    a song of fire and ice (Game of Thrones)

    I guess I could use it because there is a game made about it :P

    Anyway it's lore rich. You have plenty of places you could start this game at. It also a very good setting for a sandbox game or a themepark game. For the sandbox you could start when human first tried to settle the lands. Also it said in the books that the history we know from the books have been written 1000s of years after the events happened. So lore-wise it would be perfect. You have some bounderies, but a lot of space still to create your own story.

    As a themepark also has multilply entry points. Could even be a themepark with a lot of sandboxy features. I would take the start of the war of the 7 kingdoms. Seems like a interesting moment in Westeros history for a themepark games or maybe after the creating of the 7 families. Might make for a interesting politcal simulation aspect to it. Players could be lesser nobility or something, being able to become commanders or even be granted a castle/keep or whatever and using this way get some power to control the politics. 

    I do not have much faith in the MMO being created right now. I though Battlestar Galactica was a well made game and I am sure that the MMO of a song of fire and ice will be oke, but doubt it will be the MMO it could be.

    Imagine the chaos of players pulling other players out of their rides...people running all over with missile launchers taking on an army of police...or the army...blowing the carp out of the city...

    Quest: slap x amount of hoe's = 100 people running around slapping every hoe in sight.

    A GTA MMO was already done. It is called APB and it was designed by David Jones who was one of the original creators of GTA.

    The problem with GTA is that I could only ever see it working as a single player game.  You need some law and order to break in order to be a theif/villain.  If everyone and everything is crime and chaos like APB then whats the point?

    currently playing: DDO, AOC, WoT, P101

    I actually though the APB's idea was good. Just the execution not so. I though it was fun, the PvP was good is you had a balanced match and was fun to both play police or be the criminal.

    Quake or Doom. I'd love to see what kind of MMO PvP system id software could come up with.

    Agree with both, would like to see something similar, mostly the humor from those 2, Thought APB would be able to fill that void, yet it didn't do it for me as it felt to much like just a multiplayer game not so much a mmorpg feel.

    Also feel the Mass Effect Universe would lend it self very well to become a MMORPG aslong we can choose all "friendly" races to be playable.

    But I also feel that a well known singleplayer IP made into a MMORPG it should be a sandbox version as the singleplayer game is already guided and we got to know most of the story just place me in that universe in that MMORPG version.

    Quake AND doom
    3 sided game like ps2 with marines vs strogg vs hell

    Less vehicle led. More doors and indoor areas. Killing players let's you take their guns and ammo, be careful not to draw attention to yourself with that bfg.

           Not a video game and probably wouldnt make a good MMO (think Eve with full Newtonian Physics) but :

     

      I would just love to play this as a computer game

    7. Horizions, before the blackout.
    8. Gauntlet
    9. Call of Cuthulu
    10. Dr. Who
