What Dead Game would you like to see rise from the Grave?

    SWG-PreCu wins it for me.

    And yes, due to how different the "different eras" were of SWG, you do need to specify wich era you'd want to see rise.

    this one, plus majority on this site seems to always hail to swg aswell. wich oviously was a failure since its no longer among us. on my opinion its this insert old game name here and praise how good it was when you played it,  just so you think you can be cool gamer.

    I never played any of those games on the list. My choice would be Horizions, before the blackout. I really wish someone would make a MMO like that. I have tried looking but to no avail. I know the game is still alive as Istaria, but the concept is totaly different.

    First choice, far and above anything else:  Earth and Beyond; a fantastic and innovative game that just needed some actual support instead of the lipservice EA gave it.


    I'd consider SWG, but if and only if we are talking about the Pre-CU version; anything after the NGE is NOT SWG, or even an MMORPG; it was a FPS abomination masquerading as SWG.


    Third choice:  City of Heroes; an amazing game that was nowhere near its end of life when NCSoft pulled the plug.

    Agree. Failed ones may be to harsh. I would use the term dated.

    I like new games. I played the CRAP out of EQ1, but with the exception of a week every couple of years, I don't see myself playing it again for any length of time.

    SWG was a great game, I played it for a while, but I wouldn't play it even if it were free now.  Games evolve, they get better. I played alot of Pitfall in the 80's, but give me Skyrim anyday.

    City of Heroes.  AND the Studio that  kept it going: Paragon Studios.   A game and game developer studio callously thrown overboard in the name of  NCSoft grindfest "new company focus and direction" .

    City of Heroes, far and away.  The only game where I got to make MY characters living out MY stories instead of borrowing someone elses.

    I made an account just to vote for CoX! City of Heros was the first real MMORPG I've ever played. I started playing that game when I was seven years old, and now to see it shut-down at age sixteen is just a nightmare. NCSoft needs to sell it, or at least create their already trademarked CoH2, otherwise I'm not buying or paying NCS another dime.

    haha asherons call 2 would be a godsend xD, but in all seriousness SWG coming back would be amasing as well both ac2 and swg existing would make a heavnly scene

    Asheron's Call 2 doesn't need to be on that list since they already brought it back...

    I would like to see SWG return in it's Pre-CU version but, I would want also all the content that was developed post-NGE till the end . Despite Pre-Cu being the best version for its skill based system and 32 professions the game was extremely low on content , if somehow post NGE content with Pre-Cu content could be merged I would jump on it in a second otherwise its time to let it pass, cause the Repopulation will be the successor to SWG.

    Yes I know.

    I still listed it because, even though it is back, I wanted to see how many votes it would get.

    Not many it seems

    Tried: EQ2 - AC - EU - HZ - TR - MxO - TTO - WURM - SL - VG:SoH - PotBS - PS - AoC - WAR - DDO - SWTOR
    Played: UO - EQ1 - AO - DAoC - NC - CoH/CoV - SWG - WoW - EVE - AA - LotRO - DFO - STO - FE - MO - RIFT
    Playing: Skyrim
    Following: The Repopulation
    I want a Virtual World, not just a Game.

    I voted for Shadowbane, because - despite its various issues - it was a very fun PvP MMO to get into. Great character development and very raw action.

    I was kinda bummed when it went offline.

    The one thing that folks here hate about SWG is the NGE and can't believe there was anymore to the game.  It was a festering mortal wound to the game.  COH never had that deep of a cut out side the PVP nerf.


    Yeah, the PvP nerf was nastier than a møøse byte. But, in all fairness, they nerfed EVERY power and powerset early on in the game, and everyone cried and some even quit. Then they pretty much did the exact same thing again with ED (enhancement diversification), and some of those in the company (NCSlut or Cryptic, can't remember which it was at the time), even admitted that it was a mistake. (And as a sidenote, the game survived.)

    However, they (Paragon Studios) eventually fixed the issue by re-tweaking the powers, adding the Invention System and all the good sets, then making all the great Purple sets, then the PvP sets, and finally... the most awesome part... Incarnates. I mean, nothing makes a guy/gal feel more like they are playing a real superhero than playing a well built, well IOed, and Incarnated character.

    Not to mention something unheard of in the MMO world. Architect Entertainment. I mean, with almost everything at your disposal that the developers had, you could make your missions and post them for others to play.

    There was seriously never a dull moment in the game. Wanna grind? Farm? PL? Lock a lowbie at level 12? PvP at any level? Supergroups? Missions? Raids? Badges? Team? Solo? Change factions? Chat/hang with friends? There was really nothing in another game that you could not do in CoH/CoV. Then there was Zombie invasions, Rikti invasions, Holloween event, Holiday event...  The game was downright incredible.

    Okay, I'm going to climb down off my soapbox now.

    I am dabbling in AC2 right now... However, it is still just so-so when I put it up against AC1.


    I would like SWG - CU or Pre-CU are both fine with me. I miss the crafting, the social classes, the housing and community features of that game... Alot.
