LOVED SWG for what it wanted to be.  The game was far too ambitious for its time and unfortunately, as they were trying to do a lot that hadn't been done, they made a lot of missteps.  Also, it was a call by Lucas camp to 'WoW' up SWG, not SOE.

    I do think SOE now is getting the right idea especially based on this article: http://www.wired.com/gamelife/2012/11/future-of-mmo-games/ - they're understanding the importance of emergent gaming.  I think they have the chops to pull off something great (and look forward to what they're going to do with EverQuest Next).

    They bring with them a LOT of lessons learned in the industry and I think if Disney decided to back them, they could make something really awesome...

    Sigil Games..

    They don't exist anymore, but I thought Vanguard was a very legit attempt at making a sorta hyrbrid mix of token mmo features with strong immerisve world features..

    The community may not have given them the kudos they deserved, but until Microsoft crapped on em and Sony rushed them out the door, they had a gem on their hands and I give them kudos for trying..

    So if they wanted to try and create a Star Wars game like SWG where you are actually PART of the universe, then Brad and his old school team could more than likely make it happen..
