Please, someone make a mmorpg that is fun and addictive. One that I cannot wait to have a few days off to endulge myself in. My first mmo was SWG. it was the coolest, funnest, most addictive game I have ever played, and then came the NGE, and we all know the end of that story.
So anyway, I remember someone back in my early SWG days telling me the very night I finished mastering the Chef profession and unlocking my Jedi slot. He said this " You will never experience anything like this in a game in your lifetime" . I believe he was correct. After the NGE was cast down on us like the black plague, I ran off to WOW. It was still in its vanilla days. I must say, it isnt SWG but Blizzard has really made a solid mmo with this game. It has been my crutch to fall back on after enduring many not so up to par mmo's while in search of that elusive game that takes me back to my glory days...
The days of guilds that actually mattered. Guild halls for us to decorate how we like and hold meetings and store guild items. A player economy that actually worked and when you became a part of it, whether through crafting, harvesting, or grinding credits to purchase things, it made you want to do more to get your share of the riches rolling in. Open world points of interest and places to explore with everyone, not just instances of small groups , and phases. Player cities that were run by the players with a leader who could be voted out of office by player elections. No levels, just skills. Skills that could be dropped to learn something else and even relearned later on. Never needing to roll another character. Ahh good times. I'd like to say that good times are ahead of us but it doesnt seem any developers are interested in resurecting the old school mmorpg, and making an emmersice world that is addictive, mysterious, and fun. And most of all, a mmorpg that keeps us logging in.
We have endured so many failed mmo's that claimed to be the next generation mmo that is unique and innovative.
To name a few...Aion, GW2, Tera, SWTOR, The Secret World. Now dont get me wrong, all these games have some elements that are fun, unique, and somewhat addictive. Although, all these mmo's have holes in them. Empty holes which need filled by the things that matter in an mmo that developers just cant seem to figure out.
So im closing with this, I challenge someone out there with the resources and wits to create an mmorpg that is emmersive with unique and innovative qualities but oldschool fun and addictive style. It doesnt have to be sandbox nor themepark. How about a little bit of both? Theme park locations but sandbox world. A little beginner tutorial area for the slow learners. There is so much one can do with a fantasy world, why arn't we seeing it happen ?
