I've been waiting for a good one since 2005 and it hasn't happened, just been a bunch of WoW clones or weird Asian grindfests. We have the PS4, Xbox One and Steam bringing gaming into the next generation of gaming and I just look at MMOs and think "why are they still stuck in 2004" and "why do they look like they're stuck in 2004"? lol. They just haven't evolved, especially from the amazing ideas SWG or PS or EVE Online gave us in those early days, when the tech couldn't really probably handle it, yet they innovated far more than any MMO today.
I was expecting massive seamless worlds, I was expecting by the time SWTOR came out, we'd be flying from the ground into space with no load times. I was expecting to have like 100k people on a single server like EVE but for an Avatar based game where we could all be in a huge world creating content.
Instead we got FF14 released this year, an MMO that managed to go backwards from 1.0 some how and now you have load times even in zones, which I'm guessing was made for the PS3 but the PC version has to follow. Then you get to the gameplay of FF14 and it felt like I was back in 2004, doing kill 10 rats quests all over again... is this what the genre has come to? People are excited over this crap?
I just don't care any more tbh and the MMO genre seems to mean online game these days as everyone, even this site calls anything from Diablo to Dota 2 an MMO for some weird reason.
What ever happened to Raph Koster? I wanna play an MMO from him again.
But looking at the future of gaming and with these new consoles coming out, I'm just gonna move on, Dayz felt to me more of an MMO than anything that has come out in years, felt more hardcore too, just a shame SA is taking so long.
