That tennis game for the wii (its multiplayer right?)? WHY IS THERE NO OPTION TO FILTER THE GAMES TO SEE ONLY CLIENT BASED MMORPGS ON THIS SITE?
There is more RP on the present Freelancer servers than there is in most of the actual MMOs out there at the moment. And Star Citizen will take it further. You are underestimating what mad modders can do.
What if I told you that the most populated Freelancer server offers you this already?
- So many different factions that I can't really count them. 40? probably more. Most of them interconnected.
- Full loot open world PVP
- Player constructable / destroyable bases. Actually persistent world.
- Player factions not related to any NPC faction.
- Player actions altering the world's story.
And the game is well over a decade old.
While everything you said is true, none of that makes the Freelancer servers massively multiplayer. Part of it is the fact that they have a low population cap on each server, and part of it is the fact that there aren't a ton of people playing on Freelancer servers. Same with SC. They will probably have 100-200 population caps on servers. Also, it is not going to be one giant persistent world... Each sever will be it's own persistent world. Nowhere have they said that there will be a central server/world where everyone can play.
SC is nowhere close to being the spiritual successor of Wing Commander. Games like X3 and later Evochron Mercenary were the direct successors. SC is just the next successor in line. Also, it is not the first of these type of games to have multiplayer...

No. Squadron 42 is the successor of Wing Commander.
Star Citizen will be the MMO that chris dreamed to do.
