there are currently 3 Major MMO's under development. and they top the most popular lists at MMORPG.com.
-Star Wars : The Old Republic
-Final fantasy XIV
-Guild Wars 2.
With the recent flow of information on GW2 i finally have come to the conclusion that i have enough information to visualise most of the gameplay of these games.... And while it all sounds very awesome, i have been as enthousiastic over all MMO's in development since EQ and DAoC, of which only WoW could keep me playing for longer then 3 months.
The rest of these games despite being good games could not capture me and many of you around here. Many of these games made the fault of releasing to early. And others where just not enough to my taste. Currently when i look at all these games, i can come to the conclusion that none could live up to the hype surrounding them.
And while i have a soft spot for these 3 upcomming games in my heart , i am affraid they might dissapoint me again in the end.
SW:ToR is developed by the only studio that comes close to blizzard when viewing their success with fantasy/SF themed games, and the story part might turn this game intoo a brand new experience, also the mob AI and combat sounds promissing.
Final Fantasy is also a product known for its great stories and the first game still has a huge fanbase after all these years. Great graphics with awesome annimations and a multi classing job system promise a lot. Tough FF combat might be a bit to slow for my personal taste so i have personal reservations about this game.
GW2 has cought my attention with the recent information flow and i did some read ups. The game promises it all the good things from GW are still there (Story telling, competitive PvP, awesome graphics) and add to that the promised world vs world PvP (kinda RvR idea) , the fully open world with minor instancing (WoW idea), characters have full freedom of movement (jump. swim, climb trees) and characters can use objects near to them to their advantage, and did i say how much i love their new magic annimations
But in the end i am afraid that all this hype will make me dissapointed in the end.
What i need is a grade an MMMO that gives me a new fresh MMO experience. That gets me excited to play again and discover their world.
