Can I have a Star Wars MMO please with that type of graphics? Please, Disney?

 

[mod note, this is not really specific to one game - moved to The Pub and title changed to avoid being baiting]

    I don't think anyone would be foolish enough to waste such an engine to a Star Wars game.

    The fans will buy less advanced games anyway, as long as it says SW and has lightsabers.

    I'd like to see a post apocalypctic thriller kind of game made with that engine, the immersion would be astonishing.

    If you see such a video and your first thought is SWTOR, I don't even know what to say.

    Obsession?

     

    Also, as games move forward, why wouldn't ANY GAME LOOK DATED? Why just this one? rofl. Good lord.

    No, all MMOs coming out from here forward will look like 8 bit retro games and TOR will just look more advanced graphically as time goes on.

     

    This thread seems a little pointless.

    My thoughts exactly.  Everything some of these poster focus on is SWTOR, the sad part is some of them hate Swtor but yet always come to reference and compare everything to something they hate.  It's sure mind blowing isn't it.  

     

    I wonder if they drive down the road and are oh look that tree looks way better then swtor tree.

    There is a difference between "sytilzed art design" and "photorealistic art design".

    Has nothing to do with "looking dated".

     

  • CazNeergCazNeerg Puyallup, WAPosts: 2,198Member
    The whole point of the exaggerated art styles in games like WoW, TOR, Wildstar, and EQN is that they scale in quality depending on the strength of your machine, and don't get dated in the same way that attempts at "realistic" art do.  And "even more" dated?  You're showing your hand, considering TOR looks pretty comparable to other games that take the same approach to art direction.

    uh look, another one comparing multiplayer games to mmos.

     

    how many players can play it together again? seriously, this discussion is always the same.

    someone links a multiplayer game (usualy up to max 32 players) and compares it to a random mmo...........

     

    just why?

    SWTOR looked dated the day it came out.  Compare it to the graphics in Age of Conan which came out four years prior.

    The SWTOR character creation process alone was already ten years out of date when it release.  FOUR options in the body slider?  Midget, Slightly Normal, Giant Hulk, Fat Bastard.  Boy them's some options!

    You're confusing graphics quality with art style.

    In what sense?  What was it supposed to look like?

    What a bizzare post. Of course they will. Newer games with better graphics making previous games look dated! Whatever next...

    Why would you have to ask such a question? Ahh yeah of course its somehow those greedy SWTOR devs fault.

  • ShodanasShodanas PatrasPosts: 896Member Uncommon
    So, the OP sees a multiplayer game (with max 32 players if i'm not wrong) and thinks: which game do i hate the most? TOR of course. Let's go to MMORPG and make a post about both engines. What? one is just a multiplayer game and the other an MMO? Who cares, it's the MMORPG forums after all. 
  • djazzydjazzy louisville, COPosts: 3,578Member

    1. the Division is not an mmorpg

    2. different art style

    3. the graphics of the Division  makes all other games look dated, not just swtor (why single it out?)

    Just a very poorly veiled dig at stylized graphics from someone who prefers photo-realistic ones.

    If Disney comes out with a SPG RPG SW game with co-op, then they may want to look at that engine. But everyone is out of luck on a new SW MMO for a long time. No use in wasting time crying about choices made. As long as they are making money with TOR, it will continue on it's current path.

    Not to nitpick, but Disney won't be coming out with any games.  They outsourced all SW game development to EA, and have stated they have no interest in taking any role but licensing agreements when it comes to core gaming.

    Besides, no MMO is going to have graphics that good, not until they are old enough to no longer be considered "that good."

    "stylized" is the most wonderful euphemism for "lazy and low-tech"
