    I'll sign that poll.  Big gaming companies are as bad as big government - totally counterproductive to imagination, and just trashing games like Dark Age of Camelot into nothing.

    Why would anyone want any games to shut down? That's just mean... you didn't create it, it is not your livelihood.

    It is like saying you want someone to be out of a job.

     

    That's said, I do want the following games to be fully audited by the independent bodies and be put into administration if found to be incompetent so that they will be held accountable for lying to customers:

    WarZ

    Mortals Online

    WWII Online

    Are you sure?  MMOs take time to build?!   Thanks for taking a response, where I said I didn't want anything shut down and acting high and mighty on it.....  I said if my life depended on it, and ?I had to make a choice, sorry the precious TOR doesn't get to live over me, if that was me or it...

    Lord of the Rings Online..

     

    Why?

     

    The game is old and it feels old. I'm not saying it wasn't fun, it was, but now time has passed and we need to move on. It was a joy while it lasted but now I'm hoping someone else picks up the reigns and makes a new Lotr-theme MMORPG with graphics, gameplay, story we would expect today. Imagine a skyrim-like lord of the rings MMORPG. Wishful thinking? Maybe. But I'ld still want something to replace Lord of the Rings Online. 

     

    Thanks!

    We can get into specific games of course, but this whole "How dare anyone even entertain the possibilty of a game shutting down" hasn't been backed up by anything but phony indignation. Arrogant? Physician, heal thyself.

    I'm not the one trying to harm another person's favorite game just because I don't like it.  Obvious mis-use of the phrase "Physician, heal thyself".

    You say it's old, true, but it's still a better looking virtual world than many newer MMO's out there. The character models do need improving though as do their animations but the lore and world are sound (except Runekeepers).

    I'm not trying to harm anyone. I'm trying to help the countless people who are victims of the dollar-auction trap.

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

    I would like to see any title that EA dumps out fail miserably.

    That being said, Perfect World is in a close second for being one of the most expensive games to upkeep a character in. Additionally, the game is old and stale beyond belief. It's pretty closely related to the idea of old men sitting on their porch yelling at their neighbor's kids to get off the lawn, because it is so outdated that movies that use crotchety old men don't even refer to it anymore. It's a depricated standard that people don't even compare MMORPGs to anymore.

    I played WoW up until WotLK, played RoM for 2 years and now Rift.
    I am F2P player. I support games when I feel they deserve my money and I want the items enough.
    I don't troll, and I don't take kindly to trolls.
