    none.

    Middle Earth Online "sounds" intriguing but in all honesty I have yet to see one released mmo that didn't have its detractors.

    And that wasn't even released!  I'm sure there would be people  bitching about one thing or another same as LOTRO.. They would just be bitching about different things.

    I'm a firm believer that a game should be judged "on release". If a game doesn't release then there is very little to evaluate.

    Swg would be my pick, I still miss running a shop, moving your harvestors etc etc.. Or just grinding mobs and materials with a droid by your side. There was something very relaxing about it.

    Probably would check our Tabula Rasa if it would come out now, never played it much.

  • GravargGravarg Harker Heights, TXPosts: 3,332Member Uncommon

    1 SWG

    2 SWG

    3 SWG

    4 SWG

    5 SWG

     

    That's about it :)

    As in the ops post swg, middle earth onine and star trek online.  Aswell there was a steampunk fps style mmorpg that was in the works and darkfall or mortal online, I know they're still around but they never delivered on what they promised and never will so I'm counting that part as cancelled.

    Tabula Rasa

    Did I mention Tabula Rasa?

    Star Wars Galaxies

    City of Heroes

    Stargate Worlds (I'm not a huge fan of the t.v. show but the game looked very interesting)

    Do you mean released today as they were back then, or released today and up to todays standards?

    Bringer of Eternal Darkness and Despair, but also a Nutritious way to start your Morning.

    I can only think of 2

    - Dark and Light

    - SWG

    Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.

    1. Jumpgate evolution

    2..... The rest of them should stay canceled

    SWG without a doubt. 

    I'd like to see it polished up for modern times though.  I messed around with the project that will remained unnamed, and the interface is ludicrously buggy by today's standards.

    I'm really hoping The Repopulation can deliver some of that old magic, when it releases.  It's not SWG, but it has similar freedom of experience, and is much more modern.

    A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

    1. Tabula Rasa

    2.  Earth and Beyond  

    3. Star Gate Worlds

But at least they would have gotten an interesting game that centers around exploring the most iconic location in the fantasy genre, instead of an instanced dungeon crawler that plays the same as WoW. 

     

    I'd rather have them try and fail than not try at all.

    None, they were all cancelled for good reason. SWG is the only candidate but Sony ruined that game shortly after launch so why play that monstrosity in 2014?
  • fantasyfreak112fantasyfreak112 Orange County, CAPosts: 499Member
    Ironically the problem is too many games are not getting cancelled/shut down; such as, Vangaurd being put on autopilot for years while hopeful players pray for a meaningful update and are disappointed month after month. Their money could be better spent on a game worthy of their $$.

    Shadowbane.

    While MEO was much more interesting in concept than LotRO turned out to be, LotRO still did a very good job capturing the Middle Earth feeling, and it's a solid, honest themepark.  It has more character than most games do today.  I'd like to see someone do a much better job, but not if it's just going to be another themepark.

    As much as I hated the NGE like everyone else, it's still a more interesting game than most on the market today.  Toward the end, the devs started bringing some of the pre-NGE features back and making the game interesting again.  To be honest, if they released a nice cleaned up NGE today, I'd sign up immediately.  I'd prefer a cleaned up version of pre-NGE, but I'd take anything SWG.

    Fantasy Earth Zero if it was kind of done differently. But I appreciated that if you had say, the situational awareness of a stump, you'd get reamed.

    Would be nice but come on.............we're talking about SoE here. The only game of theirs I even found playable in the past decade was Planetside 2.

    I'd probably try SWG again if it hadn't been cancelled.

    Didn't really play any other notable ones, but I was interested in trying out these:

    Tabula Rasa

    Earth & Beyond

    Chronicles of Spellborn

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

    1. City of h/v

    2. MxO

    3. SWG

    4. Huxley(not sure if it counts or not)

    While MEO was much more interesting in concept than LotRO turned out to be, LotRO still did a very good job capturing the Middle Earth feeling only in artifice. Most of the NPCs are mute with no story to them. The world is heavily gated, with invisible walls and instances locking you out of areas, and lore breaking bits all around. But the art is fantastic. , and it's a solid, honest themepark. Er, it's a solid dishonest WoW clone. It was advertised as a sandbox for about 4 years before it went in for a cash grab on the WoW casual market. That stinks of sleezey business, not honest "this is what we want to make!" decisions.  It has more character than most games do today. Sure, but that's from the art and the setting, and the gameplay goes out of its way to ruin that character.   I'd like to see someone do a much better job, but not if it's just going to be another themepark.

     

    Agreed.
