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 isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein"Graphics are often supplied by Engines that (some) MMORPG's are built in" - Spuffyre
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).
But since SAO will be a single player game soon...
SAO in a mmo.

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!!!
A Bard's Tale
Wizardry (An actual MMO, not the dungeon hack / hardcore monstrosity that SOE is making.)
A full fledged 3D and upgraded Ultima Online
AD&D fully realized Forgotten Realms world (An actual MMO, not another dungeon hack)
Chronicles of Riddick
Vampire: The Masquerade
Never made into a game list:
Wheel of Time Series
Chronicles of Thomas Covenant Series
The Sword of Truth Series
The Sword of Shannara Series and or Knight of the Word Series
( Note to self-Don't say anything bad about Drizzt.)
An acerbic sense of humor is NOT allowed here.
Thats easy ? All my favorite games:
- Baldurs Gate 2
- Neverwinter Nights 2
- Vampire: Bloodlines
- Star Wars: The Knights of the Old Republic

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.
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.

This and nothing else.
Classic Unreal would be interesting. PVE RPG shooter.
