    First I'd be like, "Did I step into the twilight zone or something?  On the same day every MMO died, and instead of discussing this incredibly unlikely and weird event all these gamers are just playing games like nothing happened!"

    Then I'd continue playing all the other games I normally play, but also search for a long-form PVE game to sate that need.  Things like Skyrim don't really do it for me, on account of the combat starting out dull and becoming outright broken after you've progressed a bit.  I need a game which continues to present interesting challenges to me, and Skyrim just breaks.

    Assuming MMOs were gone and were never coming back, I'd just keep doing what I'm doing now, playing whatever fun games I can find and not worrying too much about games that aren't fun.  I'm sure these forums would either go away or adapt to the new reality and I'd make my decision whether to spend time her or not based on that.

    Would I miss MMOs?  Nope, I don't miss them now.

    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

    The new Shadowrun reloaded game comes out at the end of the month. Supposed to be a pretty robust set of editing tools so you can make your own multiplayer fun. 

    If that game turns out well, I'll be MMOless for at least the next  months.

    I don't need MMO's,i actually did not like gaming period in my younger days.It is just now a convenient and cheap form of entertainment to keep me out of bars and wasting money other ways.Being older now i also cannot go out and play sports every night of the week,so gaming fills those boring slots.If no MMOs no biggie,i'll work out,watch movies visit friends,chat with friends,watch the boob tube,take dogs for walks ,tons of stuff to do when you feel bored.watch UFC :D

    If the genre died, and I was a developer, I wouldn't waste my time trying to revive it. It died for a reason...

    play my single player games..

     

    MMOs today are so single player and anti social anyways.Games like Fallout 3/Vegas, Elder Scrolls,The Witcher and the like would suffice in place of MMO's

    Same.  All MMOs have already died for me as I can never stay in any MMO for any moderate period of time and have more commitment to single player games than MMOs ever since the release of WoW's Cata.

    Would actually be thrilled if all MMOs died as hopefully there will be a commitment to producing good single player games again.

    If MMORPGs were to suddenly stop and cease to exist, I would not shed a tear.  If I wanted to play Online-Only-SPRPGs, I have some fine SPRPGs already that do not require that online connection to play, nor the possibility of trying to take my money on a regular basis.

    I would just continue to play D&D as I currently do and continue to wish there was a good replacement for the times when I want to play, but can't get the group together.

    I am one of just 3 other people who voted honestly that they would came here and rant. If all the MMOs announced they were closing tomorrow this forum would be on fire with endless debate for months or even years as to what "killed" the MMO. I would be working over time to convince everyone it was WoW's fault.

    if mmos die tomorrow i jump off..........the mmo wagon to other great genres less life consuming and equally or more fun. Oh wait, i do that already when i take breaks from the same sameness in mmos.

    Well im not even playing any mmorpgs at the moment as there are no good ones out there..

    So i will carry on playing the other games i play.

    I would not miss MMOs because this genre has become all about selling pixels in cash shop to enhance otherwise shallow content and limited gameplay. My hopes are on EQN, because previous two were very good games. If it flops then I think I'm done with MMOs for at least couple of years.

    I could live without MMO's. I could live without films, or books for that matter.

    An interesting question would have been. "Given a choice of losing MMO's, fantasy films, fantasy books or solo rpgs" which would you pick? As nearly all MMO's have a fantasy theme, that would be a fair one to ask. :)

  • GroovyFlowerGroovyFlower RdamPosts: 1,245Member

    I have so many games i still need to play or finish if all mmo's stopped i would move on to solo/multi/co-op player games.

    And rant here:P

    Interesting results. Most voted they will move on.

    However, there is plenty of rant here for those who claim the market no longer produces MMOs they like and they are not playing one. So while the question is not exactly the same, it shows an interesting phenomenon here.

    Which is, the vote does not seem to match behavior. I wonder if this is a case of cognitive dissonance. Too bad none of this information is gathered in a scientific manner. Otherwise, it can probably be the basis of an interesting psy paper.

    Or the poll was so flawed, you can take whatever you want from it, and run with it..  Just saying..

    I would start a kick starter campaign and be in a long line of people who took money for little to know work and/or experience.

    In all honesty it would be quite a relief; something less to waste my time on, perhaps I would find something more productive to do instead.

    I was brainstorming about how to translate my pencil and paper world into an virtual one for a decade before MMOs even existed.  I'd just go back to doing more of that.

    That is what i take from it .. most don't admit they like to rant here .. probably because of cognitive dissonance.

    And of course it is flawed. If it is scientific, i wouldn't be ruminating about it here, but working on a paper already.

    If MMO's died out, I'd put on a backpack, belt knife, grab my walking staff, and head out into the woods.   Why not be an adventurer for real?  (Without the combat, hopefully)
  • dgarbinidgarbini San Jose, CAPosts: 185Member
    I know myself, and probably many would hardly even notice.  I mean I keep up with the news and all but yeah been doing a lot of other things for a while now.

    I would wonder how such an absurd scenario came to be. Then watch some series.

    Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!
