    Why two Sci-fi options? Star Wars and Trek are both classed as Space Operas.

    They aren't really space opera, they are very limited in their scope.

    Sci-Fi or a Warhammer 40,000 universe type setting.

    I chose steam punk because I haven't seen it done much. It's fantasy to me so it could have been either. In my own game I'm coding in simple machinery mechanics. That isn't the story of the game though. The only thing I have for story other than NPC personalities is that there is a problem with animal breeding so they are in scarce supply and this is part of why you have to hunt instead of being able to run across groups of creatures sitting around. I like the muted colors with the metals being shiny in places as contrast. I've been thinking about making parts of the game black and white to further emphasize the metal portions. Silver and Copper are just pretty to me. I think I got the idea from cars, when you look around they are mostly some version of silver color. It's like a default color palette all around us. I also noted the silver car trend when I went on G Street View looking around European streets. Somehow the silver part translates to black and white to me.

    Low fantasy is basically like medieval UK but with very sparse magic thrown in.  (as opposed to high fantasy which is just shit outside Tolkein)

    everything but high fantasy

     

    get sick when I see it

     

    I can only stand brutal violent low fantasy like Age of Conan (fatalities FTW)

  • DMKanoDMKano Gamercentral, AKPosts: 8,541Member Uncommon

    Abstract world or micro/quantum world.

    I would say high fantasy, but I prefer something more specific.  I really like the forgotten realms and the old school D&D 2nd edition classes.  The closest thing to forgotten realms is probably the Lord of the Rings, but it doesn't have quite as many fun classes/things.  The Lord of the Rings is a lot more serious in tone.  It's part of why I didn't enjoy the MMO that much.  Then there's high fantasy games like Dragon Age.  If you compare it to a game like Baldur's Gate 2/Ice Wind Dale it's very different.  There are subtle changes in class/race restrictions, how races behave/act, and how the people act.  The art style can also have a large impact.  I'm not a huge fan of Dragon Age's artwork and ideas of high fantasy.  Though I'm not a huge fan of sci-fi I've always like the Mass Effect/Knights of the Old Republic games.  There is something about the worlds and characters that are really enjoyable.  I've played a number of different high fantasy and other genre MMOs over the years, but the only ones I really liked were Ultima Online, Everquest, and WoW.

    No offence meant dude, but if you look up the definition of space opera, you will quite literally find "Star Wars" in there.    So yeah, it's kinda redundant. 

     

    Personally my vote would be for cyberpunk/sci-fi type of deal like Altered Carbon or Blade Runner.    Less aliens more humanity and sci-fi.

    None of those options

    I want a Cyber Punk world, Blade Runner style

  • nariusseldonnariusseldon santa clara, CAPosts: 22,441Member

    It is a false dilemma.

    Why do I have to choose one? I don't play just one game. I like many of them.

    High fantasy, it seems to be the only genre without guns or lasers.
  • Cephus404Cephus404 Redlands, CAPosts: 3,675Member
    Sorry, Star Wars is space opera.  Star Trek is science fantasy.  I want hard science fiction.  If I never see another elf waving a wand again, it'll be too soon.  I detest high fantasy with a passion.  Fuck magic.

    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

    Only Steam Punk MMO out there now is City of Steam.  It's not picking up clients because of lack of advertising and an almost Vindictus type play style.

    HIgh fantasy but preferably non-Earth and non-Tolkienesque.  Also, I would like tech kept out of it.  No munchkins flying helicopters, or that sort of thing.

    I would like a fantasy setting, which isn't populated by Elves, Dwarves and Goblins... and spiders, boars and bears!

    Sure, it is much harder to build a world where every mob needed to be designed, but it would go a large step of the way in removing the feeling that "I've already been here in 20 other games".

    They should look into the animal kingdom and look at the many ways that animals adapt, fight, mate, behave, etc and use that as their starting point. It would inspire hundreds of new creatures - all with different personalities and behaviors.

    I personally never want to play a fantasy MMO filled with elves, dwarves and the like ever again.

    Low fantasy that's heavy on realism.

    What?  Ugh no it's not.  Low fantasy doesn't mean low magic, and it has nothing to do with the setting.  Low fantasy means non-epic, non-war-story.  Low fantasy is often comical or romantic.  An anime like Ranma 1/2 is low fantasy.  A tv show like Adventure Time is low fantasy.  A movie like Monsters Inc. is low fantasy.

    I want to help design and develop a PvE-focused, solo-friendly, sandpark MMO which combines crafting, monster hunting, and story.  So PM me if you are starting one.

    High Fantasy here, I like a lot of space shows, but not big on playing space mmos. 

     

    I did like TSW, but high fantasy is still #1 for me.
