Possibly the biggest year for MMORPG's?

CaptShatnerCaptShatner Chandler, AZMember Posts: 22 Uncommon

There are so many big MMORPG's coming out this year, it's crazy.

Just a lot of MMORPG news in general. What are you looking forward to this year?

With so much happening just in the first month and a half of 2013, what are you looking forward to playing?

(I'm personally excited about FFXIV just because I love player housing and the Final Fantasy series.)

    Every year is "possibly" the biggest year for MMOs.

    This year will be no different.

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    forgot possibly archage, wildstar, the repopulation, blade & soul, black desert.. not sure if all will make it for 2013 though but at least a few of those will.. but yes 2013 looks ot be a hell of a year for MMOs

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall.

    Sad but can be true :<

    hopefully it will be proven wrong :3

    There are people who play games and then there are gamers.

    EQNext and Neverwinter aren't MMO's?  If thats what you're really intending to say we have wildly different opionions of what an MMO is.  I do agree with you about TESO and Wildstar though..

    If your list of seven games has to include a game that launched last year (TERA), a relaunch of an old game (FFXIV), a very old game possibly reverting to how it was several years ago (Runescape), and a game with no real chance of launching this year (EverQuest Next), then maybe this isn't going to be such a big year for game launches?

    Just a question but why is EQNext not a MMO?

    for those curious, EQN won't be out this year.
  • ragz45ragz45 Member Posts: 777 Uncommon

    How can you not include neverwinter, blade & soul, or wildstar in this list?  Come on lol

  • KyleranKyleran Paradise City, FLMember Posts: 22,817 Epic
    Actually, I suspect few of the titles I am interested in will see a launch this year, so it seems a bit lackluster like most years have been. Time will tell I suppose.

    "Winning" at EVE Online since May, 2007! 

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    This is the year of FFXIV Realm Reborn and Elder scrolls which both will be highly succesful. I dont see any of the others making a huge impact. EQNext would but we wont see that until 2014 if we're lucky and i highly doubt Wildstar will make it by the end of the year.

    I dunno it might be. Quote from Smed: "Players will get their hands on an actual release version of what we're doing late [this] year -- and I don't mean a beta," he said.

    http://massively.joystiq.com/2013/01/24/smedley-talks-players-as-content-hints-at-eqnext-actual-releas/

    Guess we will find out more in August with there SoE Live (fanfair) They seem to be keeping the game realy quite so they may be doing somthing big that dont want other companies to copy, all this keep things secretive has intriged me a great deal.

  • MuruganMurugan D, COMember Posts: 1,494

    It's been a while since many genuine subscription based MMO's have launched so I think it is a big year for that reason (though we don't know yet if ESO will be sub based).

     

    Last year pretty much everything launched as, or was forced to switch to F2P.  Or was Guild Wars 2.

    Ask me next year if/when these launch and their status.

    Really not seeing anything that I find personally interesting.

     

    I'm wondering how many DAOC clones we need.

    Neverwinter was originally designed to be a CORPG until PWE bought up Cryptic from Atari. I think Rthuth missed 2 years MMO info or so.

    But frankly does this year not really seems better or worse than 2010, 2011 or 2012. And I assume that 1 or 2 games will be delayed anyways.

    2007 server so yeah not runescape 2 which was indeed when it went 3d, it will also be slower skill gains i beleive back before u could max a character out in like a month

    Other than what was also mentioned your list lacks some huge games.   

     

    Firefall is huge and will be even bigger when released.

     

    Defiance is also going to be something to look foreward too. I mean come on this will be the first time (im pretty sure) that a MMO has been tied into an ongoing TV show. Also the game play looks awesome.
