    Darksiders 2 is pretty close in mechanics.

    Some anime series would be good, like fullmetal alchemist. learn skills through alchemy.

    Edit: HOLY CRAP Dark Souls!!!

    There are probably several games that have the potential to be good MMOs, but it's all in how it is done.  For me, Elder Scrolls would make a good sandbox-y, open world, with player cities game.  I didn't get vary far into Morrowind but the different "guilds" would be an interesting addition to an MMO.  If I remember correct, a person could be a part of multiple "guilds" in the game.  Since guilds in MMOs have a different meaning than they did in Morrowind, the name would probably need to be changed but the concept of having groups associated with classes that players could be associated with, get quests from, and work their way up the ranks would work in a game where one could mix and match or learn multiple classes.

    The problem with games that are designed originally as single player games is developers sometimes don't know how to tweak the game to transition it from single player to multiplayer. I saw this in The Sims Online.  As popular as The Sims is/was, it had the potential to be a good online game but it seemed to keep too many of the single player concepts and did not add enough multi-player concepts.  True, there were those that enjoyed it, but the population sank a lot faster than it should have.  Another example I saw brought up is many times in single player games the player is THE hero of the story. To transition to a multi-player game, there needs to be other roles and THE hero of the story should not be a player character,  This could be handled in one of two ways: either have multiple "heroes" make sense in the online version or have the online version be about what is going on in the world while the one hero story is happening (example: if the hero is saving the world and becoming king, the players may be leading their own lives by killing local wildlife and enemies, they may be fighting battles along side the hero, or they may be crafting goods and entertaining/healing those who are fighting).

    I'm going to have to go with Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning on this.  The single player game was alot of fun and if they could of captured the essence of that combat in an MMO it would of been wonderful.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    Daggerfall, still the most massive RPG to date (even though it took random dungeons to a new level).

    I could play that. Rumor is that he licensed it 2-3 years ago, but Kevin have refused to comment on it...

    The dogboys are easy, their Psistalker on the other hand might be worse.

    Battlefield 3.


    With better PVP than Planetside 2 (not just territory control), and with expansive PVE (instances or "raids" like BF3s underdeveloped - but awesome - COOP mode).


    I'm quite done with fantasy MMOs. Let this be the age of the MMOFPS.

    Any that was solid and sandboxy, that actually requires reliability on the community for players to achieve goals, Epic moments that I felt from older MMO's, soloing should be kept to the minimum. Player driven world. A great single player game doesnt gaurantee a great MMO.

    This and nothing else.

    Classic Unreal would be interesting.  PVE RPG shooter.
