slightly misleading title.
i dont mean have a blank slate. i definately like atmosphere, and culture.
what i dont like, is when games (and they all seem to do this) irrevocably mix gameplay with the story board or vision the devs created.
i acknowledge that game designers are very creative and expressive people, and i applaud them for their vision. what i do not always enjoy, is having to play in the same story line they have created.
races and classes, for example. i am in favor of as much customization as possible. i think the visual aspect of character design should be as up to the player as possible. this was one of the most ground breaking aspects of City of Heroes/Villains. letting people choose from an extremely broad variety of options. guilds could design their own races, or individuals could go as unique as they wanted. the same goes for classes. offer a huge list of abilities, purchasable through a given number of creation points, and let players build as they see fit.
what i dont want to keep doing, is endless playing (essentially watching) the same archetypal movie over and over again, which is pretty much what all MMO's do at present.
