Which games have the best housing systems in 2021

BrumeBrume Member UncommonPosts: 58
Its been a long time since my last ride into a MMO, one facet that I miss the most at the moment is the great housing mechanics. Which game do you believe have the best housing systems in 2021?

    Rust, Valheim, Ark, 7 Days 2 Die.

    All the best housing is in Survival games these days, there's no MMORPG that can even come close to their level of customization. 

    Top would be Rust though, with the Rust+ app you can actually monitor your base and control your in game devices and traps while you are away from the game.

    Not an MMORPG rather a multi player environment where you interact with thousands of players, 35 at a time, Fallout 76 has a great housing system which you can add defensive systems, NPC companions, crafting stations, player run vendors, underground vaults though a lot of the fun stuff is locked in the Atom shop.

    They recently added allowing players to have more than one camp though only one can be placed in a world at a time.

    What's nice is the player vendors advertise their contents drawing other players in to come purchase your wares 

    Of course, some players find ways to build trap camps or fun mazes, which makes visiting them more entertaining at times.

    They also added a new perk card management system which can only be invoked at a special terminal which players can put in their camps to further drive other folks to come visit to experience your great efforts.

    I am a murder hobo who normally eschews all housing (in ESO I have two empty one room closets for fast travel purposes) but even I am pretty proud of my camp  which some knowledgeable friends I met in game helped me build.

    Its up on a cliff with a terrific view of scorch queen nuke drops, often stand on the roof and watch them soar in before heading over to join in.

    I also turned a backyard pond into a swimming pool, has lights, deck chairs etc though one can't stay in too long as the water is slightly radioactive when wearing your swimware.

    Well, you also need to keep a .50 cal machine gun handy for the occasional super mutant attack which I've struggled to find a good spot in my trunks to store it  in. :)

    For me it will always be Everquest 2. They allow you to place items in different axis and to reduce and increase sizes. You can build lofts and just about anything from placing different items together and creating something new. 

    The premium houses and whole islands are where you can let your creativity run wild and the sheer amount of things a carpenter can make will have you hard pressed to find another game with that high number of craftable items. Truly lovely but hardly anyone will ever see your creativity because even if you place all your vendor items in the house it is highly doubtful anyone will visit it and see your beautiful home.

    These I did in 2006 I went to see my house as recently as yesterday. Fireplace I built by combining different items







    Loft I made with a carpet flooring. That is smoke from the fire below.

    Yeah it is tough to beat EQ2's housing. 

    Rift does a good job, UO's is okish and so was Wildstar but EQ2 was the best imho
    Not just in the housing itself but also how crafting tied into it

    Yes housing is a very lucrative source of real money in a lot of games. You will be gobsmacked by the number of people who never decorate or even pick up a broom in real life who will happily spend time doing exactly that (not the broom part) in a game.

    I agree that UO has an extensive housing system, the problem most MMORPG players have, including myself,  is that you need to actually play Ultima Online to access it.

    Well , UO is a very challenging game and will weed out weak players rather quickly ..

    That was rude. I just do not enjoy the game.
    Challenging how?
    I played it for 2 years 18 years ago.
    It is just not my kind of game.
    I prefer different genres for sandbox type games, not MMORPGs.
    I also prefer a different perspective. 
    We know you love the game.
    (We all have been beaten over the head with your love of it for years now)
    but it is really ok if others do not.  
    It's a shame Scorch

    I kind of liked Vanguard's housing. You did have to build it, and it wasn't instanced.

    Can someone find your UO house in the open world, blow down your walls with c4 and take or destroy everything you've ever gained on the server?

    If not its just more carebear housing.  >:)

    Yeah Vanguard had really nice housing.
    I think many would agree, liking a game's housing is aesthetics as well as function. 
    Having a nice looking house is just as (and to some people) more important than the function of it.

    I built this adobe in Vanguard from the bricks to the roof and then did the inside. Vanguard housing is not instanced. It was very vast and just got lost in all that land. I prefer instanced housing because the other one just creates huge real estate that is a pain to navigate and in SWG an eye sore with all their machines puffing and spluttering littering the landscape. Ugly as sin.

    Or drop a nuke on it even, incinerating everything you've worked for in an instance?

    Agreed, UO is for carebears.  ;)
