Would you play an MMO that didn't have jumping in it?

    No... it wouldn't though at the same time its a bit silly unless the game style itself doesn't call for it. If your doing a 3D game, put jumping and use it in the game, it makes things more interesting. Isometric games and the like its, just due to have difficult it could be, or anything point and click focused in general.

    I could of sworn we've ahd this conversation before...or maybe 50 times before during the years but....yes i would as long as there was a clear reason for not having a jump button that added to the gameplay and not because of lazy developement and an unwillingness to design world terrain limitations to accomadate jumping.

    The only two MMOs I play at the moment, Spiral Knights and Realm of the Mad God, don't include jumping.

    So yes, I would.

    Yes for some reason jumping makes it seem like you have more control over your character. More interaction on the gaming world somehow.

I would assume, every time they see a post complaining about too many/too hard jumping puzzles, they now laugh their rocks off.

    LOL'd for this one

    I am not fond of lack of jumping in MMO's, it just detracts from the overall immersion when it feels like your character is nailed to the ground or has lead feet. I would try an MMO that didn't have jumping if the game sounded interesting, but to be honest I have never enjoyed any MMO without jumping that I tried and it wasn't just because of the lack of jumping.

    The bunny hopping thing sucks though I will admit. Which is why jumping needs to be accompanied by a stamina mechanic.

    Useless mechanic.


    Few games actually use jumping in combat or as part of deungeon exploration or normal exploration.

    I would and have.  Lots of great games didn't have jumping.  For example, Europa Universalis II.

    Oh, MMO, you say?  Well then, Guild Wars and Uncharted Waters Online didn't have jumping, and still turned out pretty well I'd say.

        I've played several taht had no jumping and it doesn't really bother me much....In fact. I'd rather have no jumping than constant jumping which is what too many BGs end up being.
