    I already play Dofus for years now and I'm waiting for the Mad World a 2d mmorpg. If I had a decent official server I would still be playing Ragnarok Online today. I don't care about the graphics as long as the game is good and has a fluent gameplay.

    No, I would not.

    I will not speak for anyone else, but for me, I played those in the 90's and I didn't much like them then. I will stick with a modern design.

    I think the real question is WHY...would a dev create a 2d game (other than cost) today and take out over 50% of your market capability?

    Because its a different kind of art style? Some even prefer it, I love good sprite work for instance.

    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.

    Developers aren't just monkeys that churn out content. There is an aesthetic to the whole thing as well. And because of this they might want to also stretch their artistic wings.

    Having said that, I'm sure some might say "3d is very costly so what can we do with what we have at hand?"

    Heck, I've even toyed with making my own 2d game with one of those rpg maker kits. There are people who would play it and as long as development doesn't' cost a lot there is no reason why, if it's good, it can't make a profit.

    I can play Darkest Dungeon so i can't see why i couldn't play an MMO made in similar fashion. Compelling enough gameplay is all you need.

    I actually believe that high quality 2D sprite work and animating all of it is a LOT more expensive and time consuming then 3D modelling is, comparible to stop motion techniques versus computer rendering.

    hmmm I can't speak for it being more costly but I do believe it has it's own challenges in order to make it believable/workable.

    It's very much its own thing.





  • TorvalTorval Member LegendaryPosts: 19,660
    Sure will. I'll play 2D/sprite based, 3D, 3D emulating 2D as long as the aesthetic fits the game and the art has love and effort put into it. Tree of Savior is a great example of a beautiful game. I still play old school JRPG, RPGMaker, and Adventure Studio like games. I would absolutely hate if all game art was high production mo-cap realism.

    I'm playing some "2D" games right now.

    Bejewelled Twist - https://store.steampowered.com/app/3560/Bejeweled_Twist/

    Not to mention my favorite hack-n-slash games using 3D to emulate a 2.5D projection - Grim Dawn, WH40K: Inquisitor, TitanQuest AA, and Victor Vran.

    If I could play a PvE (Ken Rahuel) or limited PvP (Lands of Aden) Lineage 1 server again I would, with a few stipulations.

    Game play rules all for me, so yeah I'd def play an entertaining 2D MMORPG.

    Or I could imagine a game like Landstalker (on Genesis) with updated sprites and iso-jumps/puzzles to figure out, and treasures to find in all kinds of cool places really opening up exploration.

    Can a game like this not have fully voiced NPC's and stuff? If they're 'saving' on having 2D/Iso could they splurge on lore/story delivery?

    I can still read, so not a deal breaker for me, but would be cool to have like a SWTOR voice acting in a 2D world...ha

    Oh yeah, like this Mad World game, sweet.

    Gut Out!

    What, me worry?

  • MendelMendel Member EpicPosts: 3,277
    Sure.  Most of my favorite games are 2D -- Darkest Dungeon, Thea: The Gathering, etc.  I'd love a good 2D MMORPG, as long as the developers used the savings of 2D art over 3D to give far more options and gaming systems, and not just a means to make a cheaper game.

    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.
