If this next group of MMORPG's are not good, I am DONE!

Year in and year out we are promised this and that from this Developers.  And year and and year out they release absolute lack luster games our way.  I first was snagged into this genre by Earth and Beyond, and while I know that was a pretty crappy game, it still was my first MMO and I fell in love.  That love affair lasted to about 2009 (with various MMO's) and since then it just seems like MMO developers are releasing games that are even worse then before.

 

So I have said to myself, if this next group of MMO's (ESO, Final Fantasy, Wildstar or EQ2) fail to give me what I want or rather need in a game.  It might, no it will, be time to go back to Consoles....

 

Has anyone else ever felt like this?

    Only thing that could push me back to consoles is if they stop making computers.

     Because MMORPGs are the only genre of PC games?

    Ok and wtf has consoles got to do with anything? You act like everyone who plays MMORPG's has come from consoles and so if not playing MMORPG we will go and play on a shitty console? what? I will play a NON MMORPG on a PC thanks.

    Consoles... Really OP? MMO's could disappear altogether and I'd still go to the PC for my gaming fix.

    If you don't want to get let down here are my easy tips:

    Don't pre-order, don't buy anything in a cash shop until the game has launched, use kickstarter at your peril. Wait until a MMO launches, read the reviews not the previews. Then make your decision, I have never been really unhappy with a MMO I have played but then I always wait for the reviews.

    Simples.

    I am afraid that is what I will eventually do...

     

    But who know's, when I say I am done with something I generally stick to it.. For the most part.

    Because MMORPGs are the only games that run on a PC! You've read it here first!

    I'd rather cut my both hands off than to ever buy a console. Look e.g. Skyrim on PC vs Skyrim on a console... no thanks, I stick to my PC.

    If EQ:Next and Archeage reveal to suck, I will simply stick to GW2, casually. With new content every two weeks, that game has enough to do to keep me busy until something else that's also good is coming out.

    I'll go back to single player RPGs. I think I outgrew MMORPGs since I'm 30 now so I'll be playing Wildstar Online just so I can get into something and if EQN sucks then that will be it for me. Maybe take up FPS games or try some serious matches in DOTA as opposed to casual randoms.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    So you will flee back to consoles, eh ?

     

    You realise that almost all the upcoming AAA MMO's are going to be on console too ?

     

    There is no escape !

     

    Muhahahahahaaa !

    Same here, Consoles suck !.....I'm about fed up with mmos too, lets see what ff14 and Wildstar have. I may give up too.

  • GorweGorwe Member EpicPosts: 5,946

    EQNext is our last hope. Let's Pray that it delivers. 2.8. can't come soon enough >.<

    As for this troll-bait poll, there are other games on pc besides MMOs. Pure RPGs, world class RTSs/TBSs, MOBAs... Enough if you ask me ;)

  • stragen001stragen001 Member UncommonPosts: 1,720

    Nothing could ever drive me to play my games on consoles. Even if there were no MMORPGs I would still play my single player games on PC. 

     

    Also, I think you mean EQ Next instead of EQ2..........

    "Will you be going back to Consoles if this next round of AAA MMO's fail to deliver?"

    I am already playing console games. Games like Deus Ex:HE and Dishonored are much better than most MMOs. I do play some MMOs like STO because there is no other choice for Star Trek RPG.

    So i am not "done" with MMOs nor i will go "back" to consoles, because i am already there.

    I play both PC and console (PS3) games and will continue to do so. MMO's arent' the only games to play. Heck, I have HUNDREDS of games on Steam I haven't finished yet.
  • MikehaMikeha Member EpicPosts: 8,862
    If you don't want to be disappointed then don't buy before you try. There are no mmos coming this year that will be worth playing. In the meantime stop playing these wow clones and try other types of games.  Games like Age Of Wushu, Darkfall, Vanguard, Lineage 2, Eve and Final Fantasy XI.
  • NovusodNovusod Member UncommonPosts: 912

    Never going back to consuls and have not owned one since the PS1 and N64 in the late 90s.

     

    There are already some good Niche MMOs out there. People don't like niche MMOs and say they are failures because a million other people don't play them. Yes, the industry is in a dark age right now but people should find ways to make their own fun.

  • DMKanoDMKano Member LegendaryPosts: 20,470

    There are so many awesome mmorpgs on the market right now, there is not enough time

    Eq1, AoC, Rift, Vanguard, Aion ..... and the list goes on

    Upcoming - Archeage, Blade and Soul, EQN, CU etc....

    not even gonna get into other MMOs like MOBAs.

     

    So many awesome games to play, so many awesome games on the horizon.

     

    We are living in the golden years of video gaming right now! 

    The glass is half full.

  • KrimzinKrimzin Member UncommonPosts: 661

    I understand that this is your opinion, but if you are an MMO Fan then suck it up. There are always going to be bad games and hopefully we've gotten the all out of the Genre for awhile.

    Saying you aren't going to play MMOs if the next one is bad is like saying you wont drive if your next car is a LEMON

     

     

     

    Just because I'm a gamer doesn't mean I drive a Honda.

    Yeah. I tried Eve and it was a big disappointment. I would much rather play console games like Dishonored (which is a lot more fun than most MMOs i have played).

    I think its less that games are getting worst, its more that we have so many games available to us and we have become far more stingy. We are VERY spoiled now, which tends to give games little chance, even IF it is a good game in its own right. Rather then looking for the next game to impress, I think its best to look at what originally caught you into your first MMo and really think of what you want. Rather then judging harshly, why not just see if a game has what you want and if its leaning in the direction you want it to go and just stick with it and support it?

  • MrG8MrG8 Member UncommonPosts: 105

    I agree.. but I dont think we'll see "the perfect" MMO anytime near.. we're in a period now where you play games "for free" and where the companies get money from other stuff inside the game, making the games much more simple and boring, making the games only last a few levels.

    I too hope the next big MMOs will give me satisfaction, but sadly I think I already know they most probably wont.
