The fact that you give Microsoft all the credit for everything related to Freelancer when CR was the original visionary behind it shows you are the equal but opposite of a fanboy when it comes to Chris Roberts.Kefo said:Lol yeah they bought him out and kept him on "as a consultant" and then proceeded to gut the game of everything that was a stupid idea or wouldn't work or was a waste of resources which sounds like they really listened to himErillion said:Funny that Microsoft got him back into the project as consultant ASAP.Kefo said:You mean Microsoft booted CR out cause he's a idiot, pump money and time into it for an additional 3 years after cutting out all the unrealistic crap CR dreamed up. But yeah Microsoft is evil for "spicing up a quarterly report" 3 years after the fact.
Maybe not an idiot after all ;-)
I suppose it depends on how you define titan. I consider EVE and Runescape to be titans because they were major MMOs with sizeable audiences 10 years ago, they are major MMOs with sizeable audiences today, and they will likely be major MMOs with sizeable audiences 10 years from now.aliven said:Eve is no where near the titan of industry. Titans of industry are Wow, FF14, GW2 and ESO. Rest live on scraps.
Killing and monsters didn't start with D&D. Concepts like levels and classes either did, or at least it was the first time those concepts were implemented in a highly popular format. Sort of like Tolkien wasn't the first fantasy writer but he is what popularized the genre.nariusseldon said:That is so general that you may not say anything. Having monsters is a feature of D&D. Doh, lots of games have monsters.Eldurian said:@DMKano I think you are kind of arguing semantics here. My point was there are features of D&D that still carry over into literally every MMO in existence. Not that there wasn't any stepping stones in the transition from D&D to all modern MMOs.
Since you are at it, why don't you say "there are features of D&D that still carry over into every SHOOTER in existence" too? (hint: what is that feature? You can kill something in the game.)
