Planetside and Necreon are the only 2 that use the FPS based gameplay thusfar, however it is my belief that this will be the new trend that game developers cling to in the not so distant future. My reasoning for this is simple...sandwich style pvp and pve is boring!!! Also BF1942, CS, UT 2004, whatever FPS may be your favorite also tends to get boring after a few rounds.
If a developer can seemlessly blend these two genres together, without favoring one over the other, that game developer would rake in a huge # of people that are getting sick of the "same old thing". Most of the new MMORPG's imho are just clones of EQ and UO, with a lot more bells and whistles.
I know that there are going to be hardcore rpgers and hardcore fpsers that are satisfied with the status quo, that will probably flame me for this thread, but damnit it's time to evolve and move forward.
I know that this is not a revolutionary idea...ie planetside and necreon...but my own circle of gamers that I communicate with regularly all agree that something needs to shake up the mmorpg community, and we believe that is skill based combat...ala CS and the rest... this would definately be a step in the right direction.
Opinions please...I am only stating mine, so now it's your opportunity to state yours....Xaldor
