Yes, the problem with most questdriven MMOs is that over 90% of all the quests are fast and forgettable. There are just too many quick and easy quests thrown on you filling up the questlog and just doesn't feel worthwhile.Jean-Luc_Picard said:There's "quest driven" and "quest driven". Thing is most "quest driven" MMORPGs, like LOTRO or SW:TOR, or also WoW nowadays, are VERY linear, with little decision from the player when it comes to where to go next.Theocritus said:Every time I retry LoTRO I last about two days then get extremely bored....I think I have just burned out on quest driven games and that one may be the worst of the lot as it feels like thats about all you can do there.
Some other games broke that mold, though. Like GW2 and ESO.
Wurm is probably the most sandboxy game, that is true and the certainly is a sliding scale between themepark and sandbox. Eve is still rather high up on the sandbox scale though.SEANMCAD said:Personally I consider Eve and open world game not really 'sandbox'. the only sandbox MMO that I am aware of that I would consider sandbox would be Wurm. That said, I can see it going both ways
Not to mention that they claimed they would not charge players for expansions as stated by popular MMORPG Youtuber scionstorm. Anet is putting too much effort into their item mall and making items look way better than regular in game items, furthermore they didn't even come out with a single non item mall glider skin and they won't for mounts either if the past gives any indication. Can't wait for a new MMORPG cause Anet is being trash lately.
Wait, what? Where did they state that they would not charge for expansions? Source?
That is both outdated and mis-stated.
The original plan in 2012 was to not have paid expansions at all, but rather to update the game every 2 weeks with free content. That flat out failed to stick, as the breakneck pace resulted in inconsistent, typically poor update quality and a lack of polish. The game bled players and community opinion was becoming increasingly pessimistic.
This then evolved into bigger, less frequent free updates and paid expansions. The game is better for this, as the quality bar has gone up and the game has a clear direction going forward. Seriously, I am glad for expansions.
EQ was something totally new that invented a lot of new mechanics that are standard today. Just remaking it with new graphics would be rather the opposite of what Verant created, a tired old clone already at release instead of something truly unique.Darksworm said:Apparently some people do... Let them have it if someone is willing to deliver it.
I want no part in it.
Every time I try old games like EQ - I just can't. I don't think slapping better graphics on top of the same gameplay is going to change that one bit.
