    None if enough people are playing and still enjoy them. Wishing a game would shut down just because you don't like it is pretty selfish.

     not losing their jobs, but maybe to make room for something new and better.. perhaps even by the same company? Who knows... :)

    If people are playing these games they most probably enjoy them so WHY would you want them to shut down?  Because YOU don't like them? Why would shutting down one game be needed to "make room" for another? 

    This poll was more of a cross check with the other poll on the already shut down titles.

    Maybe we can read something out of it. It´s all just for empirical data which I generally find interesting if enough people cast their votes on such questions.

    I don't want to see anything shut down, but out of selfish reasons, I wouldn't mind seeing TOR shut down, and maybe a better Star Wars MMO made, due to the void....But that is only if I had to pick one, don't want to see anyones game shut down that they enjoy.

    Most people have the right answer.  None/Other.  Just because you don't play it, doesn't mean you should wish for its demise.  The more games out there the better.  Gives players a choice, and ups the competition.  Since there are a finite number of players, games should keep evolving.  Those that succeed will rise to the top.

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    none. why would I want a game to shut down? Not only does it employ people but there are probably people who enjoy them.

    Pirates of the Burning Sea. A valient effort, but it needs a mercy killing.

    Now we're calling prostitutes "sex workers". What's next? Calling hit men "end-of-life technicians"?

    Is that so? Player populations spread out more and more over countless titles, every year new blockbuster MMOs - how long will the market be sustainable at the current rate of new releases?

    Another selfish thread by a gamer, oh and EA are the worst company in America.../sigh

    I voted Scarlet Blade, just because it's really bad - I mean doesn't deserve to have been made bad. Not because of breasts, but because it's bad.

    I knew when I saw WoW on the list people would vote for it quite a bit, but that's because too many people think that when WoW goes away , somehow better games will be released. The sad truth is, bad games are going to be made with or without WoW. And yes,

    I see it very much like the arguement atheists put forth about religion, mind you, I myself am atheist, but wars and bad things aren't caused by religion. It's just a scapegoat. Hateful people will just find another reason to hate whatever it is they hate.

     

    I'm not sure why people think of the MMO genre differently than other genres. As if MMO's should all be of higher quality. How many terrible fps games come out per year? Exactly. Do you think by removing the most popular FPS games that somehow all those crappy ones will stop being made? Nope.

    "But they'll stop copying WoW"  Okay, but won't they just copy something else? Could you imagine if every MMO was an EVE clone? Eventually people would get tired of it and want something different to be made.

    "Damn I'm sick of these 4 hour tutorials!" "Hey anyone else wish an instance based pvp game would come out?"

    The problem isn't the popular games, the problem is that players get burnt out faster than the industry adapts.

    I can agree with you here FH.Although I love having choice's,it is getting to the point that the market is becoming over saturated with the ftp barrage.

    To that point,is where I can agree with what M.Jacob's said.I myself think that gamer's are riding a high right now and in a few year's we will see the problem's of what 5246987321 ftp game's actually present's.Some people think this is an end to ptp,I think it's a blip on the radar and many game's will close door's and take losses.

    In the end we will probably have as many game's as now,but the hybrid's with ptp will probably be the strongest.

    I don't want any game to shutdown.  It doesn't matter if I have played it or not, like it or not.  Why wish for people to lose a game they are enjoying?  Someone must be playing it or it wouldn't be there?  Also why wish for people to lose their jobs who work on said game.

    Now in the interest in full honesty I will say that had this vote been long ago I would have voted for SWG to shutdown.  I would have voted for a whole lot of bad stuff to happen to the idiots that ruined SWG though :/

    While I agree the poll in concept is slightly jerkish towards other peoples fun.

    I am going to look at it more from "They would immediately have a sequel" type of thing which is why I voted WoW. I want to see what Blizzard has up their sleeve and if they can pull it all off again!

    MMORPG Gamers/Developers need a reality check!

    Voted Other.  I want Gladiatus shut down.

    Hmm I didn't know the internetz was running out of space?! Serious with a population of 6 billion people and a online gaming population of only 217 million I think we have room enough to grow AND keep current mmorpgs going if the demand is there. You're approaching this like there is only a finite amount of space set aside for the mmo genre...such limited thinking. That must be the reason people are constantly trying to tear these games and the players that play them down.

     

    BTW I voted other/none of the above

    None. If people are playing and enjoying themselves, why deny them their fun?

    - Al

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    Seriously, why would you want to shut down a game that has sufficient players?  If you don't like the game, don't play it.

    Played: UO, EQ, WoW, DDO, SWG, AO, CoH, EvE, TR, AoC, GW, GA, Aion, Allods, lots more
    Relatively Recently (Re)Played: HL2 (all), Halo (PC, all), Batman:AA; AC, ME, BS, DA, FO3, DS, Doom (all), LFD1&2, KOTOR, Portal 1&2, Blink, Elder Scrolls (all), lots more
    Now Playing: None
    Hope: None

    I voted for WoW simply because the death of that monster would finally signal the end of themepark MMO's ( hopefully forever )
  • Lovely_LalyLovely_Laly genevaPosts: 734Member

    no one.

    I would not like to see game I play to be such a fail, I don't want to see people loosing game they play.

    I guess any bad game die by loosing players anyhow, and if it still running, means, some guys still love it.

    Agree with people who would like to fail some companies instate, bad management can never make game more enjoyable.

    all over, this poll is excessive, to be honest....

    try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
    Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

    Well sir,you might actually care about OTHER people?

    It is like saying..."Oh well my neighbour's house is getting robbed,but it doesn't concern me,so i don't care".

    Imagine some people might be wasting their money and time on a game that might very well shut down  before they realize the whole game.

    TIME is MUCH more valuable than money,any time you invest that might be lost before you are ready,can feel like a huge let down.

    I can use an example >>>TAbula Rasa.How many people invested time expecting to playout the game,then realize their time spent was wasted.

    How many people followed and read every article on Dark N Light ,for maybe a year or more,to finally realize NO GAME,they wasted al lthat time following that game.

    There are also many people who build  Guild webpages and coordinate theri guilds structure and run everyday events.Imagine they put in al lthat effort and the game folds?

    I don't want any MMO shut down.

    A few of them heavily redesigned... yes.

    A few of the 'developers' and 'designers' having their 'licence to build MMOs' ticket taken away ... yes.  (Wouldn't fire them just reassign them to something they are good at and couldn't do any harm - like flash games and single player games for example)

    Might I suggest a better poll would be "Which MMO would you like to fundimentally change?"

    "If you could stop a Dev company making MMOs which one?"

    "Which developer / designer doesn't have a clue?"

    Nothing says irony like spelling ideot wrong.

    None, and anyone on this gaming site who says otherwise should take a deep look at themself and really question their way of thinking.

    It can be likened to saying though In a more extreme context  - I don't like you as a person therefore you should die.

    I'd honestly like for Blizzard to fold, and be sold to a new owner who can make a new commitment to quality and respect for customers. It woln't happen, but it would be awesome if their @sshat execs screwed something up bad and got overthrown for their wanton greed and disrespectful practices.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes.
    That way, if they get angry, they'll be a mile away... and barefoot.
