Anyone else think that "Everquest Next" is a stupid name?

    Heh!

     

    This thread is pretty funny.

     

    Complaining about a working title.

     

    Funny. :)

    You stay sassy!

    I enjoy the name.

    To me it shows the franchise moving on to something new.

    It's been confirmed as the official name by SoE. I don't think they planned it that way but I think it just stuck. I think a title with "Norrath" would have been unique but may have been a mistake not to have "EverQuest" in the title. I'm sure the full title will change as time goes on via updates much like EQ2 is now so there is room for creativity.

    Ya, everyone seems to have missed that this is the official name and not a working title.

    Whatever the real name it will have an EverQuest or Norrath somewhere in there.

    I thought I remembered reading that the "Next" portion of it was supposed to refer to the "Next-Gen" game play, but I could be wrong =/

    Everquest Next -

    is confirmed as the title I believe on massively? Guess it stands for NEXT GEN?!

    I care more about the game itself, than a name.

"Everquest Next" just sounds like a brainstorming fail for a name. Especially for an mmo that is supposedly as epic as they and mmorpg staff are saying that it is. Obviously 'Everquest' belongs in the name. I think the word 'next' is the word I have the problem with. Just a quick 5 second thought process in my mind alone gives me "Everquest Revolution" or "Everquest Ultra" or perhaps something like "Everquest: Break of Dawn" as a much better name. I dunno. I bet you all can think of 100 names better then Everquest Next for a name, lol. Is this just me? Or does anyone else think NEXT just sounds dumb, too simple for a game obviously so advanced? ;-)

    You're right, it's only you two! image

     

    No, but seriously... it grows on ya :) ... I felt like you did in the beginning and now, I'm cool with it being the actual title. 

  • GhavriggGhavrigg Halifax, NSPosts: 1,059Member Uncommon
    I think the idea behind Everquest Next is that, much like EQ innovated quite a bit back in the day, EQN will be the NEXT big move forward in terms of innovation for the MMO genre. It fits well, if they manage to pull it off in such a way, so I don't mind it.

    I also agree the name could have been a lot more creative but I dont care if its called "Pizza Adventures" or "Flying butt Monkeys" as long as its really a next gen MMO thats polished I will play it. Almost had me sold just on the fact its EQ.

    =-D Only on a forum can optimism be called bad and pessimism the good thing =-D Welcome to the internet and forums.

    Any project they do has a "-Next" suffix attached to it while in development.  The version of EQ after this one will also someday be called "EQ Next".

    Actual release title is yet to be announced.
