I tried this once before to some varied level of success.
The first time it was with FFXI. It started off great at first, and we had a good amount of people in our "group". The idea is that we chose an older game (or newer) game and started off together. In FFXI we decided that we were going to ignore the "new" way of playing and play the old school way by leveling up from square one and doing all the older content together. It seemed like a fun and good idea. However, the group got really popular, really fast and me being a "casual" player. I just couldn't keep up with how fast we were growing. I made officers, and made some bad choices in that and we wound up as a zerg, and people started going against the original intentions of the group, which was to play together and play the "old" way. So that caused a split in the group as people were bickering over these newer players who were "rushing" to cap, instead of following the mission of the group. So eventually I grew tired of this and left. Many of the other good players we had left as well and the whole thing folded. However, while it was going strong it was a ton of fun, and I found that playing like this is one of the few things that keeps me entertained with MMO's now, since I've literally played them all.
So with that being said, I'd like to field who would be interested in something like this again. I will preface this by saying that I am not a hardcore player, and I consider myself super casual. I'm not going to be on all the time, and I don't expect anyone else to be either. If we have enough people playing, then usually it covers the "bases" and someone is always on, but its not something I enforce. Life is first, and games are second.
So, in saying that. Who would be interested?
If you are interested, what games come to mind?
In keeping with the casual approach I'd prefer something "Free to play". I'd also prefer something that has a PVP stake. I have fun facing other players, and its just a big deal for me. It's not a game breaker though.
Think about it.
FFXIV on Behemoth, FFXI on Eden, and Gloria Victis on NA.
