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

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)
Abstract world or micro/quantum world.

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
It is a false dilemma.
Why do I have to choose one? I don't play just one game. I like many of them.

Voted low fantasy. id love a game with a medieval setting. something around 500ad would be awesome.
Edit : Oh and based in the Europe region including Scandinavia!
Originally posted by greenreen 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.
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.

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.
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.
